Student wins copyright protection contest with copied work

Thursday, September 23, 2010 03:05:42 PM, DPA

Taipei: Taiwan Thursday revoked the prize in the Protect Copyright Design Contest after discovering the winner copied the work of a Dutch designer to win the competition.

The Intellectual Property Office, the organiser of the contest, said it disqualified Wu Chih-wei and asked him to return the medal and cash award of 5,000 Taiwan dollars ($156).

"The contest's purpose is to make the public respect the intellectual property of other people," the office said. "If someone copies other people's work to join the contest, it runs counter to this purpose, and this person must bear the legal consequences."

Wu, a student from Douliou's National Yunlin University of Science and Technology, won the top prize in the student section of the November contest with a design showing a paper aeroplane plunging because its tail was broken.

The title of the entry was "Work - Shattered".

But a Taiwan woman, identified only by her family name of Lee, alerted the Intellectual Property Office Tuesday that Wu had copied the work of Dutch designer Dennis Sibeijn.

Sibeijn's image, entitled "Truth", is shown on his website.

Wu admitted copying the work, saying he did it because he needed the money, said Chiang Yu-hua of the Intellectual Property Office.

"When we contacted him, Wu realised he had committed a crime and said he was absolutely distraught and was very sorry," she said.

Picture of the Day

Due to the threats of riot and terror attacks, the festive season in India nowadays results in sleepless nights for the security personnel. Against this backdrop, the show of communal harmony in Malegaon by Ajantha Mandal cannot be more timely. The Mandal in a large hoarding portrays the real picture of the Muslim dominated textile town in North Maharashtra. It shows, Malegaon is where Azan in a Masjid and Shunkh in a Mandir go simultaneously. To further make its point, the Mandal plays communal harmony songs on a cassette-player in its full sound.
