Anti-Piracy System Makes Strides in UK

In one year the UK-based PRS for Music’s Anti-Piracy System (MAPS) has made great strides against piracy. The collection society claims it has located 5 million infringing URLs and removed more than 80% of reported links, as well as sending 136,000 takedown notices to websites linking to or hosting music illegally. The system allows users to track and request takedowns of unlicensed materials.
