IFFOR releases Green Paper on reducing online piracy

Monday, September 17th, 2012

I have just received a copy of a Green Paper released by the International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR) that provides six suggestions on ways online adult companies can help themselves when it comes to reducing and combating online piracy of their adult content. There is no question that online piracy is one of the biggest issues for adult companies, and while some of the suggestions seem like common sense, sometimes it takes a reminder.

The six suggestions are as follows:

1) Register the copyright for your content
2) Watermark or fingerprint your content
3) Engage a DMCA agent
4) Report abuse to search engines
5) Report abuse to payment processors
6) Take legal action (more…)

Even more clamor was raised by those that are never going to be affected by .xxx. The mob mentality was rampant. People that really have no clue what the issues are jumped on the bandwagon, presuming that the GFY crusader(s) knew something more than they did. A lot of speculation and theorizing made up most of the arguments.

Since I have some of the loudest of the mob leaders on ignore, I did not read all the claims made. If it was not for the fact that I received emails apologizing for getting me involved, along with Twitter and Facebook messages suggesting that for some reason I had to be involved in some way, I would not even be writing this article. Luckily, I am in the position of not caring if someone does not approve of my thoughts on the matter. Rather than have my thoughts buried by trolls, I have decided to put them here. (more…)
