ESA Threatens Anti-Piracy Sanctions


Posted February 12, 2008 - By Mike D'Alonzo

The Entertainment Software Association, or ESA, have threatened countries that aren't doing enough to combat piracy with trade sanctions if those countries don't clean up their act. According to an ESA report, piracy is a persistent problem in Canada, China, Malaysia, Russia and other parts of Europe, with piracy levels exceeding 90 percent in some markets and threatening the videogame industry’s growth.

In short, the ESA sure is p.o'd about losing money, even though they had a record-breaking year, pulling in over $18 billion, in 2007. Still, they see piracy in other countries as a real threat, and are adopting language that governments usually reserve for civil rights abuse and other such atrocity as a warning.
