South Lebanon

..... ....Once it was the land of love, of transfiguration, of liberty and of peace. But now, after two thousand years of history, evolution, thought, culture, civilisation and progress, we see an upsurge of hatred, contempt and violence between cousins, through brothers descending from Abraham, both following the calendar of the moon, sons of Isaac and sons of Ismaël. The southern frontier is given over to vengeance, where might is right. It is where the innocent are massacred, as were the innocents of two thousand years ago. I wish to see the South again carrying the good news, the message of that pardon that the Lord asked for his enemies..... ....

Decree N. 2385 of 17/1/1924 as amended by law N. 76 of 3/4/1999 ( articles 2, 5, 15, 49 and 85 ) lays down as follows:
The author of a literary or artistic work, by the very fact of authorship, has absolute right of ownership over the work, without obligation of recourse to formal procedures . The author will himself enjoy the benefit of exploitation of his work, and he possesses exclusive rights of publication and of the reproduction under any form whatsoever. Whether the work in question comes under the public domain or not those persons will be liable to imprisonment for a period of one to three years and to fine of between five and fifty million Lebanese pounds, or to either one of these penalties, who
1-will have appended or caused to be appended a usurped name on a literary or artistic work;
2-will have fraudulently imitated the signature or trademark adopted by an author, with a view to deceiving the buyer;
3-will have counterfeited a literary or artistic work;
4-or will have knowingly sold, received, or put on sale or into circulation a work which is counterfeit or signed with a forged signature.
The punishment will be increased in the event of repetition.
