A Software Copyright Certificate (SCC) is required for every mobile app published in China. It is a legal document registered with the Chinese Copyright Administration Bureau, proving ownership of the app and copyrighting it.
The SCC is used to prove and protect the copyright of your mobile app in China. It contains a unique identification number, the name of the app, and the company that owns the certificate. The name of the app must match the name on the certificate. If the app name changes, a new certificate must be applied. This isn’t a trademark, but it proves the ownership of the app to the Chinese app stores.
We use this certificate to post apps on Chinese app stores and remove unauthorized copies of your app using the same or similar names.
No. China isn’t covered by intellectual property registration in the rest of the world. It has its own copyright and trademark registration systems and protections.
Any company, Chinese or non-Chinese, can apply for an SCC, though it is easier for a Chinese company to do so. Even though we register many apps on behalf of our clients, our agreement makes it clear that the sole copyright for the app rests with the app owner and not us.
You need one SCC per app. Please remember that if the names of either your company or app change, you will need a new certificate.
About 2 to 4 weeks.
By providing a small sample of your source code, you receive an additional layer of protection. This small snippet can be used to prove ownership in a copyright dispute.

There are three options for foreign companies to register an SCC:
