Pirates have numerous tricks to entice visitors to click advertising (so they will earn income). Below you’ll see three images. The first is the page listing the download link to our film. Click that and you’re taken to an intermediate page featuring, no surprise, Google ads. In tiny print you’ll see “click link.” Click that and you’ll be taken to yet another intermediate site with the same scenario. Finally, if you’re patient, you’ll end up at your destination where you can download the film for “free.” Again, everyone profits in this scenario but the content creators….
STEP ONE: Original Website featuring download link to the film.
STEP TWO: Click the link and you end up here (the pirate hopes you click an ad) so they make $$$.
STEP THREE: Deja vu-Click the link and you end up here (the pirate hopes you click an ad) so they make $$$.
STEP FOUR: Finally your patience pays off and here you have a real download link for the film. The cyber-locker site (Duck Load) hops you are impatient and will pay for a “high-speed” subscription service to download file(s) from their site.
