    I am just wondering, how "risky" is it to copy someones eBook like an old one off a warez site and edit your affiliate links in and reupload?

    I dont think its risky at all. There are plenty of methods on here that
    include something like this.

    This is actually something I was reading into last night and plan on experimenting with it.

    I mean you could literally take all the copyright out and rename it as your own. Im sure
    that the original createor isnt searching for this type of info.
    neither is someone who already bought it

    Yeah it sounds shitty but i just look for the one's without copyrights and touch them up a bit and so far so good.

    Why not just rewrite and make it your own? You will have nothing to worry about then.

    I am just wondering how "trackable" you are. If someone seen a torrent, how easy would it be for them to give me a penalty?

    Interesting thread. I was actually just thinking about:

    * Buy a good looking ebook (or all the ebooks in a niche) off Clickbank (using your own affiliate codes of course).
    * Edit it / them and stuff it full of affiliate links for related products.
    * Make your own tour and checkout and sell it instead of promoting the Clickbank product.

    Pros:
    * Set your own price and keep all the money (minus processing costs).
    * No worries about shaving or getting paid.
    * Less of a wait to get paid, compared to some affiliate networks.
    * You control the tour and can test it / tweak it / make it better than the original CB tour.
    * You would be the only one selling that product, so you can set up a network of fake "reviews" and you don't have to worry about losing the cookie to some review site pushing the same product.
    * Easier to get PPC traffic because you're not an affiliate (you're pushing your own product).

    Cons:
    * You might get fucked in the ass by a copyright claim (seems unlikely though).

    I think I'm gonna have to try this...

    I have been using this tactic with a twist. I take the ebooks choose the ones with no website. What I mean is many of the famous(!) e-books have been sold on a website as they were the greatest products on earth but they had their websites closed.

    I take these orphan books, fill them with my links, giveaway them for free on my lists and many websites.

    The return is good. No one calls you for any copyright claims or no reader claims that this was a bad e-book as they got it free. :)
