WIPO set “Get up, stand up. For music” as the theme of World IP Day on April 26, 2015, which has been perplexing people all over the world who enjoy, create, record and distribute music. This research will explore the impact of new technologies such as those applied in the recording and access of music and capital on the music industry in China in order to truly understand the relationship between property ownership and technology and capital. Site LI’s hypothesis is that it is the unique Chinese ownership system and the country’s political institutions that play significant roles in this process through manipulation of laws and other political/economic/cultural regulations in regard to new technologies and capital. The music industry has suffered most and has had to change drastically. Ideally, this research will be deepened using cases from other countries.
