    Hi guys,

    As an affiliate last week I uploaded a video in youtube so that promote a CB product. The product has a gravity of 55 in CB...
    Today I noticed that the previous version of the product was uploaded (illegally) to a website and can be captured easily.
    1: Is it a good idea to promote a product which has such a situation?
    2: How did the product get a gravity of 55 in CB then???!

    Thanks

    Most people who use a computer do not know how to get a digital product free, and some won't do it anyway out of ethics.

    You could get pretty much any popular CB product for free if you knew where to look. A grav of 55 is a sign of a very popular product and will have some people making good money from it. My advice is don't sweat it, just keep getting traffic and doing what you do.

    Most people are too afraid of viruses to download the illegal stuff anyway.

    Make sense. Thanks.

    Can we do something against that website which has put the product for free as well?

    Is it worth the effort?

    I suspect anyone who can find it there for free can find it somewhere else for free.

    Maybe inform the product creator and leave it at that? Maybe they aren't bothered themselves.

    You also said it's a previous version. I remember the days when computer magazines would give away free previous versions of quite expensive products. (Maybe it still happens. I've lost interest and the last time I looked I think there was only one such magazine on the shelf.)

    It acted as cheap advertising. Maybe someone downloading the old version is more likely to buy the new version?

    (I've used up my quota of "maybe's" so will stop there.)

    In my opinion a product that has leaked is not a good one to promote. Consider promoting something else.
    How much time and money have you spent promoting it?
    Btw, if you know what you're doing you could get almost anything for free from clickbank. However, a person who is able to get anything for free is not your target customer.
