Rightscorp, a provider of data and analytic services to support artists and owners of copyrighted property, has signed an agreement with Carl D. Crowell of Crowell Law in Salem, Oregon, which will see the pair working cooperatively with Rightscorp clients to help raise awareness and educate people about the problems and effects of piracy, provide notice to infringers, and as necessary, pursue litigation against persistent and egregious infringers.

“Carl Crowell and Crowell Law are highly adept at intellectual property matters and have won many cases for the studios and clients they represent,” noted Christopher Sabec, CEO of Rightscorp. “Crowell has been recognised by the courts for his successful targeting of the worst offenders that illegally download films and TV shows to make sure they are held accountable for their actions with dozens of judgements and injunctions against infringers. This agreement will be beneficial to both parties and our clients and we hope with our continued efforts to see an increase in public awareness and recognition of the problems with online piracy and greater respect and appreciation for the value and work of the artists we represent.”
