Rightscorp signs China anti-piracy agreement


Rightscorp has signed an agreement with Chinese businessman Vincent Yen on behalf of a “major Chinese media company” to monitor online copyright infringement.

Yen will assist Rightscorp with securing an exclusive anti-piracy deal with the media company to “represent Chinese audio and visual copyrights, and monitor peer-to-peer activity in the US for infringement of Chinese content,” according to Rightscorp.

He added: “We are a proven solution for tracking, enforcement, and monetisation of peer-to-peer infringements, and believe this is yet another testament to the effectiveness of our value and service
