On 4 October 2007, Zambia played host to a seminar as part of the Anti-Piracy Training for Trainers programme, developed by UNESCO’s Global Alliance for cultural diversity with generous funding from the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation.
The seminar was organized in Lusaka, Zambia as a follow-up to the Southern African APTT session in Namibia in 2006. Discussions covered a range of topics related to the fight against piracy, including investigative skills to identify pirated material and the legal framework for copyright protection in Zambia. In a key feature of the APTT programme, several of those presenting had previously been trained in Namibia. The event was sponsored by UNESCO and the International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organisations (IFRRO) and coordinated by the Zambia Music Copyright Protection Society (ZAMCOPS).
