Company Helps Monetize Copyrighted Intellectual Property for Rights Holders and Provides Valuable Digital Millennium Copyrights Act Compliance Solution for ISPs

Rightscorp (OTCQB:RIHT), the leading provider of monetization services for artists and holders of copyrighted Intellectual Property (IP), today announced that it has settled more than 60,000 cases of copyright infringement to date. The Company's monetization service successfully collected payments from illegal distributors through notifications sent by their Internet Service Providers (ISPs) on digital assets including music, films, books, video games and software.

"To date, this makes Rightscorp the most effective solution for the multi-billion dollar file-sharing problem," said Christopher Sabec, CEO of Rightscorp. "This fact demonstrates not only that our solution is monetizing copyrights for rights holders but is also is an effective tool in helping ISPs maintain compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act."

The Company currently represents more than 1,000,000 copyrights and has partnered with major motion picture studios, numerous Platinum recording artists and songwriters, Academy Award winning films, top TV shows and many others.

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) states that since peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing emerged in 1999, music sales in the U.S. have dropped 53%, from $14.6 billion to $7.0 billion in 2012. According to the RIAA, approximately 30 billion songs were illegally downloaded on file-sharing networks between 2004 and 2009. A study conducted by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) based on over 20,000 surveys of consumers conducted in 22 countries, found that piracy was costing movie studios $6.1 billion a year.
