In an interview for The Herald, Dr Samuel Makore, president of ZimCopy, the RRO in Zimbabwe, went into great detail explaining the changes that the organisation has been implementing since early 2016. Dr Makore, who is also acting director, explained that the new board will introduce further significant changes to the organisation and the way of working. 
From the building of membership to licensing activities and awareness activities co-organised with the government, Dr Makore is convinced that  ZimCopy will start delivering results for authors and publishers in the country. He also announced that they will lobby the government in order to have the Copyright and Neighbouring Rights Act amended in order to face the challenges of the digital world.
