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.
