Philippines’ Anti-Camcording Law serves as Effective Deterrent

The Philippines’ film industry and cinema executives are optimistic that the Anti-Camcording Law of 2010 is a positive deterrent against piracy and intellectual property rights violation, with a 95% decrease in incidents of camcording in only two years of law enforcement. Reports indicate that in 2011, only one illegal camcording of a movie produced by Hollywood studios was forensically matched to the Philippines, compared to 20 in 2010 and 22 in 2009.

“This dramatic decrease in illegal camcording is a result of the effective and collaborative implementation and enforcement of the Anti-Camcording Law,” said Director General Ric Blancaflor of the Intellectual Property Office. “Under the efforts of the Department of Justice, the National Bureau for Investigation, the Philippine National Police, the Intellectual Property Office and the Optical Media Board. We are now able to expeditiously process interdictions and appropriate sanctions for apprehended offenders; thereby sending a strong message that illegal camcording is not tolerated and is a crime punishable with a severe fine and lengthy imprisonment.”
