ELSPA's Rawlinson Promoted to IP Theft Coalition Vice Chair

July 14, 2010 -

Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA) Director General Michael Rawlinson will also now serve as Vice Chairman of the Alliance Against IP Theft.

Rawlinson previously served as Treasurer for the organization for two years. The Alliance Against IP Theft was founded in 1998 in order to make certain that “intellectual property rights receive the protection they need and deserve. Members include ELSPA, the Business Software Alliance (BSA), the British Video Association (BVA), the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA), the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Video Standards Council (VSC).

The appointment, it was said, would “ensure the continuing representation of the interactive entertainment industry in the field of intellectual property.”

Rawlinson commented, “With the UK games software industry alone estimated to lose £350m annually as a result of IP theft, ELSPA’s involvement has never been more important, and follows on from the work we already undertake through our IP Crime Unit and of course our continuing engagement with the Digital Economy Act.”

MaskedPixelanteSounds like BN was going after an unrelated mod, and took out DSFix in the process. Probably once a counterclaim goes out, this'll all be sorted out.12/22/2014 - 7:04pm

E. Zachary KnightIf you are downloading a copy in order to bypass the DRM, then you are legally in the wrong. Ethically, if you bought the game, it doesn't matter where you download it in the future.12/19/2014 - 12:06pm
