FIA Drags Copyright Criminals to Court

Copyrights have always been an issue in Pakistan and were neglected by people. However, a recent step of Geo TV’s Fire Recordings might have changed some people’s minds (though not all).

Fire Recordings have filed a lawsuit against a website managed by three people named Najam Sahar, Zeeshan Alam & Yasir Hayat for sharing copyrighted music albums. Convicts have been presented in a local court in Karachi. Court is being adjourned till March 5th because of absence of FIA (Federal Investigation Agency) prosecutor.


Copyright BombFire Records Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Akbar Yazdani said “This is the first lawsuit of its kind in Pakistan against Music Piracy & more will follow soon”. He also adds “Copyright violators will not be spared and actions will be taken against them”.

Dr. Akbar Yazdani has also filed a Lawsuit against two other websites providing pirated content.

1)- Apniisp.com

2)- funmaza.com

A written application has been submitted to FIA against the above mentioned websites.

Finally piracy has been considered a Crime in Pakistan but still there is a lot to do. Almost every software is pirated here and no one even thinks about it (even though it benefits public but …)
