The Communications and Digital Ministry takes note of copyright protection of journalistic works - Fahmi
IPOH - The Communications and Digital Ministry will pay attention to the issue of copyright protection of media practitioners’ works, in addition to the welfare of the group, said its minister Fahmi Fadzil.
He said in the era of rapid technological progress, many works produced by media practitioners, including photos, articles and content on social media, were used arbitrarily without permission.
"I received complaints that journalists’ hard work had been misused and some photos had watermarks removed. So, there is a need to discuss with social media platform providers to curb this issue,” he said at the Perak Association of Media Practitioners (PPMP) open house here today.
Also present were Deputy Communications and Digital Minister Teo Nie Ching and PPMP president Sayed Hesham Syed Idris. - BERNAMA
