The GrayZone Difference
We have been on the frontlines from the very beginning. Before anyone else, we realized the opportunities and challenges faced with the growing online community and knew that digital downloads would be the way of the future. In our 26+ years in business, we’ve built a large network of partnerships with international law enforcement agencies, website owners, Internet service providers and experts in computer technology and anti-piracy.
While GrayZone stays on top of all technological advancements that can impact online piracy and copyright matters, we choose by design to maintain a low profile on the Internet. Unlike our competitors, you won’t find us tweeting or otherwise trumpeting our connections, affiliations and conquests. We recognize the delicacy and sensitivity required to protect intellectual property while not threatening promotional efforts or jeopardizing public goodwill.
We can provide you with a declassified list of file-sharing websites and other online entities with which we have an ongoing relationship. These valuable partnerships, built upon many years of mutual trust, allow us to quickly remove infringing material without the normal wait times. We are the fastest at achieving results when it comes to removing pirated material, keeping the problem from spreading further. When it comes to downloadable or illegally streaming material online, time is of the essence!
