Content Protection for Books and Press

Book piracy is tangibly hitting the publishing industry, leading to a serious drop in sales from publishing houses and book distributors. The value of the authors’ hard work is also at stake as financial shortfalls result in lower royalties paid to writers

As opposed to copyright owners in entertainment and sports, the publishing industry is not only facing the problem of rampant piracy and copyright violations against ebooks and magazines, but also the surge in the distribution of illegally published physical books.

Book Piracy Outside the Digital Universe

The distribution of counterfeit books published illegally and advertised on large marketplaces and social media is flourishing. It’s not only easy to find a pirated digital copy of a student textbook or a recent fiction bestseller but also to get an illegal physical copy for a very low price. The quality of the counterfeit books may vary significantly from conspicuous reprints to high-quality copies that require a close anti-counterfeit assessment.

We provide anti-counterfeit coverage as a service separate from anti-piracy protection.
