    Is for example uploading passworded zip file torrents that leads people to your landing page legal? Would leadbolt ban users for using this metod if they found out?

    It's illegal if you provide the actual copyrighted files e.g. games, music, movies. Read the network's TOS to see if they allow that kind of traffic/files. Other than that, you can always hide the traffic source.

    ^Yup, and be careful what network/offers you use it on.

    Thanks for all the answers.

    So as long as I only upload a text file containing the password to leadbolt, they wont mind that the password actually opens a passworded zip file containing copyrighted material?

    How?


    What do you mean?

    What do you mean? =)

    Wouldn't users go to the landing page, then click on the content locker, then become pissed off and report it to e.g. leadbolt/peerfly saying : "I was tricked to come here via a passworded file I downloaded at piratbay!" leadbolt would then possibly ban the account hosting the file.

    @Vrx32 - no it is not illegal unless the copyrighted material you are using is shared in a country where the laws prohibit it - like the US for instance.

    If you use a netherlands server to seed the material then it is fine, just as if I smoked a cuban cigar here in the US it's illegal but I could step into Canada and smoke it no problem. The rest is just breaking TOS of the cpa company which is nothing more than breach of contract and maybe you lose your money if they catch you so it's best to have several cpa's to test with and multiple accounts so not all the eggs are in one basket.

    You'd be surprised how lazy people are about reporting stuff and so long as the user is getting what they expect from you they most likely will not report it and even if they do the cpa company (depending on which it is) will most likely overlook it if you are making them good money. I make avg. 4-5k views daily and have been doing this a long time and never had any complaints - just be sure to mask your aff id#/links if they are too obvious to the end user

    All the good things in life are illegal. Our job was to make them think it's legal, so that's why under the radar, for a very long time, pirates!

    You can paste your password to pastebin and lock it using my url content locker in my signature. I don't have any problems with you doing that.

    You're on the right track. Let's say you are trying to lock a movie file. What you're going to want to do is create a folder such as "Inception-Movie". Then in that folder, create a readme.txt file and then another folder and label it "Movie-File". Have a password lock on the "Movie-File" folder and in the readme.txt file say something like "for the password to watch Inception go to http://watchmoviesnow.com/inception!" (put your sites url there of course). Then put the content locker on that page.

    Works like a charm. Hope that helps!

    What you need is the CPA redirection script by brad0001 and read about affiliate link cloaking. It can also be done using url redirection.

    Graywolf-> Affiliate link cloaking
    johnsondaniel-> faking and blanking referrer script.

    Use search. Sorry cant link from mobile.

    Nothing on this fourm is "Legal". Most CPA methods are considered illegal by the CPA company. That is why this fourm is called "Black hat world"

    It does not matter. There are no frames to break unless you use a transparent overlay.
