    hey,

    one of my friends had ripped an ebook, copied exactly and selling it via paypal..

    and recruiting affiliates also!

    can someone file a report at DMCA? will it affect his PayPal and Hosting?

    when i warned he made me look like an idiot and said he had "covered the tracks".. :)

    what do u guys think??

    Same thing happens here in BHW, people share methods for free then someone else sell it in DP. I guess you know gurus with the tag "rehash king". :p

    So you're asking BHW if it's cool if you sell content you steal from here?

    I always love the "My friend..." introductions.

    nothing to ask if its cool or not about selling, thats upto each person. some ppl like u are always skeptical!

    but what i find funny is hes gonna get paypal limited and hosting shutdown with a proper complaint..

    this is what i wonder about and how come he says he has covered the tracks..

    You and your friend sound like you are in high school or something.

    Who care what he does.. just concentrate on what you are doing. If you build your own legitimate business, you will out earn him easily. Don't waste any of your energy on what he's doing.

    But if you ARE doing what he's doing (as in, you're talking about your 'friend' when it's actually you doing the ripping), at least cover your tracks. Rewrite the ebook, or cut it down---if it's a 20 page ebook, condense it down to 7, maybe throw in a few screenshots and a new title, then call it a new e-book.

    I see almost everyone covered it already what my concern was... the "my friend is ...." intro. It usually means "I'm about to........ but need to make sure I don't screw myself so I better ask BHW first about my friend"

    OK so you're ripping the book yourself, getting ready to sell it and actually you want advice on HOW to cover your tracks which you would have come to by saying "well this is what he did to cover his tracks do you think that will work"..... but you haven't gotten there yet until you've compiled some ideas.

    In my opinion, don't do an exact copy, you won't cover your tracks well enough just based on your poor my friend bit you've shown here. drop the "my friend" bullshit just say what you're gonna do.

    I mean my friend took a dump this morning that clogged the toilet but I didn't come on here and ask what HE should do about it... his business so unless you are part of it and you have a monetary interest or you are doing it yourself... your friend story is psychologically stupid of you to post.

    Sorry to be rude but it's early here, i haven't had enough coffee and you think you're johnny CSI and its stupid.
