As from next year the Azerbaijani Ministry of Culture & Tourism will strengthen its control over unlicensed movie films in the Country, Trend reports.

This step is directed at legalizing films and combating piracy. The most important path for Azerbaijan to take in entering the film world is to ensure that movie films and the production of different creative organizations are registered.

The Ministry is eager to expand its co-operation with the television companies and cinemas in the country, and will prohibit the viewing of any films which are not legally licensed or not on the State Registration list.
