Copyright Authority Takes Aim at Exclusive Licenses for Music

The National Copyright Administration (NCA) met this week with representatives from 20 music companies, including heavyweights like Universal Music Group and the China Record Corp., according to a statement on the NCA’s official WeChat account.
