At Udemy, we work everyday with educators like yourself, who create content for the benefit of others, so we understand how valuable your content is and are committed to helping you protect it.
How Udemy protects an instructor’s content
Udemy employs anti-piracy technology, including encoding videos using a proprietary player and attaching a Udemy watermark to all videos. This is why, when instructors upload a video to Udemy, there is both an uploading and "processing" time, because we are encoding the videos to make them difficult to steal.
For a motivated pirate, however, any content that appears on a computer screen is vulnerable to theft. This is a problem across the industry. As a result, we are closely partnering with anti-piracy vendors that specialize in protecting content on behalf of creators.They deploy an automated system that detects and removes unauthorized content on offending sites, such as cyberlockers and torrents, whilst in parallel, requesting removal of unauthorized content on Google.
