Correct me if we are wrong. We have been illegally recorded from out chaturbate site while we were online and put it on other sites so they could sell our videos. It has been going on for sometime without us knowing about it until we googled our screen name and POOW!!!! There we were on other sites for people to download and view. We know of course there is not much we can do for them to do that and the DCMA thing is a joke. Some have taken our videos down most haven’t. One thing that does help that we have seen is if you click “no” on the settings where it says “Appears on other networks sites”. This could just be coincidence or this could help. Does anyone else ever had these issues? You will have less views but for us it does appear to have much less illegal recording of us. We would like to know if anyone else has had this happened to them and if it has what has helped you. 685F052D-F280-4729-AFAD-40ED3831C052.png

If a recording site is lazy and only pulls the usernames from the affiliate API then yes that would help.

Keep in mind that Chaturbate has the highest rate of pirated content among all cam sites.

Disabling the "Appear on network sites" option can surely help, but you should analyze your earnings before and after disabling that option to see if it's worth it.

If anyone would like to see how much of their content has been illegally recorded and re-uploaded on third party websites, here's our free tool: https://www.stormdmca.com/analysis.php
It is programmed to scan over 150 adult sites.


Can I ask you a favor? Could you please PM me the websites that didn't remove your content after sending the DMCA notices? Thanks!

Sorry to read/see this has happened to you.


I do webcam modeling and porn on Saturdays and Sundays, and sad to say, yes, I have dealt with some of my porn movies being available/pirated, for people to watch for free on other sites as well (like Pornhub).

I tried to sue these d-bags who stole my content, but even my lawyer, and the lawyer for the guy/boss I work with in porn, said because it's public domain, it's not worth the time and/or the legal fees. I contacted 6 other attorney's who basically told me the same thing. If you can find a way to file a MF of a lawsuit against these pirates, and make a lot of money, let me and/or anybody else on the ACF know. BTW, I'm still researching this and contacting other attorney's on how to deal with this issue whenever I'm offline. Laws vary depending on wherever you live.

You're doing the right thing to reduce this issue, and I hope you don't continue to deal with this issue, now and moving forward.


Worst case scenario, I hope this issue gets you more traffic so you can make more money and/or free marketing. Example: Somebody comes into your cam room and pays for a pvt show, and says I'm a big fan, discovered you on Pornhub, or from wherever, and then you get a loyal fan either on a cam site, on Skype, and/or both. A lot of my loyal customers I do Skype shows with found me through my content on leaked sites. I hope the same happens to you, whether you work on the webcam full-time and/or part-time.

I hope my response wasn't too long, boring, and/or put you to sleep.

Hi. I researched this for a few months and talked to some lawyers when a popular model stole content from me. From my research and understanding... Copyright laws in the US protect your content for 70 years past your death. The law starts the moment content is given a timestamp to prove its creation date. 30 years ago publishers would recommend you mail things to yourself and never open them to establish copyright. It was cheaper than submitting it to the government. Now you only need to publish it on a site that shows the date/time (or email the content to yourself), and you're covered. Public Domain means the item was published in such a way that gives everyone the right to reuse and profit off your content/writing/videos, etc. However, unless you strictly registered the content on a public domain web site and/or put the public domain information in the release notes, it is not public domain until 70 years after your death.

As it was explained to me, the issue is more that a lawsuit goes after the domain, which then tries to go after the person who maintains the content. Most domains will just delete the content before dealing with courts, so you'll win but won't win. Getting to the people who set up the content is almost impossible. Also, for every public site Google can find with matching content, there are 20 dark-web sites with tools like facial matching and lookups to help you find when your favorite porn star was in a video 25 years ago that they happen to have archived (I've seen them and the discussions where things are traded in an extremely sophisticated way).

I'm not claiming to be an expert, only replying with my own experience. I dealt with my copyright issue 3-ish years ago. In my case it was much easier to get a result because I didn't need to go after a huge underground web of pirates. I think that huge underground movement is exactly why lawyers are claiming 'public domain'.

Cheers,
Cexmental

Thank you for this response. I'm not giving up on dealing with d-bags who have not just stolen my stuff, but other people's stuff as well. If I discover anything new, I'll let you know, but I do appreciate you taking the time to respond to this message. I'm going to be doing a couple of pornos this upcoming weekend unless somebody cancels, co-star and/or cameraman/camerawoman, so I will bring up the subject again to see if the guy who owns the company I do vids with, has any new insights into this issue/s.

That is really interesting. I have never thought about it from that angle. So if I make a website public domain of our own and then put the videos on there that would be a copyright infringement if they used those video on theirs. A lot of work to do to keep the videos off considering most of them don’t care. Crap I would be happy with them just giving us a cut of the what they made from our videos. But if it gets someone off watching them I guess so be it. My wife and I just enjoy being watched. I have to say it’s not as easy as it might seem knowing that 10000 people are watching us. Thanks for all the time and effect you put in to write all that for us. We greatly appreciate it.

Hi,
I'm not an expert, but I do know there are different levels of public domain. Some allow free usage, some allow limited usage, etc. If you simply publish something 'fixed in a tangible medium of expression' with a real timestamp, you're covered. If anyone uses your content you will be within your rights to go after them, as long as you can prove ownership of the 'thing' and have that timestamp to prove when it was 1st copyrighted. I'm coming at this from the stand point of 'written content', however, creative content such as music and videos (you're expressed creative works) are also covered by the same set of rules in the US.

Here is a good write up from Stanford University about Public Domain : https://fairuse.stanford.edu/overview/public-domain/welcome/

Here is a quick summary of copyright and public domain from Cornell University : https://guides.library.cornell.edu/copyright/publicdomain
