Protecting content during the COVID-19 outbreak

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19 during this extraordinary time. In the current circumstances, the demand for online content is set to increase significantly over the coming weeks. Where there is an increase in content consumption, online piracy is significant.

At FACT we have over three decades of experience in protecting content for rights holders, studios and independent film producers. We understand the value of your content and the vital need to protect it.

FACT operates a bespoke system which monitors a vast number of sources to detect infringing content, including torrent sites and illicit streams. We can also offer early leak detection of new releases and content. We take action against uploaders, using takedown notifications, to ensure that this content is removed.

We have contingency measures in place to allow business to continue and are ready and able to protect your content. Get in touch, we’re here to help.
