Objectifs clefs de la mesure:

In 2003, the Law on Copyright and Related Right were promulgated in order to support and protect creativities. It also allows creators to legally protect their works and get compensatory remuneration for their work. The law and its implementation also encourage new creativities in Arts and Culture as well. To implement the laws, MCFA set up a Department of Copyright and Related Rights which is fully in function todate.

Principale caractéristique de la mesure:

The Law on Copyright and Related Rights ensures proper protection of copyright and related rights by raising respects of the society towards intellectual property and taking tough measures towards illegal uses. Proper implementation would lead to increase creativity and rightful dissemination of results of creative work, respect for intellectual property, and  enable more favourable conditions for the development and visibility of the Cambodian creative industries taking into account new digital technologies and their impacts on methods of creative expression and the dissemination, as well as social needs related to the development of the rightful digital accessibility of creations. Creators and producers would be significantly benefited from their creation and production.

Up-to-date, quite a remarkable number of producers and authors started to register their work with ministry’s Department of Copyrights and Related Rights.
