This news thanks to Gamasutra is a good start toward getting rid of video game piracy in China.
CDC Games - a Chinese online game developer has formed an alliance with CCP Games, Ons On Soft, Sonokong, T3 Entertainment and Wemade - called the Online Game Alliance Against Piracy (OGAAP).
The goals of OGAAP are to establish a platform for industry participants and stakeholders to exchange ideas and share experiences; conduct market and technology research; propose industry-wide policies and practices; and lobby relevant government bodies and lawmakers to enact anti-piracy legislation.
The only thing I can think of here is.... why hasn't this been done yet to combat the RMT (Real Money Trading) market that has plagued online games since the turn of the millenium? Is it really something companies want to continue fighting on their own?
