Macedonian Broadcasting Council Publishes Operators’ Program Packages to Protect Copyrights

Aug 24 2010 - 10:36

In order to ensure more efficient protection of copyrights and neighboring rights, the Macedonian Broadcasting Council has recently published on its website program packages for which the public communication network operators in Macedonia have regulated the copyrights and which they are permitted to transmit.

The Council emphasized in its statement that the operators must not add or remove programs without prior consent from the Council. The Council reserves the right to remove programs from the packages due to the expiration of retransmission rights, cancellation of the retransmission agreement, and other legally justified reasons.

The Council noted that it would intensify the monitoring of the programs operators offer, with the help from the State Market Inspectorate, the Coordinating Body for Intellectual Property, the Culture Ministry, the Interior Ministry, and the Public Prosecution Office.

The operators’ program packages, in Macedonian, can be found here.
