Well, I see today that Fritchys has taken down all its massive collection of links to stolen content. This is another of the big boards that has folded to the combined pressure of lawsuits and, most importantly, threats of advertising revenue loss from folks like AFF and Fleshlight. See, if you remove the revenue these boards get from advertising, there are no funds to keep them afloat, so they are vulnerable to pressure from their advertisers. And the advertisers are getting mucho pressure from the content producers to stop supporting these content thieves.

Of course, there are still many link boards and torrent sites but for how much longer? And don't think they'll just move off shore; who will pay to keep them running when they cannot get advertiser dollars any longer? Members? Hell no, they won't even pay for porn.

The rumors of the death of stolen porn have been greatly exaggerated, mr. spungebob

I have to agree. The pressure from the porn industry is not anywhere near the level where these pirates seriously begin to care. Sure, individual sites can be shut down but at this point the pirates as a group are not affected.I'm not even sure it's possible to get that kind of pressure going with the kind of public reputation that the porn industry has.

Spongebub is 100% right here, and it's something I have been going on about for a while as well. The real problem is the apathy on the part of content owners/producers, unfortunately.

I believe AVN were running ads on a well known pirate site...wouldn't it have been nice to see every producer in town just tell Fishbein that as long as those ads are running, then he won't see a nickel in advertising revenue from them?

I've already advocated blacklisting Mr. Marcus until he cleans the piracy off of his forum. Any forum that offers pirated content yet has affiliate banner ads should have the affiliate account pulled and accrued monies confiscated. Perhaps said monies should go to whoever reported the site to the affiliate programme owners? I think you'd see a lot of people reporting such violations when a cash incentive is involved.

I realise that the general consensus is 'You'll never be able to stop it', and maybe that is true, but you can sure as hell reduce it, and thus reduce the impact it has on sales. Without a means of income (affiliate ads or pay per click banners), these sites cannot survive...how are they going to pay for all of that bandwidth when they have no money coming in?

It would be nice to know who it was that put the pressure on Fritchys...anyone know?

People on the board are saying it was FTV mainly but the board owner hasn't substantiated that.

ALS Scan was a known "hard hitter" back in the day when it came to prosecuting pirated content. Photos or video, good for them!
