Hi folks,

I'm back after an absence of many moons so forgive me if that has already been discovered, discussed and dismissed or whatever.

I was googling around the other day and I stumbled across a site that was unbelievably criminal. It's almost like the silk road of magic and mentalism. This isn't a torrent site, but one where they're selling literally hundreds upon hundreds (3,277 to be exact) of pirated books and videos. (They're all instant downloads and they coast a tiny fraction of their real prices.) If you've put out anything in the last decade, believe me, it's on this site.

I won't describe the site in any detail because I don't want to aid and abet their crimes.

If you have created any books or videos pm me and give me a number where I can phone you to confirm you're who you say you are. I'll give you the url of the site and you can take whatever action you deem appropriate.

I don't get the reference Zombie, but no, I'm not selling anything at all. I just want to help those who are getting ripped off.

I should have mentioned that well known denizens of these parts (Richard O., Bob C., Mr Shaw etc.) don't have to provide a phone number. They can just pm me and I'll pm them back with the particulars.

Oh. Perhaps my stuff will become more popular. I would feel insulted If my stuff wasn't on the site so I don't even want to know.... Is it?

Smile If this site accepts PayPal payments for their downloads, then a complaint from the copyright owner will cause PayPal to demand the offending material be removed under threat of suspension. I have used this approach MANY times and PayPal has never let me down. I am happy to share info on the process.

All the best,

Christopher

Thanks for the info Christopher,

Interestingly they don't take Paypal. I guess we know why. They just take Visa, MasterCard, Western Union (of course), Maestro, Qiwi Wallet, Web Money and bank transfer.

I do, however, feel they are vulnerable via other avenues. They're violating a number of terms of agreement. If nobody else is interested, I'll try to shut them down myself.

I'm happy to go after them on general principles if they have anything of mine.

You would be doing a great service if you did so, Rocketeer. I have my hands full already trying to police my materials.

Good thoughts,

Bob
