how much money are you loosing?

16 replies
It really bugs the hell out of me how little a lot of digital products are protected. I found a lot of products direct from the seller website, which I was able to download for free by doing a simple site:www.yoursite.com in google.

check your site for crying out loud if you don't want your stuff pirated.

    A good advice, unfortunately, this is something that takes time to get learnt, fortunately, there aren`t a lot of pirates out there, and most of them wouldn`t have bought your product if it wasn`t free, so not a big loss, but it is something to think about.

      You be surprised how often I find the ebook of video files this way. I usually use this if I want to find a good product to promote and find out if the product lives up to its sales page. So yea I would not have bought it in the first place. But also dont want to promote something which is easy to pirate.

    Loosing? Not too much. All my clothes fit pretty well.

    If there are some who like to steal these products by doing a simple search on Google then that is not a big deal. For some people it is. You are still safe because many people don't think like that and will take out their credit card and buy what ever you are promoting.

    It is not worth your time to master this. You can do everything in your power to protect your product but you don't have to if you don't have the patience.

    Search product pirates and pirate products should be kept until whenever and be unbelievably difficult to stop them.

    Only newbie that stored files/products on the server and unprotected. Especially, when its easy to download by browsing site:sitename.com in the google search query.

    Fortunately, there are various ways to protect your products/files from piracy. However, no one can't stop that addicting activity.

    Fortunately again, piracy can helps your popularity. You know what I mean, right? Good boy.

    Gee, how nice of you to point it out. It would be even nicer if you'd STOP STEALING.

    Don't blame others for your disgusting behaviour.

    This is so true.
    Many people will buy , if they will not find it for free, so as a product owner, you need to do every possible way, that it will not be so easy to find for free.

    Even though I know I can go to BHW or do a simple google search for most products and get them for free I never do I still buy them if I want them.
