INDECOPI is happy to act ex officio - good results for a good cause

    No comments:

The INDECOPI’s Copyright Commission informs that between 2009 and 2011 has initiated 44investigations against cable companies across the country that appear to transmit television signals without authorization from the copyright owners. From the 44 investigation it is claimed that 24 investigations were initiated ex officio and the remaining were at the request of complainants. INDECOPI reveals that from this figure 39 cases have been solved applying fines.

Regarding the case of ‘Cable Orion Co’, as soon as INDECOPI’s Technical Secretariat of the Copyright Commission was aware, it initiated a preliminary investigation into the alleged infringement of cable television signal. The authority said that if the accusations are confirmed the process will begin and appropriate administrative sanctions will apply.
