Illegal download/upload/streaming sites - Please rate Red.

Post by Site-rater » Mon Nov 09, 2015 9:25 pm

Note: Lists start at https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/61664-psa-please-rate-illegal-software-sites-red?comment=313654#comment-313654

It has come to my attention that a user is trying to discredit WOT because his website that deals in illegally copied software was rated red, by pointing out that major warez sites (sites that deal in illegally copied software, music, movies, and/or other content) are rated green.
WOT is designed to warn of potentially illegal websites. When you rate red, make sure to select in step 2 the Negative category and check "Potentially illegal." As quoted by WOT, Potentially illegal means:
Based on your experience or opinion the site promotes or is involved in activities that are perceived as potentially illegal, such as pirated content or giving advice on how to commit burglary.
Please see https://www.mywot.com/wiki/Crack_/_Hack_/_Warez
and participate in the forum thread https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/7829-warning-warez-portals-illegal-content-copyright-infringement

Also, for your reference here are a few threads I started:
https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/46482-torrentfreak-copyright-infringing-and-troll-friendly (pro-piracy website)
https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/61514-strem-io-pirate-movie-app-advertised-on-pro-piracy-website (pirate movie app, possible scorecard manipulation)

Please disregard the first reply; this is not what the thread is about. For example he fails to mention that Free Software Foundation Inc owns several valid copyrights for free software programs, and maintains a DMCA Designated Agent registered with the copyright office. TorrentFreak does not have either, and stremio doesn't have a designated agent.

"Pro"-"piracy" Web site. Does that mean anti-intellectual-"property" institutions like the Ludwig von Mises Institute, the Free Software Foundation, and the Center for the Study of Innovative Freedom should be rated red? I think not!

EDIT: And what about all those groups who support legalizing medical marijuana?

Is about the law =
Keep it or change it, but don't break it unless you want a non trusted rating

When dealing with Piracy / Warez websites - just because they are popular that does not mean they are safe.
I am listing some of the warez sites which need a change of rating pretty soon. One more thing many warez sites tend to
get sold and new owners often use it for attracting traffic to dubious sites.

E.g - katz.cd

This domain used to be associated with warez distribution. Then the domain was sold to some scammers. Now when people try to download stuff from this site they are forced to take a monthly subscription for downloads. Be adviced once you provide your credit card details the site will charge you continously and there is no way to stop unless the card is blocked. Many people have been scammed by this fraudulent website. Also after subscription most of the downloads are fake and loaded with malicious content so never download anything off this website.

Check the wot reputation of the site it redirects to : https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/downloadprovider.me
and https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/downloadsparadise.com

Many were found in lists from pro-piracy sites, and others from simple Google searches. Beware that some of these sites have malicious software, tracking, privacy risks, etc, and sites that use file-sharing technology carry an increased risk of legal action because the software required to download from those sites automatically shares all content that is downloaded.

This list was pulled from a very prolific Disqus user on Torrentfreak (user is hxxps://disqus.com/by/thisguy1337/), leaked to several Pastebin type sites:

List of domains/hosts

(Outdated list removed, see below for an updated list.)
All domains have been blocked in various European countries for copyright infringement. Some domains may be duplicates of my previous list.

URGENT ATTENTION

Most of the piratebay domains have not only good reputation but also rated green on child safety

[img]http://i.imgur.com/OWFDSxA.png[/img]

But these websites have pornographic content - http://prntscr.com/94eqpv

Please rate red for child safety - Maybe the WOT team can tell us more about why these sites are deemed child safe
even though they are not.
