Artists’ Bill of Rights Campaign Manager Gordon Harrison states, “Artists’ Bill of Rights is a campaigning organization promoting respect for the rights of artists; we are delighted to promote the Takedown Piracy service founded by Nate Glass.  The work it is doing to defend its clients from the scourge of piracy is vital.  We are particularly impressed in Takedown Piracy’s use of the power of technology to protect its clients, such as its Aikido program, which discovers pirated copies of clients’ works and issue takedown notices to the sites hosting them.  We wish them continued success in this important task.”

“Everything we do is about protecting people’s artistic property,” says Nate Glass.  “The Artists’ Bill of Rights campaign has the same goals.  They work to achieve a stop to piracy through education of the masses, while we try to stop piracy at the source.  By supporting each other, we are able to cover all our bases and greatly reduce digital content theft.”
