"When it comes to book piracy, you can't prevent what you can't predict. This is the challenge for publishers as they grapple with preventing illegal piracy," said Devon Weston, director, market development, Digimarc Guardian. "Our new Nielsen data makes it clear these pirates don't fit a typical criminal profile. They access digital content from a vast universe of web pages, social platforms and file sharing portals. Our aim is to break down the problem for publishers and help them develop an effective prevention strategy."
Digimarc's Guardian content protection service offers publishers an end-to-end digital piracy solution that discovers and verifies pirated content, de-lists the content on search engines and then reports actions-taken within a convenient customer portal. The solution helps enterprise-level rights holders, such as publishers, demonstrate their commitment to authors by providing detailed visibility into individual-work level piracy and protection, and by allowing the content creators to self-report suspected violations.
The Digimarc Guardian team will be attending The London Book Fair, March 14-16 at Booth #3B100. To download a copy of the study, please visit www.digimarc.com/resources/ebook-piracy-study.
