SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rightscorp (RIHT) , the leading provider of monetization services for artists and holders of copyrighted Intellectual Property (IP), announced today that it has launched its Streaming Rights Monitoring (SRM) service for broadcasters and content owners who want to prevent unauthorized rebroadcasts of their content. The service includes optional 365x24x7 monitoring of mobile streaming networks and associated data collection and reporting services.
Christopher Sabec, Rightscorp CEO, stated, "We believe that creators and owners of content should have the right to determine how their content is distributed. Our new SRM service is designed to assist rights holders in retaining and exercising their rights to determine how their content is distributed and monetized."
Robert Steele, Rightscorp President added, "The piracy of the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao boxing match illustrated new challenges for content owners to get compensated for their content. Our system sees hundreds of millions of events of illegal content distribution around the world in which the content owner is not paid, while other participants in the piracy ecosystem are making money. As cable subscription, PPV, and VOD revenues continue to decrease, unauthorized uses where the owner and creator receives no compensation are literally exploding. We are excited about bringing new solutions to content creators."
