New textbook standards unveiled

The central government recently drafted new standards for paying copyright holders

when their works are collected into textbooks. Set to take effect next month, the

regulations require publishers to pay a writer 300 yuan ($49.3) for every 1,000

Chinese characters, 300 yuan to use a piece of music and 200 yuan for a picture -

400 yuan if it appears on the cover.
