Ecuador's ex officio anti-piracy enforcement hits constitutional snag
The IEPI has so far initiated actions ex officio under the Intellectual Property Act against 26 stores which sold unlicensed CDs and DVDs, inflicting fines of approximately $1.8 million on each occasion. If such fines are not paid, criminal action will be taken. In response to these actions the Ecuadorian Association of Audiovisual Product Traders has filed a constitutional claim against the IEPI under Article 325 of the Constitution.
