TOKYO -- Publishers and streaming platforms from over 10 countries, including Japan, the U.S. and China, will come together to curb piracy of manga and anime, creating an organization to help with criminal investigations in the field.

Japan-based anti-piracy group CODA is building a huge coalition dedicated to tackling illegal online distribution of anime, manga and similar copyrighted content. The International Anti-Piracy Organisation will be compromised of 32 local companies including publisher Kodansha, Hollywood studios plus Netflix, and around 450 companies in China.

In the summer of 2017, some of the world’s largest entertainment groups formed a huge coalition with a mission to reduce online piracy.

Comprised of more than 30 companies, the Alliance for Creativity is now at the forefront of global anti-piracy enforcement. By combining its members’ resources to tackle infringement wherever it may occur in the world, the cross-border nature of piracy is now being addressed more effectively.

A new anti-piracy group set to launch this April appears to have similar goals in mind.

At the heart of IAPO will sit the Japan-based anti-piracy group Content Overseas Distribution Association (CODA). Director Masaharu Ina informs TorrentFreak that CODA planned the foundation of the IAPO coalition last year and talks have been held with the Motion Picture Association (MPA), the Copyright Society of China, plus other organizations around the world.

“Our plan is to start the new organization in or around April this year and share the information on piracy sites compiled in each country and provide same to the police of the country where the servers are located for example,” he explains.

Information shared with Nikkei indicates that copyright protection groups from around 13 countries will join together in a single international organization with the goal of disrupting piracy around the world.

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
