I know that many of my competitors and cohorts in the classic niche and throughout the adult industry have seen some rather radical changes in the way we all do business, especially the crooks. I try my best to follow some of the adult forums and many of us are going through the same things. Yes, I am talking about Tube Sites and Torrent sites. These 2 things have changed the hard goods business forever. While, I must say that I am a bit surprised that some of the companies are just finding out about this stuff now, it has been going on for years, but it has gotten to be like an epidemic, especially over the past year.
I have also become very curious and worried about the Tube Sites and Torrent sites, and I have partnered with an industry whiz, especially when it comes to this stuff. The Tube Sites( TUBE8, PORN TUBE, etc) are certainly a problem, but we do not really find our movies on them. The main culprit, are the Torrent Sites and File Sharing Sites, these are where your fellow users, upload films and they share them online, with anyone and everyone, who has the ability to download. This is where it hurts. We literally send out hundreds of DMCA notices on a weekly basis, and with the exception of a few sites, many comply immediately. But, you must stay on it, because they are back up the next day, from another user. For those of you who are not very familiar with Tube Sites and Torrent Sites and File Sharing Sites, and are not sure what to do about them, feel free to contact my good friend Nate, from Operation Takedown Piracy:
Are you tired of seeing your stuff all over the internet for free? Don’t have the time to try and hunt down your content on every tube site, torrent site and forum out there? That’s where we come in. Join us in Operation : Takedown Piracy. We do all the work. We find your content. We send the takedown notices. You reap the benefits.
Right now the laws have enough loopholes that going after pirates from a legal standpoint is a risky proposition. Most are based overseas and know how to exploit loopholes in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Instead of a risky court battle, we provide a realistic approach to curbing piracy.
We protect your content from it’s street date and on. Protecting it at the beginning is vital to ensuring that it doesn’t get widely spread everywhere online. Our takedowns keep your content elusive and exclusive.
Our staff has an in-depth knowledge of how online piracy works. We understand how the pirates operate and we use that information to interfere with their operation. We frustrate uploaders and influence them to move on to someone else’s content.
We started this program on April 5th of 2009. To date, we have removed over 207,000 links for our partners.
