700,000 less pirate tube videos…

As we closed 2015 we have now removed over 700,000 pirated tube videos.  In case you’re wondering…that’s a lot.  Imagine if the average run time of those videos was 20 minutes.  That’s 14,000,000 minutes worth of videos.  Or 233,333 hours.  Or 9,722 days.  Or 26.6 years worth of pirated content.  You might want to use some lotion after all that viewing.

Here’s to an even bigger 2016.  The end of tube piracy is near.  Let’s kick even more ass in 2016 than we did in 2015!

What we do to pirates
What we do to pirates.

Takedown Piracy’s Nate Glass Earns Progressive Leadership Award Nom from 2015 XBIZ Executive Awards

Industry’s Most Renowned Anti-Piracy Expert & Advocate Is on a Mission to Protect Copyrighted Content from Theft!

xea15-nom-medium

LOS ANGELES (November 26, 2014) — Takedown Piracy owner Nate Glass is nominated for the Progressive Leadership Award at the 2015 XBIZ Executive Awards. As the adult industry’s most renowned anti-piracy expert and advocate, Glass is on a mission to protect copyright content from theft. Along the way, he continues to garner mass amounts of media attention on piracy, as well as the adult industry as a whole.

As stated on XBIZExecAwards.com, nominees for the Progressive Leadership Award are pioneers blazing unknown trails to explore what’s on the horizon and adopt new strategies often becoming standard practices for years to come. Their risks often go hand in hand with their creativity.

“Thank you so much to everyone at XBIZ for this honor – I’m shocked, moved, and proud,” says Glass. “XBIZ has been a great supporter of Takedown Piracy over the years, for which I am extremely appreciative.”

Though grateful for the nomination, Glass’ path to grow one of the most effective and well-known anti-piracy services in the world did not stem from a desire to be liked. In fact, it has made him one of the most hated men on the Internet, often receiving death threats from digital pirates.

Earlier this year, tech website DailyDot.com referred to Glass as a “polarizing figure on the Internet,” and the “Luke Skywalker” of piracy, though Forbes.com previously dubbed him the “Darth Vader of porn piracy.”

Additional 2014 media attention surrounding Glass and Takedown Piracy includes being prominently featured on ABC’s Nightline,” as well as expert commentary in articles from Men’s HealthBBC NewsUSA Today,Wired.comAnnenberg TV NewsHuffington PostSalonWashington PostCreative Loafing, and more.

Glass also spoke with Wicked Pictures contract performer jessica drake at two top universities this year – University of Chicago and University of Southern California. Their lecture on “The Piracy of Sex” is detailed in a feature article on popular tech site BetaBeat.com.

“It’s been a crazy year of new developments, media coverage, speaking engagements, and battling piracy, but this XBIZ nomination really is one of the highlights,” says Glass. “It reminds of the reason I do this – for my friends and colleagues in the industry who I greatly respect and want to help protect.”

Takedown Piracy made waves in the entertainment industry earlier in November when it announced its new, exclusive 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. Glass will be available to demonstrate how the digital fingerprints work to content producers at AVN Media’s 2015 Internext andAdult Entertainment Expo (AEE) in Las Vegas, and XBIZ Media’s 2015 XBIZ 360 in Los Angeles.

The XBIZ Executive Awards will be held on January 14 at the Andaz Hotel, 8401 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood. It honors the industry’s outstanding individuals who have helped further their company’s success.

Takedown Piracy Presents Game Changer in Fight Against Piracy

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

logo

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.

Remembering Christian Mann

Last night, a great man left this Earth.

As a young clerk at New Fine Arts in Dallas, I religiously read AVN every month, and that is where I first learned of this guy named Christian Mann. I learned that he was one of the freedom fighters that stood up to a puritanical government that wanted to control what consenting adults could do in the privacy of their bedrooms. I was immediately determined to one day meet this man, shake his hand and then be able to tell friends and co-workers – “I met Christian Mann!”

Fast forward a couple of years and I had moved on to Dreamers, and eventually I got to go to the AEE conference in Vegas. I got to meet Christian but it was a brief handshake. Not nearly enough to satisfy my fanboy crush on him. I was going to have to work harder. Opportunity presented itself when Christian’s company Video Team was bought by another, Metro Interactive, and lo and behold my new point of contact for orders at Metro became Christian Mann. I was giddy. But at this point I was still a nobody, I had never really even talked to Chris for more than 2 seconds. Luckily for me, Christian had become good friends over the years with the owner of Dreamers and his wife. When I told my boss we’d be dealing with Christian now, my boss was as ecstatic as I was. He immediately began telling me stories of Christian and CPLC. He told me, “if you ever have a problem, you call Christian – he will take care of it, he’s a good man”. The legend of Christian was building.

I soon started placing orders with Christian and got to know him a little more and he also got to know me more and more. He was always funny and witty in our conversations, so much that he made me enjoy talking on the phone, and anyone that knows me knows that I loathe phone conversations 99% of the time.

Eventually my time at Dreamers was up and I moved out to LA to work for Shane’s World and Hush Hush Entertainment. We started a little monthly newsletter where I got to write editorial articles and generally put people on blast for doing unethical stuff. We made a lot of fans, but also a lot of enemies. Eventually we needed to pursue advertisers, and Christian Mann, now the general manager of arguably the biggest production studios, was one of the first people I pursued. Having a company like Evil Angel advertising in our magazine would be a huge statement of legitimacy for our little operation. I reached out to Christian and he agreed to start putting a two-page ad in our mag. I was ecstatic.

A year or so later marked the start of Operation: Takedown Piracy. I was fed up with seeing our content pilfered online not to mention the content of other studios where my good friends were working. Again, I reached out to Christian to try and get him on board. Early on I needed “impact studios” to give Takedown Piracy some real teeth to go after pirates. Once again, Christian came through for me and got Evil Angel on board. I’ll be honest, practically no one else over at Evil Angel knew who I was and quite frankly, the few who did probably didn’t care for me all that much. They only knew me as “the guy that talks shit about people in that magazine”, and they were fair to think that. But I knew I was more than that, and more importantly – Christian knew I was more than that. He was my voucher, and friends, you can not possibly have a better voucher than Christian Mann.

We began taking down content for Evil Angel and boy there was a lot of it, and I worked tirelessly at it. I went to Vegas for AEE and Christian jokingly asked “Do you sleep????”, he teased me about getting DMCAs from me at all hours of the day and night and that I must be a robot or something. He was playfully teasing, but what I heard was one of my role models praising my work-ethic. If Christian was impressed by my hard work, that was the ultimate seal of approval. Again, I was giddy.

Then one day Christian emailed me out of the blue and said that we needed to talk and for me to come by the EA offices. He didn’t say what it was about and he was very short and to the point in the email. I was absolutely panicked. This was my role model and our biggest client and my immediate fear was that they were dropping out. “Was I not working hard enough?”, “Did I do something wrong?”, all these worried thoughts ran through my head as I drove from Chatsworth to Van Nuys. I pulled up to the office, thinking “Christian is such a nice guy, he’s cancelling but wants to be a professional about it and tell me face to face.”

I sat down with Christian and after exchanging the usual pleasantries, we immediately got to the purpose of me being there. “You aren’t charging us nearly enough for the amount of work you’re doing. I want you to double our rate and use that to help grow your business.” ‘Ummmmmm yes sir’ was about all I was able to say. This was huge, and it just doesn’t happen in this biz, let alone probably any business. Here was this guy who wanted to make sure I was being fairly compensated and wanted to not just say he wanted to see my business grow, but he wanted to play a part and take actions that would help my business grow. That was Christian Mann, that was the kind of man he was. He introduced me to other people at EA and I was on my way, knowing full well the gravity of what this man just did for me.

I am where I am today because of Christian Mann. His support from practically day one has been instrumental in not only my business growth but my personal growth as well. I’ve had the pleasure over the years of meeting people who I held in such high-esteem that you work at being a better person because you want to make them proud. I wanted to be a good fighter for our industry because I wanted to make Christian Mann proud. I wanted to be a good man in life because it means you get to be in the same category as Christian Mann.

Christian may have ended this part of his journey but his impact and influence will live on forever. I know he has inspired others, and it is the job of those of us he touched to pass that inspiration on to others. In that way the legacy of Christian will far outlive anything in the physical realm. I’m so happy Christian had someone as loving and supportive as Melissa Mann to enjoy these last few years with. Their love and happiness together should serve as yet another inspiration for us all. Be good people, inspire others, never stop laughing and being silly and just appreciate everything and everyone.

Godspeed Christian, until we meet again my friend.

 

*********************************************

If you’re friends with Christian and/or Melissa on FB, then you’ve seen the amazing outpouring of messages of condolences, support and love for the both of them.  Christian was part of our industry for well over 30 years, and in that time he’s come in contact with virtually everyone in our biz at one time or another.  The amazing thing is he left a positive energy on everyone.  He is in my opinion the most universally beloved man in our industry.  You can read some of the industry takes on Chris on AVN and Xbiz.  I know everyone is very saddened by his passing, but reading and hearing everyone’s stories about Christian is somewhat heartwarming – he just used so much of his lifeforce to raise up others – that’s something we should all strive for.

University of Southern California Hosts ‘The Piracy of Sex’ Panel Featuring jessica drake, Nate Glass

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 

University of Southern California Hosts ‘The Piracy of Sex’ Panel Featuring jessica drake, Nate Glass

USC Students Treated to April 30 Discussion on Digital Piracy of Adult Movies by Wicked Pictures Contract Star drake & Takedown Piracy Owner Glass!

LOS ANGELES (April 28, 2014) — The University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts will host adult entertainment performer and sexual wellness authority jessica drake and digital piracy expert Nate Glass as featured speakers.  Addressing the interrelated effects of sexual stigma and digital piracy in a panel titled, “The Piracy of Sex,” drake draws upon her experience as a Wicked Pictures contract performer/director, while Glass expands on his work as the owner of Takedown Piracy.  Moderated by David Lerner, Ph.D., the discussion and open format Q&A is scheduled for 7:00 pm on Wednesday, April 30 in USC’S Ray Stark Family Theatre.

 

For more event details, visit USC School of Cinematic Arts’ event page by clicking here.

 

In their ongoing lecture series, “The Piracy of Sex,” Nate Glass and jessica drake explore how the problem of digital piracy is even more prevalent with sexual content.  While the autonomy of the Internet helps generate a larger audience, including women, for porn, fetish videos, and live sex shows, it also allows people to hide behind aliases and justify their actions.  The stigmas still surrounding sexuality contribute to the rampant pirating, as do performers’ lack of funds and resources.  Glass and drake discuss the effect of piracy on sex workers and adult entertainment producers and how they can fight back and protect their copyrights!

 

“I’m excited to speak with USC students,” jessica drake says.  “When I speak on the topic of sex education, I usually focus very heavily on consent.  Piracy is virtual violation of consent, which is why I’m so glad to have someone like Nate helping protect the movies I make, while also touring with me to educate people on the matter.”

 

Nate Glass adds, “Many people dismiss piracy as a way of life – it’s something the younger generation has grown up with, and it’s ingrained in the way they think.  I don’t agree with that.  I’m not the same person I was when I was twenty, and I like to think it’s for the better.  Our goal is to have an honest and open dialogue with USC students, as well as other college students.  From there they can make up their own minds, but at least we helped give them all the facts first.”

 

USC is the most recent stop in jessica drake’s tour of college campuses, speaking on topics relating to the modernization of sex education.  In February, drake was a featured speaker at UCLA, participating on a panel titled, “Porn, Prostitution, and Censorship: The Politics of Empowerment,” where she discussed the power dynamics of sex work and the censorship of the female body.

 

In addition, drake visited University of Chicago’s Sex Week to share how her experiences in the adult industry motivated her to differentiate real sex from reel sex.  Nate Glass joined drake for a second seminar at U-Chicago to present “The Piracy of Sex.”

 

Tech blog BetaBeat.com recently featured “The Piracy of Sex” series by interviewing its presenters.  In the interview, jessica drake shared her first experience with piracy: “Things changed for me when I saw one of the biggest movies that [I’d made so far], Fallen, [had been pirated].  I found Fallen online on a tube site pretty much right after it was released, and it was such a personal feeling for me all the way back then.  I didn’t know a lot of about piracy back then, but it felt like theft, like a violation.”

 

“Something I tried to hammer home at University of Chicago [is] consent,” stated Glass in the BetaBeat.com interview.  “It’s a buzzword for sex positive cultures about making sure in your relationship you have consent, which I’m all for.  When somebody takes jessica’s movie and uploads it to a tube site, that’s a violation of her consent.”

 

About jessica drake:

Karma can mean many things to many people, but for jessica drake, it has always meant an abundance of success and concern for others. Her beauty frames a prodigious talent that has earned her AVN’s coveted Best Actress award three times. An exclusive Wicked Pictures contract performer, writer, and director, as well as a global humanitarian and emerging sexual wellness authority, jessica’s brilliant career continues to move forward with ambitious adult productions like Brad Armstrong’s “Underworld” and instructional releases for “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex.” In the popular series, jessica brings erotic topics to life through intimate demonstrations performed by some of today’s hottest adult stars. Each volume addresses different aspects of human sexuality explored with a distinct blend of knowledge, experience, and good humor, which is refreshing for the sexual self-help genre. The series’ volume on ‘Fellatio’ earned AVN’s 2012 Best Educational Release award, ‘Anal’ was named XBIZ’s 2012 Specialty Release of the Year, and ‘Anal Play for Men’ received AVN’s 2014 Best Educational Release award. The same demand for her modern sex education DVDs also takes jessica around the world, presenting seminars and workshops at expos, retail outlets, and colleges, like UCLA, University of Chicago, and University of California – Santa Barbara, where she speaks to curious adults desiring to learn more about sex, romance, and communication.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nate Glass Presents ‘The Piracy of Sex’ at University of Chicago’s 2014 Sex Week

Takedown Piracy’s Owner Teams with Wicked Pictures Contract Star jessica drake to Educate UC Students on Piracy in the Adult Industry!

February 6, 2014 — CHICAGO, IL — Anti-digital piracy expert Nate Glass will be a featured speaker at University of Chicago’s 2014 Sex Week.

In “The Piracy of Sex,” Nate Glass and jessica drake will explore how the problem of digital piracy is even more prevalent with sexual content. While the autonomy of the Internet helps generate a larger audience, including women, for porn, fetish videos, and live sex shows, it also allows people to hide behind aliases and justify their actions. The stigmas still surrounding sexuality contribute to the rampant pirating, as do performers’ lack of funds and resources. Glass and drake discuss the effect of piracy on sex workers and adult entertainment producers and how they can fight back and protect their copyrights.

“We are thrilled to have Nate Glass and jessica drake come speak for us, and on our first full day of the week too,” says UChicago Sex Week Co-Founder and two-time Co-Director Stephanie Grach. “Our team was very interested in Nate right off the bat because of his work with piracy in the porn industry.

Attending students and other community members are invited to hear the background and accepted perceptions of a variety of groups, and to explore them artistically, intellectually, and with an open-mind. Through Sex Week at UChicago, the Co-Founders hope attendees develop an appreciation and understanding for the blurred boundaries and politics surrounding the topic of sex.

Grach states, “With Sex Week at UChicago, we like to look at sex from every angle — arts and literature, philosophy, religious / secular, mass media, politics, abstinence, logistics and safety, and stereotypes / definitions. We like this to be an exploration and discussion of an usually taboo subject, thinking about the terms and images we use, how we express ourselves, and interactions with others, as well as our own personal sexual preferences and choices.”

Glass, an Illinois native, says, “It is a huge honor to be asked to speak at University of Chicago, one of the world’s top academic establishments and the birthplace of nuclear physics. jessica and I look forward to introducing students to our industries and expertise. The topics of piracy, porn, and sex are often treated as taboo subjects, but we aim to shed light on each, as well as the ways they are related.”

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.

Takedown Piracy’s NEMESIS™ Continues to Wreak Havoc on Tube Sites

Takedown Piracy’s NEMESIS™ Continues to Wreak Havoc on Tube Sites

Untitled-1 

Content Producers Like Evil Angel Video Note Drastic Decrease in Pirated Movies on Tube Sites Due to New Custom Tool!

December 23, 2013 — CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Visitors to popular porn tube sites are noticing a sharp decrease in full-length movies and scenes, as Takedown Piracy’s Nemesis™ continues to wreak havoc on content pirates.  An exclusive custom tool unveiled by Takedown Piracy in July 2013, Nemesis has already removed over 40,000 counts of tube piracy.

 

“While Nemesis is only one of the ways we are targeting piracy, I’m happy to report it has quickly become one of our most effective,” states Takedown Piracy owner Nate Glass.  “In only a few short months, Nemesis has left a large footprint in the piracy world, accounting for over 30% of our total removal of more than 128,000 infringing tube videos.”

 

Since Takedown Piracy began implementing the Nemesis program, leading porn tube sites have witnessed a corresponding drop in traffic.  PornHub.com is down over 1.47 million unique visitors per month since July.  Traffic at RedTube.com has dropped over 1.29 million unique visitors, while Tube8.com decreased by over 401,000 unique visitors (numbers courtesy of Compete.com).

 

Pirates upset at Takedown Piracy’s effectiveness have even taken to forums to complain about the company.  “I get angry when I spend 4 or 5 hours to upload something and in less than 10 minutes [it] is deleted,” posted one pirate.  “Does anyone know a way to avoid Nate Glass bringing down my videos?  3 of my own are about to be deleted.  I hate this guy.  I have strict rules, and he is still able to find them,” complained another content thief.

 

Takedown Piracy’s clients are noticing the difference too.  Evil Angel CEO Christian Mann says, “Evil Angel has been employing the services of Takedown Piracy for three years.  We release as many as twenty titles per month, which means there are 100 new scenes for tubes and file sharing sites to steal.  The popularity of our brand and our directors makes our studio one of the most sought after targets for pirates.  This is a serious matter.  Pirates aren’t just stealing our property, they are stealing our entire business.  For this purpose, we had to employ every means to combat the problem, which includes the best DMCA solution available.  Nate Glass’ relentless searching is unparalleled.  He ferrets them out.  Nate is responsible for over 33,000 removals of Evil Angel tube videos.”

 

Companies like Evil Angel Video are actually being uploaded less as a result – “Well, guess what?  Since we last spoke, that four-eyed douchebag [Nate Glass] has already removed the Evil Angel video I uploaded, so yeah, that’s it, no more Evil Angel uploads from me,” wrote one huge offender.

 

Glass retorts, “It’s always nice to hear from my fans, though since I’ve switched to contacts, I suppose I’m now a two-eyed douchebag.”

 

Nemesis is named after the Greek goddess heralded as an agent of divine punishment for wrongdoing or hubris. The Nemesis tool analyzes tube sites to pinpoint videos likely to be infringing on copyrights, so the Takedown Piracy team is able to verify the infringement and have the pirated content removed.

 

For more information about Nemesis, visit http://takedownpiracy.com/2013/07/nemesis-pr/.

 

In addition to Nemesis, Takedown Piracy developed custom tools the Aikido Program™ and Aikido 2.0, as well as its advanced SEO program, Search Clean™. Aikido 2.0 uses a PHP script to exploit large piracy aggregation sites. It takes sites meant to assist illegal downloads and transforms them into valuable assets in anti-piracy. True to its martial art namesake, the Aikido Program uses the strength of its opponent to its own advantage. Search Clean is responsible for eliminating infringements from even the largest search engines, like Google. The tools and programs remove hundreds of thousands of copyright infringements at an incredible speed.

About Takedown Piracy:

Takedown Piracy (TDP) is an anti-piracy service started in April of 2009.  The service was founded by 14-year entertainment industry veteran Nate Glass.  TDP offers copyright holders an affordable and highly effective means to fight back against content thieves.  For less than the cost of a part-time, minimum wage worker, copyright holders can benefit from Glass’ expertise and passion for protecting copyrighted content from thieves.  To date, TDP has removed over 22 million content infringements.  Leading piracy websites are closely monitored to always provide clients with immediate service and protection.  Every month detailed reports are provided to clients with each action taken on their behalf.  A price can’t be placed on trust, but with Takedown Piracy, clients can be sure the company has their best interest in mind 100% of the time.  For more information, visit www.TakedownPiracy.com or www.Twitter.com/TakedownPiracy

Piracy stats updated

We’ve posted our updated stats on the /stats page so head on over and check that out.

Also, we’re working on releasing a lot of stats that show which sites we’ve had to remove the most from.  Thinking of doing a Top 10 for each type of infringement.  So stay tuned for that.

It’s been a great month, new clients have came on board and we’re rolling out new programs almost weekly now.

A big thanks to all our supporters, we couldn’t do it without you!
