Wizzard Media (NYSE MKT: WZE), the leading digital media podcast network, today announced that FAB was awarded the CICE Golden Copyright Enterprise Award for their leading efforts in adhering to the promotion of copyright content and the protection of intellectual property.
During the Fourth China International Copyright Expo (CICE) recently held in Beijing, FAB, one of the largest exhibitors and sponsors, reached copyright agreements with three well-known content publishers and five content producers. The CICE Expo attracted industry associations and copyrighted content providers from 185 countries.
“Insisting on the protection of copyrights and resisting piracy is the core belief to which FAB always adheres,” said Mr. Zhang Hongcheng, Founder and Chairman of FAB. “Making the FAB Intelligent Media Kiosks a copyright content distribution platform and providing users with easy access to high-quality digital content is the top business priority of FAB.” FAB has a large library of copyrighted digital content including digital movies, TV shows, video, ebooks, games, music and strategic relationships with more than a hundred digital content providers across Asia.
In February 2010, FAB led the way in joining forces with more than 100 media companies and more than 100 performers and film producers for the purpose of enhancing copyright protection in China. FAB co-sponsored the first Chinese anti-piracy organization, the National Anti-Piracy Association and Mr. Zhang Hongcheng was elected as the founding Chairman. In December, 2010, FAB was named the Most Influential Enterprise of China’s Copyright Industry by the Copyright Society of China.
