This year's National Day also marks the first day for the national anthem law to take effect, in order to ensure appropriate use of the song "March of the Volunteers."

Inappropriately using the national anthem at private occasions, commercial events or as background music in public places will be taken as illegal. Violators of the law, including those who maliciously modify the lyrics or play/sing the national anthem in a distorted or disrespectful way, could be detained for up to 15 days or held criminally liable.

Meanwhile, days before the National Day, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film, and Television also issued a notice, requiring national broadcasters including China National Radio, China Central Television and China Education Television to broadcast the national anthem at 10:00 am on important national festivals and anniversaries.
