IMPHAL: The Tamenglong District Working Journalist’s Union (TADJWU) has appealed to the general public, particularly the smartphone users of Tamenglong and outside, to stop forwarding PDF format or photocopies of the newspapers published in Tamenglong including The Cham, The Gaanphiu Mail and The Tamenglong Times and uploading them to the public groups.
In a press note the union stated that the media people are working very hard to circulate their newspapers to the readers, especially through the means of hard copies printed.
The TADJWU further mentioned that the forwarding of newspaper copies to the public social media group has harmed the printing business enormously. Hence, it is requested of the persons who are indulging in such destructive activities to stop it once and for all. It also added that the only media houses have the rights to circulate the papers whether in PDF or other electronics format.
The union also pointed out uploading the PDF format of the newspapers or photocopying and forwarding the printed copy to the social media groups will invite appropriate legal action.
