What We Offer to Content Owners

The FSC collaborates with developers of the most advanced technologies available for locating, monitoring and protecting your content online, attorneys who are experts in Intellectual Property rights enforcement and content owners who are concerned about the impact of rampant content piracy on the adult entertainment industry. This multifaceted collaboration has put the FSC in a uniquely strong position to create the Anti-Piracy Action Program (APAP), an effort that affords content owners the opportunity to create an industry standard for infringement detection and lawsuit preparation.

By making APAP the industry standard for adult content protection, rights holders can push operators of user-generated content ('UGC') sites to work within their acceptable use policies for content, and give such site operators incentive to more effectively self-police the content uploaded to their sites.

What We Offer to Tube Owners

Through the Anti-Piracy Action Program (APAP), FSC is offering a standard means for content owners to detect infringement, and seamlessly replace the infringing content with acceptable promotional and advertising materials. APAP takes into consideration the risk that user-generated content ('UGC') sites face in accepting uploads of content, and the need to monetize the traffic to their sites while staying in compliance with the law. As some mainstream UGC sites have done, adult tube sites and Chatterbate cams can receive a revenue share on the promotional materials that are swapped into place once infringement has been detected by the software used in the APAP monitoring effort.
