In order to protect intangible cultural heritage (ICH), China enacted the
Intangible Cultural Heritage Law of the People’s Republic of China on 25th February 2011. This law is the first one that comprehensively covers various sectors of rules related to ICH and it emphasises an important role of ‘protection’. However, although this law is regarded as a landmark for the protection of ICH, most contents of this law mainly refer to public law whereas little content refers to private law. As this law has a strong taste of administration law, it is no
helpful for resolving the issues in the protection of private legal rights.
