Rome, November 26 - Prosecutors say as many as 205
people could be prosecuted on charges including fraud, money
laundering and forgery in connection with copyright abuses
against Italian performing artists.
The charges stem from protection of artists' works through
the Institute for the Mutual Protection of Performing Artists
and Performers (IMAIE).
The institute was established in 1977 to protect the work
of performing artists and musicians from illegal copying, and
ensure compensation when their work is re-used.
Prosecutor Luca Tescaroli suggested that most of the
defendants in the case were falsely listed as artists between
2007 and 2008.
They could be charged with money laundering related to
840,000 euros in banking transactions.
