The European Union’s Judicial Cooperation Unit (Eurojust) has partnered with Europol and the Audiovisual Anti-Piracy Alliance (AAPA) to help “improve the sharing of expertise to tackle audio-visual piracy via IPTV networks.”
The agencies made the announcement at a two-day gathering of more than 70 judicial and law enforcement agencies in The Hague.
Why it matters
International organizations such as these are an important part of the anti-piracy equation. Without collaboration across the media and entertainment industry, regulators, video distributors, governmental agencies and the legal community, piracy will continue to run rampant. Because of collaborations like these, piracy has plateaued and has even dropped in some countries.
