Skyworth, a global provider of smart home solutions and the world’s fourth largest set-top box manufacturer, has become the first Chinese company to become a member of the Audiovisual Anti-Piracy Alliance (AAPA).
The alliance represents companies involved in the provision of protected audiovisual services, security technology for such services, and the manufacturing of products which facilitate the delivery of such services.
“In the face of today’s proliferation of content, the fight against piracy is more important than ever to protect the creative industries and the technologies used to distribute content,” comments Stephen Hau, EVP and Overseas General Manager of Skyworth Digital. “Not only does the unauthorized use of content erode the value of intellectual property but it also puts at risk thousands of jobs. Our entry into the AAPA reconfirms our commitment to eliminating piracy.”
