Music Piracy

By c_ingliang ·
Nowadays, music piracy is a common issue. However, only leading countries like America and UK have the sufficient laws to curb the menace of music piracy. In order for Malaysia to attract more foreign artist, what should Malaysia do in terms to the existing laws and what other steps need to be taken?

The issue with music piracy is not much different than software piracy. Both have far reaching implications for society at large.

On one hand the copyright holder has the right to be paid for his work. But what does this entail? Does he get paid for each time a person consumes his work? Does he get paid one time by each consumer? Or does he derive revenues indirectly? By shifting to an indirect revenue source, the copyright holder will derive lower revenues but have a more satisfied audience.

On the other hand, people at large desire the flexibility from the intellectual materials to be copied to various mediums of thier choice. This means changes in licensing and use of the product. But opens the door to mass distribution of the copyright holders work.

I am for indirect incomes and a change in the music industry as well as the software industry.
