CHATSWORTH, CA — Visitors to popular porn tube sites are noticing a sharp decrease in full-length movies and scenes, as Takedown Piracy’s Nemesis continues to wreak havoc on content pirates. An exclusive custom tool unveiled by Takedown Piracy in July 2013, Nemesis has already removed over 40,000 counts of tube piracy.
“While Nemesis is only one of the ways we are targeting piracy, I’m happy to report it has quickly become one of our most effective,” states Takedown Piracy owner Nate Glass. “In only a few short months, Nemesis has left a large footprint in the piracy world, accounting for over 30 percent of our total removal of more than 128,000 infringing tube videos.”
Since Takedown Piracy began implementing the Nemesis program, leading porn tube sites have witnessed a corresponding drop in traffic. PornHub.com is down over 1.47 million unique visitors per month since July. Traffic at RedTube.com has dropped over 1.29 million unique visitors, while Tube8.com decreased by over 401,000 unique visitors (numbers courtesy of Compete.com).
Pirates upset at Takedown Piracy’s effectiveness have even taken to forums to complain about the company. “I get angry when I spend four or five hours to upload something and in less than 10 minutes [it] is deleted,” posted one pirate. “Does anyone know a way to avoid Nate Glass bringing down my videos? Three of my own are about to be deleted. I hate this guy. I have strict rules and he is still able to find them,” complained another content thief.
Takedown Piracy’s clients are noticing the difference, too. Evil Angel General Manager Christian Mann says, "Evil Angel has been employing the services of Takedown Piracy for three years. We release as many as 20 titles per month, which means there are 100 new scenes for tubes and file sharing sites to steal. The popularity of our brand and our directors makes our studio one of the most sought after targets for pirates. This is a serious matter. Pirates aren’t just stealing our property; they are stealing our entire business. For this purpose, we had to employ every means to combat the problem, which includes the best DMCA solution available. Nate Glass' relentless searching is unparalleled. He ferrets them out. Nate is responsible for over 33,000 removals of Evil Angel tube videos.”
Companies like Evil Angel Video are actually being uploaded less as a result. “Well, guess what? Since we last spoke, that four-eyed douchebag [Nate Glass] has already removed the Evil Angel video I uploaded, so yeah, that’s it, no more Evil Angel uploads from me,” wrote one offender.
Glass retorts, “It’s always nice to hear from my fans, though since I’ve switched to contacts, I suppose I’m now a two-eyed douchebag.”
Nemesis is named after the Greek goddess heralded as an agent of divine punishment for wrongdoing or hubris. The Nemesis tool analyzes tube sites to pinpoint videos likely to be infringing on copyrights, so the Takedown Piracy team is able to verify the infringement and have the pirated content removed.

In addition to Nemesis, Takedown Piracy developed custom tools the Aikido Program and Aikido 2.0, as well as its advanced SEO program, Search Clean. Aikido 2.0 uses a PHP script to exploit large piracy aggregation sites. It takes sites meant to assist illegal downloads and transforms them into valuable assets in anti-piracy. True to its martial art namesake, the Aikido Program uses the strength of its opponent to its own advantage. Search Clean is responsible for eliminating infringements from even the largest search engines, like Google. The tools and programs remove hundreds of thousands of copyright infringements at an incredible speed.
Takedown Piracy actively tracks at least nine different ways content may be pirated, providing widespread coverage. Takedown Piracy’s army of servers offer protection in the following areas: Cyberlocker sites like Rapidshare, Torrent sites, Tube sites, Auctioned or unauthorized DVD resellers, Search Engines, Image Hosts, Blogs, Forums, and Social Media.
