e months, if not up to half a year. Hong Kong film director Peter Ho-sun Chan once said the image restoration of his most a

cclaimed work Comrades: Almost a Love Story cost 1.5 million yuan ($224,000), excluding the expenses for restoring the soundtrack.

Faced with hundreds old TV series to restore, Youku was naturally reluctant to throw such a huge sum of money at every project. Their

technicians then turned to artificial intelligence to develop programs that could automatically enhance the tapes.

“If a lengthy manual frame-by-frame restoration might be able to achieve a full score of 10, at least we could turn an ‘unw

atchable’ series into one that achieves a score of 7 to 8 points within a shorter period of time using mass digital techn

iques,” says Jiang Wenfei, a leading technician and head of Youku’s 30-member restoration team.

He estimates that a single episode takes one working day to restore using traditional methods.

Pei explains that correcting the color cast is the most common problem they have to fix. “People’

s faces sometimes look like they are covered by dirt (on film), and their black hair turns green or blue.”

effects than benefits from the additional chemotherapy, which cost about 13,400 yuan ($2,000) per patient.

The findings, published in the journal Lancet Oncology in 2012, drew the attention of

Western experts, and the United States and Europe revised their treatment guidelines.

More recently, Ma added a new drug to the original dual drug ch

The core of the problem lies in whether stock-image providers get authorization from copyright owners, he added.

Zhao Zhanling, a legal researcher who specializes in intellectual p

roperty cases at the China University of Political Science and Law, agreed, but said copyri

ght owners and institutes given copyright authorization should respect this right and not abuse it for gain.

He said stock-image companies need to make authorization a priority in their opera

tions and pay more effort to finding a balance between commercial interest and public interest.

The litigation right that is to safeguard copyrights must not be abused, he added.

exposed disordered copyright management by stock-image providers, legal

professionals said the increased efforts to protect copyright should be applauded.

For example, the National Copyright Administration has launched crackdowns against pira

ted works every year, aiming to increase copyright protection through administrative measures.

Last year, it took online short videos, audio material, literary articles and music as major target

s. It eliminated 1.85 million web links with content that infringed copyright, and confiscated 1.23 million pirated works.

Wang, the Beijing lawyer, said he appreciated governme

nt attempts to protect copyright, but said such efforts are still insufficient.

He called for the country to improve copyright-related laws as soon as poss

ible, and especially to issue a specific rule for footage, pictures or other photographic works.

es in Shanghai, called for stock image providers to give stricter self-examinatio

ns on their source of copyrights, “as the unclear source could also bring them a string of disputes”.

She said some stock image platforms that file a lawsuit for one image improperly used

remains controversial, adding it is believed to be a waste of judicial resources.

“One company might have improperly used a dozen of pictures on social media then it will face a doz

en of lawsuits. The amount of litigations will be huge for judicial resources to tackle,” she explained.

She said she hopes a stock image company, regulated with clear authorization, can resort more to non-litiga

tion solutions when dealing with infringement, for example, through negotiation and mediation.

To better regulate the image copyright market and balance the commercial providers, she also suggested the public to

set up a shared platform of stock image where uses, authors and content creators can authorize each other.
