John Wiley & Sons Inc., a global leader in research and education, has been elected by members of the Audiovisual Anti-Piracy Alliance (AAPA) to join its alliance. The first global publisher to join the AAPA, Wiley shares the organisation’s commitment to strengthen the fight against online piracy and the protection of intellectual property rights in Europe, the Middle East and around the globe.
AAPA’s mission is to lead the fight against audiovisual piracy through effective lobbying, supporting law enforcement and building partnerships to tackle piracy. In partnership with Wiley, they aim to continue raising awareness to discourage piracy; building private and public partnerships; lobbying for better legislation and enforcement; sharing content protection strategies; and providing a unique perspective from the publishing industry on today’s piracy challenges.
The announcement underscores Wiley’s continued commitment globally to protect intellectual property rights; in the US, working closely with the Association of American Publishers (AAP), to which Wiley’s President and CEO Brian Napack was recently named Chairman of the Board.
