80,000 Books Seized In Raid On Ugandan Bookshops

Posted at 8:23AM Tuesday 01 Jul 2014

More than 80,000 books worth Shs1.8b have been seized from bookshops and printers in an operation to crackdown on the sale of unauthorised publications.

The joint operation by publishers and the Uganda Registrations Services Bureau that started in October last year, saw the seizure of books from sales points, publisher premises and homes, in a move to enforce copyright. Mr Charles Batambuze, the executive director of Uganda Reproduction Rights Organisation, said the move seeks to save authors and publishers from incurring losses due to piracy.
