Redwood City, CA, United States, 2009/07/22 - Attributor announced that global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa and JWb) has selected its anti-piracy service as a tool to identify unlawful use of its books, e-Books, and other content online.
Attributor announced today that global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa and JWb) has selected its anti-piracy service as a tool to identify unlawful use of its books, e-Books, and other content online and prevent use of the infringed copies. Attributor’s technology monitors more than 35 billion pages, including hosting sites and link farms, quickly identifying unauthorized copies and taking action to remove them.
“When Wiley content appears, without permission, on Web sites where users share the content free of charge or sell it without authorization, authors are cheated of their rightful compensation for their work. This affects us all, since the loss of compensation is a disincentive to authors’ creativity and innovation,” said Roy Kaufman, Legal Director, Wiley-Blackwell. “Wiley’s agreement with Attributor will greatly enhance our ongoing pursuit of anyone who willfully infringe upon our intellectual property and will enable us to cost-effectively scale our anti-piracy efforts across the Web.”
“Wiley has a strong history of combating piracy, and our world-class technology will increase their effectiveness,” said Jim Pitkow, Attributor CEO and co-founder. “Attributor’s automated solution proactively detects infringed content and helps publishers stay a step ahead of online book pirates.”
