Book and publication policy demanded

KATHMANDU: Stakeholders have urged the government to bring the Book and Publication Policy at the earliest for protecting the rights and interests of writers and litterateurs.

Speaking in a programme marking the World Book and Copyright Day organised by Nepal Academy on Monday, Registrar at Nepal Copyrights Registrar’s Office, Bisu Kumar K.C. stressed the need of prioritizing the copyrights under the economic, social and cultural development policy of the state.

President of Nepal Copyrights Protection Society, Kali Prasad Rijal, said although there has been rapid development in media and education, the specialty and the style of artistic and literary creations have not been publicized to the desired extent, pointing out the need for formulating a book and publications policy at the initiatives of the private sector.

Member Secretary of the Nepal Academy Sanat Regmi underlined protection of the intellectual property for country’s prosperity and said the required policy should be brought for that purpose.

Academy member, Prof. Mahadeo Awasthi stressed on collaboration among artists and writers, the organised sales organizations in the private sector and the government bodies for making the creative sector dignified and disciplined.

President of Nepal National Association of Book Sellers and Publishers, Ram Chandra Timothy called on the government to bring a book and publication policy while advocate Parshuram Koirala stressed that the country’s intelligentsia should work for checking theft of intellectual property and piracy.
