The first thing that online content producers need to understand is that although there are ways to minimize piracy of video content, there is no way to completely prevent this type of theft from taking place. In fact, if the content can be viewed online, there is a potential for it to be stolen. However, there are steps that you can take to make piracy more difficult. You can also minimize the number of times the video can be illegally viewed and taken. The options you can take to prevent online video piracy will be dependent on the method you use to present the video to online viewers.
