26 insurance cos ignoring copyright

The insurance policy and marketing of those products have been pirated allegedly with the help of the government officials. The group members manipulating the Copyright Act have been depriving the innovator and grabbing insurance related financial benefits of his products forthe last 20 years.
Mohammad Hasanul Alam, Editor cum journalist of The Suohardo, a weekly publishing from Comilla innovated Dowry insurance, marriage insurance, manpower export insurance in 1998 and submitted to different insurance companies for marketing his products as per the law of the land.
All the 26 insurance companies have been marketing the products innovated by him in different names without offering royalties as per the law of the land for the last twenty years.The Copyright Office under the Ministry of Cultural Affairs conducted at least two public hearings on the matter in last two years to settle down the issue.
The companies where he had submitted his products are the Padma Life Insurance Company, the Meghna Life Insurance Company, the BAIRA Life Insurance Company, the Rupali Life Insurance Company, the Sandhani Life Insurance Company, the Prime Islami Life Insurance Company, the Protective Islami Life Insurance Company, the Best Islami Life Insurance Company, the Homeland Life Insurance Company, the Sunflower life Insurance Company, the Sun Life Insurance Company, the Progati Life Insurance Company, the Alpha Islami Life Insurance Company, the Chatered Life Insurance Company,the Daimond Life Insurance Company, the Fareast Islami Life Insurance Company, the Sonali Life Insurance Company, the Jenith Islami Life Insurance Company, the National Life Insurance Company,the Popular Life Insurance Company, the Trust Islami Life Insurance Company, the Swadesh Life Insurance Company, the Golden Life Insurance Company and the Al Arafah Islami Life Insurance Company.
The Managing Directors of only four companies – the Padma Life Insurance Company, the Meghna Life Insurance Company,the Sandhani Life Insurance Company and the Rupali Life Insurance Company attended the public hearings on the issue.
Getting no remedies, Mohammad Hasanul Alam lodged a complain with the  Secretary to the Banking and Finance Division of the Finance Ministry, Chairman of the Insurance Development and Control Authorities and the Chairman of the Anti-Corruption Commission but in vain.
The insurance companies also allegedly with direct help of actuary experts have been involved in the piracy, Mohammad Hasanul Alam alleged.
An Additional Secretary to the Banking and Finance Division of the Ministry of Finance requesting anonymity told The Asian Age that actions are being taken against those involved in the piracy of the insurance products.
Mohammad Hasanul Alam called upon the government to take stern actions against the persons involved in the piracy of some products of life insurance for establishing fairplay and justice in the society.
