How GOT video leak could have been prevented with VdoCipher

Prevent pre-release leaks using dynamic watermarking feature from VdoCipher ?

Game of Throne is one of the most popular TV series currently. The first four episodes of the series started making their way around the Internet Saturday night after being uploaded to several Torrent sites, a day before the official Sunday première. The four leaks seem to originate from a screener sent to reviewers and translators ahead of the show’s launch. Below link give  a detailed news.

The main thing to notice here is that video seems to be downloaded using an external camera which explains poor quality of leakage. There is a watermark at the bottom which is blurred using video editing tool.

1. Create a movie sharing site with login system( user id and password for each of your user ). The number of pre-release viewers would be in range of 100.
