Group-IB has been demonstrating its commitment to the cause since 2011, when its Anti-Piracy Department was established. Group-IB Anti-Piracy uses innovative intelligence driven technologies to detect pirated websites and remove infringement content. The company’s specialists provide 24/7 monitoring of 120 000+ online resources from torrent trackers and streaming services to groups in social networks and pirated platforms in the DarkNet and around 80% of links to illegal content are successfully blocked within 24 hours. Group-IB has successfully protected several movies and TV series including «Game of Thrones», «X-Men: Days of Future Past», «True Detective» and many more.

Piracy is currently a highly profitable undertaking with a complicated network of relations. There is proof of its connections to other types of crime. The alarming figures concerning the scale of theft and illegal trade of audiovisual content are a motivating factor to take action. Holding the first international meeting on combating piracy in our region was aimed at underlining the value of experience sharing and the necessity of cooperation between organisations, institutions and governmental bodies as well as businesses from various countries.
