How piracy works

Pirated content rapidly spreads online: when a pirated copy is first made available on a pirate website, links are quickly shared on referral sites, causing the illegal availability to spread fast and exponentially.

Link Busters

A simple metaphor

Imagine owning a brick-and-mortar shop that is surrounded with other shops offering the same product and using the same advertising. Not an ideal situation to run a shop - especially if the product is the same.

How Link-Busters helps

Pirated content rapidly spreads online: when a pirated copy is first made available on a pirate website, links are quickly shared on referral sites, causing the illegal availability to spread fast and exponentially.

Link-Busters detects and removes infringing links where possible

When pirated files are posted on sites, Link-Busters will detect these infringing links and contact those sites requesting that the content is removed as soon as possible ( in most cases within 6 to 24 hours).

Link Busters

There are simply much less infringements to be found for our content. Author complaints have dropped significantly.

Removing links from search engines

In case of non-removing websites, Link-Busters service can ‘quarantine' those pages, by removing them from popular Search Engines’ results (such as Google). While a few pirated copies may remain available on the Web, the majority of opportunistic downloaders will find a dead end.

Link Busters

We are seeing at least 400% more removals than previous years: Link-Busters is a far more complete service in our experience.

Consumers will 
find your site again

With Link-Busters protection, pirated copies do no longer spread exponentially. Consumers will struggle to find pirated content and will instead find sites where they can buy (or legally consume) your content. Sales increase accordingly.
