Background of "Street Fighter V Champion Edition" x "PakuTaso" Collaboration
The e-sports market has been growing rapidly in recent years, and the word "e-sports" has become well known to many people, but there are still few opportunities for people to experience e-sports.
Despite the rapid expansion of the e-sports market, there are few e-sports free materials on the market, and there are no IP holder-approved free materials, so there are no photos that can be used for a wide range of purposes, from corporate media to personal blogs.
While there are many stock photo services that distribute photos with waived rights, this collaboration was made possible by PAKUTASO's ability to distribute and use photos free of charge while protecting game makers' trademarks, copyrights, photographers' copyrights, and other rights.
By distributing the free materials for the Street Fighter V collaboration project approved by Capcom, e-sports free materials that can be used with peace of mind will be distributed free of charge on "PakuTaso," allowing anyone to use e-sports This means that anyone can use e-sports free photo materials without the need for complicated member registration.
In addition, to allow users to enjoy just looking at the photos, scenes from the "CAPCOM Pro Tour 2019 Asia Premiere" and "E-Sports Festival Hong Kong 2019" and actual e-sports competitions are distributed as they are as free materials. The scenes are distributed as free materials.

Street Fighter V eSports Free Material is available completely free of charge!
Completely free! eSports free material that can be used with confidence!
eSports free materials are licensed by IP holders and can be used by anyone without any worries.
With the recent development of SNS and other web services, there is a risk that users will post CC0 images to CC0 image posting services and unknowingly use unlicensed photos as free materials.
In particular, e-sports media and e-sports blogs have been on the rise in recent years, and free materials of actual e-sports events and play scenes with clearly identified game titles are expected to be in high demand.
The "Street Fighter V Champion Edition" free material project is expected to be a great contribution and catalyst for the development of the e-sports industry.
