After months of preparation the American Bridal and Prom Manufacturers Association gets set to deploy their plan to slow down Internet piracy of dresses and images. eWedNewz has learned the organization is cooperating with other organizations who have successfully launched their own initiatives that are making a difference.
One of the more pertinent campaigns to the ABPMA organization is the Stop Fakes effort. The aggressive campaign reported by the New York Daily News in April sought to shut down at least six bogus websites selling knock-off Sherri Hill Dresses. In an updated post this week eleven websites were replaced with warning messages.
Slowly, campaigns like Sherri Hill’s Stop Fakes are slowing down rampant internet piracy and copyright infringement.
In a release from Steve Lang, President of the ABPMA, he cites the similarities of how the new organization plans to slow the constant barrage of new websites that pop up, no sooner than some go down.
“We will whack these people like no one has; yes, it will never stop but we will slow it down a lot,” according to Lang.
eWedNewz has learned of a major legal offensive against at least 400 suspected websites, as a start. According to Lang, once the main focus of web piracy is under control the new organization will open its doors to all industry members, offering benefits of membership that will include low-cost health insurance.
