By the way, if you can’t find an abuse email on their website, try searching through this database of designated agents officially maintained by U.S. Copyright Office. Some of the most popular sites are on there, some are not, but it might be worth a try ;)

http://www.copyright.gov/onlinesp/list/

If it wouldn’t be in PDFs and sometimes handwritten, we would already scrape it and included it in our database. But if anyone by any chance can get their hands on the same list but machine-readable, let us know.

I have sent emails in as per your advice asking for their agents email…. so far one has got back out of 4 and I will send these on once I have a more.

Im wondering if it is worth doing the same with google

I came across a the google DMCA from a case on the http://www.chillingeffects.org/about

if we remove them from google then we are killing there main source of traffic …. what do you think?

Do you have a time frame to when the new or the sites that I sent in will be added to the database?

As at the moment Im only get a 5% success rate and Im have to report most manually

the emails that I have sent to you are under my matur1981 email.

The faster you kick my a** here the lesser the timeframe, you know the drill :)

It’s done mate, just uploaded it.

Will look into that github public repo later then.

nice one I’ll give it a whirl later on

thanks again

looking forward to the github update….. would it be possible to have the database standalone so people could update on their own pc via a txt file like on the server?

That would fragment the contributions and didn’t offer any motivation for people to push into public repo. The freshkiller app would be updated to connect to the database txt from github server instead of ours.

For the lazy ones we will also create a redirect but not sure how long that redirect will last since it’s on our old domain which we would like to stop using (few years max). That should be enough time for everyone to update to new freshkiller, OS gets installed and uninstalled quite often, right? :)

sounds good to me ;)

by the way I just ran Fresh Killer again and I got 100% success with the new sites added to the database.

All you have to do these days is type in “http://graphicriver.net/” on google and there is bad links on page 1 of the results and the same will happen with the other envato domains or they will be on page 2 etc.

I think the main problem these days is actually the search engines because they will list bad links high still. If they did otherwise and it was not very easy for people to find the bad downloads then sales would be far higher than they currently are for everyone.

Until the search engines actually make these changes though the bad websites will sadly just re-upload authors products with a new name a few days after they get taken down.

Tools like these are a really great idea though and definitely step in the right direction, nice work.

:( Just found my theme on such websites too, some of them give it for free…

This solution is good, thank you for your work, but it doesn’t work for me. I followed all the steps and for all the links i inserted, i got the FAILED message.

@Bittloader

Then you need to read the post on page one and email the links in to Freshface via his profile page and let him know here that you have done so.
