Let TopRange claim your content for you!
Each year visual content creators lose millions of dollars to imitators with unoriginal, copied, and stolen content.
But no worries! TopRange is now here to help you secure your monetary rights on your original content. Experts at TopRange see the effort you put into your visual creation, and they refuse to let it go to waste.
TopRange is a Digital Rights Management Company founded in Germany and has been operating internationally since 2015. This boutique Copyright management agency is now taking on new clients for the first time in years because they believe in empowering originality and making online spaces safe for your visual content.
TopRange focuses on protecting Visuals from original creators like dancers, animators, the reaction YouTubers, and others and make sure original Creators earn revenue with their content. Even though this copyright protection company mainly works on YouTube, they also extend their services to visual content creators on TikTok, Instagram, and Twitch.
This digital rights management agency promises to detect and monetize the content of its creators on major visual media platforms without any error. TopRange hunts down all re-uploads and pirated videos of its members, whether used in multiple compilations or single video uploads.
Now, why should you let TopRange take charge of your virtual security instead of relying on your digital platforms’ inbuilt copyrights protection tools? Simply because TopRange is better! It works with its very own detection tool, which is more accurate than YouTube’s Content ID and detects 100% of your Videos. While YouTube’s tool, Content ID, detects around 60-70% of the re-uploads, TopRange focuses to manually detect stolen content of creators and claim them to make sure every single re-upload of content they represent is claimed and they earn revenue for their creators. Moreover, tools like Content ID are just not available for everyone.
Even though YouTube has invested over $100 million and paid out more than $3 billion to rights holders on its flagship infringement-busting tool, it is still not enough. Content ID does its best to absorb all of the creator’s content thoroughly and detects stolen content on other channels allowing the rights holder to either receive the ad revenue by claiming the video or make the video un-viewable by blocking the stolen content or take it down under the DMCA. Still, unfortunately, Content ID’s services are available to only a few content creators and companies. YouTube does allow all content creators to try signing up. Still, most of the time, the tool’s services are only offered to content-right holders who have been victims of pronounced cases with a large amount of piracy and unignorable content duplicity. For Example, in music labels, film studios, or some other type of more prominent individual or organization with “frequent takedown needs.”
Some of the most common issues surrounding Content ID show us that it’s not in the best interest of original content creators if they ever face copyright issues and does not ensure claiming all their money off the table. Content ID generally helps rights owners scale the management of their intellectual property by delivering a fingerprint of the original creator’s audio and visuals to YouTube. This fingerprint is then used to check all proceeding uploads on YouTube against it. It also allows rights owners to gain monetary benefits and manage their infringed content. But then again, the problem arises when Content ID fails to extend its services to all content owners, big or small. Its usage is reserved for owners with solid cases, which puts smaller content creators at a considerable disadvantage.
Another frequently heard term is Manual Claiming—a feature of the Content ID that is meant to help reserve the creator’s monetization rights on their content through human intervention, i.e., that the creator comes across the pirated content and reports it. But ask yourself, what are the odds that relying on this manual intervention will completely secure your content on a platform flooding with thousands of new videos each minute? Moreover, Manual Claiming is even more exclusive. Only right holders with appalling piracy problems and takedown need to get to avail of it. As suggested by the name, it relies on human intervention to detect anything that slips past the eyes of Content ID unnoticed. The rights holder must go and “manually claim” a video whether or not Content ID has found a claim.
So, YouTube’s algorithm of Content ID restricts its access to everyone, leaving a regular content creator with no other way to seek monetization or compensation for their pirated and stolen content. YouTube has introduced an abbreviated version of Content ID, called Copyright Match, but the feature is still in its beta phase even a year after its announcement. It has only been available to selective creators, who are very few compared to most visual creators suffering from monetary usury and pirating. Moreover, this tool does not allow creators to claim stolen content but only gives them the option of taking down the content that matches theirs. This leaves a regular creator with no other choice but to get stolen content taken down through the classic DMCA takedown procedure, and that too only if they come across it.
YouTube’s complex legal doctrines, such as Fair use, allow users to use copyright-protected material under certain circumstances without permission from the copyright owner. Even though it aims to enable creators to create original content supported by copyrighted material, Fair Use is frequently manipulated and taken advantage of to freely make unoriginal and ripped content. The bottom line is that Fair use can also be a factor in hurting a visual content creator. It boosts the viewership and value of the copied content, which is monetarily detrimental to original creators.
It is indeed true that without Content ID, copyrights protection on YouTube would have been impossible. Even though we come across false or unfair claims made by rights owners, this is occasionally occurring. In reality, most of the allegations made through Content ID or manual claiming are legitimate. But then again, this facility is not available to all, and sometimes incorrect claims and the tenuous nature of fair use can cause problems for content creators.
The point is, why go through all the hassle when professionals at TopRange can claim your visual content for you and promise to boost your monthly revenue significantly without any extra effort on your end. In the past, TopRange has successfully paid out over 5 million dollars to creators. Most content creators have no idea that they can earn this money, and even if they do, they have no means to get access to it. Unethical copyright violations do not take any money out of the original content creator’s bank balance. Still, they deprive the original creators of potential revenue that should be theirs but is going into someone else’s pocket.
TopRange has extreme expertise in the copyright realm. The company has worked on matters related to YouTube infringement since 2015 and has helped creators take back millions of dollars from channels that have ripped and pirated their content. This would’ve never been possible had they not sought help from the companies’ managerial experts. The team’s years of experience effectively identify and develop ways to return the creator’s lost value to them.
The firm’s most significant selling point is that they put empathy towards their clients before anything else. Having witnessed the lack of transparency that content creators face on visual media platforms, they ensure that they will provide them with the best possible service. We also have their word that TopRange is not like your regular digital rights management company or a regular MNC, which claims to offer the best services but, in practice, are inadequate and do not return the client as much revenue as promised. TopRange takes a tailored approach specific to each client’s content and comes with a custom claiming strategy to match their wants. They never require their clients to sign over the ownership of their company’s channels or be bound by long-term contracts. Regarding their incentive to provide these unmatched services, we assure you that you won’t have to pay them a penny as long as you don’t get paid first.
We have seen over the years that the most common culprits that harm original artists’ revenue are copycat channels with hours’ long videos of content that have been blatantly ripped, stolen, re-uploaded, and then monetized. It also includes standard compilation videos. One thing to clear out here is that professional compilations composed of licensed clips that larger media organizations have taken through the proper channel do not have a role in this copyright malpractice. But ones created by individuals with criminal and unethical monetary motives or naive fan-based accounts who want to appreciate the creator’s work but end up costing them their rightful money.
Copyright violations and stealing original content are not just limited to YouTube. Visual Content pirates are now porting popular content from other famous visual platforms such as Instagram, Tiktok, and Twitch and posting it on YouTube. Add the stolen videos from these relatively newfangled hubs to what people were already stealing on YouTube. Ad revenue on hundreds of millions of views per month is being lost by the rightful owners of the content. In fact, after the massive surge in TikTok trends, many visual content creators on the platform are facing copyright infringement on YouTube. People steal content from TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube itself and upload it onto YouTube. So, TopRange works with established creators from all across the globe and from all social media platforms ranging from traditional YouTubers, TikTokers, to Twitch streamers to large media companies to successfully make money from TikToks and other original Videos posting social media platforms.
This digital rights management startup helps creators find, copyright claim, and then profit from the unauthorized re-uploads of their original content on YouTube—the world’s largest video sharing platform. Unprecedented levels of piracy are significantly threatening the online ecosystem. One of the main reasons behind it is the prevalent mentality that passes disseminating visual content as harmless. But this is indeed not true. People familiar with the content infringement trends can understand that compilation videos from TikTok or Instagram stories and illegally torrents of large visual productions such as films and music albums are piracy and equally damaging. This attitude demeans YouTube down to no less than the shady URLs we find all over the web with ripped movies available for mass consumption. Hence, it is classified as bona fide piracy and off-limits for all law-abiding users. And creators should know how to combat it!
Hence, TopRange believes in upholding originality and allows its clients to protect their IPs and resultantly increase their earnings. The company helps content owners monetize their original content on YouTube. Their clients include all, Creators, Curators, Agencies, or people who own intellectual property rights for viral videos and want to make money with it on YouTube. They also extend their services to performers, dancers, DJs, and cover artists and help them monetize the visual parts of their videos.
TopRange’s mission is to help content owners to protect and maximize the value of their video content. The services provided by the company include a passive monthly income which their clients can earn without any extra effort on their part right after they claim their content on YouTube. Experts will also make sure to take care of all your monetization-related issues. Custom deals and contracts for creators, curators, talent agencies, and everyone who wants their content to be claimed on YouTube are also offered. Clients can optimize their reach by increasing the audience of their content. This is done through TopRange’s massive network of owned and operated channels. The company places the content creator’s video clips into compilation videos posted on their YouTube Channel, boosting the content owner’s views by millions. Their IP protection team works tirelessly with automated systems to claim 100% of their client’s content on YouTube. That’s why they also run YouTube’s Content ID Software and have developed their own Software that detects almost 100% of the client’s content. Another exciting service is their transparent Earnings Dashboard, which tracks every monetary asset that their clients hold. This puts them at the ease of finding all the information they need regarding their balances in one place while maintaining company client transparency and unprecedented levels of trust between them. Lastly, TopRange provides its clients with a golden opportunity to immensely increasing their earning. By placing their clips in compilations, the company automatically boosts earnings. This resultantly increases the original creator’s visibility and expands their ad revenue.
TopRange has only one mission: to help creators earn back their rightful ad revenue and monetary benefits for their creative content.
Unlike the traditional companies, which offer rights management and other copyrights-related services for a cut of ad revenue, TopRange only charges its clients after it has successfully helped them uncover new revenue. The company ensures that its clients receive maximum incentives from their visual content. The company’s regular process includes getting engaged in a 30-day contract with its client and then, if all goes well, renewing the contract on a monthly basis. Moreover, the company’s revenue is entirely separate from its client’s AdSense revenue which puts all clients at ease when it comes to making sure that their earnings are in the right hands.
For most visual content creators, third-party copyright claims have become a part of their daily lives. These claims can be both correctly or incorrectly submitted, but regardless of that, they have become a nuisance for most content owners who are dealing with them regularly. These claims are a mystery to untangle because all sorts of information about the other party are needed to resolve these issues. These issues are not only faced by the big sharks in the visual content creation industry, but all, including amateur or semi-professional creators, are suffering from these problems because everyone, no matter how wide scaled their work is, owns the copyright on all their original content.
This is the only reason why TopRange is working day and night to make the digital world safer and more comfortable for visual content creators. TopRange believes in the inherent value and the effort that goes into original content creation and is trying its best to instate piracy, whether it has been done intentionally or unintentionally, as intellectual property theft and hence, unacceptable.
