Jordan’s National Library Department (NLD) has said it has fined 28 coffee shops during Ramadan for buying family subscriptions instead of commercial subscriptions to show 2014 World Cup matches at their venues, Jordan Times has reported. “During Ramadan, we conducted campaigns on hundreds of coffee shops and those violating the law were fined and referred to court,” NLD director general, Mohammad Abbadi, told the daily. The NLD confiscated more than 200,000 pirated items, including software, video games, movies and music DVDs, since the beginning of this year, noted Abbadi.
