Q. What is the cost of the Takedown Piracy service?
A. Standard monthly rates vary depending on the size of your content library and the breadth and scope of your piracy problem. Other services often charge anywhere from 5 to 20 times as much. Our system was developed with the goal of minimal costs involved so that we can offer a rate that makes sense for copyright owners both large and small.
Q. Why is your rate so low?
A. Our low rate should send you two messages. One, is that we’re not trying to get rich off your plight. We want to solve this problem and get you back into the business of owning the distribution of your hard work. Secondly, with a low rate like ours, it should be a no-brainer to you as a sound investment in preserving your bottom line.
Q. Do I have to sign up for a long-term contract?
A. No. There is no set number of months you have to be a customer. You can opt out at any time.
Q. How do I know you’re actually doing anything for me?
A. We BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) you (the client) on ALL DMCA notices we send on your behalf. That way you can verify the infringements we’re reporting are real and you can see the volume of work that we are doing for you. In addition to that, once a month we send you a report detailing the total amount of infringements removed on your behalf. That report will have a detailed breakdown showing you the types of infringements we’ve removed for you. We also keep a more detailed spreadsheet available to you upon request, this file can get to be pretty large, so we don’t email it to you by default.
Q. If I or my employees find our content somewhere, can we report that to you and you take care of it?
A. Absolutely, we try to be as prompt as possible in responding to anything you report to us. We know this makes you look good in your fans and customer’s eyes and we love making you look and feel good.
Q. Can you provide me with evidence of my content being infringed?
A. We can provide you with screenshots of the URLs which we’re having removed. However, this is not something that can be done quickly and it can results in 10s of 1000s of screenshots that we have to create and store for you. For this reason, we ask that you only request this option if you are serious about bringing litigation. Not for anecdotal curiousity reasons.
Q. Piracy seems pretty rampant, why even try?
A. Piracy is rampant and can often seem like you’re playing Whack-A-Mole. However, in this case you’re not just hitting the moles with rubber mallets but we’re dropping napalm bombs on the whole field. Part of the success of piracy sites can be attributed to them offering a superior surfing experience for users. As long as copyright owners do nothing, that experience will continue to be superior. We interfere with that experience by introducing frustration to the mix. Whether it’s the site owner frustrated at the amount of time he/she spends on removing content or the frustration the downloader feels at not being able to find free content, frustration is a very valuable tool to use in combating piracy, and we excel at that. While we’re doing our thing, you’re able to adapt your business to the new digital world and have a chance for your new distribution models to flourish. We’re in this for the cause of protecting the content you worked hard to create. Good content deserves good protection at a good price. That’s where we come in.
Q. What have you actually accomplished with all this?
A. In addition to removing over 50 million copyright infringements, several piracy sites now filter out content from our clients. It’s easier for them to just block all the content from select copyright owners than to address DMCAs from us every day.
Q. How long does it take to get everything set up?
A. Just a few hours. We’ll get some information from you regarding your content and add that to our system. You’ll start receiving copies of our DMCAs usually that same day.
