Takedown Piracy Removes 1.6 Million Infringements
Owner Nate Glass restructures TDP to increase performance, activity and awareness
MARINA DEL REY, Calif.—Piracy is one of the top issues hurting the adult industry, and each day more torrent, tube and cyberlocker sites launch with stolen content. With more than 1.6 million content infringements removed, Takedown Piracy (TDP) is providing the adult industry with a way to fight back by offering copyright holders an affordable and highly effective means to wage war against these thieves.
Owner Nate Glass, a 13-year veteran in the adult industry, started TDP in 2009, while working for Hush Hush Entertainment and Shane’s World. Since leaving Hush Hush in November 2010, Glass has restructured and enhanced the service to increase performance, activity and awareness.
“Since making Takedown Piracy my sole venture, the DMCA notices sent out on any one of my clients has increased by 400 percent monthly,” Glass said. “I am now able to focus entirely on piracy and combat it with a multi-faceted approach. TDP monitors over 200 of the leading piracy culprits, providing clients with monthly breakdowns on our success. As our company grows, so do our resources and resolve to protect our clients’ content.”
More than 50 of the adult industry’s leading studios utilize Takedown Piracy, including Adam & Eve, Wicked Pictures, New Sensations, Hush Hush Entertainment and Girlfriends Films.
“Takedown Piracy often has our pirated content removed before we even know it was stolen,” said Girlfriends Films Vice President Moose. “They are available any time of day we need them, and if we notify them of an infringement, it’s handled in a matter of hours. Nate goes right to the source of the piracy on our behalf, not wasting time on end-user litigation. We don’t want to punish those interested in watching a Girlfriends Films movie. Going after the uploaders ensures our movies are obtained the legal way.”
Andrew S., owner of Hush Hush Entertainment, added, “Takedown Piracy is worth every cent I pay them to protect our content; actually, it would be worth it paying twice as much. With piracy on the rise, it’s even more important for studios to invest in counter measures, and there is no one better than Takedown Piracy’s Nate Glass. His DMCA results continue to grow exponentially each month, which in turn, is great for our bottom line.”
Takedown Piracy actively tracks at least nine different ways content may be pirated, and 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 social media.
