Getting content deleted from kazaa/emule servers

This is a pre-emptive attack as this hasn't happened yet but I suspect it might.

I have a document bundle that I sell from my site and I worry about it turning up on a file-sharing network.

If that happens, what chances do I have of getting it removed by the site admin or is that wishful thinking as it is, by definition, peer to peer?

It is doubtful that an Admin can delete it because, as you said, its peer-to-peer so you would have to contact everyone with it hosted on their machines to remove it, even then alot of users don't even know what they are sharing because they just shair there whole Hard Drive.

Do you know what a Canary Trap is?

You can embed a unique tracking code in each document you sell and if a document of yours shows up you will know exactly whos it is and will be able to sue them for damages. Make sure you explicitly state in your Terms of Use that any distribution is unlawful and you will be liable for any damages.

If it is a PDF document there are several ways to do this. Word might me harder.

You should not sue the P2P networks just because they make it easy to pirate, you should sue the infringer for breaking the law.
