New C & E awareness campaign to focus on the impact of book piracy

If you are a student, a professional, or a book enthusiast, chances are you have acquired a pirated book at least once in your life. You might have bought a bootleg edition or downloaded an unauthorized copy of a book in PDF or other formats. Not guilty? What about photocopying an entire book or even a few pages of a reading material?

Under Republic Act 8293, otherwise known as the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines, the unauthorized reproduction or photocopying of any copyrighted book or other works, in whole or in part, is a serious criminal offense which carries a maximum penalty of nine years imprisonment and a fine of one million pesos.

A number of Filipinos, however, resort to buying pirated versions of expensive or hard-to-find textbooks and reference materials. In fact, many of them are not aware that book piracy (the illegal reproduction, distribution, and sale of books) is an unscrupulous business.

Hence, to intensify its efforts to combat book piracy in the Philippines, C & E Publishing, Inc. will launch a new campaign before 2015 ends. With the tagline, "Book Piracy Kills," the advocacy aims not just to create a mindset that book piracy is a crime but also to raise awareness on its impact on the publishing industry.

Compared with the previous tagline, "Book Piracy is a Crime," the new slogan hopes to make people understand how book piracy affects authors, editors, artists, and other people whose livelihood depends on the local publishing industry. C & E is likewise optimistic that the reading public will support the drive, and in the process, encourage homegrown local authors to write and publish their works and foreign publishers to make their textbooks and reference materials readily available locally.

C & E Publishing, Inc. conducted the second leg of the senior high school (SHS) teachers’ seminar titled “Education Revolution: Say Hi to Senior High” last January 25 at the C & E Information and Resource Center in Quezon City. More than 80 faculty members and school administrators from 34 private schools in Pampanga, Laguna, Quezon, Camarines Sur, and the National Capital Region attended the activity.

The seminar, which aims to address the concerns of educators regarding the implementation of the SHS program in 2016, was first conducted on November 27, 2015. Its success prompted C & E to turn it into a seminar series to reach out to more private schools nationwide.

For the second time, Dr. Dalisay Brawner and Dr. Isagani Cruz served as resource speakers.

Brawner, the vice president for academic affairs of the University of Makati (UMak), delivered her lecture titled “The SHS Pilot Program: Sharing the University of Makati’s Experience,” which reviewed and assessed the pilot-testing of the SHS program at UMak from school year 2012–2013 to school year 2015–2016.

Cruz, a former Department of Education undersecretary, tackled various teaching methodologies and learning materials for the SHS program in his lecture titled “The Learner, the Textbook, and the Teacher.”

Workshops for selected core subjects were held after the lectures. Dr. Cruz, and UMak professors Maria Carmela Sison and Clarence Ella Alipio facilitated the workshops for mathematics, science, and English, respectively.

Aside from lectures and workshops, KITE Academy, C & E’s own end-to-end learning solution brand that comprises tools for interactive lesson creation and distribution with classroom monitoring functionalities, was highlighted. Also exhibited were evaluation copies of adaptations of science, math, and English textbooks by international partner-publisher Cengage Learning.

In his welcome message, Rene Mupas, C & E assistant vice president for higher education and CE-Logic, said that teachers, students, parents, and publishers must unite to resolve the problems brought about by curricular changes in basic education.

The next leg of the seminar series will be held in Cebu and Davao in February.
