China has failed to relax its restriction on the number of foreign films that it allows to be theatrically distributed despite a March 19 deadline to do so, the Los Angeles Times reported today (Wednesday). A ruling by the World Trade Organization gave China until March 19 to open its markets to foreign-produced movies, music, books and other entertainment. Although it had initially agreed to comply, it said in a status report to the WTO that it hopes its members will "understand the difficult and complicated situation China is facing during the process of implementation." But Steven Dickinson, of the law firm Harris & Moure, which focuses on international legal issues with China, told the times. "I fully expected China to miss this deadline. ... China's current policy is to strengthen control over domestic media and further restrict foreign access. Thus the WTO ruling is 180 degrees contrary to very strong current movements in Chinese policy."
