Codes of Conduct set to level the playing field in the karaoke and jukebox industries

With the threat of piracy in the karaoke and jukebox industry reaching new heights, Music Industry Piracy Investigations (MIPI), with support from the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) and the Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners’ Society (AMCOS), today launched the Karaoke and Jukebox Codes of Conduct (Codes). The Codes seek to level the playing field in the karaoke and jukebox industries by ensuring that every point of the music supply chain – from music content providers to individual karaoke and jukebox operators – is kept free of rogue operators. The Codes will apply to all companies, businesses and individuals operating within the karaoke and jukebox industries, demonstrating new levels of cooperation between players in the music industry in an effort to tackle the piracy problem.
