Automatic DMCA Takedown Service
Copyright Hero is an automatic Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown service for authors and digital product creators. We monitor video courses, audiobooks, books or music files and find all illegal copies. We then remove or hide them for you. This increases your sales and gives you more time to focus on creating content.
Please note: At the moment, we no longer offer our piracy protection service.
That being said, we offer an anti-piracy API for application developers. If you're developing a SaaS application or an online marketplace, this allows you to integrate anti-piracy right into your product, with a minimum of effort and no fixed costs.
We also offer customized anti-piracy web scraping services.
The Automatic DMCA Takedown Service Process
Your content is monitored 24/7 against piracy. A DMCA takedown notice is send as soon as a copyright infringement is encountered.
Monitoring Online Content - Discover
We scan the web for copyright-infringing content. Our automatic system finds all illegal copies of your works. That could be movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, books, video courses etc.
Identifying Copyright Infringement - Verify
After scanning for copyright infringement, we check and verify that the files found actually belong to your titles. We use a combination of automatic and manual checks.
Automatic DMCA Takedown Message - Takedown
In case of copyright infringement our system automatically sends DMCA takedown messages to the filehoster. If that doesn’t work, we get the pirate site removed from Google.
Results Are What Matter - Report
We provide you a monthly report with all the details of our anti-piracy efforts. You’ll be able to see statistics as well as a list of all stolen files.
Example: DMCA Takedown Results
A video course author sells a courses on his own website, at a price of $39.95. His sales volume is 90 / month. On average, when video course authors give us their titles to protect, we find and remove 114 files. Some products may suffer from piracy more; for some there are less files.
On average, protecting eBooks from piracy increases sales by 11-17% (here). We believe a similar or greater effect exists for video courses -- this is because the audience for video courses is more technologically literate, and more inclined towards piracy.
If we assume only a 10% benefit, then this would result in extra sales of $359.55 / month. Piracy protection will increase your revenue - with zero time investment on your part! You will receive monthly reports and statistics, and can also log into our website to check your piracy status at any time.

We Provide Anti Piracy Protection for your Digital Content
Are people stealing your work?
You may have found your content on file sharing sites. Most pirates use upload services to share the files. That means that anyone can download your product, for free, with just one click.
You're losing sales, but are unsure why?
Most people are honest and want to support your work. However, when pirated content is easy to find, many people give in to the temptation and just download the pirated version. This can reduce your sales significantly.
Are they even selling your content?
Some pirates may even start selling your content on their websites. That way, you're not only losing sales, but your product helps pirates finance their activities.
You've spent hours trying to track down piracy?
You may have heard about DMCA takedown notices. By sending these notices, you can ask upload services to remove your content. If you've tried that, you will know that it's very difficult to do manually. It takes a lot of time because for each file, pirates will upload dozens of copies. You've certainly got better things to do!
Protecting Video Courses
We have worked with numerous video course authors over the years. Most pirated video courses are hosted on filehosters, which allow to up- and download files easily. Therefore, piracy on filehosters can be effectively removed - and we can do that for you.
A 2015 study by the European Commission found that piracy hurts book sales, with a very high degree of certainty. The study also shows that eBook sales are especially affected, and that over 80% of eBook pirates would actually be willing to purchase the works.
Protecting Desktop Software and Mobile Apps
Lukas, the CEO and founder of Copyright Hero, has been selling his downloadable software online for 8 years. Desktop software and mobile apps are heavily affected by piracy, and can be effectively protected with our service.
Service for Publishers and Rights Management Organizations
We also work with large organizations. For example, we are working with CEDRO, the Spanish rightholders organization, to protect thousands of Spanish authors from piracy. If you are a publisher, or your organization represents rightholders, contact us. We can provide a customized anti-piracy solution for your particular needs.

Who is behind Copyright Hero?
Copyright Hero was created by me, Lukas Trötzmüller. I've been developing and selling downloadable software since 2010. Piracy always had a big influence on my sales, revenue would drop whenever a new pirated version became available.
I then developed a system to find and remove the pirated files from the internet. It solved the problem, sales increased and remained stable ever since. That system was soon used by other creators - not only software companies, but also book and video course authors.
