Publishing industry warns of copyright bill's R2.1bn impact (ZA)

The Copyright Amendment Bill to be debated in the National Assembly today has been met with mixed reactions.

The Publishing Association of SA (Pasa) said last year they commissioned PricewaterhouseCoopers to do an impact assessment, which projected that the industry would lose about R2.1 billion a year.

“We support amending the outdated aspects of the current Copyright Act (1978)," said Dr Nicol Faasen, Pasa’s legal affairs chair.

However, he cautioned that the bill itself was “deeply flawed” and not based on clear policy fundamentals.
