Copyright Trading Floor Opens in Southern Hub

VND6 million paid for a photo entitled “Huyen Ao Sa Pa” (Fanciful Sapa) was transferred to a fund for students at the Nguyen Dinh Chieu School for the Blind.

The first trading session of the Viet Nam Copyright Trading Floor, the first of its kind in Viet Nam, opened yesterday in Ho Chi Minh City to mark World Day for Intellectual Property (April 26).

Organized by the Vietbooks Corporation and the Literary and Arts Copyright Office, sessions will be held once a month at Café Yesterday (50, Nguyen Thong St., Dist. 3).

Among the works up for grabs yesterday were the scripts for Episode 2 of the drama series "Chay an" (Buying Justice) by writer Nguyen Nhu Phong and "Phien Cho So" (Digital Market Day) by Nguyen Thu Phuong.

Many of the copyrights sold at high prices. For example, the pattern for an embroidered silk picture displaying the signatures of 100 Vietnamese record-holders fetched VND60 million, while ten sets of calendar designs by the HCMC University of Fine Arts sold for VND60 million.

Remarkably, VND34 million paid by art collector Nguyen Vu Phuoc for two paintings by the late Pham Van Tam was given to Tam’s wife to cover the cost of an impending heart operation. Similarly, VND6 million paid for a photo entitled "Huyen Ao Sa Pa" (Fanciful Sapa) was transferred to a fund for students at the Nguyen Dinh Chieu School for the Blind.

The Trading Floor was established to enable the transmission of copyright ownership and management from a wide range of categories including information technology, publications, translations, book distribution, paintings, sculpture, handicrafts, photos, musical works, stage works, movies, collections and others.
