China's copyright watchdog said that 3,908 websites have been shut down in a crackdown on copyright infringement in the past five years.

The National Copyright Administration investigated 22,568 piracy cases nationwide and deleted more than six million links to pirated publications during the period.

In cooperation with other departments, the crackdown targeted online literature, music, videos, games, animation and software, as well as mobile apps, cloud storage and e-commerce platforms. 

Online copyright infringement has been curbed and the public's awareness of copyright protection has been raised remarkably, said the administration.
