PallyCon Anti Piracy Service Guide
PallyCon Anti Piracy service offers global monitoring for illegal content leakage, takedown notice, and tracking of leakers through forensic watermarking integration.
This document describes how to register content to be monitored, view monitoring results, and request takedown through PallyCon Console site.
Anti Piracy Workflow
The diagram below is the workflow when using PallyCon Forensic Watermarking and Anti Piracy service at the same time.
- Register the metadata (title, type, etc.) of the content to be monitored in the Anti Piracy service. You can make a reservation in advance by setting the
- Apply FWM pre-processing and embedding (watermark insertion) process to the original video and serve it to the end user.
- After monitoring for illegal leaks is started, you can check the collected results (links to illegal sites) and request takedown automatically or manually.
- In the case of content with forensic watermarking applied, you can request watermark detection by selecting a specific illegal link.
- For leaked copies that have been requested to detect watermark, PallyCon Anti Piracy service downloads the video from the link and perform watermark detection.
- When the detection operation is completed, the result (detected watermark information or detection failure) can be checked on the PallyCon Console.
If PallyCon Forensic Watermarking is not applied to the content, only the takedown request function is available for the monitoring results.

Watermark detection request

Detection Service screen of the PallyCon Console or through the registered email.
PallyCon Forensic Watermarkingservice plan. For details on detection fees, please check the PallyCon pricing page or through our business manager.
You can request a takedown for items that have completed watermark detection or do not need the detection. Depending on whether forensic watermarking is applied or the customer’s choice,
manual takedown processing is possible.
takedown type is entered as
Automatic when registering a monitoring job, takedown requests are automatically processed for all monitored illegally leaked links. In this case, it is impossible to download the video required for watermarking detection, so manual takedown must be selected for content with PallyCon forensic watermarking applied.
takedown type is entered as
Manual when registering the monitoring job, the takedown request for the monitored illegally leaked link must be handled manually by the customer. Content with forensic watermarking can be manually requested for takedown after performing watermark detection on a specific illegally leaked link according to the customer’s choice.
