Global Anti-Piracy Intelligence

INCOPRO’s IDENTIFY system was created for content owners to provide a comprehensive global overview of online infringement of protected content. IDENTIFY is currently tracking over 17,000 sites that are engaged in facilitating copyright infringement and is continuously discovering new sites.

IDENTIFY gives content owners key data for:

  • range of enforcement activities
  • industry co-operations
  • outreach to Government
  • analytical studies

New sites are discovered via several processes

INCOPRO internal scanning technology looks for multi-industry search terms, discovering and queuing yet-to-be classified sites.
Weekly review of sites reported to Google (available through Transparency Reports).
Review of popular discussion forums and news sites.
Client submission – new sites discovered clents/third party vendors.

IDENTIFY includes an ‘infringement index’ (”INCOPRO Infringement Index”), which is an expert and logical assessment of the extent to which a site is infringing or facilitating the infringement of intellectual property rights.

This scoring system enables robust analytics and a true understanding of the global piracy landscape with a focus on the most egregious operators.
