From the leaders in Anti-Piracy
Our service continues the mission Takedown Piracy started 10 years ago, which is to protect the adult industry from digital piracy. We use an automated visual Content Identification System that scans over 80+ adult tube sites for stolen clips, so that pirated content can be found and removed immediately. We have the largest anti-piracy tube coverage in the industry due to the unique design of our system (no tube site integration required). To-date, we have removed of over 2.5 million full-length pirated scenes for our studio customers, and have wrecked pirate communities across the web.
We recognize that the Adult Industry is rapidly changing, with more and more adult models, actresses, and cam performers shooting and producing their own content. ClipSentry is built on the same underlying technology as Takedown Piracy, but is tailored specifically for these Artists and the clip stores that support them. We work directly with the clip stores to digitally fingerprint a model's content, so that we can find and detect it with the largest Content ID system in the industry. Once a model's pirated content is found, we then work tirelessly to get it removed using whatever means necessary.
We also believe transparency is key, and we are the only anti-piracy service that offers a web portal built specifically for Artists - you'll see exactly where and how much your content is being pirated. No one in the industry polices content like we do or has services like us. This is a passion for us.How we're different
Designed for models, artists, and independent producers who shoot and produce their own content
Easy to use web portal that shows exactly where an Artist's stolen clips are and what we've removed for them
We work directly with the clip store for setup and integration - All an Artist needs to do is login and set whitelistings
Advanced Content ID System (ACIS) used by large and small adult studios alike since 2015.. Removed over 2.5 million pirated scenes
Passion, Creativity, and Experience
Takedown Piracy has been a leading anti-piracy service in the Adult Industry for over 10 years and works with some of the largest adult production studios in the world. We are experts in DMCA takedown and are not afraid to use any means necessary to get a site to comply with our takedown requests. We ensure that sites truly comply with a takedown request in a timely fashion, that they follow a “a repeat infringer” policy, and that they do not use illegal practices such as re-uploads or uploads from fake/system users. For sites that do not comply, we have developed effective strategies for dealing with them over the years.
We developed our Content ID system based on lessons learned from an industry program launched years ago that relied on tube/streaming video sites being “partners” (FSC-APAP). This partnership required the tube site to load and integrate the Content ID software and fingerprint database directly into their systems, while giving the site operator complete control of how, when, and where it was run. This system was only adopted by a few large tube sites who already fully and rapidly responded to DMCA requests, so it's effects were marginal at best, and it never really gained traction. It's no surpise that most tube sites have zero interest in installing software that will greatly limit their revenues, so it never really caught on. There are some competing services that follow a similar site-integration/Content ID model as APAP, and try to make up for it's short-comings by using keyword search scripts (which pirates already know how to easily defeat). Also no suprise, these services are having only slightly better results than APAP.
True Content ID
Visual Content ID is the most effective method in finding and identifying pirated clips on tube sites - but it must work on a wide population of tube/streaming sites and not be limited to a partnership (we support the most sites in the industry and by a wide margin). We designed our system from the ground up to run completely independent – we build scanners for each individual site that we monitor that allows us pull and scan streaming video content, just like we were a user of the site. This allows us to rapidly take on new sites as their traffic rises and they become a threat, while not being blocked from seeing the “whole picture” of the piracy taking place. This gives us a big and fast whack-a-mole hammer that has massive coverage - and it works.
To date, our Content ID system has visually scanned over 77 million videos (approx. 1 million per month), and has identified the copyright holder for 1 out of every 4 of those clips. We use advanced algorithms and AI techniques to counteract visual distortions, clipping, cropping, low sample rates, and other tactics pirates use that allow them to get past most other Content ID systems. Our system also stores the digital fingerprints for every clip we scan, effectively creating a digital record, which allows us to go “back in time” and find older hits as we add new source fingerprints – we are the only service that does this.
Artist Reporting Portal
A key goal of this service is to provide the Independent Artist/Producer with transparency into where their content is being pirated. This knowledge can be critical in how they promote their content, while also giving a model insight into how the clip store and ClipSentry is acting as an anti-piracy agent on their behalf. Through the Artist Portal, we provide users with a detailed Dashboard, Graphs, and Reports that show exactly where we’ve found and removed pirated content that belongs to them. We also provide a function to report piracy links directly to us, and to setup a “whitelist”, so that we don’t accidently remove promotional content.
We offer the Artist Portal as a white-label, and will work with the clip store technical team to ensure that we provide the best experience possible to the Artist.Contact Us

We can't say yet... More to follow!
Fill out the Contact form above, and we'll reach right back out to you. We'll want to know some basic stats on your store, such as the number of clips we'd need to protect. From there, we can provide you with a detailed quote, and start fingerprinting your content.
We feel we have the best anti-piracy services in the industry and are willing to back this statement up. We love doing free "bake-offs", where we will fingerprint a portion of your content, and run it through our Content ID system. If the results we generate are no better than your current service, then there's no cost or risk to you.
We're working on this, and we'd appreciate any feedback or suggestions to make this an easy process for you.
You're right in that piracy can't be completely eliminated, but it can be effectively policed. We have countless testimonials from studios who saw an increase in sales and member sign-ups shortly after using our service. If you don't police your piracy, it will eat at your revenues and make efforts like promo clips pointless.
If your content is represented by a clip store that we partner with, you're already setup and there's nothing else you need to do. Otherwise, feel free to reach out to the stores you work with and tell them about us :)
