How can a service like this compete with free?

I have no idea =) I just done that. Idea was to replace captcha with bitcoins. So to evade bots we make it costly to download. Also to encourage uploaders - they get commission.

Now I understand that it will not work for the same goal as sendyouit.com, but probably someone here will find it useful =)

http://ubitio.us/ !!! check out new graphics! =)

If you want the domain bitcoindownloads.com, let me know. I'll sell it to you at cost.

I started working on a bitcoin downloading site when I first discovered Bitcoin. I actually got pretty far with it including setting up a server and domain (obviously). Unfortunately, I ran into two problems.

The first problem was technical. After Bitcoin changed to require a username and password for JSON-RPC, I couldn't get my server to connect to it for the life of me. I probably could have worked through this issue eventually, but I hit another problem I couldn't work around.

About the time I started working on the bitcoin download site, the *AA groups went on another file sharing website attack. I originally thought I could just comply with the DMCA and delete any pirate files after receiving a take down notice. But, the *AA groups started going after websites even if they complied with the DMCA. This was a show stopper for me. I don't want to be exposed to that kind of legal risk.

Hippich, how have you handled the DMCA issue? Are you even in the US?

Honestly, I thought about all of this, but really do not know how to deal with that. I planned to add "Flag this"-kind link to report pirated files, so I can remove them. Do you have any links to cases with this *AA group and filesharing services?

It was public domain! =)) Seriously, I think here main morpheus's concern is mp3s (and probably videos/software on a smaller scale). I too heard a lot of stories about copyright groups going after music files shared on file networks, but after looking through all file sharing services they just offer you contact them and they remove these files if it infringing someone's copyrights. I think, this covered by safe harbor for online service providers provision in DMCA.

You're supposed to be covered by the safe harbor provision in the DMCA, but that won't stop people from suing you anyways. You need the money to take it to court even if you'll probably win. My problem was lack of money.

I couldn't find the specific article that mentioned the problem, but I did find a few on RapidShare which does something similar to your website:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RapidShare#Legal_issues (ok this is really a wikipedia link)
http://torrentfreak.com/rapidshare-not-guilty-of-copyright-infringement-us-court-rules-100520/
http://escobarmediacartel.com/2010/04/17/adult-star-vicky-vette-files-lawsuit-against-rapidshare/

Turns out, the porn industry really seems to hate RapidShare.

I do hope your website succeeds. I think I'll upload something tonight to test it out.

Thank you for sharing this info - need to read it carefully and see how to act next. I believe at this point I am not a threat to these groups and when I become one, I will find a way around it.

Hmmm, I keep getting an internal server error every time I try to upload an image file. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. If you need anymore information about my issue, pm me.

Is there a file size limit?

EDIT: I was able to upload another image file:

http://ubitio.us/file/download/20 (A sexy elf SFW)

It seems like there is a limit of less than 200k. Not sure where the actual limit is. I guess I'll try to find out. Smiley

I revised my sketch again. Sorry for the crappy hands but I hope you like the beginning of my GPU cluster scenery.

You'll have to wait until the next several art evolution before I start drawing really good hands. I am a beginner, after all.

Not sure.. Just tried - worked fine. Can you do screenshot next time?

As for file size limit - I did not set any, but it's probably set somewhere by default. What size you trying to upload? Just tried with 15Mb file size - worked fine.

You should put the bitcoin facuet stuff AFTER the user is done downloading.

Why? I thought main idea is to show a way to get first few bitcents in order to download something. Otherwise random visitor will find no way to get coins and just close page.

It's a distraction from the downloading process.


Here's how I would get new users:

1. Offer free download sponsored by a user.
2. After he finish download, then you could introduce bitcoin, somehow.

Everything seems to be working fine now. I was able to upload all files I wanted to, including the one that kept failing the first time.

I've uploaded the following files:

http://ubitio.us/file/download/22
http://ubitio.us/file/download/23
http://ubitio.us/file/download/24
http://ubitio.us/file/download/25

The first three are wall papers and the last is... um.. not.

See the description for each download for more information.
