Welcome to Piracy Monitor
Digital media piracy is the greatest enemy to creative professionals, consumers, rights-holders and their distribution partners the world over. To help them preserve their abilities to make a living and maintain operations, Piracy Monitor provides an authoritative resource so they can better understand the risks associated with piracy, the technologies that help detect it, and about available countermeasures and practices against it.
Piracy Monitor also conducts the Video Security Summit, an annual online event devoted to piracy/anti-piracy and cybersecurity. Both are produced by Advanced Media Strategies LLC. Steve Hawley is Managing Director.
