NEW YORK, April 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With an estimated two out of every five photos, images, articles, blogposts or even songs being downloaded and used illegally, courts worldwide are inundated with infringement cases. Yet the Internet itself can provide digital protection from copyright theft using a protocol already built in to every computer, tablet and smartphone in existence.
Founded in 2008, intelLoc.com is a copyright registration system that allows its members to instantly create an international copyright in 168 countries. The company was established after musician and founder of the company became victim of a copyright theft and lost some $220,000. Due to the massive increase in both copyright infringement and online businesses now being targeted, the one-click copyrighting system has been adapted to meet the needs of online entrepreneurs.
Founder Norm MacLeod says, "Not only creatives like writers, composers and artists are being targeted by copyright infringement; entrepreneurs on Amazon, Merch, Etsy, eBay and so on are increasingly victims of copyright theft." He reveals that his lawyer inadvertently gave him the idea of using the Internet to create the system. "We discovered a protocol built into every computer that we could adapt to prove, using just our website and some coding, the exact second a piece of copyrighted material was sent to our partner Amazon S3 databases.
"When one of our members uploads the work, they receive an instant, digital verification that details the exact second their material was registered. It takes literally seconds and follows the rules laid down by the Berne Convention, in much the same way as the USPTO, the US Copyright Office. It adds an extra, immediate layer of protection to our members' copyrights and they can register their copyrights with the USPTO too, should they wish, so there's no legal conflict at all, just added security. We think of it as a 'belt and braces' technique."
A full 'test drive' of the copyrighting website, along with three copyrights, is currently free to new members at intelLoc.com
