Smart protection of your digital content


Protection against online piracy

Group-IB Anti-Piracy protects brands against pirated usage and unauthorized distribution of their unique digital content.


Global online piracy has been on the rise for years. Despite increasingly available legal streaming options, online piracy remains a significant concern for many industries relating to information technologies, software, telecommunications, audio recording, movie and TV show production, and the sports and entertainment segments.


During the pandemic, traffic to pirated websites increased by 40%. Shadow revenues are also increasing. To put it into perspective: the annual income of an average illegal online cinema is around $160,000, while a pirated content streaming website makes $89,000 per year on average.


Protect your digital content and revenue

Group-IB‘s Anti-Piracy team uses unique machine-learning technologies applied to complex investigations of cyberattacks in order to detect pirate resources, identify their owners, and block infringing content.


Group-IB leverages its reputation among hosting providers and domain registrars worldwide to promptly remove unauthorized content.


We collaborate with the leading anti-piracy associations and law-enforcement agencies to combat online piracy on a global scale.


How it works:

1. Monitoring

Group-IB’s Anti-Piracy monitors more than 100,000 resources in multiple languages from torrent trackers and streaming services to groups in social media and pirated platforms on the deep and the dark web.
