LAST DEBATE IN COLOMBIA REGARDING BILL TO PROMOTE THE CREATIVE INDUSTRIES BASED ON INTELECTUAL PROPERTY “ORANGE LAW”

The bill also known as Orange Law is under the last debate.  The purpose of this law is to promote and encourage creative industries in the country, as well as the strengthening of public, private and mixed institutions oriented to the promotion and dissemination of cultural and creative activities developing an economy around the creative industries.

 

The proposed bill has no background in the Colombian legal framework.  This rule seeks to encourage creative industries, which are defined as those that generate value because of their goods and services derived from intellectual property matters.

In that sense, the creative industries will include, but are not limited to, publishing and audio-visual sectors, phonographic, and visual arts, performing arts and entertainment sectors, tourism and intangible cultural heritage, artistic and cultural education, advertising, multimedia content, content software and interactive audiovisual services, fashion, news agencies and information services, and creative education.
