Hello all,

I am new to this forum but I thought I would take suggestions from the more experienced cam girls. I am trying to get my broadcast streams down from upstore. I have sent dmca complaints to upstore just today and I was wondering if they respond to DMCA complaints.

I have read in forums on ACF that some cam models reported the upstore links so I was wondering how they got to it. Also, I am using cammodelprotection. I don't know how effective they are. If they are effective then I would update you guys :)

Thanks!

Upstore ignore them. But cam model protection claim to be able to remove them, if you have a paid subscription to their service.

Hi there!

I made an entire thread about CMP here: https://www.ambercutie.com/forums/threads/cam-model-protection-complete-information.22483/
Here is another list that is likely to have pirated content of your free chat shows: https://www.ambercutie.com/forums/threads/a-comprehensive-list-of-websites-with-leaked-content.22453/

In short, yes, CMP are the only ones that can and do take down upstore links.

Take care!

Thanks, I did give them the links(there were 44) and they said they have reported them and they should be down ina "few" days. Lets see what happens :)

I did write a DMCA to upstore myself and also gave the links to cam model protection. I will see what happens and update you. I just want them gone, at least until I return to camming again. Do you know if the recordings are of the same quality as the original cam show. Since the downloads need a premium subscription, I couldn't download them.

UPDATE : Cam model protection couldn't get to take them down from upstore but they said they are still looking into it.
If they can't take them down too then I will have to find some other way to get them to take them down.

Do not fill out and submit your own dmca. In order for it to be legal you need to include your real information and in turn, sending your real personal info to the biggest cam girl hating trolls out there.
Have dmca sent through third parties only, such as the camsite they were capped from or CMP. Though I wouldn't hold your breath with upstore either way

The recordings are not as good quality as the actual show, but it is better then most other cap sites. It's usually "average quality", rather then "great" or even "good", if that helps.

There is also a watermark found in the upper right that they add on.

Thanks! Yes, I have been told not to use my real name so I am using CMP right now but did not have much luck with upstore. When I asked them they said they have always been able remove from upstore. They were able to take down from other sites but not upstore. Hope that upstore responds.

I guess thats a little bit comforting. I just want to keep "low" until I get a real job. My real identity is not tied to my cam identity in any way but I am just worried that they will be uploaded on tube sites like pornhub or xtube which my family might stumble upon them while browsing the internet. I should have been more careful in covering my face. I just dont want to be outed until I have good financial standing in life.
I know I have myself to blame.

Upstore: still I didn't have much success with upstore although other file hosting sites took the recorded files down.

I just hope that they are not found bu someone and uploaded onto tubesites(haven't found any yet). I came fot 20 days and haven't cammmed in the last four months.

Also, I am not trying to take down the images (screen captures) from the shows itself because I heard those sites just ignore DMCAs.

I was able to get 17 files removed from Upstore! BY MYSELF! FOR FREE! The trick is to contact CloudFlare instead of Upstore! (CloudFlare hosts Upstore's servers.)

Here's how to get your shit removed ladies and gents:

1. Go to https://www.cloudflare.com/abuse/form

2. Fill out all the information correctly! With DIRECT links to the upstore files in the "infringed content"
section. (Not link shorteners! A direct link looks similar to this: https://upstore.net/ONd27873952)

3. Where it says "Describe the original work" write:
The linked video was recorded from [INSERT YOUR CAM SITE HERE for example: chaturbate.com/b/BigButts] without permission from me. I am the content owner, creator, and account operator. I own all broadcasted videos. I need it removed immediately, or I will have to take further legal action. I have reasonable good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of in the report is not authorized by myself, my agents, or the law. The information provided herein is accurate to the best of my knowledge. Therefore, this is an official notification to effect removal of the detected infringement listed in the report. Thank you for understanding.

4. Fill out the digital signature with your name. (Or a fake name, I used my real name and had no problems...CloudFlare is a trustworthy organization. But, it's up to you.)

All of my upstore files were gone within 48 hours! When I go to them it says "404 Page removed. - CloudFlare"

You're welcome! FUCK UPSTORE! :D

I'd be surprised if cloudflare actually responded to the DMCA request by forcing a 404 error on those urls.

Cloudflare's stated policy for responding to DMCA is to provide the contact details of the account owner, and the IP of the actual web server.
https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200167716-How-do-I-file-a-DMCA-complaint-
That isn't very helpful since upstore already has a contact form for dmca.

I'd file this under 'couldn't hurt to try. Maybe cloudflare is taking action beyond pointing you at their customer, the server owner. if you follow the usual DMCA advice to protect your identity.

Fill out the digital signature with your name. (Or a fake name, I used my real name and had no problems...CloudFlare is a trustworthy organization. But, it's up to you.)
cloudflare is trustworthy, but that doesn't mean your info is safe. They warn you on the submission page that this information is going to be sent to others. You dont want to self-dox while trying to protect your internet privacy.
"By submitting this report, you consent to the above information potentially being released by CloudFlare to third parties such as the website owner, the responsible hosting provider, law enforcement, and/or entities like Chilling Effects."

if anyone tries I'd be interested in the results.

I tried it . I had my hopes high hoping that I'll finally get rid of the over 100 videos I have on upstore but it was in vain :( That's what cloudfare responded ...

FWIW, I signed up with cam model protect specifically because of upstore.net. They had my videos removed from there within 3 days. So there must be a process available to that CMP is using.

Hello! I apologize for my english (i'm italian) but i have a big problem of conscience and, reading the "cam model protection" thread, i wanted first to ask you before contacting that site.
I have a romanian female friend that cams on myfreecams very randomly (once a month, or once every two months). She has a regular job so this is a "surplus" job and also something she likes. She has ridiculous camscore and very low number of people in room (sometimes less than 10), so she thinks she's "among few friends", i guess this is what she thinks, and this gives her a sense of safety. She doesn't upgrade the profile... i tell you this to tell that she doesn't put so much effort on this site, and i think that's a good thing of mfc: each model can use it the way she likes, to make lots of money or also some pocket money now and then, as she does. Surely, knowing her personality, she wouldn't ever have cammed if she couldn't exclude Romania from the potential audience.
The fact is: i'm nearly sure she doesn't even imagine there are the recorded shows on "upstore" and the satellite sites as "megafreecams". When i discovered it, i wanted to warn her... then i had a conscience problem: telling her, so to thrill her in an enormous way? And why? To make her stop trying to earn something more and having fun with her fans? or going on, but with a thrilled attitude? So i said to myself: i can tell her ONLY if i have the solution. I read about "cam models protection" and all.... but then... i see girls who have the CMP ad on their profile and ALL their SHOWS are on upstore too?! So, what sense has being protected by CMP? So, please, can you tell me if they really work and if they really can remove the videos? Or how can i do to help my friend having her privacy, that i know was and STILL IS PROMISED by myfreecams.com for contract (no images in their countries, if they not want?). Thank you.

I think it's best to summarize the issue, this way: CMP (and other services) can help REDUCE the amount of files out there, including those on Upstore. However, it is IMPOSSIBLE to remove absolutely everything from the internet. There are many sites hosted in countries where DMCA removal law does not apply. Being recorded and posted everywhere is simply part of the job of being a cam girl.

Thank you Princess Mika. Yes, you are right but as i wrote here, if there wasn't the "exclude the country where i live" function, a lot of models wouldn't have joined that site. The fact that they lost time to study that function with available or unavailable models dedpending on the country you access the site, means that this is considered important. And now they, a big company, can't control all this, and the models have to pay. Ok, but again, there are less than 20 videos on upstore, not many. And i saw the ones of Somnia Mia were effectively deleted. So, i'm only asking: are they able to take off 20 videos from upstore? If yes, i subscribe for her or at least i ask her what she wants. Thanks again!

In my opinion, geo-restricting a stream is pretty pointless. It is a false sense of security for the model. It is very easy to by-pass this type of thing via VPN.

Anyway, I think you are missing the point. Yes, CMP can get the Upstore links down but I guarantee you that this model is on much more than just Upstore (and it is within these sites where CMP may not be able to get the links to the pictures/videos down). You are acting as though Upstore is the only site that posts recorded shows of cam models and it's actually just one of many. Also, just because the video links are gone, CMP is usually unable to get the picture previews down as well. So, anyone can see the picture stills of the show, even if the link to download the video has been deleted.

Asking for a friend, what sort of info does a model need to give to cammodelprotection ?
I've seen mixed old posts about them being able to and not able to get videos removed from upstore, is this still the case ?

Hello.
I'd like to share my experience about dmca companies, upstore and those shitty cap sites.
First of all I am terrified of seeing camsites making insane amount of money each day and don't give a sh*t about models safety. Even a DMCA company I joined shows much more interest by taking other actions than just filling abuse forms. I know it would be hard to fight with all pirate sites and idiots been/will always record us but I cam for many many years and (for me) problems started with those damn archives. Videos I founded on tube sites were taken exactly from those sites.
DMCA companies are able to take upstores down but for few months the capper re-uploads it in space of 2 days for most models. And the more you will dmca the more he will focus on you and act maliciously. Other upload sites react very quickly and - at least in my case - in 100%. Upstore looks like it wants to do 'more or less' to make ppl think its legit. They deleted my complain ticket after 2 days without any respond.
Anyway. I did some research (costed me time, nerves and also money at some point) and I can give a very good advice to models who are concerned about this. I don't want to say what/how in 'open space' for a reason. I can't solve the problem completely but You will be satisfied after speaking to me. If You don't have a verified profile here or just reading this as a guest contact me from Your MFC model account via mail (same nickname, its my member account). VERIFIED models can mail me here.

Hey all.

I can tell from experience of trying to get vids down from upstore that they do NOT remove them. Cloud flare is no better. When you do all the steps they aske you to do they simply block your ip from upstore to make you think it's down. If you use a different ip you can still access all videos that you thought were actually removed. Many sites use upstore to upload the videos of the live streams.

What I mean by that is yes there are many different sites getting paid for our content, yet it all leads back to upstore for the actual download. Pisses me off and they do not care. So stop paying these people to remove it because they are not.

Also if it seems the thumbnails have been removed they have but if you still have thumbnails associated with a site that supposedly removed your vids you will see that once you go the the site all of your vids present/past will still be there.

You can also Google your performer name and see you will be found. If you ask google to remove thumbnails they will but tgey will also share your real name and also still link back to the video etc that you asked to be removed. How is that helpin? The whole point is to remove it so no one knows it was you in the first place.

Just all very frustrating.
