China Firm R2G Teams Up With Universal To Fight Piracy

Universal_1Yahoo:  An agreement has been signed whereby the Chinese firm R2G will help Universal protect its labels from pirates by using high-tech software to track music illegally downloaded from the Internet... Apparently, R2G will be given rights to distribute and monitor Universal's music labels. R2G will work with ISP's and use its technology to check to see if payment is made to the companies with the licenses when music is downloaded...R2G states that China has 100 million web users and about 80 percent of them have downloaded music. To make matters worse though, there are few monitoring agencies to enforce the anti-piracy rules. "In China there's limited effective policing against music piracy online," said Mathew Daniel, director of business development for R2G.
