FSC has partnered with Porn-Guardian to expand services provided in its Anti-Piracy Action Program (APAP).
“From the beginning, FSC’s Anti-Piracy Action Program has concentrated on providing a comprehensive plan that is user-friendly and adaptive to the needs of the content provider. In 2010, we successfully focused on a strategy that targeted tubesites,” FSC Executive Director Diane Duke. “We have had incredible success in that endeavor and now we are increasing our attack on piracy to include P2P infringements.”
In 2010, APAP developed and implemented a system that effectively deals with tube sites. In 2011, FSC will add the services of Porn Guardian in order to expand the types of piracy the program addresses.
Porn Guardian combines technology and human review to identify and remove infringement from file-trading locations including cyberlockers, such as Rapidshare, FileMonster, and MegaUpload and many others; link-trading sites such as Yahoo groups, user groups, linking sites and blogs; and P2P environments such as BitTorrent and eDonkey.
“We are thrilled by the expanded suite of services this partnership will provide to clients,” Porn Guardian’s Peter Phinney said. “With Porn Guardian’s expertise in peer-to-peer sharing and cyberlocker up-and-downloads, bundled with APAP’s extraordinarily effective solution to the unique problem of tube sites, clients now are protected against every major current piracy problem and also positioned to deal with emerging technologies we see evolving on the horizon.”
Representatives from both FSC APAP and Porn Guardian will attend the upcoming Content Protection Retreat hosted by Pink Visual, to be held February 6-7, at the Sofitel Hotel located in Beverly Hills, CA.
“We are thrilled to be working with Porn Guardian their services and approach will work well with the program we have already established,” Duke added.
Porn Guardian’s Dominic Ford said, “Porn Guardian is the industry’s best defense against cyberlockers, and APAP is the best solution for combating tube sites. Combined, FSC now has a total solution for its members. We are thrilled to be working with the Free Speech Coalition and look forward to helping the industry in this fight against piracy.”
