@femdomgoddes you seem to be re-posting the same information in this thread over and over again.

Some nations and states do censor search results like you suggest. If you look at who and what end up being censored it tend to be much more then just copy right infringement. It tend to result in some form of 'thought police'.

Even in those countries, people still have access to every thing their trying to block. They create private networks like darknet, tor, or VPN into countries with lacks laws.

As much as this is a technical issue; it's also a social issue. Before the internet people swapped copied VHS tapes and DVDs. Or copies made in movie theaters using hand held 50 mm cameras.

I was thinking about making a new thread. But this one is so timely and this article just fit in here rather well. It could effect those censored search results too.


LINKING TO PIRATED CONTENT IS NOT COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT, SAYS EU COURT ADVISER
https://torrentfreak.com/linking-to-pirated-content-is-not-copyright-infringement-160407/


Linking to pirated content that is already available to the public can not be seen as copyright infringement under the European Copyright Directive. This is the advice Advocate General Melchior Wathelet has sent to the EU Court of Justice, in what may turn out to be a landmark case.

---
One of the key roles of the EU’s Court of Justice is to interpret European law to ensure that it’s applied in the same manner across all member states.

The Court is also called upon by national courts to clarify finer points of EU law to progress local cases with Europe-wide implications.

In recent years the Court was called upon to rule on several cases related to hyperlinking, in an effort to established whether links to other websites can be seen as copyright infringement.

Previously, it ruled that links to copyrighted works are not infringing if the copyright holder published them in public, and the same is true for embedding copyrighted videos.

But what if a link points to content that is not authorized by the copyright holder? Would this still be allowed? According to EU Advocate General Melchior Wathelet, it is.

In an advisory opinion to the EU Court of Justice, which will issue a final ruling later, the Advocate General reviewed a dispute between the Dutch weblog GeenStijl.nl and Playboy.

In October 2011, GeenStijl.nl published a post linking to leaked Playboy photos, which were hosted on the file-hosting service FileFactory.

Playboy publisher Sanoma successfully requested the removal of the photos at the hosting service, but in response GeenStijl continued to link to other public sources where they were still available.

The Dutch Court asked the EU Court of Justice to rule whether these links can be seen as a ‘communication to the public’ under Article 3(1) of the Copyright Directive of the Copyright Directive, and whether they facilitate copyright infringement.

In his advice today the Advocate General acknowledges that the hyperlinks facilitate the discovery of the copyrighted works, and make them more easily available. However, this isn’t copyright infringement.

“…hyperlinks which lead, even directly, to protected works are not ‘making them available’ to the public when they are already freely accessible on another website, and only serve to facilitate their discovery,” the EU Court of Justice’s writes, commenting on the advice.

The Advocate General argues that “linking” is not the same as making the content available, which would apply to the original uploader. This means that GeenStijl’s actions can not be characterized as copyright infringement.

“The actual act of ‘making available’ is the action of the person who effected the initial communication. Consequently, hyperlinks which are placed on a website and which link to protected works that are freely accessible on another site cannot be classified as an ‘act of communication’ within the meaning of the Directive.”

“In fact, the intervention of the owner of the site which places the hyperlink, in this case GS Media, is not indispensable to the photos in question being made available to internet users, including those who visit GeenStijl’s website,” the Court clarifies.

The advice is a setup for a landmark ruling. However, the Court stresses that the advice only applies to this particular case.

Technically, most torrent sites including The Pirate Bay, mostly link to material that’s already available elsewhere. However, in these cases the general purpose of the site may also be taken into account.

That said, the advice is good news for news sites, bloggers and the general public, as incidentally linking to relevant copyrighted material should be allowed in most cases.

The Advocate General’s advice is not binding, but the European Court of Justice often uses such advice as the basis of its rulings. The final verdict is expected to be released later this year.

I've heard that since camming began. Hell I've heard that applied to other things long before there was even a world wide web at all. Yet people still buy them don't they? Yes, yes they do.

The music industry has cried about these issues for nearly a century.

When radio started playing music, instead of just news and dramas, they cried and moaned it would be the death of the music industry because people wouldn't buy records, and just listen to the radio.

When recordable magnetic tapes were made available to consumers, the music industry cried they were going to go under because people would simply record their favorite songs off the radio and never buy albums again.

Remember when the Internet was going to destroy the music industry?

The movie industry has also had similar scare mongering tactics.

Just read through Jack Valenti's opening statements to a congress subcomitee hearing, in which he swears that the recordable video cassette and VCRs being made availoable to the public were going to absolutely destroy not only Hollywood, but the very fiscal foundation of the United States: https://cryptome.org/hrcw-hear.htm

Or the movie industry still claiming that the Internet will destroy them.

And how the movie, movie and TV industries basically wrote SOPA and PIPA as a way for them to basically control the Internet.

So, congratulations, OP, on sounding just like the dinosaurs in the movie and music industries crying wolf at the very thought of something new.

Their twitter account is just as spammy looking and obnoxious, too.

As many times as I read through the posts here, I still don't understand what exactly is wanted from us. Is there a product being sold directly from OP that they want us all to buy and use? Is it just that they want us to agree and share the propaganda on our own social media? Are we supposed to petition the cam sites and all other cam performers?

If you're going to take a stand for a cause you feel strongly about, you must be able to communicate clearly and discuss the topic without getting sassy about it. If you campaign for a cause and only create animosity toward yourself or the cause, you're only doing a disservice to it.

Lol, actually asked how independent models and studios could leverage the tech and never really got an answer to that. Been way too swamped with other shit to put the due dilligence into researching tech and trying to figure out solution-partners, and was hoping for a cookie cutter answer.

Still interested in taking a look at everything the original poster posted in-depth, but not high on my list of priorities.

All of it still doesn't solve the issue of takedowns, which is another huge concern. It's obvious which sites have pirated content that's blatantly being monetized in illegal ways. Identifying it is only half of the issue.

Still, all very interesting, just the same. Especially if there's some kind of insight into what sites are actually leveraging this tech, and actually using it in an actionable way.

Except artists get royalties from radio. I don't know too much about music royalties, how BMI factors into it, and all that shit, but I know they get royalties. If camgirls were getting royalties from their pirated content, at least they'd have that going for them.
 
Y'all know the OP was banned, right? She's probably not gonna see your posts addressed to her, unless she happens to be reading the forum incognito.

Pirated content is still a topic worthy of discussion, especially since some people still view it as a victimless crime.

Yup, and I didn't say you can't continue the discussion. I said that people are still addressing the OP in their posts when she's not even on here anymore...

Either way, this information has been extremely helpful to me. I appreciate you, Femdom Goddess and the hard work you have put here to educate and inform your fellow cam models. Even if the technology does not put an END to this it at least gives me personal assurance that I did MY PART to try to prevent the spread of this ugly act. In my opinion, this is ugly because it affects so many lives and yes we all know what we are signing up for and that was not to be uploaded all over the internet when you sign a model contract with specific companies that say that this is your work and they don't approve of illegal uploads. I just believe this is great information for any girls who were looking to put a stop to this illegal action. Whether this works or not will soon be determined, but cam models and the companies they work for are losing money because if I don't give that tipper his flash for his 2 tks instead of the 101tks I have listed on my page, what stops him from doing a quick google search and in 1.3 milliseconds getting it for free (just the labor of his working fingers and internet connection). I stand behind this cause and thank you very much for this information, Femdom Goddess- I'll be using this like RIGHT NOW! Just trying to figure it all out..lol.

Happy Camming 2 You All! :happy:

How To Stop Piracy At Its Source!

Please share this information and join the conversation by providing your ideas and opinion!

We Are At War!

As cam models and digital content creators we are losing the battle against piracy. The pirates have stolen our content and are making a fortune with it. Piracy has turned into a big business full of truly evil capitalists. Many times the pirates are making more money than the people who create the content. Why else would they spread our content on a massive scale?

With a simple Google search of your name all of your cam shows and content is free for the world. It’s right there in the search engine being advertised and no one cares. Why would anyone want to purchase your content of pay for your cam show when they can watch it for free with just a few clicks? This not only hurts you but the content distributors (cam sites and clip stores) as well. We are all losing money from these copyright infringements.

DMCA Takedown Notices No Longer work!

Most of us spend countless hours defending ourselves by sending massive lists of links to our DMCA agents. If you're lucky some of your content will be removed but next week it will be right back online free for the taking. Sending notices to Google doesn’t work either. As soon as those links are de-listed they are immediately replaced with new ones. Anyone with half a brain knows where to find those de-listed links. To top it all off many of your notices are ignored because the pirates know that they won't be caught.

Technology Is On Our side!

We have been left in the dark while everyone else makes money on our content. The days of not knowing who is stealing our content must come to an end. Lucky for us there are 2 types of technology that can stop piracy at its source. The source being the cam sites and the transaction between clip stores and the pirates.

The 2 types of technology that I’m referring to are Digital Watermarking and Digital Fingerprinting. Both already exist and can be easily implemented server side by the cam sites and clip store when you are streaming or your content is being purchased.

Digital Watermarking can be applied to all types of video/media distribution including streaming. If done correctly watermarking in nearly impossible to remove. If the pirate tries to modify the content, uses screen capture software or even uses a camcorder to record the screen the watermark can not be removed.

Both technologies are known to greatly reduce piracy. Digital Watermarking has the capability to track and tell us exactly who the pirate is. This is the pirate's worst nightmare! Digital Fingerprinting blocks the content from being uploaded to tube sites like PornHub who currently utilizes this technology. See list of tube sites who participate in Digital Fingerprinting below. YouTube has been using Digital Fingerprinting since 2007.

We Must Fight Back! Reach Out To The Cam Sites & Clip Stores!

Be a part of the Anti-Piracy movement! Do not be silent! We must all ban together to take back what is rightfully ours! We don't stand a chance alone, but in numbers we have a strong voice. I urge you to contact the cam sites and clip stores and ask them to implement these solutions ASAP. The solution to stopping our content from being pirated is the distribution platforms.

Both the original creator and the content distributor will benefit greatly from these technologies. Entertainment is not free but the pirates are making it that way. It must stop now! These solutions will change the industry if implemented properly. The cam sites and clips stores have the information and money to make it happen.

The only way watermarking is going to be effective is if the clip stores and streaming sites implement it. The reason I say this is because content distributors know who their customers are. They have information such as name, username, email, IP, billing info etc. Nobody will want to get banned from their favorite websites or busted for pirating your content. Watermarking has to be done at the point of distribution or it is useless.

The only way to reduce piracy is to stop it at its source! The transaction between the original pirate and the cam site and/or clip store is that source. If we don’t utilize this technology we will continue to lose the battle against piracy.


Digital Watermarking

What is Digital Watermarking?

Digital Watermarking
is also known as Forensic Watermarking. Digital watermarking enables effective content identification by providing a unique digital identity to all forms of media content in a way that stays embedded with the content wherever it may travel. One application of digital watermarking is Source Tracking. A watermark is embedded into the digital content at each point of distribution. If a pirated copy of the work is found, the watermark may be retrieved from the copy to identify the pirate. This technique reportedly has been used to detect the source of illegally copied movies.



How Digital Watermarking Works

Digital Watermarks are easily embedded into content without interfering with the consumer's enjoyment of it. It is imperceivable to humans, but easily detected and understood by computers, networks and a wide range of common digital devices. The watermark can carry such information as who owns it, how it may be used or anything else the owner wants to convey. It can also trigger predefined actions, including linking to websites or other rich consumer experiences. The watermark applications can embed situational metadata such as where it was purchased, time/date of purchase, received format, purchaser’s username, purchaser’s IP address and other valuable information. Some watermark applications embed a distinct forensic watermark at each stage of content distribution, enabling pinpoint accuracy. This will allow us to identify exactly who the pirate is and enable cam sites and clip stores to ban offenders. This information can also be used as legal evidence in a criminal action if necessary .

Locating Content Online With Digital Watermarking


Internet search services are available that constantly crawl the web looking for uniquely watermarked content. Reports are then generated notifying the owner of where their content was found, allowing them to take any actions deemed necessary.

Effective location of content online helps content producers and distributors…

  • Ensure fair compensation for content usage online.

  • Monitor that the right content is being used on the right sites at the right time.

  • Quickly identify unauthorized usage of content to enable a range of remedies such as banning known pirates and seeking legal action.

  • Gather useful market intelligence about what consumers are accessing and where.

  • Ensure more effective brand management.
Digital Fingerprinting

What is Digital Fingerprinting?

Digital Fingerprints
are digital characteristics extracted from the original content (audio or video) which uniquely identifies the creator’s specific content. This unique identifier (fingerprint) can then be put in a database for comparison when content is uploaded to a website. If the content is banned from the website because of the identifying fingerprint, it cannot be uploaded. You will see a list of tube sites below that currently participate in Digital Fingerprinting.

Unlike Watermarking, Video fingerprinting does not rely on any addition to the video/stream. A video fingerprint cannot be "removed" because it is not "added". In addition, a reference video fingerprint can be created at any point from any copy of the video.

YouTube and Digital Fingerprinting


YouTube introduced content management and identification based on Digital fingerprinting technology called “Content ID” in 2007 and is used today by thousands of media companies to register their content and prevent illegal uploads. YouTube follows the copyright policy which empowers original content owners to either remove all previously uploaded copyrighted work and/or prevent newly uploaded pirated content. The same can be done in the adult world with the cooperation of content distributors .
