Bangladesh government told to stop piracy

High Court orders government action
One of the poorest countries in the world has been ordered by its courts to start enforcing audio and video piracy. The Bangladesh High Court has told the government that illegal piracy of every kind of audio and video must be stamped out in the country.

The HC bench of Justice AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik and Justice Sheikh Md Zakir Hossain directed the government to stop the piracy immediately through enforcing the copyright act properly, and to confiscate all the pirated copies of CDs and DVDs from markets.

The two Judges have  ordered the government to submit a report on steps taken to stop piracy in every three months to this court. President of Bangladesh Film Production and Distribution Association Gazi Mazharul Anwar and Secretary of Bangladesh Music Industries Owners Association Sheikh Shahed Ali jointly filed the writ petition in May.

We are sure that the government which seems to be starting to get on top of its problems with poverty, toxic surface water and low literacy rates, famine and floods would just love to channel its limited resources in hunting for copy right thieves.
