Experts blame high licensing fees for piracy in Vietnam

Speaking at a conference held in Hanoi on Wednesday, Lee Dogoo, head of business at South Korean firm SBS Contents Hub, said while infringements occur in all countries, they are rife in Vietnam because of high licensing fees.

As these fees continue to go up, the pirate broadcast market also continues to grow, he said.

Vu Thi Huong Lan, head of the Hanoi Law University's international law faculty, voiced agreement saying high fees charged by copyright holders are deterring viewers from watching licit content.

Referring to the recent Asian Games (Asiad), she said the owner of the event's broadcasting rights had demanded such a huge price for broadcasting rights in Vietnam that no Vietnamese broadcaster was able to afford it.
