Example text

Vice-Minister of Interior Chi Yuan-Pu opened the meeting with a warning that if book piracy were not stopped in time, "the consequences would be very serious," and he expressed the desire for new legislation that would offer protection to authors and copyright owners. Prominent author Chen Chi-Yin stated that he had heard Taipei reprints of Western books referred to sarcastically as "the most famous special product of Taiwan" and that he felt shamed by such comments; he urged that the new law contain severe penalties for piracy.

A local agent is appointed and he receives stocks of catalogues. These are circulated to likely customers and orders are placed. The funds are remitted to Formosa by the agent and the books are then mailed by book post direct to the address of the buyer. As long as the buyer does not offer these books for resale, neither Lord Dundee nor anyone else can prosecute him or seize his books. It is important to note the author of this letter, because he was a man well qualified to speak. Mr. Kendall—a large dynamic figure with a commanding mein and a dominant disposition-—has on several occasions been referred to as the "James Bond of the publishing world," and indeed, although the EB AND THE GATHERING STORM 51 epithet overdramatizes his role, it is not wholly inapt.

Brett then stated that relatively simple measures on the part of the Government of the Republic of China could alleviate this situation, although he did not state what these measures would be. Presumably they could have included signing the jUniversal Copyright Convention or concluding a bilateral treaty with the United States protecting reciprocally the literary properties of each other's nationals. Knowing full well the Chinese fear of taking such action, however, it is more likely that the ABPCATPI would have settled for something less, such perhaps as: (1) simplification of registration and enforcement procedures; and (2) barring the exportation from Taiwan of reprinted Western books.
