SAN CLEMENTE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 3, 2017) - Image Protect Inc. (
Image Protect is set to begin immediate monitoring of the Capital Art collection for online copyright infringement.
"The Capital Art Collection, with its focus on iconic imagery, is a world-renowned artistic offering. In this celebrity-driven marketplace, we're proud to work with Capital Art and help defend against the growing epidemic of unauthorized use of images across the Internet," said Jonathan Thomas, COO of Image Protect, Inc.
Last year, Google received just over 75 million takedown requests related to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in the month of March alone. That represented a new record for such requests, as content owners sought to keep pirate websites out of search results related to leaked album downloads, movies, and other media.
The rate at which such requests have grown over time is truly staggering. At present, Google is asked to remove an average of 100k 'Pirate Links' per hour in any given 24-hour period.
