Thursday, 17 December 2009 09:21

Officials from a host of governments which are members of the APEC and ASEAN groups met in December 2009 to take an in-depth look at the problem of signal piracy.    The “Seminar on Signal Piracy, Regulation and Enforcement in a Converged World” heard speakers from governments and industry.    Spokesmen from some governments (Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, USA) discussed legal approaches that had seen some success, while industry reps from markets around the Pacific Rim described the myriad ways that broadcast signals can be stolen and re-sold in an increasingly wired (and wireless) world.    The seminar was supported by the US Patent and Trademark Office, with major input from CASBAA and our member companies.
