Rawlinson joins Alliance Against IP Theft

ELSPA DG steps up to protect rights of IP owners

Michael Rawlinson, director general of the Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association, has been appointed vice chairman of the Alliance of IP Theft.

The alliance is a group of 20 organisations and enforcement agencies dedicated to protecting the rights of IP owners.

"With the UK games software industry alone estimated to lose £350 million 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," commented Rawlinson.

"As ELSPA transitions to the Association of UK Interactive Entertainment, to reflect the evolution and growth of the industry, I look forward to working with the Alliance to ensure the rights of our members receive adequate protection."
