Takedown Piracy Develops Custom Tool Capable

of Removing 100,000 Piracy Infringements in 24 Hours

Progressive, Outside-the-Box Thinking Powers Leading

Anti-Piracy Service’s Elimination of Over 2.3 Million Infringements!

March 31, 2011 — MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — Anti-piracy leader Takedown Piracy (TDP) announces the development of its patent-pending, custom tool, The Aikido Program.  The tool is capable of removing up to 100,000 copyright infringements in only 24-hours.  The Aikido Program is exclusive only to TDP and uses a PHP script to exploit a large piracy aggregation site.  It takes a site meant to assist in piracy and transforms it into a valuable asset in anti-piracy.  Progressive, outside-the-box thinking is why TDP is the most demanded anti-piracy service in adult entertainment, eliminating over 2.3 million copyright infringements as of the end of March.  Owner Nate Glass says, “I named this amazing tool the Aikido Program after the martial art using the power of one’s opponent against them.  After all, this is a fight the adult industry is engaged in, and we need to create alternative methods of battle in order to survive.”

The Aikido Program targets a cyberlocker aggregator.  Cyberlockers are online storage sites that offer financial incentives for pirates to become copyright infringers.   Because there is a financial motivation attached, this type of pirate does not want to hide; it wants its uploads to be as visible as possible.   To do this, it spreads its uploads over hundreds of websites at once.  This gives rise to sites functioning as aggregators of piracy sites.  While these sites might seem to be a huge problem for copyright holders, in actuality, they perform a valuable service by containing huge numbers of infringements in one place.  With this knowledge, Takedown Piracy enlisted a software programmer to build a custom PHP script allowing the extraction of large numbers of results from the most trafficked cyberlocker aggregators, all while maintaining anonymity in the process.

“Companies want to see every piracy site destroyed, but realistically, piracy is never going to go completely away,” says Glass.  “While it may seem counter intuitive, sometimes the pirates themselves can be a great asset.  The Aikido Program turns their own power against them.”

The result of the Aikido Program is a proportionally huge number of infringements removed.  For one of Takedown Piracy’s larger adult studio clients, over 100,000 infringements were terminated in merely 24 hours.  Medium sized studios using TDP experienced between 25,000 and 30,000 infringements eliminated in only a few hours.

Glass adds, “It was important to me the Aikido Program not be a one-time shot.  I had the programmer build out the script in a way allowing for repeat actions, which aren’t redundant.  This turns top piracy sites into valuable assets for my clients.”

Takedown Piracy actively tracks at least nine different ways content may be pirated, providing widespread coverage.  Takedown Piracy offers 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.

CLK – Cyber Locker Killer

So in the piracy world these days, the largest and fastest growing segment of piracy comes from cyberlockers.  All over the world, 14 year olds rush to upload the latest pirated movies to a cyberlocker and spread the links all over the internet in hopes of clearing $16 in revenue by the end of the month.  It’s sad really, but in some of these third world countries, $20 USD is enough to make you a real mack daddy, or at least to buy you some more blank DVD-r’s, so you can peddle camcorder captures of Battle LA at the local flea market.  Like I said, real mack daddies.

In my latest Stats update I showed that over 1/3 of all the infringements I’ve removed have come from Cyberlockers and admittedly,  I’m still scratching the surface of the cyberlocker infestation.  Now as a realist, I know that my goal shouldn’t be to remove every single cyberlocker link for all of my clients, since that’s a largely impossible goal.  Rather my goal is just to take out so many that it becomes an unprofitable venture for the cashwhore spammers.  It’s kind of like war – you don’t have to kill EVERY soldier on the other side, just kill enough of them to make the rest of them drop their rifles and surrender.  Am I right or what France?

But to reach my goal, I had to be willing to pay a price and boy did I ever.  I recently procured the talents of a programming specialist who was handsomely compensated to the tune of one million dollars to write me a custom piece of software to take out cyberlocker links.  OK, so it wasn’t one million dollars, but let’s just say it was more than $1.50 and less than $1,000,000. Somewhere in between…only my tax man knows for sure.

Anyways, I unleashed this badboy tool on a nice cyberlocker site today and do you want to hear the results?  Huh Huh?  Do ya????

Am I the only one that gets freaking annoyed when people can’t put their shopping carts back in the shopping cart stall?  It’s like how lazy of a society are we really?  Until we can put the shopping cart back I just don’t think our society deserves any respect.  I say revoke voting rights for all the lazy bastards who can’t put their shopping cart back where they got it.  We’re so lazy we’ll spend 15 minutes driving around the parking lot at Target so we can get a parking spot that’ll trim off our walking time by 32 seconds.  Plus, spend another 5 minutes backing into the parking spot like we’re going to fucking rob the place and have to make a fast getaway or something, only to come out after buying a bunch of cheap made in China plastic crap, complain about socialized healthcare and then be too fat and too lazy to walk our cart 12 feet to the shopping cart stall.  Knowing full well that later on some gust of wind will blow that shopping cart into someone’s car, causing a big scratch that really just causes everyone’s insurance rates to go up, and since our big fat lazy asses couldn’t walk a few extra feet every now and then, the eventual diabetes will eventually put your dumb ass in the emergency room where the rest of us will have to pay for your medical care, until you eventually die.  And to those I say…You Deserved It.  Lazy fucking assholes.  Anyway, where was I?

Oh yeah…the results.

One Client.  One site.  One 24 hour time period.

31,000+ links killed.

31,000.

This was a pretty prototypical studio too, usual output of DVDs and internet business.

Tomorrow I unleash what I’m calling the CLK (CyberLocker Killer) for another studio, then another, and another until I’ve went through my entire client list.  I’m expecting this to result in easily half a million removals.  This will all be done in the space of a few weeks.  So far I’ve completed 12 studios and I started using this badboy 5 days ago.

The beauty in this tool is in it’s simplicity.  First of all, it takes something developed by pirates and for pirates and co-opts that to be used for anti-piracy.  Then using my CLK it does it’s thing, then I use another tool developed by pirates and a few mouse clicks later and I’m sending DMCA’s to cyberlockers with URLs numbering in the 1000s.

I fucking love using pirate tools to aid the anti-piracy effort.  I mean not only is it poetic justice, but the freeloaders have no right to complain.  After all, one of their talking points is to mention how “Information is morally neutral”.  So just because they developed their little tool to help them find Justin Bieber songs for free, doesn’t mean I can use it to wipe out your entire Fileserve.com stash and your lazily put together WordPress blog (and yes I realize the irony in me saying that), and your HornyWhores/AdultBay ripoff theme because after all….software can’t be blamed for what it does right?

So in summation, I would just like to say that if you’re clever, innovative and have between $1.50 and $1,000,000 you too can develop a bitchin’ anti-piracy tool.  And don’t forget to put your shopping cart back into the stall.

Kirk out.

Takedown Piracy Removes 1.6 Million Infringements

Owner Nate Glass restructures TDP to increase performance, activity and awareness

Takedown Piracy Removes 1.6 Million Infringements

Posted Feb 25th, 2011 08:00 AM

MARINA DEL REY, Calif.—Piracy is one of the top issues hurting the adult industry, and each day more torrent, tube and cyberlocker sites launch with stolen content. With more than 1.6 million content infringements removed, Takedown Piracy (TDP) is providing the adult industry with a way to fight back by offering copyright holders an affordable and highly effective means to wage war against these thieves.

Owner Nate Glass, a 13-year veteran in the adult industry, started TDP in 2009, while working for Hush Hush Entertainment and Shane’s World. Since leaving Hush Hush in November 2010, Glass has restructured and enhanced the service to increase performance, activity and awareness.

“Since making Takedown Piracy my sole venture, the DMCA notices sent out on any one of my clients has increased by 400 percent monthly,” Glass said. “I am now able to focus entirely on piracy and combat it with a multi-faceted approach. TDP monitors over 200 of the leading piracy culprits, providing clients with monthly breakdowns on our success.  As our company grows, so do our resources and resolve to protect our clients’ content.”

More than 50 of the adult industry’s leading studios utilize Takedown Piracy, including Adam & Eve, Wicked Pictures, New Sensations, Hush Hush Entertainment and Girlfriends Films.

“Takedown Piracy often has our pirated content removed before we even know it was stolen,” said Girlfriends Films Vice President Moose. “They are available any time of day we need them, and if we notify them of an infringement, it’s handled in a matter of hours. Nate goes right to the source of the piracy on our behalf, not wasting time on end-user litigation. We don’t want to punish those interested in watching a Girlfriends Films movie. Going after the uploaders ensures our movies are obtained the legal way.”

Andrew S., owner of Hush Hush Entertainment, added, “Takedown Piracy is worth every cent I pay them to protect our content; actually, it would be worth it paying twice as much. With piracy on the rise, it’s even more important for studios to invest in counter measures, and there is no one better than Takedown Piracy’s Nate Glass. His DMCA results continue to grow exponentially each month, which in turn, is great for our bottom line.”

Takedown Piracy actively tracks at least nine different ways content may be pirated, and offers protection in the following areas: Cyberlocker sites like Rapidshare, Torrent sites, tube sites, auctioned or unauthorized DVD resellers, search engines, image hosts, blogs, forums, and social media.
