Tuesday, 01 August 2006

KUALA LUMPUR: It just got even easier for local content developers and telecommunications companies to utilise music in their services. 

The Recording Industry of Malaysia (RIM) and Malaysian Music Publishers Bhd (MMP) have agreed to a standard copyright fee of 8% of any royalties gained from the digital use of a song or a piece of music. 

Also, a content developer or telco now only needs to approach RIM for permission to use the music instead of going to the particular label, which can be time-consuming if there are several songs involved.

Owners cannot claim ignorance by saying that they are renting out their premises, said Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal. 

They must be held responsible for their premises and, hopefully, this will teach them to be more careful about who they rent the premises to.
