ABOUT US

Matchhamster provides news companies with digital intellectual property solutions to strengthen their business models. We offer scalable, automated and user friendly services for the registration, monitoring, analysis and protection of intellectual property online.
Matchhamster’s house of creative work

Our services work in many languages and import formats. Matchhamster manages the whole process; the client only has to decide what IP needs to be managed. We share data in web applications, API’s and reports. All users can be provided with a personal dashboard. We provide personal service: by mail and video call.

With a rapidly growing internet, news companies have business models that are under pressure. We believe control over intellectual property distribution should be a natural part of the strategy of any news company.

We have ten years of experience in digital intellectual property services. In 2008 we started as the Dutch infringement guard for online newspaper content. Since then we have cooperated with more than 100 customers for which we have processed 12 million text stories and images. In addition, we made a major contribution to changing attitudes towards plagiarism and paywalls. Not least through removing 50 thousand copyright infringements from the internet and search engines.

Matchhamster has full ownership over the software and procedures that are developed by our agile teams. Matchhamster is established in Amsterdam in The Netherlands. It is privately owned by its founders and investors.
