Piracy makes strange bedfellows: A group of 30 entertainment companies - including Netflix, Disney, Amazon, CBS, NBCUniversal and Warner Bros. - have formed a new worldwide coalition aimed at fighting piracy.

The mission of the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment is to reduce the prevalence of online piracy, and the companies said ACE will draw on the anti-piracy resources of the MPAA. Specifically, the group plans to conduct research, work with law enforcement to curtail illegal pirate enterprises and “pursue voluntary agreements with responsible parties across the internet ecosystem” (such as search engines like Google and broadband service providers).

They’re also expecting to sue piracy enterprises: The members of the new coalition said they plan to file civil litigation in their fight against copyright infringement.

ACE, which has launched a website at alliance4creativity.com, brings together a diverse group of companies - many of which compete with each other. The members are: Amazon, AMC Networks, BBC Worldwide, Bell Canada and Bell Media, Canal Group, CBS, Constantin Film, Foxtel, Grupo Globo, HBO, Hulu, Lionsgate, MGM, Millennium Media, NBCUniversal, Netflix, Paramount Pictures, SF Studios, Sky, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Star India, Studio Babelsberg, STX Entertainment, Telemundo, Televisa, Twentieth Century Fox, Univision Communications, Village Roadshow, the Walt Disney Company and Warner Bros. Entertainment.
