For all Sex Workers following me, I decided to create a post regarding Copyright infringements. Sadly, this is a common thing in porn biz. The first purchase on a clip website is usually a person who’s gonna steal the clip, upload it to filehoster and spread the link on shady websites with 5 pop-up ads opening before anybody can access these links in the first place.
I put a lot of money, effort and energy in producing porn. Cameras, Sex Toys, Computer, Software, Hosting, all of it costs money. And not just a bit. I paid 700€ for my camera, 200€ for Editing Software and another 700€ for my fucking machine. And how much f****ing time do I spend with editing my clips, uploading them to porn websites and new platforms again because banks still discriminate sex work in 2022. And yes, I thought about stopping all of porn because of this.
I am tired of black hats making money from stealing other people’s hard work.
Whatever, ranted enough. Here’s a tutorial on how to take your stolen content down. It might look a bit long in the beginning, however once you know how it goes, it’s about 2 minutes per website:
find pirated clips / recordings
This is rather easy. Just go to Google, Bing or DuckDuckGo (or all of these three) and search for your stage name and siterip, recording or similar. For example:
- daisygoesdeep siterip
- daisydeep porn
- daisygoesdeep livestreams
- daisygoesdeep recordings
The results should look sth like this:
get the source links
This is a bit nerdy, but not too difficult. Install JDownloader. It’s a software mostly used for downloading pirated content, however we can use its link-grabbing features for our own purpose to fetch all the links, so we can take them down. Don’t worry, the software itself is legal.
Change one setting in JDownloader: remove all tick boxes despite Data in the User Interface Settings:
This will output the actual hoster links instead of referrer, source or container links. We need the Data links for a Copyright Claim. Black Hats try to hide them behind referrers or in containers. However, with this setting we reach their sensitive spot 😉
Now, go to one of the pirate websites and copy the link in the address bar (for example https://siterips.cc/onlyfans-com-daisy-deep-daisygoesdeep-siterip-2021/ ) JDownloader should automatically grab all links. If not, click on “Add New Links” in the LinkGrabber:
In the pop-up, paste the link and click on Continue
Now it should look similar to this:
What we’re looking for are files bigger than 3 MiB usually, especially photos and videos. Just sort by size, select all the big size files (hold down shift) and with a right click -> Properties -> Show Download URLs we get all the source links
In the new small pop-up, select all links with Control + A (on Macs: ⌘ + A), again do a right click and click “Copy URLs”
They are now copied to your clipboard. Done.
Sending an abuse complaint
This is rather quick. Most hosters take Copyright claims seriously and take the content down within 24 hours. Find the abuse mail address of the hoster somewhere in their footer links. Some of them are:
Now simply write a mail to them and paste all the links with ctrl + V (on Macs ⌘ + V). You can use this example text:
Dear Sir or Madam,
I own all rights on the images and footage listed below. Take it down within 24 hours or I’ll take further actions if needed.
Link to copyrighted content: onlyfans.com/your-name-here
– Your Stage Name
Always include a link to the copyrighted content. This speeds up the process.
Until now, I never had to contact a lawyer and had taken down all content within maximum a week. In most cases, I get a reply within an hour that looks like this:
Some hosters might want you to confirm your identity (bullsh*t!). DO NOT EVER SEND THEM YOUR PASSPORT, LEGAL NAME OR ANY OTHER PRIVATE DATA!
If this does not work, use Cloudflare’s Copyright Report function. Most illegal content is protected using Cloudflare’s Content Distribution Network and using their function you will get the name of the hoster and their abuse mail address. DO NOT USE YOUR REAL NAME OR ADDRESS ON CLOUDFLARE BECAUSE IT GETS SHARED WITH THE FRAUDSTERS. ONLY USE YOUR STAGE NAME, PORN MAIL ADDRESS AND A FAKE POSTAL ADDRESS
Using Cloudflare’s Report function I actually made some interesting findings:
Webzilla – email@example.com
k2s cc (Keep2Share)
Alexhost – firstname.lastname@example.org
IP Volume – email@example.com
Melbicom via CryptoServers org – firstname.lastname@example.org
Zomro B.V. – email@example.com
Scalaxy B.V. – firstname.lastname@example.org
As you can see, it’s only a few webhosters that host our stolen content. Most of them are by the way based in the Netherlands and not in countries that are tough to reach like China or Russia. If we keep sending copyright claims to Cloudflare and these hosters, we might even achieve that some websites will get taken down completely or their networks getting banned from the cloudflare network which is typically the end for such websites. I have also threatened Cloudflare with further legal steps and lawsuits if they continue to protect such illegally hosted content.
some last words
Doing this might seem like a lot of unnecessary effort. Loyal fans wouldn’t use these websites either. Yes that’s so true, however I’m simply pissed off that black hats (What’s a black hat?) make profits from my work.
