Nico Douga to remove fanmade anime videos
July 2nd, 2008

tegakimodamekayoCNET Japan reports that Nico Nico Douga has come to an agreement with The Association of Japanese Animations (AJA), Japan Video Software Association (JVA), and Motion Picture Producers Association of Japan (MPPA) to remove vids that are in violation of copyright belonging to members of these organizations.

This includes all fan made videos that violate the copyrights of members of these organizations. They will start deleting all existing videos that are in violation and will monitor all newly uploaded videos for violations.

AJA is made up of 34 full members and 22 associate members comprising of anime studios such as Gonzo, Sunrise, and Studio Ghibli. JVA has 35 members including Walt Disney Japan, Kadokawa Shoten, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and MPPA is made up of 4 members consisting of Shochiku, Toho, Toei, and Kadokawa Eiga.

I guess that means Nico douga is only going to be left with Touhou, Idolmaster, Vocaloid, people dancing and singing, and game vids.
