BEIJING, April 3 (Xinhua) -- China's National Copyright Administration and the Shanghai World Expo organizer will jointly launch a work station to provide copyright services for participants to the Expo.

The work station will provide legal consultancy, take copyright-infringing complaints, authorize the use of copyright and mediate disputes, according to a circular issued by the General Administration of Press and Publication on Friday.

These services would be carried out by national and Shanghai copyright administrations and the Bureau of the Shanghai World Expo Coordination,according to the circular.

The circular, which does not say when the center will be launched, is the latest government move to protect intellectual property rights ahead of the Expo.

The National Anti-Pornography and Anti-Illegal Publications Office on Monday announced a fresh campaign to crack down on illegal publications and harmful information to ensure a wholesome environment for the upcoming Expo.
