Rightscorp has announced this week that it will be monitoring the film Lost After Dark for digital piracy and illegal downloads. The company, a leading provider of data and anayltic services to support artists and owners of copyrighted property, will be monitoring content for piracy prior to the actual release for the first time.
Lost After Dark, an indie film, was produced by Goldrush Entertainment and directed by filmmaker Ian Kessner. The film pays homage to the golden age of slasher films during the 80’s.
“Most people think of illegally downloaded movies as only coming from major movie studios. The fact is, however, that all movies suffer from piracy, and the economic damage is even more detrimental for the smaller, independent producers,” said Christopher Sabec, CEO of Rightscorp. “Our goal is to make people aware how illegally downloading an independent film directly damages the talented team that made the movie and inhibits the growth of their future artistic endeavors.”
