Digital piracy workshop ends in Phnom Penh

A workshop to combat counterfeiting and digital piracy ended last week, after being attended by around 50 law enforcement investigators and public prosecutors from 11 countries. The three-day advanced workshop, hosted in Phnom Penh, closed Friday after police, intellectual property crime investigators and prosecutors shared ideas on fighting against all forms of intellectual property theft, and how to engage in grass roots education of its illicit nature. Dith Tina, under-secretary of state at the commerce ministry, said in closing the workshop that Cambodia’s government has seriously considered the issue of counterfeiting and piracy. “We are now in the process of creating an efficient enforcement body under the national committee for intellectual property rights to fight against illicit activities,” he said. “Also the sub-committee for intellectual property rights education is being created to raise public awareness to educate people about the damage caused by these issues.”
