Playster - Criminal Copyright Abuse Concerns - Philip Keezer + [name removed] - Misleading Advertising - Fake and Bogus Websites for Profiting in Bad Faith
Playster in hand with their questionable affiliates make many bogus websites, numbering in the many thousands, that abuse thousands of authors copyright rights, in order to profit in bad faith and deceive people in signing up for free trials using the bait of PDF downloads.This is bait and switch.
Playster are prolific spammers, filling up the web with bogus websites (which host their banners), and continue to do so knowing it is wrong. There are also concerns about criminal copyright issues, defined as:- Criminal copyright laws prohibit the unacknowledged use of another’s intellectual property for the purpose of financial gain. Violation of these laws can lead to fines and jail time. Criminal copyright laws have been a part of U.S.
laws since 1897, which added a misdemeanor penalty for unlawful performances if "willful and for profit".
Criminal penalties were greatly expanded in the latter half of the twentieth century, and those found guilty of criminal copyright infringement may now be imprisoned for decades, and fined hundreds of thousands of dollars.Because the violations are wilful, clearly have an architect (or architects), blessed and paid by Playster, and is clearly for financial gain at the expense of authors.
There is evidence that Playster affiliates operate with the blessing of [removed] and Philip Keezer (the architects of the scam) and utilize so called 'black hosting' or DMCA immune websites, meaning their affiliates can abuse DMCA with impunity. See screenshots.
A shockingly unethical company.
