The Copyright Enforcement Group (CEG) today announced that it has expanded its extensive portfolio to 5,500 copywritten titles. CEG will protect and monetize all 5,500 titles across peer-to-peer protocols (P2P), user-generated content sites (UGC) and websites 24/7/365.
Under the terms of 17 multi-year agreements, CEG has obtained the exclusive rights to protect and monetize all 5,500 titles globally. All titles are enrolled in CEG’s flagship Peer to Peer Collect Service. The service allows content owners to monetize peer-to-peer (P2P) activity and realize revenues from an unexpected source: internet piracy. Infringers are continuously tracked every hour of every day. Those identified as sharing copyrighted content will automatically receive a “pre-settlement” offer by email and can settle and purchase legitimate goods via Copyright Enforcement Group’s collections website at www.copyrightsettlements.com.
About Peer to Peer Collect
CEG’s Peer to Peer Collect Service follows a three step process:
Step 1 – Upload & Track: Content is uploaded to the tracking system and monitored across multiple peer-to-peer protocols 24/7/365. When an infringement occurs, evidence is collected and placed in a queue for authentication.
Step 2 – Authenticate & Notify: Infringement evidence passes a strict multi-stage process involving fingerprinting and visual authentication to virtually eliminate false positives. After authentication, collection notices are automatically generated and emailed to Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and individual infringers.
Step 3 – Enforce & Collect: Infringers receive a notice via email that directs them to CEG’s branded collections website at www.copyrightsettlements.com. The website allows a “pre-settlement” offer via paying a fine or purchasing goods.
Once a settlement is paid or goods are purchased the infringer is released from liability and the collection is split between the copyright owner and Copyright Enforcement Group. If an infringer doesn’t pay the settlement or ignores the notice CEG’s in-house legal team takes over until a collection is realized.
Multiple Settlement Options for Infringers
CEG’s solutions are designed to offer infringers fair and practical settlement options while giving copyright owners the opportunity to realize revenues that would have otherwise been lost to digital piracy. CopyrightSettlements.com offers infringers a myriad of options when compared to traditional copyright enforcement agencies. Options include monetary fines, hard goods purchases (DVDs, CDs, Books, etc.) and digital content purchases (video files, audio files, ebooks, etc.) at price points that are drastically less than traditional direct to litigation methods. In addition, infringers can remain anonymous and protect their privacy.
