I READ with interest your report, “Buyers of pirated products may face the music”, (The Star, Feb 22).
It should come as a relief to the Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM) that the Government may amend the copyrights law to allow end users to be brought to justice for buying pirated music products.
On their part, the RIM should also ensure the prices of original CDs be brought down to a more affordable level.
Everyone knows the production cost of CDs is not commensurate with the way original CDs are priced locally.
If prices of original CDs are maintained, I am sorry to say piracy will continue to thrive and there is nothing the RIM can do to stop it.
