Protect Content Against Piracy

What is Piracy?

In a nutshell, piracy is defined as the illicit use or reproduction of someone else’s work. This could be computer programs, books, music, and films. Cheap bandwidth, technological innovation, and affordable devices are some of the key factors responsible for rampant piracy. In short, watching and sharing content without the permission of the content creator is no different from any other theft. Whether you copied the copyrighted material from a friend, downloaded it from a legit-looking website, or purchased it from a person selling the copied copies – that still equals stealing.

As a result of piracy, both content producers and customers likewise are placed at a disadvantageous position. Additionally, gullible customers are exposed to potential security threats while accessing pirated content.

Sadly, content creators are robbed of their legitimate rights to earn from the ingenuity and labor that they invest into creating awesome content that everyone enjoys.
