In today’s world, piracy is not only pervasive, it’s socially acceptable, which results in brand dilution and content sharing without remuneration.

VFT Solutions, a company that identifies and finds custom solutions for piracy issues and other illicit online activities for content owners, brands and law enforcement agencies, released a white paper today entitled, “Pirate Personas.” The paper outlines and highlights the indisputable, existential threat that various types of proprietary content pirates pose to manufacturers, creators, owners and distributors of online content, goods and services. As technology has evolved, so have the methods of piracy, making all traditional top-down anti-piracy and brand protection systems less effective.

The VFT proactive, bottoms-up approach is a problem solving methodology compared to traditional top-down problem shifting alternatives that do nothing more than take down pirate sites and perpetuate the “whac-a-mole” effect.

”In today’s world, piracy is not only pervasive, it’s socially acceptable, which results in brand dilution and content sharing without remuneration,” said VFT Solution’s Co-Founder and white paper author Wayne Lonstein. “VFT wrote this white paper to provide tangible examples of how businesses can benefit by knowing the types of pirates that are out there, and how to develop a robust, proactive, and positive approach to protect themselves.”

The paper provides a series of insights, including:

  • How an intelligent, technology-based approach can prevent, control and monetize online piracy
  • How predictive online intelligence is the best preventative measure for piracy
  • How lawsuits, bandwidth throttling and website takedowns are not your only options to deal with piracy
  • How interacting with pirates can drive consumer insights for marketing, business intelligence and lead generation
