The Criminal Code of the Republic Macedonia within its Chapter XV “Criminal acts against the rights and freedoms of human and citizen” encompasses four criminal acts which object of protection is the intellectual property, i.e. Violation of author’s right and related rights (Article 157), Violation of the rights of distributor of technically and specially protected satellite signal (Article 157-a), Piracy of audio-visual works (Article 157-b) and Piracy of phonograms (Article 157-c).
Therefore, by analysing the legal framework of these criminal acts, from the aspect of the criminal policy, their trend of movement shall be determined. On the other hand, with the help of scientific analysis and description of the statistical data disposable to the State Statistical Office, the detecting and proving activities of the Macedonian law enforcement organs shall be noted through the submitted criminal reports, initiated accusations and delivered judgments for sanctioning of the perpetrators of the criminal acts defined in Articles 157, 157-a, 157-b and 157-c. Also, a special attention shall be given to the type of the criminal sentences delivered to the convicted adult persons. And finally, having in mind the aspiration of the Republic of Macedonia to become an EU member, the European Commission’s progress reports shall be analysed from the aspect of the intellectual property, i.e. the efforts that Republic of Macedonia takes in order to comply with the Copenhagen criteria and the conditionality of the Stabilisation and Association Process.
