- About CODA
The Content Overseas Distribution Association（CODA） was founded as an organization through which contents holders and copyright-related organizations cooperate to reduce piracy around the world, and to actively promote the international distribution of Japanese content, such as music, films, animation, TV programs and video games. While CODA was formed to counter content piracy, the organization is now expanding its enterprise in cooperation with domestic and international government agencies, industry organizations and content holders.
On Dec 2, 2013, we merged our secretariat office with that of the Anti-Counterfeiting Association (ACA) in order to strengthen our capability to protect copyright and offer comprehensive measures against copyright infringement in Japan as well as overseas.
