I was reading an earlier post about digital piracy, and it got me thinking.
What if you continuously loaded fake versions of your products to the known bad-acting file-sharing sites?
So if a person did a search for your product, there would be about 95 fakes, and maybe 3 illegal copies of your product. You could even put posts like "Totally real, not a fake!" And then the open it and it's a fake LOL.
The idea is that you will wear the person out who is trying to steal your product. For a high-cost product, they might still keep trying. But for a low-cost product, they might start to do the math and figure out that besides being honest and lawful, it's in their own best interest of saving time to pay for the product and stop being such a cheat.
I could see fellow marketers collaborating with each other to send fakes of each others products from all different IP addresses, etc.
Just an idea.
