Company Adds an Additional 500,000 New Copyrights with Continued Expansion in Music, Films, and Books.
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Rightscorp (RIHT), the leading provider of monetization services for artists and holders of copyrighted Intellectual Property (IP), announced today that it has added an additional 500,000 new copyrights for representation, bringing its total ownership portfolio to over 1.5 million copyrights.
Rightscorp has been actively increasing the number of copyrights that it can protect and monetize by constantly adding new copyrights into its system. Rightscorp now represents over 1.5 million copyrights. The Company’s proprietary patent-pending copyright infringement monitoring software protects copyright owners against digital loss and the unauthorized online distribution of content including music, movies, games, books, software, and other digital content.
“We are building momentum as the most effective piracy solution for this industry as we cross the threshold from 1 million to more than 1.5 million copyrights,” said Christopher Sabec, CEO of Rightscorp. “This is a clear milestone as it directly impacts our growth as we continue to expand in the market. We are now tracking infringements on award-winning films, over 10 tracks in the Billboard Hot 100, a best selling author, and we are in discussions with many more content owners. This is a testament that we are recognized as leaders in the protection and monetization of copyrighted IP. Our proven business strategy is attracting copyright holders to seek us out in the ongoing battle of copyright infringement and our recently reported triple digit revenue growth shows that our model works.”
