statement of purpose

the purpose of this blog is, to document and expose cases of copyright infringement and illegal file sharing, committed by members of divers piracy groups on yahoo, google and other platforms. Each case published on this blog is proven by documents, which you can receive as a copy, if you send a mail to abuse(at)nkdigitalart(dot)us. The NKDA Team hopes to be of service to the community by exposing IP's of pirates (people who share the products of others without permission and/or against the will of the copyright holder), so other small business owners can protect themselves or at least be aware of the problem

This blog is not about 'shares by accident' , but it will be updated regular with cases of ORGANIZED piracy on social platforms, which can and will be proofed due investigation by forensic digital experts in co operation with a lawyer, specialized in international copyright law.

The postings on this blog will also show, how much of these illegal activities are organized and well planned with the goal to destroy small businesses and online stores period by threatening store owners either way to comply to the pirate's demands or to suffer the consequences in form of excessive file sharing of pay-to-use products.

additional postings about piracy generally and social structures in groups and/or social networks will also be published here.

Stormy aka Blondscreations again

again its her - sharing my products in yahoo groups even if she had more than one warning before. Stormy - this time it will have consequences and I can only warn other designers, check for your stuff, make sure she owns the licenses she uses and that her license numbers are not faked ones

 screenshot of the original email below and more to come, just received another one where she distributes my latest release. This one is persistent in her attempt to bring small business owners down, i don't know why she does it, guess it is just the jealousy of absolutely talent free people, who never did a damn thing by themselves and depend on others to create the stuff they abuse so freely. be assured Stormy aka blondscreations , i will contact every license company and the artists I know to have them check on your licenses, I wouldn't wonder if the most of them are faked since you get all the downloads from piracy groups and divers forums. People like her need to be stopped, one way or the other.

Pando Stars - group take down by yahoo this afternoon

Goodbye Pando Stars 

- or - how a group owner together with 3-4 other members managed to get a 700 member group shut down in less than 24 hours after the first complaint has been filed

click here to read the whole story and see the original mails

a note to the ex owner of this group: your attempt to black mail me into taking this posting down was not your best idea ever. I will not be told by you or anyone, what to publish as long as it follows the TOU of blog spot. Be assured, I am compliant with blogspot and more than one person has attempted to shut me up without success. that is how it will stay. I refuse to comply to your demands and await your public apology for the last threatening mail during the next 24 hours, otherwise I will proceed in this matter. If you have no way to publish an apology, I will do that for your, please contact me in this matter if necessary.

Pando Stars - the family pirates with skills

long time - no see - but here I am back with news from the bottom of the pirate pit. I did something unforgivable today - YESSS go figure! I send a mail to a person, who attempted to share my products (after she shared oodles of other designer's products). I told her not to share my PTU products and this is what happened:

The poor lass got all upset and called a normal 'cease and desist' notification harassment ( I had to simplify this notice for her to make it more understandable, without all the stuff my lawyer drew up for me, simple mind need simple words, right?)

Spazzy, we all know how easily you loose your temper and go into a tantrum or pouting, even if a member only talks normal to you and is on top of it one of 'your kind' (pirate I mean lol, I watched the drama before with those angelic bundle shares and no drama shares and whatever your fellow inmates conjured up to get you all rallied up, your threats to leave the group are never too serious anyway, where would be your stage for your tantrums if you leave every group who doesn't agree with your shares lololol) don't leave lol, you are a yielding source of amusement for many.

make a long story short - a whole bunch of wannabe pirates started a kind of mini war against me by sharing my products excessively. It was what I expected out of a copyright and law ignorant group of people, who obviously don't have anything else to do all day long than to sit on their butts and hit the forward buttons (or the upload button) (or both at the same time?)Heck,Imade it through many illegal shares before and I am still alive and kicking (while some pirates got burned on the way)

of course the appropriate action will be taken in this case as in every other one, every single link is a drop of evidence and by now I have enough material (and will get more by tomorrow as I expect). Thanks to their ignorance they don't realize that they deliver more and more munition for extended DMCA complaints to divers places.

The way those strange people express themselves is carried by ' excellent skills in profane language lol, I learned a few new words which I don't intend to use. I wonder if they talk the same way to their offspring and teach them the same values........well, dirt talks dirty - as we know and since they have no arguments, they just try to scream louder than the rest of us. It is a question of upbringing and an IQ below average as you will learn, when look up pathological behaving of primates in a confrontation with opponents they can't match.

Now, dear reader, I know I made you curious what this is all about lol - bare with me and check back tomorrow, I will publish the original emails right here at the forum.

It reached a level of disgust, even for some decent group members of pando stars,  who wrote to me, apologizing for the whole group, because it was even too much for them to take.

But of course, since the group owner herself leads her obedient minions on and encourages illegal filesharing and art theft, supported by some no brainers who scream 'yippieh!!' to every bad idea, if it is only uttered loud and profane enough - there is a strong tendency recognizable amongst the members to 'howl with the pack' and to go on doing what everyone does, no matter if it causes trouble or not.
(the rest turns their heads and stays out of trouble, other designers are happy it didn't hit them this time lol, this also is a common thing, who wants to be marked as 'rat' by only writing their honest opinion about those grown up kindergarten kiddies or wants to be the next target of a bunch of grown women, more than likely all on the same pms scheduler lol.)

oh no - no trouble for me, mind you, only for the ones initiating, organizing, supporting and carrying on violating my copyrights in a poor attempt to destroy my business.

off to sort all the paper stuff - see you soon to updates in this case, it will stay interesting I can promise you that.

to your question why you cannot subscribe to this blog - it is for your own protection and you can always access it from my main blog anyway :)

to the ones who tried to hack my store - sore attempt script kiddies, you need to go back to the books or ask someone who has a clue lol. (now don't you throw a tantrum again, it is all about learning you know, about reading and understanding (no it is not done with hitting a download button). Every serious hacker (which are highly intelligent people with a special codex of honor)  will refuse to work with such gossips, they are careful folks and will not get the apples out of the fire for you, taking a risk and by your loose mouth suffer the consequences of your battles lol)

have a good night

attention group owners - a troll is on the way lol

Hi all,
i just had a lengthy email conversation with a lady named SusieQ (nooo not Suzi Quattro for them who still remember her, she also had that nickname, great performer by the way)

now, this SusieQ told me she will join some yahoo groups to spread lies and slander about me. the last group she did that got shot down yesterday and she's looking for a new home.

be aware - even if she is a real funny girl and will give people who like drama their money worth with intelligent postings and information - she comes with a few others right behind her and before you know it, your group is in my headlines when harassment and copyright infringement has been spread by her and her companions. as I could experience in pando stars, she is not really a leader type, but reacts very fast to flaming and always feels animated to break the group rules in any way she can, don't know why, maybe she needs some attention? That is not for me to say, i am just dazzled by her bright personality and the colorful way she expresses herself , flaming bright is all I can say lol.
so if your group is boring and you need to add some drama for the sake of entertainment - send little susie an invitation, she will make your day.

if you rather want your group to be relaxed and content without hassle of infringement reports etc.

be aware of this yahoo profile or email addy:
X-eGroups-Msg-Info: 1:12:0:0:0
From: susieQs
X-Yahoo-Profile: shemenway46

keep your groups troll safe

link wars - or - is there no way to bring a fellow pirate down if they steal 'my' links?

Hi all readers,
did you ever think about the people out there in the sharing-caring community with their sensible little souls and what we, the inhumane and greedy copyright holders, do to them by filing complaints or banning them from our stores to protect the fruits of our daily work? No? Well, good for you, it would be compassion wasted, I ensure you.

They claim just to want to 'help others', to get things for free they cannot afford to buy. In times with thousands of free kits and stuff, which are available all over the net - it seems to be an absolute necessity to get the pay to use stuff also in order to make it through the day. (or is it only a necessity for the pirates to collect more rapidshare points?) The bad thing is - those 'others' are mostly the ones getting caught sharing what they received and are shocked when they receive divers complaints, warnings or even 'threats' from yahoo to stop them in their doings, they say 'I just shared what has been shared with me, it is not my fault.' Oh yes, it is, too! you shared a product which clearly states 'do not share -pay to use'. This should not be hard to understand unless you are an illiterate or blind (but in this case - what would you do in a sharing group, you have to be at least able to read in order to participate or lurk...hmm.....maybe it is only occasional blindness what made you sharing one of those things stating 'do not share'). I rather came to the conclusion, that you just don't give a sh.. and plan to go on ignoring such labels on previews. Your excuse is lame, admit it. Come up with a better story if you want to impress the copyright holders, they hear this BS 10 times a day and are quite immunized against compassion and regards for your situation as 'victimized' snaggersharer. As a matter of fact, to dish up such a plain lie could rather make the copyright holder chasing you like a rabbit all over your groups until they find a way to stop you once and for all. The other excuse I often hear is 'They made me sharing it, they wanted me to share it" Who is 'they' and why are you never willing to tell on those people harassing you or threatening you if you don't share what you receive? Come on - save the tale for someone who has more heart than brains. Ignorance does not keep you safe from getting reported and any further lie only makes it worse.

But I am getting off the topic a bit, back to our sharing Robin Hoods of this world. Oh don't we all wish to have such angels amongst us, filling our every need for the most senseless things without payment or even recognition? They must be the best people in the world, to care so much for one another and help themselves and others to products they didn't pay for. thanks to tools like rapidshare uploaders, pando etc. their job has been made easy. They share in anonymity, switching names and identities like chameleons, just for the sake to help others, how selfless they are indeed.

Strange enough that these are the same people raising hell, if one of their fellow pirates takes such a link (which leads to goods produced and created by working people which the pirates share without consent, permission or even consideration for the copyright holder), downloads this link and then dare to share it from their own RS account or with pando.

OH you should see those angels of humanity when that happens, hell hath no fury, they start up on one another like a bunch of wild dogs, trying all in the world to defame their adversaries and don't hesitate to call on the establishment (which they want to beat so badly) for help, when they don't see another way to bring other pirates down.

Dear pirates - I am sorry to see all you innocent darlings involved in a war you started amongst yourself. Lately you don't seem to be so much into getting other peoples hard work, rather in getting other pirates illegal links and distribute them in your very own way.

No, members of the sharing community, there is no way to report someone for 'stealing' another s illegal link lol, the only one who can report a link and have it taken down is the copyright holder or a representative of them, authorized to act in their name. (Now, don't you start faking such authorizations - believe me, RS and others check thoroughly before they take links down. and no, faked emails won't pass for valid either as some of you already had to learn lol.

Watch it fellow designers and artists, helpful people reporting links to you might not be who you think they are. Never fall for just their word about who the sharing culprit was - they are absolutely able to dish you a lie just to frame one of their sharing colleagues.

Take the links down, yes, but before you report the one who 'obviously' shared it - ask your informant for the original email header and put it through a scan (see links at the right side of this blog), this will show you pretty quickly if the header is real and valid or if it is just a tempered with email. Be aware of pirates who try to utilize you, just for framing other pirates and get them off the net.

We learn as we go - all of us, sometimes even the pirates. Willing to read all about how to report other pirates for stealing their links but not willing to read the basics about copyright law and to act accordingly.

Dear Pirates - it is Sunday, do something good and switch your computer off for a day, give one another and the copyright holders a break. Relax and think about something nice, anything is fine as long as it does not require an internet connection. Maybe since you all get so upset about someone 'stealing' your links - you could think about how people feel when you steal their WORK. I doubt they like what you do and since they worked for it (i mean WORKED, not clicked a button to upload) they might get pretty upset about your doings. Don't say you haven't been warned lol.

To all fellow designers - keep up filing complaints and reports, don't back down from this unorganized bunch of thieves who is fighting one another, they are not half as 'powerful' as they want to make you believe. they only learned that a designer has to work in order to survive and with their doings they want to stop and distract you in every possible way.

Don't fall for it and give in, even if you think you will find a way to get along, accepting other peoples life style and different views - they will not stop sharing your stuff, never believe this a second. with every designer complying to their illegal doings - they weaken the resistance against digital piracy. Every one who lets them do it, contributes themselves in a passive way to illegal file sharing of this gimme gimme society, who think they have to have every thing no matter what and believe they are entitled to your work without paying you.

One more thing before I get off my soap box - would someone please go and steal a Porsche 911 for me? I cannot by any means afford one and want one sooo badly - where are the sharing caring people of this world lolololol??????? and yes, I want a black one if possible lol. but I guess I have to work some more and buy one, since this beautiful vehicle cannot be uploaded to rapidshare or pando lol.

have a nice Sunday, all of you
sincerely yours,
dedicated to the cause
