    Hi BHW experts

    Need some advice on this very blackhat method I want to try.

    I have a Clickbank product which sells pretty slowly and gets quite alot of refunds. If I offer to give another product as a freebie if they buy from me. I am sure my conversions will go through the roof and refunds will go right down!

    The problem is that the product I want to give away is copyrighted. Its freely available on torrent sites etc but what isnt!?

    So what I ideally want to do is offer customers who buy my clickbank product a download of this freebie bonus too.

    Anyone done similar to this? How can I protect my ass? I dont want to do something that will get me in trouble. What step can I do?

    My idea is to host the freebie on an anonymous mediafire account and call it something different to the actual thing I am giving away. I wont actually say the name of what I am giving away just a description of what it is...

    Then when a customer buys from me I will ask them to email me their clickbank receipt and ill send them the download link.

    IS this enough? I could put a disclaimer in saying that I do not host the download and cannot verify if it is legal (small writing) .

    Also I wont mention the brand or title of the freebie so the owners shouldn't know what I am doing unless they buy my product...

    Any ideas guys? this could be a real money spinner.

    Cheers

    Best option is to find a programmer to create a program that does the same thing, but that doesn't have copyrights. Bring them on and split the profits.

    Otherwise, I don't think there's any way around that.

    What do you meam "give them product as freebie"?
    If you are talking about emailing them file I wouldn't pirate any product in this manner.
    I would think if you give them a link to the file hosted somehwere OTHER THEN YOUR SERVER you should be covered as you only provide an url.
    Or maybe make a simple page encrypted with username and pass which redirects to the dl url... or even better a torrent! Google does the very same thing when you search for the torrents

    Yes thats what I am talking about!

    For example:

    I sell video playing software via Clickbank. On my website I say 'buy this video player from me and I will give you a fantastic blockbuster movie to watch on it'. When they buy it I send them a download link for 'Avatar' or whatever.

    I am not going to advertise that it is 'avatar' on my site (for example). So I should be cool right.? Plus I am only providing the download link right? (like you say)

    Think I am gonna do it..

    Right I have to learn how to put a password on wordpress page now...

    Thanks
