Congress approves IP project
The Senate recently approved by a large majority a project which “urges respect for national laws and international treaties signed and ratified by the Republic of Paraguay concerning intellectual property.” This project is known as “Resolution No. 91” (Declaración N° 91).
The bill was introduced by Senator Miguel A. Saguier, who argues that authors, performers and producers, as well as collective management organizations, are losing rights “by people who pretend to ignore the rights given by the laws and their scope.”
Article No. 2 of the bill stipulates the “support for authors and Cultural Workers and especially the musical field, so that they can continue creating, playing freely, for the enjoyment of Paraguayans as well, with the right to a fair remuneration.”
