Many cable companies steal satellite signals, top official warns
Santo Domingo.- National Copyright Office (Onda) director Marino Feliz Terrero on Thursday revealed a high number of copyright violations, related to satellite signals for programs across the country.
He said Onda works in all provinces to halt the practice, where a high number of TV cable service providers operate illegally and cannot obtain contracts or permits as legal suppliers, called signal source producer entities.
The official called on the Dominican Telecomm Institute (INDOTEL) to define the legal status of those companies, since Dominican Republic assumed major commitments by signing the U.S.-Central America-Dominican Republic (CAFTA-DR) free trade agreement.
