As we know, I do not repost press releases… except that I’m going to repost a press release right now (Hank Fontaine has inspired me to argue with myself – meh!!).
I am not a fan of the internet piracy of adult content in any way, shape, or form. I have commented on the badness of tube sites, commended the creative efforts of others to combat piracy, and even interviewed one of the greatest fighters of the good fight ever – Nate Glass.
Nate Glass is the founder to Takedown Piracy, a/n service/organization that works to get pirated content removed from the interwebs via the systematic issuance of DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 1998) notices.
Nate and Takedown Piracy have recently introduced a new tool to help get all us citizens more involved in taking down piracy – a tip page!! This new tool is so simple and too awesome to ignore – read on!! (quoted directly from a press release; not at all written by me):
“Takedown Piracy Introduces Tip Page to Report Copyright Infringements
Fans of Movies, Books, Music & More Have the Opportunity to Support Their Favorite Artists by Fighting Piracy!
June 13, 2011 — MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — Today Takedown Piracy (TDP) introduces its tip page for Internet users to report copyright infringements.Â Â Believing the best way to combat piracy is through educating and working with consumers, Takedown Piracyâ€™s tip page allows fans of movies, books and music to directly support their favorite artists.Â Â Millions of additional eyes provide Takedown Piracy with an army seeking out illegal downloads on torrent, tube and cyberlocker sites.Â Â Users are asked to report the copyright owner and a link to the infringement.Â Â There is also an option to report the good deed to Twitter followers.
Takedown Piracy owner Nate Glass says, ‘I am extremely excited to launch the tip page.Â Â It allows everyone to join in the fight against piracy.Â Â While Takedown Piracy has developed tools like the Aikido Program capable of removing hundreds of thousands of infringements in a day, it is important to combat illegal downloads from all angles.Â Â The tip page gives fans the opportunity to be a hero and protect their favorite artistâ€™s material.’

While Glass started Takedown Piracy two years ago, it wasnâ€™t until November 2010 he was able to turn it into a full-time venture.Â Â Since then, the DMCA notices sent out on any one of TDPâ€™s clients increased by 400% monthly.Â Â Glass restructured and enhanced TDP to increase performance, activity and awareness.Â Â TDP monitors leading piracy culprits, providing clients with monthly breakdowns on its success.Â Â As the company grows, so does its resources and resolve to protect clientsâ€™ content.Â Â To date, TDP has removed over 3 million copyright infringements for its clients.

Takedown Piracy actively tracks at least nine different ways content may be pirated, providing widespread coverage.Â Â 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, Social Media.
