permanent shutdown

We focus on the hard to reach, non-compliant, and notorious DMCA and Trademark violators.

Leveraging our expertise in hosting, project management, intelligence, and cyber investigations, we are able to completely un-mask violator identities, expose their entire operation, create effective shutdown strategies, and coordinate joint efforts.

Our assertive action plans are designed to comprehensively and continually interrupt every aspect of a violator’s business.

A typical shutdown campaign will consist of the following phases:

  • 1

    Investigation

    Utilize repurposed intelligence tools and techniques to un-mask human identities, reveal physical locations, expose hidden infrastructure, and catalog vulnerabilities.

  • 2

    Design

    Create a comprehensive strategy that simultaneously and continually disrupts the violator’s ability to react and operate.

  • 3

    Coordination

    Support the law firms that are engaged in our shutdown campaign.

  • 4

    Monitoring

    Provide continual change support throughout the campaign.

  • 5

    Completion

    After action report to Rightsholder and continual campaign optimization.
