Copyright Infringement Portal

The Copyright Infringement Portal is our independent online system to help combat digital piracy. It identifies infringing links and streamlines the takedown notice creation process. If you've found your books being shared online without your permission the CIP could help you get them removed from the web.

What is the Portal?

The Portal is an online takedown service to identify and report infringing links. The flexible and user-friendly service enables publishers to easily find online piracy, quickly send DMCA compliant takedown notices to the infringing sites and to monitor the compliance of the sites.

Rights owners can easily search actively infringing sites in one go as the system continually searches pirate sites throughout the day. All that needs to be done by the user is check and send.

  • Using the Portal saves time and increases efficiency
  • Track where and when your content is being shared online
  • Remove easy-to-access links and push casual downloaders towards legitimate access methods
  • Contribute towards industry anti-piracy efforts through the aggregation of (anonymised) Portal data to identify major sites requiring more targeted action
