Members of a range of industries in Mexico announced the formation of a common front to fight piracy and contraband through the creation of the Institute for the Protection of Intellectual Property and Legitimate Commerce (IPIIC).

The Motion Picture Association, along with the Mexican Association of Phonograpm Producers (AMPROFON), the Business Software Aliance (BSA), the National Chamber of the Garment Industry (CNIV), and the National Producers of Phonograms (PRONAFON) decided to embark on this initiative in order to generate a platform of joint activities to limit the accelerated growth of illegal commerce in Mexico.

The Motion Picture Association maintains one of its most active anti-piracy programs in Mexico, which is one of the top ten audiovisual markets in the world and the largest in Latin America.

"The creation of this instutute marks a new chapter in the fight against piracy in this country," said Francisco Guerra, executive director of the Anti-Piracy Office of the MPA in Mexico. "Through the IPIIC, we will pool our ideas and our resources to find creative ways to limit the growth of piracy, which affects not only the creative industries, but also society as a whole, by limiting legimitate job growth and tax revenues needed to provide essential public services."

The business organizations making up the new entity are among those most affected by piracy and contraband in Mexico, with falsified or illegaly copied products comprising between 50% and 80% of market sales.

The IPIIC will be a multidisplinary and multisectorial organization that will study the phenomenon of piracy, formulate concrete and direct approaches for combatting it, and promote a culture of respect for the law.

The IPICC will, among its many activities, serve as a point of reference for understanding the concepts of copyright, industrial property, and the regulation of commerce, in addition to developing educational projects and social communications strategies that will promote respect for intellectual property and the creative industries.

The IPIIC will also seek to provide greater economic opportunities through such measures as the reconversion of the illegal market, and to create conceptual linkages between a strengthened Mexican cultural identity and respect for intellectual property.

The IPIIC will be a non-profit organization, with the following structure: President: Fernando Hernández Romero, general director of AMPROFON; Four Vice-Presidents: Tony Kury, presidente of CNVI; Kiyoshi Tsuru, general director of BSA Mexico; Francisco Guerra, executive director of the MPA, and Peter Honerlage, president of PRONAFON. The general director of IPIIC will be Fidel López García, legal coordinator of the CNVI.

The IPIIC will also have an aAdvisory comittee to be coordinated by Roberto Castañeda of the Alliance Against Piracy.
