Protecting Publishers and Their Authors from
Book piracy is a growing and global problem. With e-book standards
continuing to evolve and the established popularity of tablets and
other e-readers, book piracy is expected to grow dramatically in
2016 and beyond. A recent study suggested that e-books with piracy
protection experience 13 percent fewer unit sales, representing a
potential loss of nearly $100 million from a single major bookseller
Publishers are faced with this piracy growth at the worst possible
time; while they are dealing with the challenges of growing price and
cost pressure, increasing consolidation, increasing power of eretailers, and author anxiety over their livelihood and copyright
protection. Piracy scales instantaneously and at Internet speed, but
enforcement efforts are technology, skill and headcount constrained.
This imbalance puts bestsellers, new releases and editions, and
complete catalogs at risk of significant revenue loss.
In order to reduce piracy, protect revenues
commitment to authors, publishers must find scalable, cost effective
and demonstrable piracy protection solutions. With scanning and
DRM cracking technologies ubiquitous and inexpensive, the creation
of pirated content is inevitable. Going after consumers is difficult to
execute and scale and can have a significant public relations
downside. The only effective way to reduce the impact of piracy is to
disrupt the piracy ecosystem at the point of distribution: the
cyberlockers, peer-to-peer networks, content sites and feeder pages
that supply content to end consumers.
Digimarc® Guardian is the leading solution to protect publishers and authors from book piracy losses by
cost effectively and globally disrupting the distribution of pirated content. It is an end-to-end service that
discovers and validates pirated content on cyberlockers, peer-to-peer networks and other offending
