Report pirates made easy

The British anti-piracy organization FAST (Federation against Software Theft) wants to tackle pirate copiers with a so-called plug-in for Internet Explorer. With this plugin, every Internet surfer who has come across a website that offers pirated copies can report this page to FAST with a simple click on an F symbol that was installed by the plugin.

During the transmission When the data is sent to the FAST team, the URL of the page with the suspicious content and a screenshot of the screen are sent to FAST. To preserve evidence as it is called. The data of the sender of the data should not be transmitted. If you then have such an Internet address, it is immediately reported to the ISP (Internet Service Provider) who hosts this page. The service provider has full support, said a spokesman for the organization.
