 "Copyright Law is not efficient"
At the symposium, participants examined the current copyright and actors rights situations in Turkey and the world. The governor Ulvi Saran said “It is extremely important to realize the need of the amendments of copyright in Turkey, and I believe this meeting will contribute the progress of the changes.  He also added “The actors must have new rights as well.  The recent regulations are not sufficient to cover the right of the artist. We also need to place new regulations to prevent piracy.”

"Intellectual Property Law"
11th Supreme Court President  Mehmet Kilic  has noted the importance of intellectual property law. He said "Intellectual property law is one of the most important measures of the development of a country.  I am pleased to see a number of positive steps were taken to improve the Intellectual Property Law in recent years in Turkey.” “Irregularities and insecurity in Switzerland”Dr. RA. Annatina Menn from Switzerland stated that “Although we have the rules and regulations implemented in terms of the copyright and the industry workers protection in Switzerland, there are still ‘Irregularities’ and ‘Insecurity’ issues towards the recent law amongst artists.

"Austrian artists have limited social security"
Dr. RA. Harald Karl from Austria mentioned the limitations of the social security system in Austria. He said "To have a regular social security, one must prove their regular income in Austria.  Most of the artists do not have regular income therefore they suffer from the current regulations.

“EU regulations must be reviewed”
Dr. Tomas Dobrichovky from Czech Republic said ‘The copyright laws in our country was reviewed  and revised in December 2000 to improve the  rights of protection of intellectual works according to European Union regulations.” “However these changes are not sufficient either” he added.
