MARINA DEL REY, Calif.—Takedown Piracy has increased its operating systems for more effective copyright policing. The increase in computers and servers is in keeping with Takedown Piracy owner Nate Glass’s business model.
Glass is committed to reinvesting revenue back in the company, furthering growth and results. Now Takedown Piracy is able to dedicate individual operating systems to monitor the various forms of piracy, including cyberlocker infringements, torrents, tube sites and social network sites. The advanced Aikido Program will run off its own server, generating the removal of even more infringements in a shorter time.
“Takedown Piracy began as a passion project for me—something I wanted to do because it’s the right thing to do,” Glass said. “As the company grows, it becomes even more important to hold true to our ideals and vision. Reinvesting the majority of our revenue is an investment in our customers. It keeps us focused on our mission to remove, prevent and educate the world about piracy.”

Takedown Piracy utilizes a multi-faceted approach towards preventing online content theft. Among its array of servers is one dedicated solely to monitoring over 500 cyberlocker forums and blogs daily, as well as sending infringement notices to the sites. Another server’s focus is on BitTorrent sites, tracking the websites responsible for the brunt of torrent infringements. The result is torrent removals and notices sent to Google for non-compliant sites.
The observance of the largest tube and streaming sites, plus Twitter, requires a separate server, which generates infringement notices. In addition, a server is utilized as the Googler. It constantly runs through Google results for client’s properties and generates removal notices.
Among the many attributes separating Takedown Piracy from its competitors is its new custom tool, the Aikido Program, which is now running on a separate server as well. The progressive tool is capable of removing 100,000 copyright infringements in only 24 hours. The Aikido Program is exclusive to TDP and uses a PHP script to exploit a large piracy aggregation site. It takes a site meant to assist illegal downloads and transforms it into a valuable asset in anti-piracy. True to its martial arts namesake, the Aikido Program uses the strength of its opponent to its own advantage.
Wanting to better involve the fans of Takedown Piracy’s numerous artist clients, the company created a tips page. Millions of additional eyes provide Takedown Piracy with an army seeking out illegal downloads on torrent, tube and cyberlocker sites. Users are asked to report the copyright owner and a link to the infringement.
