Operation Minerva Rolls Out To Combat Deepfakes And Revenge Porn

Takedown Piracy, the leading firm dedicated to protecting content owners from the damaging effects of piracy, has just launched Operation Minerva, which was created to combat Deepfakes and revenge porn. This service is available now to anyone and everyone, persons of celebrity or non-celebrity status.

Operation Minerva, which is named after the Roman goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare, targets the makers of Deepfakes or those who digitally alter images or video of actual people onto copyrighted content (often of pornographic nature) in order to embarrass, extort, defraud or otherwise besmirch someone. It also targets those who traffic revenge porn or actual sex videos which they use to extort or cause damage to a person’s reputation.

As recently reported by CNN, Brookings and Fortune, sophisticated imaging tools and software have made the existence of Deepfake videos commonplace, targeting celebrities or those in the public eye. Today, anyone with a degree of understanding of these tools can manipulate content and insert anyone’s face to a seemingly realistic situation.

Revenge porn is also on the rise, which is genuine footage of people having sex that is published without their consent as a way to exact revenge, extort or humiliate them.

With its unique digital fingerprinting technology, Operation Minerva is able to identify Deepfakes and revenge porn on any of the video sharing sites they already monitor, including over 80 tube sites. If a Deepfake or revenge porn video is uploaded to a private, or non-monitored site, such as Vimeo, the victim can provide a link to the footage, and then once it has been digitally fingerprinted, it can be traced, and removed anywhere on the internet.

Many states have laws against revenge porn and those impacted by it are encouraged to contact an attorney in conjunction with retaining Operation Minerva.

Established in 2009, Takedown Piracy is the leading protector of digital copyright infringement. It currently represents more than 40 adult studios along with other firms, offering content owners the ability to protect their copyrighted property by aggressively identifying and removing pirated content. So far, an estimated 85 million infringements have been removed by Takedown Piracy, with an additional 2.5 million tube videos removed through digital fingerprinting to date.
