JASRAC and YouTube to Meet

There will be a meeting between JASRAC (Japanese Society for the Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers) and YouTube Executives.

Last week JASRAC sent YouTube a letter requesting the website to step up their anti-piracy regulations. YouTube responded by saying they plan on meeting the demands, and "will come to Japan to discuss these issues with [JASRAC]."

JASRAC and the rights-holders will meet again this week to discuss their next move.

The suggestions from JASRAC are:

- To scan all uploaded material for illegal contents.
- If a user uploads pirated materials, then the user's account will be deleted.
- Warnings in Japanese should be posted on the website.
