History[eedit | eedit soorce]

In early 1950s, muisic piracy stairtit tae grow in the Philippines. So, in 1952, major recordin companies organisit the first recordin industry association in the kintra cried the Record Industry Association of the Philippines (RIAP).[1] The association was mostly composed of foreign licensees.[2] The first preses o RIAP was Manuel P. Villar of Mareco. In 1971, independent record companies decidit tae bond together an formit the Philippine Recording Industry Association (PRIA). Its primar goal wis tae promote local records. PRIA electit their first preses which wis Jose Mari Gonzales o Cinema-Audio.[3] In their years of existence, the two organizations had cooperated with each other in fighting piracy.

In 10 Februar 1972, anither organization in the record industry wis creatit cried the Philippine Association of the Record Industry (PARI). Antonio Lustre o the Home Industries Development Corporation (HIDCOR) wis electit as its first preses.[4] Efter the first twa organizations wur disbandit, PARI became the anerly an legitimate association o the record companies in the Philippines, combinin baith major an independent record companies.

In 1990, the association began certifeein recordit muisic in the Philippines. Constant Change bi Jose Mari Chan wis the first iver album tae be certifee'd. It wis certifee'd diamond in 10 November 1990. Syne the awairds program wis launched, anerly five albums wur certifee'd diamond bi PARI.[5] Aside frae Constant Change, the ither fower are:

Ither than certifeein albums, the organisation certifees singles an muisic videos. In 16 Januar 2013, the first iver single wis certifeed. It wis "I'll Be There" bi Julie Anne San Jose an it wis certifee'd platinum durin that time. As o nou, it remained the anerly single tae be certifee'd an it currently haulds a 4x platinum certification.[6][5] On the ither haund, nae muisic videos are certifee'd yet.

The Philippine Association of the Record Industry filed a complaint against the popular torrent wabsteid KickassTorrents, resultin in its seizur bi Philippine authorities on 13 Juin 2013.[7]
