Porn Tube Piracy Has a New Nemesis with ‘Takedown Piracy’

Piracy of adult content has a new, rather formidable enemy. Utilizing digital fingerprinting technology, the anti-piracy service Takedown Piracy, now enlisted by a number of adult media distributors, is working to eradicate as much piracy as possible. In the past four months alone, over 110,000 videos have been removed from tube sites, according to a recent PR release.

The new software is part of the well known anti-piracy program, known as Nemesis – science fiction branding, definitely a nice touch – a custom tool that has and continues to be a powerful defense system against internet brigands filling the net with illegal video content.

Takedown Piracy’s new program allows them to identify and verify copyright infringements according to copyright laws. This software, coupled with Nemesis, hones in on videos that are likely published online against copyright regulations, especially zeroing in tube sites, often the culprits of infringing content.

The program, made to find and remove content in breach of copyright law from tube sites and search engines, is currently to be implemented on 60 sites, and more are flocking to utilize such a service. Online piracy techniques, such as Rapidshare, tube sites, and torrent sites, all fall under Takedown Piracy’s jurisdiction.

An adult entertainment studio head was quoted saying, “This is a complete game-changer for the adult industry’s fight against piracy. Takedown Piracy is once again taking the fight directly to the tube sites, and they’re not going to know what hit them!” 

Nate Glass, the owner of Takedown Piracy, said, “to see my colleagues in the industry match my enthusiasm for what this fingerprinting service means to the industry is truly humbling. Cooperation is key in the war against piracy, and as an industry working together, we can truly make a difference.

In support of Takedown Piracy, sociologist Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals, author of Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment, said, “Our wider culture continues to disregard the adult industry as a marginalized ‘other,’ partly because it devalues its product. Though the industry is (and must be) in a constant state of evolution, one that corresponds with evolutions occurring in wider society, Takedown Piracy’s digital fingerprinting process will help prevent further de-evolutions into unabated thievery.”

I had the chance to briefly chat with Tibbals about the ramifications of Takedown Piracy and Nemesis cutting a swath through tube sites’ acquisition of patent infringing content. On the issue of piracy, Tibbals said, “If piracy weren’t as rampant an issue, I think the adult entertainment industry would still be in a state of evolution (as it basically always has been). Piracy contributes to the continued marginalization of porn – though there are other factors involved, piracy has fed almost single-handedly the wider cultural notion that porn is a throwaway product, something that’s not worth paying for. If piracy were eradicated, the adult industry would be in a less devalued space.

“I can only begin to speculate,” she remarked about the possible future of an industry with less piracy, “but a society that has to pay for its porn may also become a society that’s shaped by a smaller measure of sexual shame than ours currently is. There is something legitimating about paying for any product or service. Though this wouldn’t work for everyone, I can imagine a world that pays for its porn would take its sexual expression more seriously.”

Nate Glass founded the service in April of 2009, and has been the bane of over 56 million content violations across the Internet. Takedown Piracy’s programs are cost effective and brutally efficient, definitely a force the adult industry can count on to aid in the ongoing battle with piracy.
