Fastest Piracy Ever?

Fastest piracy ever? I stuck a 150 page e-book on Scribd an hour ago and it was pirated so fast it showed up in the search before my upload. Seems alarmingly fast.

Hum, I am the only one who cant understand what this thread is about? So, nedjer was putting something on Scribd and some pirate ninja robot stole it?

Isnt scribd for free books (I dunno, I dont use it)?

EDIT: is this is about pirates being fast... yes, they are, kinda. The thing with piracy is that computer are made to copy, so it is really hard to prevent them from doing so.

Damn robots, always freeloading off the creativity and hard work of biosapients!

Scribd itself is full of pirated material. Ostensibly it's for distribution of free books and such, but for whatever reason it mostly seems to be full of the same stuff you find on Torrent sites.

Up until this thread I thought scribd was a pirate site. So much so that I have always been afraid to visit it, for fear of getting a virus or something.

It might as well be, since they don't police the material they put up at all, are really slow to pull reported pirated material (if at all), and it just reappears as fast as it's pulled, possibly because there are bots posting stuff to the site.

Kind of the way any image hosting service that does not have rules against nudity rapidly becomes a porn site.
