Experience Media launches anti-digital piracy tool just for indie film and content producers

Big Media like Viacom may have a hair-trigger when it comes to online piracy, but independent film and content producers need protection against digital piracy too. Experience Media Studios (EMS) has launched a new service to provide just that.

The company's cloud-based anti-piracy service is specifically designed to help protect the creative content of independent filmmakers, distributors, producers, authors, publishers, musicians and artists, who feel the impact of piracy substantially more than major media conglomerates, EMS noted. Its platform monitors, detects, and eliminates pirated content across any number of specified online distribution and promotional channels.

EMS actively updates a database spanning the international spectrum of sites to monitor round-the-clock for pirated intellectual property such as movies, music, eBooks, articles, photos, video and software. The service then works on behalf of these content creators to remove pirated digital content from the Internet and catalogue forensic evidence for legal action.

"In working through the recent release of the Forger, we recognized a need in the marketplace for a piracy protection service for independent producers, distributors and sales agents who do not have the internal capabilities or resources that major studios use to combat Internet piracy," said Michael-Ryan Fletchall, CEO of Experience Media Studios. "When we successfully eradicated digital piracy on our own film, we realised the potential and benefit to all content creators and distributors, not just the movie industry."

The platform scours P2P networks, cyberlockers, streaming sites, auctions, blogs, exchanges and forums, and short-circuits promotional activity on search engines, Websites and social media channels that attempts to drive traffic to pirated content.

"Targeting the promotional activity allows our clients to receive the visibility they deserve without competing with piracy sites for traffic to their own content," said Fletchall.
