Singers & Music Artistes Demand Implementation of Goonda Act To Check Music Piracy

Punjabi pop is popular not only in whole of India ( including Non- Punjabi regions of India ) but in the entire world. But most of the revenue does not go to genuine copy right holders but to music pirates.

To check this leakage, singers and representatives of music companies met the Akali Dal nominee for M.P. seat of Jalandhar, Hans Raj Hans. Hans is the iconic figure of Punjabi music.

It is demanded that the "Goonda' Act, under which music piracy would become a non bailable offence be implemented in Punjab and Maharashtra. This act is, already, in force in Tamil Nadu from 10-10-2004 with salutary results.
