The Government has launched a seal intended to stop pirating books.

This comes at a time when government is trying to enforce the intellectual property policy to allow innovators benefit from their work.

Addressing a news conference at Uganda Media center in Kampala on Tuesday, Uganda reproduction rights organization executive director, Charles Batambuze, said that the seal will stop Uganda from being the origin of piracy.

Batambuze said that they are working together with immigration to see these seals working especially on books that are exported.

He noted that many books are flooding the Ugandan market without clearance from the Ugandan national library.

The launch comes at a time when Uganda library is preparing to host the 23rd standing conference of Eastern, Central and Southern African library and Information Associations.

The national library boss, Gertrude Kayaga Mulindwa, said the conference will discuss issues to do with innovation that may be important for Ugandan librarians.
