mtiks was the first company ever to come to the market with anti-piracy solutions for iPhone apps. mtiks says it can help companies to defend their intellectual property and recover profits by monitoring, reporting and then preventing the abuse of the copyrighted apps. It also claims to disclose new profit streams by gaining awareness on the issue of unauthorized use of applications.
mtiks, a privately owned iPhone and iPad app anti-piracy solution company based in Andover, Mass, was established just three weeks ago and already current customers are said to be enjoying its advantages on the private beta-mode based on invitations.
mtiks was launched by marketing and technical entrepreneurs living in development of mobile applications and copyright industry for a long time. The company carried out a significant research for several months, based on copyright violation reports for iPhone app found online. They also talked to different iPhone app firms and developers, from the top ones to ordinary individual designers. Their estimations of the web-based claims for $450m lost because of infringers are probably not very accurate, and could be less or more, but the point which is true for sure is that all developers the company interacted with were affected by copyright infringement to some extent: from 30 to 90 per cent, depending on the popularity of their applications.
An anti-piracy company for iPhone applications mtiks was successfully set up on April 30 this year and now its real apps statistics proves their survey report on infringement. The company also claims their protecting solution to work perfectly for early adopters. However, their test clients that were invites to try beta-version doubt on this. The samples of responses they’ve got from the real developers included the beliefs that piracy can’t be controlled and it substitutes their marketing efforts. Most of them also admit that pirates will find another way to attack anyway and prefer to focus on existing clients. Besides, there are some apprehensions that implemented anti-piracy option may affect legitimate clients.
In most cases, companies simply do not believe the solution works at all. But mtiks keep declaring their solution works for all categories of applications. Well, if it does, we’ll see it soon!
