The steady rise of copyright infringement and trademark counterfeiting requires active intervention. Digital piracy results in annual losses of billions of dollars, tens to hundreds of thousands jobs worldwide, and the expansion of organized crime funded by their ill-gotten gains. The U.S. government as well as the EU recommend that copyright and trademark holders take measures to protect their intellectual property in the face of these widespread and complex problems.
Other organizations involved in anti-piracy measures largely prefer to utilize consumer protection and education campaigns in efforts to reduce infringement on the internet. These other organizations are often entrenched in their decision-making processes that proactive measures to fight digital piracy are too expensive or take too long to complete. Contra Piracy arises to fill this gap as well as engage in education and awareness efforts.
Based in Switzerland, Contra Piracy is an international association of independent members, including technology service providers, law firms, and intellectual property owners. Founded in May 2009, Contra Piracy provides a neutral platform for intellectual property owner members to access the synergies of our technology service provider and law firm members. This allows our intellectual property owner members to gain immediate assistance in the fight against piracy.
The Contra Piracy network of technology service providers and law firms are professionals and companies with experience in fighting piracy on the internet. We emphasize the sharing of knowledge and expertise to provide the best possible leverage to our intellectual property owner members in combatting digital piracy.
Contra Piracy is constantly engaged in various projects to serve our clients, and continues to develop strategies as new challenges arise. Collectively we are engaged in monitoring and tracking sources of digital piracy, prosecuting civil and criminal infringement lawsuits, collaborating with government agencies, as well as education efforts and public relations.
Contra Piracy is the sensible solution for companies and individuals seeking to protect their intellectual property rights.
