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.

Rays_of_a_setting_sun_poster

Jointly with C & E Publishing, Inc., the family of the late Col. Eliseo Rio, author of Rays of a Setting Sun: Recollections of World War II, held the launching of the book’s new edition last April 5 at the Dimalupig Hall of the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ Officers Club at Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City.

First published in 1999 by the De La Salle University Press, the book is Col. Rio’s eyewitness account of the events that occurred during World War II, particularly the reverberations of the bombing of Camp John Hay in Baguio City on December 8, 1941; the heroic stand of the Filipino and American combatants on Bataan; the guerrilla campaign in the Visayas; and the surrender of the Japanese military contingent on Panay in 1945. With foreword by Rodolfo Biazon, former AFP chief of staff and senator, the book narrates as well the pivotal role of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) officers in organized and native resistance against the Japanese occupation.

The new edition includes U.S. Army Col. Kearie L. Berry’s handwritten notes on the “Battle of the Pockets” where Filipino and American soldiers defeated more than a thousand Japanese soldiers leading to the forced retreat of the enemy forces. Berry was the commander of the 3rd Infantry Regiment, 1st Regular Division of the Philippine Army until the first week of February 1942 when he took over the command of the 1st Regular Division from Gen. Fidel V. Segundo who was designated as the commanding general of another unit.

Rio was one of the cadets of PMA Class of 1942 who were commissioned ahead of schedule to the 1st Regular Division of the Philippine Army together with the Class of 1943 when the war broke out. He fought bravely in Bataan and escaped fortuitously when it fell into enemy hands; became a guerrilla leader in Panay; and served 21 years in the military. He died in June 2004.

Special guests provided impressions of the author and insights into the book. They were Dr. Benito Legarda, Jr., economist and historian; Dr. Maria Serena Diokno, chairman of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines; Ret. Lt. Gen. Ernesto Carolina, administrator of the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office; Dr. Roberto de Ocampo, chairman and chief executive officer of the Philippine Veterans Bank; Ret. Col. Vicente Alhambra of the PMA Class of 1942; and Alejandro Padilla, senior editor and management consultant for higher education of C & E Publishing, Inc. and former editor-in-chief of De La Salle University Press. Ma. Estela Pedrosa, Ret. Gen. Eliseo Rio, Jr., and Ma. Elisela Vitriolo, three of Rio’s seven children, also delivered messages during the gathering. Ret. PN Capt. Ephraim Rio served as master of ceremonies.

Copies of the book are now available at all C & E Bookshop branches nationwide. For orders or inquiries, call telephone no. (632) 929 5088 or e-mail C & E at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
