A lot of people here have been wondering how to stop the piracy and illegal distribution of their products.
Well, I have found a way of taking down your product from illegal distribution sites, and not it is not doing a WhoIs search and then contacting the hosting service with a DMCA notice to take it down and screw the *******.
When people see there stuff is being illegaly distributed there is only one reaction, you are REALLY pissed off and you forgot one of the most essential components of human behaviour. Most people actually respond to plain out being nice.
In many cases I have failed to take down a piracy link for my product, usually because the domain is well protected for WhoIs queries or because the country it is hosted in doesn't give a damn about the DMCA.
So I have taken a different approach in several cases and in 90% of them it has worked just fine.
I contact the person illegaly distributing directly and send them a friendly/warning request to please remove the download link from their website because it is in violation of the DMCA and it is being illegaly distributed.
To my suprpise it works almost every single time, try out!
