On October 15, ACE announced that Comcast and Viacom have joined the organization, which is dedicated to anti-piracy. Subsidiaries of each of these companies – NBCUniversal and Paramount Pictures respectively – had been existing members; but the parent companies are now all-in.

Why it matters
Strength in numbers is key to fighting video piracy. ACE’s roster of more than 30 members is a who’s who of major media producers and distributors, collaborating to pursue and prosecute industrial-scale pirates around the world. ACE members have announced anti-piracy wins in North America, Asia and elsewhere.
