Anti-piracy services protect authorized distribution channels, and reduce the financial loss to online piracy. Providers of illegal copies are unmasked and evidence collected for legal action.

No Media Piracy defines movie piracy as “the unauthorized taking, copying or use of copyrighted materials without permission.” The history of movie piracy is tangled up in ever-advancing technologies. Movie piracy hurts a country’s economy, consumers and the movie industry. The International Intellectual Property Alliance estimated that as of 2008, the United States has lost $1.3 billion (USD) from movie piracy acts. The movie industry, plus home video and television programming, are huge components of American economic assets.
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) estimates that “a major movie on location contributes around $200,000 per day to local economies” due to studio employees using local businesses. Piracy detracts from these economic relationships. Distributors, theaters, video rental companies and pay-per-view providers all lose money.
Illegal motion picture and television piracy is a thriving domestic and international enterprise. The Motion Picture Association (MPA) estimates that its member companies lose approximately $6.1 billion globally.

Internet piracy is the downloading or distribution of unauthorized copies of intellectual property such as movies, television, music, games and software programs via the Internet. Illegal downloads occur in many forms including file sharing networks, pirate servers, websites and hacked computers. Each file posted on the Internet can result in millions of downloads.
Downloading a movie off of the Internet is the same as taking a DVD off a store shelf without paying for it. Making movies is an expensive business, and it is a risky business because of the potential low rate of return on investment. When large number of people “consumes” movies without paying, these so-called “free riders” undermine the financial base of movie making. While free riders are even more harmful to developing movie companies seeking a sound financial footing in the marketplace, they threaten major movie studios as well. If millions of people continue to steal movies, the result will be that the movie companies, both large and small, will be unable to produce quality content.
The biggest threat to the movie and television industry today is from from peer-to-peer file sharing, which allows copyrighted content to be distributed around the globe instantaneously without any compensation to the artists and producers of such content. Research shows that piracy costs the film industry billions of dollars each year. These are big numbers, and they are numbers that hurt everyone. The economic and social impact of Internet piracy theft is enormous and will have even greater, long-term implications if not brought under control.
