Professionals creating information, inventing new products, publishing new books or courses, and producing new music do not always have the technical knowledge to protect their property. Their talents and skills lie elsewhere.
Protect Original Work on the Internet
Information vendors is a term used for any professional, freelancer, fitness coach, photographer, lawyer, author, or anyone else who produces creative and intellectual property offered for sale online. Original work is protected by copyright infringements even on the internet. In 1998 the digital millennium copyright act (DMCA) was passed for this reason. There are a few issues with enforcing DMCA.
The first is that copyright infringement and theft are difficult to detect. Online criminals are clever and hide links within the material. This leads potential customers to the false link to purchase a course, video, photographs, or any other information at a discount. Every time that happens, the person who developed the intellectual property is losing money.
Customers are not aware they are taking money away from the creator. The original website will lose revenue but may have no idea why. Criminals are getting rich because their websites originate outside the US. Many companies that offer services fail to find where the website is operating.
Talents and Skills
Professionals creating information, inventing new products, publishing new books or courses, and producing new music do not always have the technical knowledge to protect their property. Their talents and skills lie elsewhere. This is why there are companies that offer DMCA services to protect property and revenue. Artists can create and a takedownczar can provide protection services.
Dedicated Piracy Protection
One company provides innovative services dedicated to information vendors of any size who do business online. The approach is a combination of a proprietary Enforcer protection platform and a takedownczar to detect and remove sites that are cheating people out of income, damaging or copying the brand, and infringing on copyright laws.
A free consultation is offered to clients so the company can determine the condition of the website, discover where weak spots exist, and formulate a plan of managed service. Solutions are not cookie-cutter methods designed to fit every situation. Services are customized to ensure that no one is benefitting from your information except you. That can mean trademark protection, guarding the launch of a new product, removing links placed on the site by criminals, or doing damage control for a sullied reputation.
