See how it works

Our Guardian solution uses publisher-provided metadata to detect and validate full, infringing copies of protected content on cyberlockers, peer-to-peer networks, and other offending sites. A two-step human-review process sets the solution apart from other anti-piracy providers and assures a near-zero false positive rate. Non-compliant filesharing sites are addressed through our aggressive, tiered enforcement system.

Who’s to Blame?

Pirates distribute content through cyberlockers, peer-to-peer networks, and other offending sites.

Piracy Ecosystem

What’s the Solution?

When Digimarc finds illicit copies of protected works, enforcement takes place through tiered escalation measures, which include: DMCA notices to offending sites, search engine de-listing, and higher escalation tactics reserved for non-responsive sites.
