I've just stumble with Scribd, which is a site supposedly to share documents.
And I've found lots and lots of copyrighted material there.
Still, its popularity still growing.
Is this the new way of create a succesfull website?
Be pirate now, legal later ?
It may or may not hit a legal wall. I look at the efforts EZineArticles and Squidoo have made lately to clean up. It wasn't so much the legal wall (for EZineArticles the bigger issue was people writing one article and "spinning" it into 10-20 articles). The big issue was that they were getting perceived as low quality spammer sites and that was going to kill them long term.
I think Scribd will be forced to clean things up for similar reasons if the lawyers don't stop them first.
