Labeling of Electronic Data Carriers Obligatory in Armenia
In an effort to improve copyright protection and strengthen the fight against piracy, as of October 18, 2012, all electronic data carriers manufactured in or imported into Armenia will need to be labeled.
This requirement will apply to magnetic, optical, digital, laser and other types of electronic media. To prepare for this new measure, the Armenian State Revenue Committee will have to acquire 2.3 million labels by September.
