DEM is planning to launch a new player named “Muziplay” which will be compatible with all MP3 players.

Both sites are servicing not only a-la card downloads but also mass campaigns with well known brands like Pepsi and Coca cola.

The First Long Term Punishment

The owner of UCAR CD Plant which was producing pirate materials is sentenced to 5 years 7 months, 15 days imprisonment. The court has also sentenced an amount of 160.447 YTL because of hiding the evidences.

There were independent raids by MUYAP and AMPEC about the plant and CD samples were sent to IFPI for Forensic Department to criminal examination. The comparison of the pirate CDs with the samples taken during the plant visits showed that they were produced by UCAR. During the search, in the plant with the participation of more than 15 policemen, 8650 VCD produced illegally, 4700 pirate DVDs and 10 silkscreens were seized. The certification of this plant has been also cancelled by MOCT.

The verdict of the local court is subject to the approval of the Supreme Court. Thus the case is not still finalised.

Minister Of Justice Cemil Çiçek : “Our Political Will Is To Prevent All The Piracy Activities

The “Anti Piracy Platform” met again with the Government on 20th December. Minister of Justice, Internal Affairs, Finance, Culture & Tourism were participants at the meeting.

The minister of Internal Affairs took analytical approach to piracy. He focused on 3 main problems in fighting piracy. Firstly he addressed the problems in the enforcement of regulations and said that they would be solved immediately. The Minister also mentioned that the second problem; new regulations on piracy enforcement would be solved in the short run. The change of legislation of the renewed 5846 Law (Intellectual Properties Law) would be considered in the medium run. Furthermore he said that these amendments should be parallel with Turkish Criminal Code.

The minister of education emphasized that there is a no difference between piracy and theft. He proposed to organise big concerts for students and distribution of posters in schools to emphasize fighting piracy and illegal music.

The ministers of Finance, Justice were also sensitive to the piracy problem in Turkey. All the ministers declared openly that their political will is to prevent all the piracy activities. It was surprising that the Ministry of Culture and Tourism has declared that he had nothing to say on the issue.

The conclusion of the meeting was to form a working committee which include representative from ministries and societies. This committee will prepare the proposals for short, long and medium terms and submit than to the Ministers for immediate action.

Music, movies and software industries have joined forces against piracy

MÜ-YAP has been defending for a long time that the sectors which were harmed by piracy should coordinate and unite enforcement activities. The first result of the efforts for this was the united enforcement activities of MÜ-YAP and AMPEC, sister company of MPA in Turkey. After the agreement between IFPI and MPA to coordinate the anti-piracy activities worldwide, these two organizations signed a protocol and started common raids on 1 April 2005.

At the beginning of June 2005 a media campaign has been started with the participation of BSA, Business Software Alliance. The basic message of the campaign is to explain public that piracy is not different than theft.

Mr. Oskay, the President of MÜ-YAP says that the togetherness of the three groups will create a synergy which will in turn result with more powerfull enforcement activities.
