MarkMonitor AntiPiracy

Shut down the online distribution and promotion of pirated digital content

Global piracy affects a wide-range of digital content—movies, music, software, games and e-books. Rights owners must take a proactive and comprehensive approach to fighting online piracy, by pinpointing and monitoring illegal download activity across a wide-array of Internet channels—peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, user generated content, blogs, live and video streaming sites and usenet services—as well as detecting and disrupting the related promotional activity on search engines, websites and social media sites.

Our anti-piracy technology powers the industry's most complete solution for monitoring, detecting and responding to piracy and related promotional activities.

As losses mount, affected industries have less to invest in future releases. And those future releases in turn are threatened by revenue loss from pre-release leaks.

    The answer? Monitor, detect and enforce—across as many online distribution and promotional channels as possible to shut down pirated digital goods, wherever they appear.
