: Saturday, July 05 - 2014 @ 04:20

Jordan’s National Library Department (NLD) is set to crack down on satellite channels that broadcast dramas and programmes without obtaining the required approval from copyright holders, Jordan Times has reported. A team from the department has already prepared a list of satellite channels broadcasting from the kingdom and will check on all of them to verify whether they are abiding by the Jordanian Copyright Law, NLD director general, Mohammad Abbadi, told the daily. “In Ramadan, the number of satellite channels broadcasting dramas and all kinds of programmes without the proper licence increases. This is a violation of copyrights and violators will be fined and referred to court,” he said.
