Digital Content Brokerage Sites Unite to Protect Graphic Artists
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) April 26, 2006 - Renderosity is proud to announce the official formation of it's online "Fraud Protection Forum" consisting of several different digital art brokerage sites. This special forum is designed to reduce the overall number of fraudulent credit card purchases of digital art content.
"Credit card fraud is a major concern for all on-line businesses. Credit card theft has steadily increased as thieves have become more and more sophisticated. On-line credit card fraud is particularly difficult for companies offering digital products that can be instantly downloaded. From what we understand, all of the leading digital art sites have been victims of credit card theft at one time or another," commented Jenifer Carey, Bondware, Inc. VP of Finance. "We believe that by working together we can better protect individual businesses as well as individual digital artists, 3D graphics and animation software companies and the digital art industry as a whole."
Renderosity has many years invested in credit card fraud detection. This commitment has resulted in a less than average credit card fraud rate adding to Renderosity's proven track record as an industry leader. "We value the artists and software companies that sell products through the Renderosity MarketPlace," said Clint Hawkins, ECommerce Manager. "We want to do everything we can to provide them with the best selling tools in the industry and to help them protect their intellectual property."
Preventing fraudulent purchases has the additional benefit of reducing new content from distributed illegally on the warez and peer-to-peer networks.
As the largest and most diverse brokered digital art community on the Internet, Renderosity would like to share the benefits of it's years of experience and knowledge with other brokered sites for the greater good of the entire digital art content industry.
Renderosity looks forward to working with other industry professionals to protect 3D and 2D digital art content.
