Nowadays, with the rapid development of digital and network technology, the development of creative culture, especially music, literature, film and television, has shown a new opportunity in the West since twenty-first Century. At the same time, it also brings a subversive challenge to the original cultural industry. In such a technological environment, there is a great deal of debate about whether intellectual property protection promotes innovation in the European and American academic circles. In contrast, Chinese digital and networking is started in a relaxed environment. This study is from this starting point to study the situation in China. Because in China, the intellectual property protection system is a parking lot. The research team also took this issue to explore the role of digital and networking technology and the participation of Internet companies in the development of China's creative culture industry.
