Copyright trading floor launched


Nhan Dan reports that the first copyright trading floor opened in Ho Chi Minh City yesterday. The idea is that it will operate once a month to bring authors and businesses together. It is a collaboration between the Vietnam Book and Directory (Vietbooks), the Vietnam Copyrights Service Company (Vietcopyrights) and the Copyright Department under the Ministry of Culture and Information.

The IPKat reckons that this is an intriguing idea. Although is smacks of major commoditisation, it could seriously benefit creative people by enabling them to bring their work before multiple potential investors, as long as they can access the trading floor.
