One way we can all fight this thievery is refuse to buy from these sites. Remember … if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

I work in a business (computer software) that is always under attack by creeps like this. We defend ourselves and protect our intellectual property as vehemently as we can, but Charles is right … chasing these bozoes down can be an expensive proposition, and the off-shore thieves (which is where most seem to be) are almost impossible to get shut down.

We’ve filed DMCA notices, but as Swirt points out, it can take a long time. In our experience, it is sort of like when the cops clamp down on prostitution … they step on it in one place and it just bubbles up in another.

Doesn’t mean we tolerate it … we fight like hell every opportunity we get.
