LOS ANGELES (June 26, 2015) — Takedown Piracy and its new digital fingerprinting technology are featured in a recent article on MensHealth.com, which was reposted on the homepage of NYPost.com in its entirety. Titled “A World Without Free Porn,” the article from sociologist Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals explores digital piracy of adult content and how Takedown Piracy is making a dramatic difference.

“Long story short, if you’ve visited a tube site, you’ve viewed pirated material,” wrote Dr. Chauntelle in the article. “But what would happen if all this free stuff just disappeared? What if porn on the Internet was… no longer free?”
“It may seem laughable, but there’s a program out there working to do just that. It’s the brainchild of Takedown Piracy,” continued Dr. Chauntelle.
Earlier in 2015, Takedown Piracy began utilizing its new digital fingerprinting program as an application in its revered Nemesis™ custom tool. In five months, the program is responsible for removing over 140,000 pirated scenes and movies from tube sites, and the numbers continue to grow exponentially each month.
“At the rate the digital fingerprinting program is working to identify pirated scenes, those accustomed to watching free porn are going to be stuck with old or low quality content,” said Takedown Piracy owner Nate Glass. “Will that result in more people paying for their porn, like has happened the past decade with music and iTunes? I don’t know, but I do know many sites offer affordable and easy ways to watch high quality adult content for people to turn to.”
Many of the industry’s major players have signed on to be among the first utilizing the revolutionary program to safeguard content from piracy tube sites. “Each week more studios are hearing about our results and signing on to have Nemesis safeguard their content,” added Glass. “I’m certainly looking forward to a possible future without free porn.”
Early implementation of the digital fingerprinting program has already allowed Takedown Piracy to verify the accuracy of the digital fingerprints by identifying the copyright holder of hundreds of thousands of videos violating copyright laws on tube sites. Combined with Nemesis, which analyzes tube sites to pinpoint videos likely to be infringing on copyrights, the program virtually assures pirated material will be found and reported.
Available to all content creators, including DVD producers, pay sites, and webcam sites, the digital fingerprinting program is a separate service Takedown Piracy is offering its current and future clients. For a nominal extra charge on top of Takedown Piracy’s standard services, companies can track all their content.
Takedown Piracy currently has the program set up to be implemented on 60 websites, with over three-dozen more in the works. These are all actual source tube sites – no embedding sites.
The program is designed solely for detection and removal of infringing content from tube sites and search engines, like Google.
Takedown Piracy actively tracks at least nine different ways content may be pirated, providing widespread coverage. Takedown Piracy’s army of servers offer protection in the following areas: Cyberlocker sites like Rapidshare, Torrent sites, Tube sites, Auctioned or unauthorized DVD resellers, Search Engines, Image Hosts, Blogs, Forums, Social Media.
