    Your Solution to Online Piracy

  • The better content you produce, the more it is pirated online with someone else profiting from your investment.

    How many times has it been said that piracy must be stopped, but then it all got lost in the debates between policy makers, law enforcement and legal professionals?


    You may find it hard to believe but there is a solution to a global piracy problem!

  • Can it be done Internally

    Of course it can. However, it would require a significant investment in IT and employing a group of multilingual experts to run the operation 24/7. And proper training, equipment and leadership. On the other hand, outsourcing anti-piracy to us provides you with the best possible solution for a fraction of the cost. We will deal with the piracy, while you focus on running your business.

  • Piracy is Larger Than You Think

    Over 300 million people in the developed countries regularly access pirated audiovisual content. Other industries are no exceptions. Computer games, software, music and ebooks are all being distributed illegally. Creative companies are losing a money especially in the rich markets, where buyers switch to free alternative. As of 2014, there were 170 million illegal viewers in Europe alone and this number keeps growing.

  • Why Lawyers and Law Enforcement Fail

    Torrents, being a long time focus of the industry and the authorities, are a thing of the past. The use of P2P networks has been declining for years while streaming websites and cloud storages are on the rise. From the legal point of view, users using such sources are not breaking the law. However, they do hurt your wallet. Same goes to your legal bills and fees for just another, purely informative report on global piracy, discussing outdated trends such as torrents.

  • Stop Believing in Fairytales

    Let's face it, whilst hoping for a never-coming miraculous legislative change you're losing money every day. So called experts are trying to sell you various theories. Perhaps, at some point they may have made you believe that piracy was a good marketing tool and even generated publicity. But whatever they told you, deep inside you knew - THEFT IS ALWAYS A LOSS.

  • Is it Legal to Remove Copyrighted Content from the Internet

    Every content owner or its authorised agent is eliglible for sending Takedown Notices based on EU Copyright Directive or DMCA to administrators or ISPs or the servers that infringe its copyrights. The clou is to detect all instances of illegal content, and to send notices quicker than the content is being reuploaded. It sometimes means even a few thousand notices per title per day. Don't even start if you think of doing it manually.

  • Piracy became a lifestyle choice of many users

    A distinct change in attitude to piracy has taken place. Stealing someone’s work is no longer perceived as a crime. Instead, content theft became socially acceptable and pirates are seen as modern heroes, providing free content to the masses, while users find new ways to justify their behaviour. Surprisingly, this shift in mentality is supported by many journalists and NGOs.

  • Try it Yourself

Before you ask, there are no hidden costs nor dodgy paragraphs written in small-print. We want you to see and experience anti-piracy hands on.

  • Pirates Exploit Legal Loopholes

    Safe Harbour provisions grant website operators immunity from copyright liability stemming from storing and transmitting infringing material. If you don't take steps yourself, your content will remain available for free. From a legal standpoint, until correctly notified, people and institutions that distribute your content without authorisation aren't even 'pirates'.

  • "It's called piracy cancer... and it's fatal at the moment"

    John Jarrat, Actor

  • "You wouldn't steal a handbag, you wouldn't steal a car, you wouldn't steal a baby, you wouldn't shoot a policeman and then steal his helmet. You wouldn't go to the toilet in his helmet, and then send it to the policeman's grieving widow and then steal it again! Downloading films is stealing, if you do it you WILL face the consequences."

    Anti-Piracy DVD Warning, IT Crowd

  • "You wouldn't download a car"


  • “If you create something and then someone takes it without your permission, that is stealing. It may sound harsh, but it is true.”

    Mary J Blige

  • “One of the many aspects of this issue that is so troubling, is the cavalier fashion in which so many approach it, as if it just isn't serious business. It is of course…It’s theft, plain and simple; and we need to do all that we can to see that it stops!”

    Richard Carpenter

  • We'll steal your files and steal your bits, upload them to pirate ships, then hoist anchor and sail away to the fabled pirate bay"

  • “But the main thing is that a whole generation already violates copyright, and the only thing we can do now is find better solutions”

    Per Eirik Johansen, EMI Norway
