In Brief: Govt targets copyright

THE government met Thursday with 65 domestic companies for the start of a two-day workshop aimed at boosting the Kingdom's copyright compliance, which officials admitted still had a long way to go. A Ministry of Commerce report showed that 11 brand names were unregistered in the first nine months of this year because of copyright violations. "We hope ... to be able to work with investors and local producers until the full implementation of copyright laws," said Dith Tina, undersecretary of state at the Ministry of Commerce. The Kingdom first introduced copyright laws in 2002.
