    i get delivering a real working hack / app / movie would be illegal

    but why is it okay to deliver nothing / a non working program okay?

    I am a bit confused.

    I saw an article of a spanish guy who got arrest for selling a fake whatsapp spying application today in the news

    I do not do CPA / PPD but have been reading about it, want to understand it before i decide to enter or not.

    Has anyone went to jail over doing cpa?

    has any networks been shut down because of CPA / PPD?

    thanks

    What he got arrested for, wasn't that he was sharing a not working WhatsApp application.

    What he got arrested for, was the he had stolen 11.000 WhatsApp ID's, and then used them to earn. (That's what I have heard).

    Oh okay,

    But i have been searching and i cannot find anyone who can say if PPD / CPA issuing non-working programs or nothing is illegal and can create problems

    also i have yet to find anyone who has got in trouble for using CPA networks..

    Just seeking more info on everything, the legal side of things

    Because it's not illegal to lie on the internet. If your program is malicious, then it's illegal. But if your program doesn't exist, it's just inconvenient.

    Still CPA/PPD is a dying business and I would stay out of it if I was you...
    I predict it to be almost useless in 5 years...
    The promoters keep uploading fake shit that doesn't work and more and more people are realizing that survey=scam - why don't you learn how to do graphics/write articles or something productive that still can earn you a lot of money online?

    OP you say you been reading alot about PPD and CPA, I think you haven't cause if you did you will realize it is 100% legal and beneficial to all parties if done right.

    PPD = Pay Per Download, this download does not have to be copyright infringing nor fake, in fact those two things are against any legit PPD company TOS, which means they do not allow it.

    If done right The PPD company will pay you a commission for your downloaded file (legit, non copyrighted file) and the end user (user who filled out a survey or paid) receives said file that got him to that download link in the first place. All parties involved got what was promised and is 100% legal.

    CPA = Cost Per Action, which can cover many things cause that "action" can be one of numerous things, but in your case I am fairly sure you are talking about the Content Locking industry. In this case a Content Locking Network will supply you with offers directly and you use them in a content locking manner. These content locking networks allow you content lock content your visitors may deems worthy enough to fill out a offer for, this content should be real, and non copyright infringing, infact any legit Content Locking network will have Misleading promotion methods, fake files, and copyrighted material on their prohibited methods of promotions.

    So in closing PPD and Content Locking is a 100% legit business, only times it becomes illegal is on the publisher end only. How you decide to get people to complete these said offers is on you and you can chose to stay legal and do things the right way or you can go rogue and do it the wrong way. So no you have nothing to worry about if you decide to get involve in the PPD or Content locking world the only liability is yourself, if YOU get in trouble for YOUR promotions methods its no ones fault but YOURSELF.

    He was not arrested for content locking an app. He was arrested for stealing login credentials of the whatapp users. It was more of a hacking case.

    What you're talking about is content locking. CPA is alive and well. People who are using PPV and PPC to promote their offers will always have that to rely on.

    Don't think too much about that.

    Promote the right thing. Get PLR ebook or something valuable like tutorial. You can use content looking of CPA or PPD to monetize this product, you will be right.

    Just ignore people using fake generators or any kind of fake things for CPA. Move on if you doubt about illegal or legal, you can focus on promote legal thing.

    Yeah right. . Keep saying that to yourself. Everyday fresh new potential leads are born and this will keep working even are 5 years ..in fact this business will keep growing exponentially since its just a beginning
    And you don't have to always promote illegal or take stuff. You can make an ebook in how to lose weight and make it available to those who fill out the survey

    CPA and PPD will still help you earn if you do it right and know what the right products you should promote.
