Call to suspend the Copyright Act Amendment Bill and the Performer's Protection Amendment Bill
Dear Mr Hlupheka Mtileni,
RE: The Select Committee on Trade and International Relations on the Copyright Amendment Bill [B13B-2017]
While I applaud an update of the South African law to bring it in line with international best practice to support the creative industries and protect artists and performers, I suspect the bill as it stands will have a number of unintended consequences that will effectively reduce foreign investment.
This could be disastrous for the creative economy and significantly reduce employment opportunities for the very artists the bill aims to protect.
