JASRAC (Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers) announced that the U.S. video-posting website YouTube’s CEO and CTO will visit them in February to discuss the request made by them to remove the large volume (about 30,000) of copyright infringements found on YouTube. It looks that Google’s managements will also attend the meeting with YouTube and JASRAC.
Japan became the biggest market for YouTube in 2006. I’m sure YouTube wants JASRAC to know that they take its request seriously. Whatever they agreed upon at the meeting may become the standard for the rest of the markets/countries???
