The cost of Piracy

The article below is reprinted withg thanks to Spanking England

I remember a TV advert which had the slogan ‘It is good to share’and must confess,sometimes it is.  However,it certainly isn’t if  you have joined a spanking website.  Your membership is for you and only you –when you join all websites set this out in their terms and conditions.  You could say in the contract and if you breach this,then you could find yourself in hot water.  Now,let us set the record straight.  It is true that their are some prolific pirates out there that we do not catch,do you know why?  They are involved in organised crime.  They join our sites with stolen credit cards and they download our films via proxy servers. We have all got much better at identifying these but occasionally one manages to get into our sites and before we know it,our whole site is replicated on a pirate board.  The IP addresses are usually in Russia or other far flung countries where copyright rules are not recognised.

But if you are a Spank Fan who has joined and decided to share our content then you are headed for trouble as Darren East of Brighton can attest.  Now,I am well within my rights to publish his full name and address online but I won’t.   He was a member of the  Spanking Sarah Site and they can prove that he has re uploaded their films to a file locker company.  Whether this has been done for financial gain I cannot say. Darren East has now had his membership to Spanking Sarah cancelled and his credit card has been reported and blocked by all billing agents.   He has been emailed and asked to remove content from the pirate board.  If he fails to do so,then action will be taken.

I expect some of you will class this as ‘petty’or ‘vindictive’  Spanking Website producers are rolling in money right?  Think again.  Most of them have separate jobs as well as their sites. The days when there was plenty of money to be made are long gone.  Every single membership matters and if they allow  films to be shared in this way the websites will simply not survive.  Everyone has to take as many steps as possible to protect their content and if that means chasing people in the small claims court then so be it.  I should imagine Darren East would prefer to just take the pirated films down rather than face his neighbours and work colleagues knowing that not only does he watch spanking porn but that he illegally shares it as well!

I know a lot of the British Spanking website producers and they are all in exactly the same boat.  None of them are rich. They do what they do because wthey have a genuine love of spanking and corporal punishment but  can’t produce content for free.  There are costs involved which need to be covered.  Equipment,Studios,model fees and server costs are just the tip of the iceberg.  The big pirates could not care less if another spanking film was never ever made –they don’t care what genre they rip off.  But if you are a genuine spank fan and you share you are destroying the source of your enjoyment.   You do not have to be a rocket scientist to work out that if the producers do not make any money, they cannot carry on.

I understand that times are hard,for everybody.   However tempting it maybe,please keep your membership to any site to yourself and do not share.
