TV, one of the traditional four media, is closely related to human life. With the development of modern industrial electronic technology and the diversified needs of the audience, the TV industry market competition is more and more intense. In recent years, as the “Running man” “Dad, where are we going” and a series of various shows come into our vision, more and more legal disputes about such thing arise. This paper will first talk about the attribute of TV program format, which means whether it belongs to the object of copyright protection. Then the paper will discuss the standard of infringement through the way of comparing the case of Europe and the United States, and also analyze the inherent infringement criteria which mean “contact” and “substantial similarity”. At the end, in order to provide the appropriate standards of how to determine whether the television program mode is infringing to Chinese court, this paper will clarify a new method of “substantial similarity” and tort liability.
