MAKATI CITY, Philippines–The thriving business process outsourcing (BPO) industry is the latest target of the Pilipinas Anti-Piracy Team (PAPT).
The PAPT is composed of elements from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Philippine National Police (PNP), the Optical Media Board (OMB) and several other organizations related to intellectual property rights (IPR) and copyright protection.
The expanded campaign uses the tagline “Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late” to warn companies and individuals of the perils of copyright infringement.
In a press conference, OMB chairman Edu Manzano said computer and software sales increased as BPOs expand their business. However, Manzano said the group will keep a watchful eye on BPO firms to make sure they adhere to IPR laws.
