Solutions for content owners
"Help! Our latest movie is available for free on BitTorrent!"
"Thousands of our files are freely available on P2P networks - what can we do???"
"We discovered a cracked version of our Office software tools on a P2P network - is there anything we can do to reduce illegal distribution?"
You're browsing a web site, or researching content available on a P2P application, and you find a ripped copy of your valuable content freely available on that network. What can you do?
Well, if you found your content available on a web site or web site based search engine, then you’d probably take the time to draft a sternly worded letter to them, asking them to kindly remove such-and-such file from their web site or search engine. If you’re lucky, and if the web site or search engine is in a jurisdiction where such take-down letters matter to them, then they may go ahead and remove that link to your file.
Now Google’s search engine indexes about 8 billion web pages, so you may need to repeat the above letter-drafting exercise a lot - and you’ve probably got better things to do with your time.
On the other hand, if you discovered your content on FastTrack, Gnutella, eDonkey, etc. then, short of suing the creator of each P2P application that connects to that network, there’s very little you can do to remove your valuable content from those networks.
By partnering with web sites, search engines and P2P application developers, Global File Registry makes it substantially easier, less time consuming and, well, just plain possible, to get your content removed from those web sites and P2P networks.
Instead of writing to each web site or P2P application owner separately, you simply log into a single central location - the Global File Registry web site - and issue instructions to remove particular files from a given web site, search engine or P2P network that enables Global File Registry software to take content down.
Our servers have a direct relationship with each web site, search engine and P2P client application supported by Global File Registry, so you simply need to enter your content’s unique identifier into your Global File Registry content entry page, and within 48 hours (usually much sooner), and with no further intervention needed by you, those files are filtered or removed from supported networks.
Even better, instead of simply removing infringing copies of files, Global File Registry in many cases has the capability of replacing the infringing version with a DRM-protected licensed copy. Users downloading that DRM-protected version need to buy a license to play it. The revenue from that sale is shared with you, us, and the operator of that web site, search engine or web site. It’s a win for everyone.
