Mechanisms On Application Of The Law On Mandatory Marking Of Electronic Carriers Adopted In Armenia

YEREVAN, May 20. /ARKA/. On Friday, Government of Armenia adopted a number of decisions which envisage mechanisms for application of law “ On mandatory marking of magnetic audio and video carriers by hologram” designed to strengthen copyrights protection.

The law was adopted on October 26, 2010 but due to the lack of implementation mechanisms it became effective on March 1.

Armenian Minister of Finance Vache Gabrielyan said that the law mainly defines the maximum size of import of electronic carriers for personal purposes, the number of which should not exceed 10 pieces, as well as elimination of electronic carriers which do not have marking or the marking was obtained unofficially.

Authorized body of control over the implementation of the law is the Armenian State Revenue Committee.

For violation of the requirements of mandatory marking criminal responsibility is applied. For the first violation a penalty in the amount of 1 million drams (about 2.7 thousand dollars) and for the second violation – imprisonment of up to one year is applied. –0--
