How to Remove Copyrighted Content

There’s no denying that the ease of sharing has changed the Internet. The ease to which one can copy/paste or right click and save an image to save on their own blog is too hard to ignore.

This has given rise to a new problem that especially concerns content creators: sharing of copyrighted content without credit or fair compensation.

Sharing copyrighted content is no joke with fines that can go up in the hundreds of thousands but it’s also a white collar crime that’s offten hard to detect. In fact, most small-time publishers are almost counting on that.

They never believe their tiny blog or website will be taken to court over a couple of images. And they’re not completely wrong. The likelihood of being taken to court, with thousands in legal expenses, is, frankly, small.

However, with new services popping up like Copyright Crackdown to remove copyrighted content, this number is sure to go up. For example, Copyright Crackdown promises to monitor copyright infringement and report it to content creators.

So, if you’ve been sharing unzuthorized copyrighted images, be warned. Spending a few dollars for a legitimate license to use the images may save you thousands in the long run.
