Japanese organization warns YouTube

Writers tells online company to remove video clips

The Japan Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers has sent a letter on behalf of 23 Japanese orgs and companies ordering YouTube to remove video clips that infringe copyright.

The letter, sent Monday, also asks YouTube to take steps to stop users from posting such clips in the first place. Jasrac has given YouTube until Dec. 15 to reply.

YouTube removed 30,000 clips after Jasrac filed a first complaint in early October, but the problem has persisted, prompting a second letter.

Ultimately, the Japanese org wants YouTube to screen submissions to keep out pirated clips.
