The Entertainment Software Association is teaming with the Motion Picture Association to fight piracy in Malaysia.
The two groups have launched Operation Games Attack hoping to crush the production and distribution of illegal entertainment software in the Malaysian region, backed by local government.
"The ESA focuses resources where we save US jobs, enhance the value of the videogame industry, and get results," commented Michael Gallagher, president of the ESA.
"Piracy penalizes investment and harms the ability of video game companies to make great games.
"We are proud to partner with MPA on this program which will protect investment, innovation, and job creation - as well as build a strong foundation for expanded trade with Malaysia," he added.
