The whole sharing vs piracy/stealing is a HUGE topic. Native media channels need to evolve with the new technology. It's same with movies, music, ebooks etc.
Last year was following the below discussions:-
But unfortunately nothing came out of it, pirate sites are still distributing content freely and genuine sites who want to find a solution are being shut down.
I think it's high time when media industry should realize that sharing is an evil necessity and is going to happen in one way or other. Solution is not trying to stop it but modify the way content is published so that it's cheaper, widely available and instead of earning per copy, earning will be per view via online Ads etc.
It's a huge issue and there's no easy solution, both sides (i.e. publisher and user) have to let some things go. Lastly, I think solutions like what's suggested by swa66 on pg1 could work.
