Free Speech Coalition (FSC) announced today that several tubesites have agreed to implement the FSC’s Anti-Piracy Action Program (APAP) and use the program’s software technology to flag potentially infringing content and help prevent users from sharing material that is not legal for them to share.

The tubesites that have agreed to participate include PornHub, Tube8, SpankWire, KeezMovies and ExtremeTube; all part of the Manwin Group of companies.

Two more tubesites, XVideo and XXNX.com,  also have signed on to FSC-APAP after agreeing to join with a group of studios that includes Titan Media, Adam & Eve, Evil Angel, Digital Playground, Hustler Video, Raging Stallion Studios, Wicked Pictures, New Sensations and Zero Tolerance. The tubesites and studios arrived at an agreement to join together, as a group, to help prevent the sharing of infringing content.

FSC Executive Director Diane Duke acknowledges that the tubesites have been looked at as the industry’s most egregious offenders of copyright infringement, but said that the development marks a significant shift in revenue options for content producers, as well as an opportunity for tubesite operators to avoid infringing activity.

“Working with content providers, FSC-APAP has provided a unique opportunity for the adult industry to come together and fight piracy in a coordinated manner,” said Duke. “What is even more exciting, we have been able to bring tubesites to the table to be part of the solution, instead of all-of-the-problem.”

Digital Playground founder and FSC-APAP participant Joone commented on the development with the tubesites and said, “This will have a profound change on illegal use of our content on tube sites. For the first time I feel we have a very good chance to start minimizing piracy.”

“The result I have [had with APAP] been very effective,” Joone added. “I highly recommend all content producers to use this system.”

FSC-APAP Administrator and attorney Gill Sperlein emphasized that the FSC APAP program is accessible for all producers, regardless of the size of their operation.

“One thing I want to make clear is that is program is not just for big producers,” Sperlein said. “The program is priced so that any producer, no matter how small can afford to join. Information on the bulletin boards about this program is about 50 percent inaccurate. I encourage anyone with questions about the program to contact me, or the FSC directly.
