a big way recently.
Someone cracked a software application we are selling in a gaming niche
and shared it on all these sites. $1000s in loses!
File sharing is just a cover up for a huge criminal activity!
Here is what kills me, when you are the copyright owner you have to go
through all the trouble and proving that you are indeed the owner. File
DMCA complaints etc.
But the criminal doesn't need to do anything, but click upload and presto
your file is being shared on multiple sites all over the web.
Then you need to go through each one of those sites and prove that
it's copyright violation. What a joke
Government needs to shut down all file sharing sites, or at least put some
laws in place where the uploader needs to go through all the trouble to
prove it's not copyrighted work.
Why do we (product developers) need to go through all that trouble? WTF
We all know that most of the files on these sites are violation of copyrights
so I really hope that one day they just shut them down completely and
sue for damages.
They should also develop a system that if there was a DMCA complaint
filed against you for uploading copyrighted work, the file sharing site should
report it to authorities and the police should be dispatched to arrest the
