China would certainly not follow DMCA. However, a notice and takedown policy is followed by Europe (EU Electronic Commerce Directive) as well.
I have not seen a similar policy or procedure in place for China where Copyright Infringement is well known.
In the case of Youku, I do not intend to file a DMCA Take Down notice as it is not applicable.
Their way of complying with the laws is to ask you to fill a Microsoft Word Document (completely in Chinese) and mail them.
Like every other copyright infringement notice, Youku's Word Document requests for the same set of information as a DMCA too.
Different names of the Policies but similar ways of operating.
