Takedown Piracy celebrates three year anniversary

CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Takedown Piracy is proud to celebrate its 3-year anniversary combatting piracy.  Created by Nate Glass in 2009, Takedown Piracy is known for its highly effective and affordable services, while always operating with the utmost integrity.  Whether harnessing the power of its one-of-a-kind Aikido Program or following up on an individual file reported through its free piracy tip page, Takedown Piracy has been responsible for the removal of over 6.5 million copyright infringements.

During its 3-years, Takedown Piracy has made customer service a priority.  Clients are continually provided with detailed reports on all removed copyright infringements, while having the ability to contact Takedown Piracy 16 hours a day.  As a result, Takedown Piracy has an exemplary retention rate.

A client of Takedown Piracy for 2 years, pro wrestler Colt Cabana states, “I’m forever indebted to Takedown Piracy!  Only 3 days after I put out my completely independent movie, word was out it had hit the torrent sites, YouTube, and more.  After funding the whole project myself, this was a scary thought.  This is when Takedown Piracy came in and saved the day (and maybe my life).  Weeks later I had known Internet pirates telling me they couldn’t find my movie anywhere—it was such a great feeling.  I can’t speak more highly about Nate and Takedown Piracy.  They’re really helping the little guy fight the good fight.”

Indie DVD distributor Blue Underground, Inc. has been protected by Takedown Piracy for over a year.  President Willian Lustig says, “Takedown Piracy has opened my eyes to the pervasive, ugly, digital-age underbelly of Internet piracy.  I’m sure Takedown Piracy’s tenacious copyright notice campaign on behalf of Blue Underground has given some pirates pause before going through the effort of posting my company’s copyrighted properties.”

Takedown Piracy also safeguards the digital content of lesbian erotica producer Girlfriends Films.  Vice President Moose says, “It is impossible to predict how much money we would lose if pirates were allowed to steal our movies unchecked, but thanks to Takedown Piracy, we’ll never have to know.  Even as pirates find new and faster ways to upload our content, Nate and his team are right there removing it before we lose sales.  While the mainstream music and movie industries wait around for the government to intervene in matters of copyright infringement, we are taking the fight right to the pirates with Takedown Piracy.  It is the best, and we are lucky to have its protection.”

“Nate does an amazing job in his ongoing battle with removing stolen content from the internet,” adds actress and adult performer Tanya Tate.  “Without people like Nate continuously and tirelessly protecting the intellectual property of performers and companies, new entertainment would be unfeasible to create.  As a director, performer and producer, I personally want to thank Nate for his work and keeping a proactive watch on my website, TanyaTate.com.  I wholeheartedly recommend using the services of Takedown Piracy to any creator who is concerned about their content.”

Each month, Takedown Piracy’s Nate Glass educates readers of AVN Magazine and AVN.com with insightful business news and expert advice regarding digital content protection.  AVN Managing Editor Steve Javors says, “Congrats to Nate Glass and Takedown Piracy on three years of serving the industry.  It was because of Nate’s ‘boots-on-the-ground’ experience battling piracy that I wanted him to write a column for AVN.  Every month, he provides an insider’s view of the scourge of content creators everywhere.  His columns are informative and really have become a must-read.  Cheers to you, Nate, and here’s to many more years of Takedown Piracy.”

Moved by the support of his clients, Nate Glass says, “From the beginning I knew Takedown Piracy was so much more than a job.  It was a mission.  I believe every single one of my clients has the right to protect their art and content.  Pirates feel entitled to take whatever they want online, but if that mentality goes unchecked, we will see a staggering decrease in the amount of music, movies, and books created.  With the discovery and elimination of each new copyright infringement, and the destruction of torrent and cyberlocker sites, Takedown Piracy is determined to prevent that from happening.”

Takedown Piracy and Nate Glass continue to be in the media spotlight for their renowned effectiveness fighting piracy.  Featured on CNBC.com, TechDirt.com, The Daily.com, the 1709 Blog, and more, word is spreading about the small but mighty company, and its David versus Goliath story.
