Inadvertently your video on a porn site, 'hundreds of victims last year'

Many well-attended porn sites, such as PornHub and xHamster, have a Digital Millennium Copyright Act form. If you enter this, you declare that you have the copyright or portrait rights to the image material, and that it has been uploaded without your permission. We made such a removal request in all places where we uploaded the video.

“But there are a lot of sites that cannot be contacted. There is no e-mail address, you will only receive a response after weeks or not at all. Removing such a video becomes very difficult,” says Gerkens. “And that entails great risks. Videos are downloaded in a short time by any user and put online on a different platform.” So mop with the tap open.

The results

Two days after submitting the removal requests, five of the twelve videos were still online, and the views continued to rise (up to 800 in total). Three days after our second removal request, two more videos were online. When the videos remained for five days, we removed them ourselves.
