TRUST & SECURITY FAQs

Are all RightsTrade’s members industry professionals?


RightsTrade is an online marketplace of industry professionals. Buyer and Seller companies are all subject to a vetting process that will check their identity and the accuracy of their company details and activities before they can be fully registered at RightsTrade. Users are not allowed to share or transfer their accounts without our permission and we encourage them to preserve and maintain their account details as confidential and secret. If you suspect that any member that is misrepresenting him/herself on our site, you should report it by sending an e-mail to info@rightstrade.com.




Where are my video files hosted?


We acknowledge the importance of the security of all the video assets uploaded to our site. All files are stored with Amazon Web Services S3, the leading web-services interface developed by Amazon Web Services to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. Amazon S3’s Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS) feature provides us with the same highly scalable, reliable, secure, fast infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites, as well as media companies such as Netflix, Pinterest and WeTransfer. Amazon S3 is also compliant with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) set of best practices for securely storing, processing, and delivering protected media and content.




How secure is the screening room?


To achieve the highest level of security possible, our backend security captures detailed information of each screener view. This information includes a unique user ID number, email address, device used, IP address and geo-targeting, allowing us to identify and trace every screening that occurs.

Every RightsTrade screener is also secured by the following mechanisms:

  1. A screener requires an AUTHORIZATION be granted to the viewing user by any SELLER/ADMIN at the rights-holding company.
  2. The AUTHORIZATION is tied to the viewer’s account credentials (username/password)
  3. The AUTHORIZATION is time-limited to a specified date-range and access can be limited down to the minute
  4. The AUTHORIZATION can optionally be limited to a certain number of views
  5. The AUTHORIZATION can be optionally limited to a certain number of “devices” (browser/computer combination). So for example, you can limit the authorization to only three devices (eg: Work computer, home computer, and iPad). If the user tries to view on a fourth device, they will be unable.
Our advanced security features also include watermarking of the buyers name across the screener, the size and placement of which can be preset by the sales company. Our screening room is powered by Amazon S3, the leading web-services interface developed by Amazon Web Services to store and retrieve any data from the web. Amazon S3 is compliant with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) set of best practices for securely storing, processing, and delivering protected media and content.




Who can access availability information?


When it comes to availability information, only vetted buyers can see a title's availability and only for the region(s) for which they license content. Additionally, titles and avails can be made entirely private at your discretion.
