CMCF website revamp by May


BY M. HAFIDZ MAHPAR

COMMUNICATIONS and Multimedia Content Forum of Malaysia (CMCF) is revamping its website (cmcf.org.my) to incorporate an e-complaints bureau and an e-content advisory centre. 

Chairman Prof Tony Lee said the revamp was expected to be completed by May. 

“A revamp is necessary so as to increase traffic to the site and meet the needs of the layman and of the industry in a more efficient way,” he told StarBiz on Saturday. 

He said, currently, the website was more for giving information. 

Soon, however, consumers and content developers may also use it to file complaints and to get advice on content development and other content-related issues. 

On the long journey to get the Content Code officially registered, Lee said a draft that he called “version five” was currently with the Energy, Communications & Multimedia Ministry and a White Paper would be developed for Cabinet approval. 

Asked whether Cabinet nod was necessary, he said: “Due to the persuasive and pervasive nature of content, all the parties involved, including the ministry and Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission (MCMC), feel strongly that the code should have Cabinet approval.” 

At present, CMCF has 36 ordinary members and one associate member. Lee called on content creators to join and participate actively in the forum to help grow the local content industry.
