Jay Chou starts original copy charity event on copyright day, completely against piratingby kelvin@multistars - 26th April 2012
A few days ago Jay Chou has been troubled over the "paparazzi secretly photographing incident", he once said at the start of the month, he will be calling all celebrities on the 25th to participate in a "avengement plan" event, at the time a lot of the media misunderstood this as an anti-paparazzi event. But as 25th has come, Jay Chou and good friends, Vincent Fang, Ice Cream, The Drifters and more have started the charity event "Love original, protect and respect the intellectual property rights of entertainment artists", as soon as the event's video VCR came out, it immediately spread amongst netizens, the interesting thing is the event's "Love original announcement" has been combined with Director Chou's catchphrase, to become "Love original, it's free enough..... Aiyo not bad....." This has become the "golden phrase" for netizens' blog posts supporting original.
Every year on the 26th of April it is "World intellectual property right day", this year's theme is "genius creative newcomers", the moral of it is that only by protecting intellectual property rights can you incite and grow even more genius creative newcomers. But in previous years this date has not been noticed many many, but as the pirating situation becomes worse by the day, the action of pirating is already not just infringing on the intellectual property rights of artists, but more serious it is disturbing the arts market, for the 12th "World intellectual property rights day", Jay Chou and his good friends started the support original charity event "Love original, buy freedom", calling on everyone to fight against pirating together, and protect and respect the intellectual property rights of artists, boost the health of the industry.
According to reports, for this charity event, Jay Chou not only took out his own collection of originals autographed to give to fans, but he also invited his good friends to participate in the "support original" charity event. Towards Jay Chou's "charity justice" actions, he has gotten the approval from fans and netizens, a lot of netizens think his name of "Batman" is well earned. According to reports netizens who participate in this event will have the chance of being in the charity movie "100 charity ambassadors. Support 100% original" along with Jay Chou and others.
Towards pirating, perhaps for a lot of people it is already a habit, as a music writer Jay Chou has always hated it, Jay Chou once said to the media: "In fact being a musician is very tough, it's not easy to write a good song, if pirating continued, this is a very big threat to artists who have many dreams, the rights and benefits of fans will also be harmed...", perhaps knowing the feeling personally, perhaps being influenced by the recent controversial topic of "music work copyright protection period", towards Jay Chou's "Love original, protect and respect artists' intellectual property rights" event, a lot of industry people have given their support on blogs.
According to reports, this time's "Love original. Support original" event will run for nearly 2 months, Sina blog will be supporting fully, everyone can go to the event's blog on Sina and participate in the event for a chance to win Jay Chou's limited edition signed albums and other gifts, this is only Jay Chou's first step in fighting "pirating", later there will be even more events.
