“Restaurant owners urged to use legal commercial television services” – Presma

The Muslim Restaurant Operators Association of Malaysia (Presma) and the Indian Restaurant Operators Association of Malaysia (Primas) agreed to urge restaurant owners to use legal commercial television services for viewing at their respective premises.

While reiterating the decision of the Kuala Lumpur High Court on the matter, Presma President, Datuk Jawahar Ali Taib Khan said, any premise that shows copyrighted works of sports and entertainment content without the consent of the Premier League and the official broadcaster is in breach of copyright under Section 36 Copyright Act 1987.

He said the section stipulates that any commercial premises that show content to its customers using illegal streaming devices will be subject to legal action.

According to him, the commercial premises can be subject to legal action and they are responsible for paying damages to the content owners.

“We run a legitimate business and want to make sure that all the services under us are legitimate.

“As a Muslim business owner, it is very important to operate halal and follow religious recommendations. Stealing in any way is illegal.

“Therefore, customers are also asked to support restaurants that use pay television broadcasting services,” he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Govindasamy said the establishment of the association is timely as Malaysians are now served with various entertainment programs as well as the latest FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 which is underway to attract more customers.

“It is important to protect the rights of our members who use legal services. This is very important because we are now in the endemic phase and our members can operate without restrictions,” he said.

The public can report illegal broadcasting of sports and entertainment content on commercial premises to the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) via hotline 1-800-886-800, 03-8882 6088/6245, WhatsApp 019-279 4317 / 019 -848 8000, email [email protected] or through the ezAdu application.
