Piracy is an ever growing problem. We have prepared several resources for you to use in case your material is ever illegally shared. The goal with these resources is not to make money from your releases, but simply connect you to various agencies and links that are working as hard as possible to prevent material that you deliver to us for distribution from being pirated. Check out the agencies below and feel free to contact us for assistance!
If you prefer the “Do It Yourself” approach, then the following is for you. Millions of songs are searchable illegally via Google, Bing, AOL. and Soundcloud. From blog links, to songs ripped off and placed on fake Soundcloud accounts, these massive companies have a lot to deal with. To help them in combating piracy, you can click on the corresponding logo(s) below to find info on how to get your infringed material taken down. All of this is free and can mean that your material will be taken down in as little as 24 hours!
In addition to the above, many file sharing websites such as Mediafire, Hulkshare, ZippyShare, and Rapidshare are breeding grounds for Piracy. We’ve put up direct links allow you to report a claim in case your song, movie, and/or ebook is ever infringed upon! Click a logo below and you can follow the steps through each site to ensure your material is taken down off the file sharing website. (If there is a file sharing site that is known for having a lot of piracy and they are not listed, don’t hesitate to report it to us!
Last but not least, if there is a website, blog, overseas retailer, and/or file sharing website that is illegally sharing your material, we recommend you send them a Ceise & Desist letter.

Before you send this letter, we recommend you do seek legal representation if you wish to send any legally binding hard copy to any website or brand.
