target_aim.jpgSan Diego – Copyright Enforcement Group (CEG) has announced its plans to launch a comprehensive takedown service targeting websites committing Internet piracy.  The websites that will be the focus of this new service to deter copyright infringement include Rapidshare, Cyberlockers, User Generated Content (UGC), Direct Download, Tube, Streaming, Auction, and other Unauthorized Distributor and/or Reseller Websites by the end of the year. 

The service, called WWW Takedown, will provide the same monitoring and validation processes as CEG’s existing P2P Collect and WWW Collect services.  Under the new service, acts of infringement will be traced and calculated by CEG’s proprietary systems and global network of servers before passing a stringent multi-level validation process involving steps such as fingerprinting and visual human authentication to eliminate false positives.

Automated daily reports will be emailed to copyright owners, who will have access every day of the year to a web-based client portal that will provide statistical information and real-time piracy data.  WWW Takedown will be provided to copyright owners at no charge who submit their entire catalog of copyright titles with CEG exclusively for global monitoring and monetization services.  The service will also be available for a small monthly fee to clients who don’t wish to provide their entire copyright catalog.

The Copyright Enforcement Group (CEG) is the leading provider of intellectual property protection and recovery services.  Its protection and monetization services cover all types of content including audio, video, logo, image, trademark and text across P2P networks, user-generated content sites, and other infringing sites.  CEG’s services are designed to assist intellectual property owners with maximizing content coverage, reduce infringements, and generate revenues that otherwise would have been lost to digital piracy.
