Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - May 19, 2002

Record labels of the World - Unite! Because Russia's capacity for producing CDs - including music, film and business and leisure software - now totals an estimated 200 million discs, "four times the country's legitimate demand."

Who says so?

The IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), which also says according to a global piracy survey it will shortly release, "Russia's music pirate market is worth US$240 million and is second in size only to China."

The evident solution?

Says the IFPI, Russian record labels and the "international music industry" will support a new organisation that will, "develop the legitimate music market and fight the country's rampant levels of copyright piracy."

The organization is called the National Federation of Phonogram Producers (NFPP) and it, "represents 70% of the music industry in Russia and unites the major Russian and international record companies for the first time," say the NFPP and IFPI.

And guess who's behind the NFPP?

The IFPI, whose European board members held the first joint meeting with NFPP members on May 14 after which it was announced that the chief priorities of NFPP are: developing the Russian music market and the industry's infrastructure; fighting piracy alongside other music rights holders; and lobbying the Russian Government for effective copyright legislation and professional anti-piracy enforcement - including "measures to control pirate production by Russia's rapidly-growing CD manufacturing industry."

NFPP and IFPI will also work on, "anti-piracy information campaigns aimed at the Government and the public."
