Apps and piracy

We all live our daily lives through the Internet which connects us to content and information via a plethora of devices. Apps are now the main way we interface with technology, allowing us to connect with each other, to monitor our health and wellbeing and to experience and consume content

But as technology has developed so have the criminals behind online piracy and some apps now provide access to infringing content, such as films, TV shows, live sports, music and games.

We have extensive experience in investigating apps that steal content and distribute it to global audiences. We take action against app developers to protect content creators and owners and we also disrupt the ability of the criminals running the apps to operate by taking down hosting, payment and social media channels.
