The study examined laws in the US and Europe and reviewed several cases revolving around TPMs. It was aimed at making recommendations to the Chinese government in regards to possible copyright law reform saying that anti-circumvention laws should take a balanced approach so as to encourage content creators to create new content while allowing interoperability to allow consumers to enjoy content legally as well as allow innovation in related industries.
