Music piracy and digital rights management in Mexico: shifting to a sound model


  • Anaid Chacon


Much has been written about piracy and the measures that industrialised countries have implemented to eliminate illegal music distribution and copyright infringement. Nevertheless, similar measures have been applied in second and third world countries with a different level of success. Mexico specifically, is appointed as a haven for piracy and a sink hole for intellectual property that is beyond repair, and which accounts for millions of dollars of loss to the copyright owners every year. Based on that premise, this document intends to analyse the effectiveness of the existing copyright enforcement measures and the music industry business model under the light of the socioeconomic and cultural panorama of this Latin American nation to determine, from a systemic perspective, where the leverage points for a so needed turn of events can be found.
