News JASRAC Asks YouTube to Improve Anti-Piracy Measures

JASRAC, the Japanese Society for the Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers, has sent YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen a letter, on behalf of 23 Japanese TV stations and entertainment companies, requesting that YouTube improve its anti-piracy measures.
Following an earlier complaint from JASRAC, YouTube removed close to 30,000 files from its website. However in the new letter, JASRAC states that the problem persists regardless of the previous deletions, and that a new system must be put in place to prevent the upload of pirated materials. JASRAC requested that YouTube implement a process to screen uploads for pirated material, require users to register (and delete their accounts if they upload pirated material) and place warnings, in Japanese, about illegal uploads.
