Takedown Piracy Presents Game Changer in Fight Against Piracy

Exclusive New Digital Fingerprinting Program Safeguards Content from Piracy Tube Sites!


LOS ANGELES (November 10, 2014) — The way the adult industry protects its online content from piracy has been revolutionized by Takedown Piracy’s exclusive new digital fingerprinting program.  Utilized as an application in Takedown Piracy’s revered Nemesis™ custom tool, the “game changing” service is now available for adult studios to utilize.


During the beta-testing phase of the digital fingerprinting program, Takedown Piracy was able to verify the accuracy of the digital fingerprints by identifying the copyright holder of hundreds of thousands of videos violating copyright laws on tube sites.  Combined with Nemesis, which analyzes tube sites to pinpoint videos likely to be infringing on copyrights, the program virtually assures pirated material will be found and reported.


“I want to stress how big of a game changer this is in the fight against piracy,” says Takedown Piracy owner Nate Glass, regarding the digital fingerprinting program.  “With this weapon, we will be able to ensure content from our studio partners will not appear on pirate tube sites.”


Available to all content creators, including DVD producers, pay sites, and webcam sites, the digital fingerprinting program is a separate service Takedown Piracy is offering its current and future clients.  For a nominal extra charge on top of Takedown Piracy’s standard services, companies can track all their content.


The digital fingerprinting program is different than any previously attempted in the adult industry.  It’s completely independent, working on any tube site Takedown Piracy applies it to.  “Previously the adult industry tried to use a form of fingerprinting requiring tube sites to voluntarily take part in it,” states Glass.  “This is like asking the fox to guard the henhouse.  Now, we are able to dictate the terms, so we don’t have to rely on the moral conscience of pirates and tube sites.”


Takedown Piracy currently has the program set up to be implemented on 52 websites, with over a dozen more in the works.  These are all actual source tube sites – no embedding sites.


The program is designed solely for detection and removal of infringing content from tube sites and search engines, like Google.  “I’ve never believed in partnering with tube sites – it’s a deal with the Devil,” states Glass.  “Too often copyright holders have tried to monetize piracy by searching for a middle ground with the tube sites.  At the end of the day, the tube sites make more money from pirated content than trying to monetize a promotional trailer.  Because of this, the tubes will never have enough incentive to totally clean up their act.  This new digital fingerprinting program gives content creators the power back.”


Glass will be available to demonstrate how the digital fingerprints work to content producers at AVN Media’s 2015 Internext and Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) in Las Vegas, and XBIZ Media’s 2015 XBIZ 360 in Los Angeles.


Takedown Piracy actively tracks at least nine different ways content may be pirated, providing widespread coverage.  Takedown Piracy’s army of servers offer protection in the following areas: Cyberlocker sites like Rapidshare, Torrent sites, Tube sites, Auctioned or unauthorized DVD resellers, Search Engines, Image Hosts, Blogs, Forums, Social Media.

Update on Filesonic and Wupload being so similar

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about the similarities between Filesonic and Wupload:


Turns out, according to what I’ve been told…the “front man” for Wupload is the cousin of the guy running Filesonic.  How convenient?

Recently Filesonic announced that they were partnering with Vobile to do digital fingerprinting to ID copyrighted material being distributed on their network.  Now unless I’m missing something, this will not be possible with password encrypted rar/zip files and I don’t see how they would do it with even unpassworded  (?) rar/zip files since they would have to combine all the files themselves.

So this seems on the surface to be pretty meaningless.  The only thing Filesonic could do would be to restrict all rar/zip files, which would pretty much ensure that the copyright infringing uploaders that Filesonic’s business is based upon would flee to another service.

If only the people behind Filesonic had another cyberlocker service that they could put all their efforts into….hmmmmm….maybe they should call their “cousin”.  :O)
