Cultural and creative industry talks IP in Beijing

Around 200 professionals from the film and copyright industry and media attended a conference in Beijing on Monday, discussing intellectual property incubation in China amid the country's drive to protect intellectual property.

"Beijing gathered about 7,500 filmmaking agencies and 200,000 professionals in the field, about one-third of the country's industry," said Mei Song, director of the Beijing cultural and creative promotion center, adding the conference was key to promote the development of culture copyrights. The conference, held by Beijing Gold Eggplant Cultural and Media Co, a copyright incubation agency, discussed how to make popular IP content into successful films.

"It is key to make a match", said Tan Huiling, co-founder of the company.

"Discovering high-valued potential copyright content and bringing professional producing and directing teams, as well as film investment bodies together can turn popular IP content to popular film. And this is what our company aims for," she added.

The cultural and creative industry accounts for about 14 percent of the capital's GDP, Mei said, creating a foundation for prosperous development of the industry.
