File Shares & Braindumps
March 7, 2007
In our attempt to prevent the 'sharing and transfer' of braindumps on the internet, we've come across a large number of file Sharing websites that provide millions of people access to braindumps. Many of these file sharing sites are created to share illegal information, and they know it...everyone knows it. Be it music, videos, porn, software, or exam questions, if the material was stolen from a copyrighted source, then it is all illegal. These file sharing sites can deny it all they want, but the owners, administrators, and members are well aware that the sharing of these materials is illegal, yet they do nothing to stop it from happening. In fact, they promote it.
Napster may have started the music download craze, but now there are 1000's of sites out there that are sharing more than just music and videos. Testking PDFs appear to be very popular shares nowadays, but is there anything that can be done about them? Music & Video Production companies have spent millions of dollars protecting the rights of their stolen materials. Why can't the Certification Vendors do the same thing? Or can they? Have the Certification Vendors made any attempts at civil litigation?
Should these file sharing websites not be held accountable for allowing this illegal activity to take place? Should they not be listed amongst the thousands of 'braindump' websites? They are, after all, promoting the 'share and transfer' of braindumps.
What about the repercussions of sharing braindumps on such a large scale? Does this open up the playing field to more and more people that originally had very little exposure to IT Certifications? Are there more people entering the IT Industry solely because they now have a reason to get in? Are these free braindumps creating a portal for 'illegal IT aliens'?
