  • Redress Copyright Infringement
    With the rapid technology development of photocopying machines and computer networks, copyright works can be easily and widely infringed these days.

By collection, abandonment and deletion of illegal reproductions on/off line, KOLAA brings a civil/criminal action against the Related violator when there is infringement in relation with the entrusted copyright works. Copyright violation is an offense subject to complaint by the copyright owner under Copyright Act.
