Are you aware of this facebook page?

https://www.facebook.com/magicdownload

They are pirating videos. I'm not sure who can best deal with this blatant stealing.

Fortunately, the person seems to have realized their mistake and apologized.

Wow. There is an apology, but it looks like a bunch of stuff is still there. It's not clear that the person actually intends to remove the material. I would hope Facebook will just shut it down.

There's definitely a lot of stuff still there and I hope that it gets shut down as well. 
I reported them to Facebook. We'll see what happens.

Wow, some people are really stupid...

I was telling some kid to stop downloading videos from that page, his argument was "Everybody else is doing it, why can't I?"
To prove his point, he sent me a list of other pirate sites. I'll be submitting these links to the authorities as well.

Good news! The Facebook page pirating all those videos is done. Of course, that doesn't mean videos are no longer being pirated.

I contacted Joe Turner and he showed interest in writing an article for an upcoming Linking Ring issue about this topic.

Yeah, my videos got pirated within a week or two of their release.  I've seen them sold through china at about 5 bucks a piece.  Unfortunately as many sites as get shut down even more spring up in their place.
