Protecting your work through Rightscorp involves a multi-step process that begins with scanning and detection of piracy on peer-to-peer networks. Rightscorp will ingest your copyrights, verify the existence of torrents, and provide reports to the owner. This scanning and detection process is essential for generating notices and potential litigation in the future.
Once piracy has been detected, Rightscorp can provide termination notices to internet providers for their users who are infringing on copyrighted works. These notices serve as legal notification to internet providers of infringing activity from their customers. Additionally, Rightscorp has established a Notice Settlement Model, which includes a 50/50 split for any amounts received, and ISPs will have the responsibility to forward our notices in adherence to DMCA requirements for termination of repeat infringement activity.
Rightscorp also offers a Litigation Model, which is customizable based on the range of copyrights held in the data base. Successful litigation precedents have already been set by Rightscorp, and parameters of infringement within the data base can be tailored to your specific needs. Rightscorp’s fee for this service is proportional to the scope of the complaint.
Overall, protecting your work with Rightscorp provides peace of mind knowing that your copyrighted content is being monitored and protected beyond a simple takedown notice. Piracy is a growing problem, and Rightscorp offers a tangible path to protection for content owners and creators.
