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.

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.

Takedown Piracy celebrates three year anniversary

CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Takedown Piracy is proud to celebrate its 3-year anniversary combatting piracy.  Created by Nate Glass in 2009, Takedown Piracy is known for its highly effective and affordable services, while always operating with the utmost integrity.  Whether harnessing the power of its one-of-a-kind Aikido Program or following up on an individual file reported through its free piracy tip page, Takedown Piracy has been responsible for the removal of over 6.5 million copyright infringements.

For more information about Takedown Piracy, visit HERE.

During its 3-years, Takedown Piracy has made customer service a priority.  Clients are continually provided with detailed reports on all removed copyright infringements, while having the ability to contact Takedown Piracy 16 hours a day.  As a result, Takedown Piracy has an exemplary retention rate.

A client of Takedown Piracy for 2 years, pro wrestler Colt Cabana states, “I’m forever indebted to Takedown Piracy!  Only 3 days after I put out my completely independent movie, word was out it had hit the torrent sites, YouTube, and more.  After funding the whole project myself, this was a scary thought.  This is when Takedown Piracy came in and saved the day (and maybe my life).  Weeks later I had known Internet pirates telling me they couldn’t find my movie anywhere—it was such a great feeling.  I can’t speak more highly about Nate and Takedown Piracy.  They’re really helping the little guy fight the good fight.”

Indie DVD distributor Blue Underground, Inc. has been protected by Takedown Piracy for over a year.  President Willian Lustig says, “Takedown Piracy has opened my eyes to the pervasive, ugly, digital-age underbelly of Internet piracy.  I’m sure Takedown Piracy’s tenacious copyright notice campaign on behalf of Blue Underground has given some pirates pause before going through the effort of posting my company’s copyrighted properties.”

Takedown Piracy also safeguards the digital content of lesbian erotica producer Girlfriends Films.  Vice President Moose says, “It is impossible to predict how much money we would lose if pirates were allowed to steal our movies unchecked, but thanks to Takedown Piracy, we’ll never have to know.  Even as pirates find new and faster ways to upload our content, Nate and his team are right there removing it before we lose sales.  While the mainstream music and movie industries wait around for the government to intervene in matters of copyright infringement, we are taking the fight right to the pirates with Takedown Piracy.  It is the best, and we are lucky to have its protection.”

“Nate does an amazing job in his ongoing battle with removing stolen content from the internet,” adds actress and adult performer Tanya Tate.  “Without people like Nate continuously and tirelessly protecting the intellectual property of performers and companies, new entertainment would be unfeasible to create.  As a director, performer and producer, I personally want to thank Nate for his work and keeping a proactive watch on my website, TanyaTate.com.  I wholeheartedly recommend using the services of Takedown Piracy to any creator who is concerned about their content.”

Each month, Takedown Piracy’s Nate Glass educates readers of AVN Magazine and AVN.com with insightful business news and expert advice regarding digital content protection.  AVN Managing Editor Steve Javors says, “Congrats to Nate Glass and Takedown Piracy on three years of serving the industry.  It was because of Nate’s ‘boots-on-the-ground’ experience battling piracy that I wanted him to write a column for AVN.  Every month, he provides an insider’s view of the scourge of content creators everywhere.  His columns are informative and really have become a must-read.  Cheers to you, Nate, and here’s to many more years of Takedown Piracy.”

Moved by the support of his clients, Nate Glass says, “From the beginning I knew Takedown Piracy was so much more than a job.  It was a mission.  I believe every single one of my clients has the right to protect their art and content.  Pirates feel entitled to take whatever they want online, but if that mentality goes unchecked, we will see a staggering decrease in the amount of music, movies, and books created.  With the discovery and elimination of each new copyright infringement, and the destruction of torrent and cyberlocker sites, Takedown Piracy is determined to prevent that from happening.”

Takedown Piracy and Nate Glass continue to be in the media spotlight for their renowned effectiveness fighting piracy.  Featured on CNBC.com, TechDirt.com, The Daily.com, the 1709 Blog, and more, word is spreading about the small but mighty company, and its David versus Goliath story.

TakedownPiracy founder profiled on PVVOnline

Recently, Takedown Piracy founder Nate Glass sat down with Dr. Chauntelle of PVVOnline.com for a brief (just kidding) interview that details how Glass got started with  the adult industry, how that got him into anti-piracy and how piracy is affecting the industry.  To read Glass’ story and listen to the interview…mosey on over to Dr. Chauntelle’s website:

http://pvvonline.com/?p=725

The site is really unique in that it features the stories of not only performers in adult, but also those people who work behind the scenes of an industry that’s often misunderstood and misrepresented by the mainstream media.

The interview runs just over 70 minutes and is really good, though we may be a little biased since it’s about us and Dr. Chauntelle is a graduate of UT in Austin, TX.  Hook ’em horns!

Happy Birthday Takedown Piracy!

From AVN.com

MARINA DEL REY, Calif.—Takedown Piracy (TDP) is celebrating its second anniversary, and from the company’s inception on April 5, 2009, until now, TDP has been responsible for over 2.3 million copyright infringements removed.

Thirteen-year adult industry veteran Nate Glass conceived the idea for TDP as he witnessed adult studios struggling to combat online content theft. Lacking the millions of dollars that music studios throw into their anti-piracy campaigns, most studios chose to simply bear the financial loss. Glass therefore decided to create an affordable and effective service brandishing guerrilla tactics against torrent, tube and cyberlocker sites stealing content.

“What an amazing two years it’s been,” Glass remarked. “Takedown Piracy grew from a one-man, part-time operation to a company boasting over 2.3 million removed infringements. None of it would’ve been possible without the loyalty of our clients, and for that I’m eternally grateful.”

While Glass started Takedown Piracy two years ago, it wasn’t until November 2010 that he was able to turn it into a full-time venture. Since then, the DMCA notices sent out for any one of TDP’s clients increased by 400 percent monthly. Glass restructured and enhanced TDP to increase performance, activity and awareness. TDP monitors over 200 of the leading piracy culprits, providing clients with monthly breakdowns on its success. As the company grows, so does its resources and resolve to protect clients’ content.

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

“Congratulations to Nate on the second-year anniversary of Takedown Piracy,” New Sensations owner Scott Taylor lauded. “His character and drive are critical to the company’s success, and nobody combats piracy more efficiently and cost-effectively than him and Takedown Piracy. We will continue to trust in Takedown Piracy for our content protection needs.”

Among the many attributes separating Takedown Piracy from its competitors is its new custom tool, the Aikido Program. 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 in piracy and transforms it into a valuable asset in anti-piracy. True to its martial art namesake, the Aikido Program uses the strength of its opponent to its own advantage.

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; and other social media.
