ImagePETALING JAYA: The Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM) hopes to bring down the current piracy level by as much as 50% within the next three to five years. 

It said it intends to do this by taking civil action against licensed CD plants that are involved in music piracy. 

“We are saying three to five years because the court process may take that long,” said RIM chief executive officer Tan Ngiap Foo. 

RIM will take these CD plants to court to claim damages and get injunctions. “We are not just waiting for criminal action (to be taken by the Government),” said Tan.
