    The economic importance of copyright industries in developed market economies has been amply documented, and these are becoming all the more important with the rise of the knowledge-based economy. According to recent estimates, the core copyright industries in the United States contribute $260 billion dollars to the economy and already generate over $60 billion in foreign exchange earning (Daley, 1999; RIAA, 1999). Although such industries are less significant in developing countries, this is likely to change with the growing weight of the knowledge-based service sector in these countries and its importance for their closer integration into the global market economy.
