Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - May 23, 2002

Counterfeiting and piracy of copyrighted works is feeding a growing black economy used by criminal networks to fund drug dealing, arms trading, money laundering and terrorism, members of Europe's entertainment industry heard at a two-day piracy seminar in Madrid.

"Just last week, our anti-piracy programme in the UK, working with local enforcement authorities, raided a major pirate DVD-R factory that was making copies of 'Spider Man' and 'Star Wars: Episode II' that had been downloaded from the Internet," declared Dara MacGreevy, Vice President of the Motion Picture Association, based in Belgium.

"Over 10,000 discs and 31 DVD burners were seized in the raid."

Urging the European Union to take "bold measures" in its slated EU Enforcement Directive and to "rapidly implement" new legislation to combat escalating piracy in Europe, representatives of film, video, music, business and interactive leisure software companies jointly called for the Directive to include:

1. Genuinely deterrent penalties and damages so pirates can no longer write off damages as a small operational cost;

2. Reasonable presumption of copyright ownership to avoid delays in court proceedings that in some cases allow pirates to escape justice;

3. Seize and preserve evidence of piracy to make available effective provisional measures allowing seizure and preservation of evidence before criminals can destroy it;

4. Right of information about manufacture and distribution so original manufacturer or distributor of the infringing goods can be identified; and,

5. Compulsory Source identification codes (SID) so the source of manufacture of pirated discs made in Europe every year can be tracked down.
