Hanoi (VNA) – The Copyright Office of Vietnam under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Copyright Commission held a forum in Hanoi on June 2.

The panels discussed copyright policies and legislation of the two nations according to their Vietnam-Korea Free Trade Agreement, specifically in television and music products.

They also shared information and experience in copyright management.

The Copyright Office of Vietnam and the RoK’s Copyright Commission signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation in copyright and relevant rights in 2012.

Under the document, the two sides agreed to increase the exchange of information and documents relating to law and technology copyright, while building a system to protect online copyright, digital communications, and taking measures to counter copyright violations on the internet.

The Vietnamese and Korean ministries of culture, sports and tourism inked a MoU on copyright protection cooperation in May 2014, which aims to promote the legal use of artistic works.

The RoK Copyright Centre opened a representative office in Vietnam in January 2014.-VNA
