Proven strategies to help you remove from the internet adult videos you had made earlier in your life
If say, 10 or 15 years ago, for whatever reason, you agreed to make a sex video in return for money, and that video has in the meantime been published on the internet, you might be able to have the video and any related video clips deleted from each and every website that hosts it.
At the time, when you agreed to participate in making the sex video, you might have thought of it as being a matter of little long term importance. Most actors who performed in adult films ten years ago or longer hardly anticipated that their erotic films would be cut into dozens of short clips and published and republished endless times by complete strangers who had nothing to do with creating the films. It is likely that before the production of a pornographic film you agreed to assign all your intellectual property rights to a production company who you thought would keep matters under control. The assignment of your rights to the porn video might not be valid.
What you probably did not anticipate at the time of making the firm is that it would replicate itself on the internet, often together with insulting and humiliating titles and texts. Also, if to go by at least some of our clients, at the time, starting a family and having children was the last thing on your mind.
Now, these porn films are following you whenever you go and particularly if you are planning to start a family, you probably wish you never made them in the first place or at least you wish there was a way to make them go away. How hard is it to remove a sexually explicit video you've made in the past from the internet?
If you're a celebrity or a video you participated in had become popular, it seems at first an impossible task to scrub all traces of the video clips from the internet. Unfortunately, bootleg versions of your sex videos are likely to surface from time to time so if you will need do take a stance and decide to be ruthless with your efforts to completely clean up the internet of them.
People who already downloaded the films can upload clips at any time they want but the fact of the matter is that the more available a film is online, the more likely it is to be copied and uploaded by opportunists. At the same time, erotic videos, which are rarely found online are usually far less likely to be copied. Think of it as a graffiti effect. A wall full of graffiti is much more likely to get more gratify than a clean wall.
This is probably to do with the message that you send out to members of the public and to website operators about your willingness or unwillingness to tolerate republication. So how can you remove porn videos from the internet? Obviously, if you created the original video yourself, you own the copyright to it so we can assert this right on your behalf and usually very quickly have the porn videos removed from nearly all websites.
If somebody else produced the video, we will ask them to allow us to buy the rights or at least some of the rights to the videos, enough to enable us to assert intellectual property rights on your behalf and demand a permanent removal. Additionally, we will use various privacy laws to try and persuade website operators to delete videos from their websites. Most do agree but if they don’t we will then approach the search engines under privacy and data protection laws and they are likely to be sympathetic.
If you are a celebrity and can afford it, we will threaten website operators with blocking injunctions, which means we can have their websites completely blocked by internet service providers unless they agree to voluntarily delete your adult video from their websites. Most if not all will not be interested in losing traffic so they will just remove the videos in question.
Many operators of adult websites will honour a request to remove an image or a video even if you don’t own the copyright to it. Finally, in some cases we have been able to trademark our client’s stage name and use intellectual property laws to persuade website operators to remove our clients’ videos from their websites.
