?

Should I post this infographic?

  1. Yes, absolutely. People should know the evils of piracy when buying proxies to do it.

    Your fame is spreading, guys. I had an email today from the PirateBay (not the actual piratebay.. but still!) asking me if I could put their infographic on the site because they like our work.

    I'll be honest, I got a bit star-struck and couldn't put together a good answer so thought I'd get some help from the very people they want to reach. I'm not sure what they're trying to say on the infographic and text. Or even what work I do on Website that he likes.

    The Email:

    " Hello Apricot,

    My name’s Oscar, and I’m contacting you on behalf of The Pirate Bay (sellingproxies-notapiratebaylink). My content creation team has just created a new and informative infographic for them called:
    2016 MOST PIRATED CONTENT from the internet.

    You can view that here:

    again, not a link to PirateBay

    I contacted you because I like your work on Website, and think your audience may find this very intriguing and informative.

    Would you like to post this infographic for your audience? Or, even just a social media image post if for some reason you don’t want it directly on your website.

    Also, if you need us to provide you with an accompanying unique article, we can certainly do that :)

    And if for some reason you’re unable to post, would you please refer me to someone you know who might be interested?

    Thank you Apricot. "



    Here's the text and infographic they want me to publish. So tell me guys, do I post it or not?

    So what is the big deal? If these content provider do not overcharge, I think people are more than willing to pay to get the real deal. Music, movies and even comics will not get such a big following if not for these piracy. This industry should relook into its outdated business model then to complain about piracy.

    Im a little confused what exactly they are trying to promote. Are they trying to stop piracy? or selling proxies? Or what?

    Pretty sure it is from somebody here

    ** direct link removed **

    2 month old site, the article that was posted is pretty bizarre really






    WARNING: I WOULD ADVISE PEOPLE NOT TO USE THAT SITE

    Could be some kind on honeypot tracking what you are downloading.

    I've got it now. I think it's Apricots new site that she is trying to push outside of marketplace.

    Reported.

    I think they're highlighting how big piracy is, but unless you're a monk or nun most people are aware of this. Or are they promoting their own sites further?

    Silly thing is if things like Sky tv with sports and movies were more affordable, people would always be more willing to pay for this than not.
    I have friends in the UK who subscribe to the full package and what they pay is more than their monthly mortgage - crazy.

    The members downloads on here are all pirate access, how many of the people who download these then go and support the producer by actually buying? Very few, I'd suggest. I saw on another forum last November someone requesting a download of a WSO, I looked for it and it cost $7 to buy it legit.

    I have a couple of Kodi boxes to watch tv or films on, but as I watch about 2 hours a day, I am not going to pay crazy money just to do so. Last month I was reading about arrests in the UK of people selling these boxes and Firesticks, preloaded with all sports, movies etc.
    While ever there are offshore DCMA ignoring hosting, there will always be pirate sites.

    Privacy is just the opposing force against the media outlets / film and music industries that are extorting everyone. Imho

    I don't like pirates ;) people who can't spend $5 for movie show, $15 for game or $300 for software what make them 10x more revenue.
    Previously I didn't understand it but now? I am really furious if someone pirate my content :)

    I dunno. I think they're saying piracy is bad. But look at these sites that do it. But it's damaging industries. But here's some cool people that started doing it. But you can go to prison. But it's the best way to get media. But it's still wrong. Also, use our proxies.


    Oh man, how did I miss that?! I'm so embarrassed.


    [​IMG]



    Well, it had to come from them. I'm never gonna let you down.


    I've removed the link to the URL if you don't mind - don't want to give them any direct traffic.


    STOP! Don't click through to anti-piracy, piracy proxy spam sites! Just say no!

    Remember! Piracy is... bad? I can't tell any more.
