Copyright protection laws vary from country to country; however, the common purpose of these anti-copyright theft laws is to protect valuable ideas and content-creating industries.
That effort benefits all people in creative industries - such as filmmaking business - globally.
MFACT investigators work closely with law enforcement authorities to ensure that copyright is protected in Malaysia. MFACT also works with the Motion Picture Association and other industry anti-piracy associations - for example, in the music, computer software and computer games industries - in the effort to stamp out copyright theft.
Government agencies, acting on information from MFACT, and
members of the public, are continually identifying
and raiding illegal distributors and manufacturing
labs across Malaysia.
Cinema employees also are becoming increasingly vigilant in looking out for people copying films in cinemas with camcorders. These offenders risk significant penalties, including equipment seizures and the laying of criminal charges by the police.
The Malaysia government has recently identified intellectual property theft as a serious crime, with additional resources expected to be allocated to cracking down on copyright thieves.
