LOS ANGELES, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nexicon (Pink Sheets: NXCO), developer of next generation digital media protection and intelligence solutions, today announced the launch of AmnestyQuest.com, a website that provides authors in the self-help/motivational market with an amicable, effective way to enforce the copyrights of their downloadable materials. AmnestyQuest.com is a partnership between Nexicon and IntentionQuest, Nexicon's exclusive representative in the "self-help" industry, and provides authors, lecturers and publishers a business-savvy alternative to copyright infringement litigation by permitting infringers to pay an amnesty fee directly to the copyright holder.
Using Nexicon's "GetAmnesty(TM)" platform, copyrights can be rightfully enforced without the expense, drama or brand-killing ill-will of litigation. Renowned expert Dr. Tony Alessandra, Internet entrepreneur, business author, and hall-of-fame keynote speaker, is the first author to license access to the service provided at AmnestyQuest.com
Copyright infringement on the Internet continues to expand at a rapid pace on a worldwide basis. Every day millions of illegal copies of music, films, software, and e-books are downloaded as well as "traded," costing copyright holders untold millions in lost revenue. Illegal copies of personal growth and development e-books, audio, and video files have experienced a particularly large spike in recent months given the rapid upturn in unemployment and the associated demand for self-improvement related materials.
While recognizing the problem, copyright holders are often reluctant to take enforcement action against a population that consists largely of their own fans. Moreover, traditional legal remedies (cease and desist notices, litigation) can be extraordinarily expensive and time-consuming - all with uncertain results. Nexicon provides a reasonable alternative, in line with the gravity of the particular infringement at issue. In many cases, infringers can use AmnestyQuest and legitimize their material for just a few dollars, quickly and easily - a true win/win transaction.
"Our industry experts spend a significant amount of time and effort in developing the very best information that they can for their clients," said Michael Nitti, president of IntentionQuest. "It is important that we protect the value of that work, in addition to protecting the integrity of thousands of clients who do purchase authorized copies of materials. AmnestyQuest enables us to actively monitor infringement, and take action that is proportionate to the infringement."
Significantly, in addition to providing a mechanism for amnesty payment, Nexicon's platform also provides Dr. Alessandra with insightful business intelligence. For instance, if the technology shows that a disproportionate amount of infringement is occurring in a particular geographic area, he may reasonably infer that he has a large fan base there. Consequently, he may elect to schedule an appearance in the area, or target additional marketing efforts there. Nexicon's technology isn't just about enforcement but also provides actionable, spot-on intelligence.
"We expect several others in the space to follow Dr. Alessandra's lead," said Sam Glines, president and CEO of Nexicon. "This is a very opportune time for experts, such as Dr. Alessandra, to take a pro-active role in both copyright enforcement and in market research. Nexicon's technology provides its clients with the ability to dramatically improve their copyright management and improve their knowledge of existing, and potential, markets for their content and services."
