SPOTLIGHT

You Create, We Protect

You Create, We Protect!” say Cam Model Protection, who believe they have all the solutions to industry’s dark exploitations.

Speaking for cam models and content creators universally, all we want is to work without stress.

Anyone joining the adult industry will have to understand that the world wide web is an open and exposed forum.

Where there are performances or content of a sexual nature, there’s a high risk it could be stolen and exploited for gain to another.

As such, identity theft and copyright infringement are prolific and creators are hot targets.

There are pirate sites who screen record and repost performer’s shows in order to profit financially.

There are fake ‘catfish’ accounts which use the identity of creators in attempt to scam their fans.

All of this is completely illegal. But do you think the pirates care? Do you think they co-operate?

Of course not! They are relentless and will never stop.

Knowing these crimes are so rife can be unnerving for cam models.

I have known many to drop out of the industry as a result of the damaging effects it’s had, or fears it could have, to personal lives, income or brand reputation.

Netherlands-based company Cam Model Protection are the cutting-edge player in the world of identity protection and online content removal.

The company, which was founded in 2014, have clients in 42 countries and a team of 41 highly motivated, expertly trained employees over 6 countries.

Their job is to fight internet piracy 24/7 and they do that better than anyone.

Cam Model Protection believe their counter-attack strategies against internet pirates sees the majority of infrigements against cam models and creators exterminated.

Their service enables creators to increase their revenue by ensuring their content is not available for free on illegal websites.

In turn, this increases sales on the creator’s paid platforms, which they inform me, is anything up to 15-20%.

You Create, We Protect! It’s your body, your creativity, inspiration and hard work.

We understand better than anyone that it’s frustrating when others are making money from your content.

Cam Model Protection

Exactly that – they understand the headaches. For many adult performers and creators, privacy exposure and stolen content are the only downsides to working in this industry.

Cam Model Protection share this valuable insight into what they do to protect individuals and ensure brand integrities are maintained:

What makes us different from other content removal services is we have our own unique software and perform manual searches by trained investigators.

We can get behind sites hosting content behind paywalls, which cannot be done with automated searches.

Our discrete team which includes ethical hackers, have many different skills for getting sites to cooperate and remove content.

Where sites don’t cooperate, we are able to delist the content from Google and other search engines.

Cam Model Protection

This is an extraoridinarily good feature of Cam Model Protection. Even in cases where sites do not comply, they are still able to get images, links, videos and downloads removed from Google and other major search engines.

As a result, the stolen content is no longer discoverable if the model or creator’s name is searched.

For those with privacy concerns and region blocks, this cleanup of ‘incriminating’ evidence serves as ‘damage limitation’ and for many this proves a life saver.

At Cam Model Protection, we have four core values that we strive to work for every day: Trustworthy. Dedication. Service. Quality.

If you want to know how the dark side of the industry tried to get under my skin, and did not succeed to defeat me; read on:

My heart shattered when I first discovered my privacy had been exposed as a cam model. Pages of thumbnail images and copies my live stream videos exposed on Google!

I was only working on one site but the infringements linked me to hundreds of different sites, giving the impression I was obtainable across multiple platforms, including dodgy looking porn tubes.

Some sites were selling content of me that I was not even sell myself. This was infuriating and caused me anxiety. 

Thanks to Cam Model Protection, my fears soon went away. Their team are empathetic, quick to respond, like an emergency service!

Signing up to their Superstar package was like taking out an insurance policy. It proved excellent value for money as it reinstated my confidence. As such I was able to continue to work online.

I fly their flag because they have done so much to fight internet piracy on my behalf. Without this company, I would have been one who dropped away.

My aim is to get the message out to all models and creators this problem has affected, past and present. There is hope for you too, if you put your faith in them. Invest a little of your cam income in the service each month and the results, along with the peace of mind you get, are priceless.

As a cam model and content creator, taking out the Superstar plan was the best thing I ever did.

Protect your privacy on cam

Protect your privacy on cam. Online safety is a top priority for any cam model.

The subject of protecting privacy on cam is often a deal breaker for new models coming into the industry, especialy if they have significant privacy concerns.

With internet piracy and online hackers relentless this day and age, a cam model can never be certain their content will not get misued.

Any Tom, Dick or Harry have the means to take video because they have this technology on their smartphone at home. Add to this, there are bots and trawlers on a constant drive.

I shall be completely up front about the fact webcam shows do often get screen recorded. These are sometimes posted elsewhere (I know, because I have been on the receiving end).

Despite DMCA* being in place, there is nothing you or I can do to stop this. Right here, I need to lay out what’s what and manage your expectations.

While it is worth mentioning that the more high profile the model on cam, the more likely they will be a target to internet pirates.

Despite this, unknown entities can be targeted too, especially is the nature of their shows is X-rated.

Now for the good news… There are steps that you as a cam model can take to become savvy, protect your privacy on cam and lessen the risk of unwanted exposure.

Always use a different name on cam and never give out your real name.

Never give out your exact location.

Do not link any social media accounts for your cam model name under any email address or phone number linked to your family and friends. This includes Instagram, TikTok and Facebook.

This will avoid your cam model social media bringing up people in your personal contacts as suggested contacts / who to follow. Vice versa this helps avoid your personal contacts easily finding your cam model social media.

If you want to avoid identity theft (where your images are reposted under fake profiles), stay off the socials altogether.

Look for a webcam site that offers a DMCA takedown service for their cam models. This is a service whereby they serve DMCA takedown notices to sites that host copyrighted content which originates from their own watermarked site.

Put a disclaimer on your cam model profile that states your content is DMCA protected. Mention any unauthorised use of your content being a criminal offence. This will help serve as a deterrant.

Join a site that offers a region blocking option. This means you can exclude people in your home county, state or entire country from accessing your profile if you wish to. This option makes it much more difficult for your family and friends network to discover you online.

Agencies exist who you can pay to scour the internet for stolen content. They monitor and remove leaked photos and videos for a monthly fee.

The downside is for many cam models works out expensive because this service comes at a price.

For professional models who put in the hours hours and make more money, the service is value for money. This service is worth its weight in gold for the peace of mind that it provides.

One such agency I highly recommend, is Cam Model Protection. Read my article here about how they’ve worked with me during my time spent on webcam.

If you find any leaked content, you can submit content removal requests yourself. First port of call is follow the offending sites’ DMCA takedown procedure. Usually this involves emailing them and providing the link, however it can be touch and go.

Many porn sites display contact details for DMCA takedown requests, others don’t. They will either respond and be helpful, or not respond. For those that are not helpful, you and submit removal requests directly to Google.

This this is only possible where the adult nature content comes up in Google search. Google cannot remove it from the site source but they can remove links, images and videos from the Google search results.

There is more detail about the process in the Google search help, here. Self-removal of content can be a painstaking process and take several weeks, because of the sheer volume of requests they get.

If the thought of leaked content bothers you and you want to save on costs, you are at least aware this is an option.

Think about the risk versus reward ratio and how much of a big deal privacy is to you.

Camming is not right for you if there are major privacy concerns. “Major” meaning you are anxious to the point your life would be ruined if anyone finds out you work on cam.

The internet is the internet. I cannot promise you will never be a target. The risk is far greater with live stream sites than it is on private sites.

In turn, far greater is the earning potential on live stream sites versus private sites also.

I know cam models who dropped out of the industry on discovering their content was stolen. They struggle to deal with it and the anxiety of it happening again gets to them (completely understandable).

If the privacy concern is moderate to mild, follow the above steps and you will be well on track. The idea is to lock yourself down to some considerable degree.

Always remember there is no 100% guarantee that it still won’t happen, but it will lessen the risk.

If there are no significant privacy concerns and like some of the top cam models you take the view that people sharing your content serves as a promotional campaign, then boldly proceed.

If the internet pirates are hosting your content elsewhere, they’re generating greater awareness of your existance!

Whatever your level of comfort and perception where privacy and protection is concerned, please do still adopt the principles of points 1 and 2 in my tips above.

NEVER give out your name, personal information or location to anybody you speak to online. This is for your own safety.

Now you know what goes on and how to protect your privacy on cam, go forth and shape your cam model profile. Adjust your online activities according to your preferences and you’ll be fine!
