    • Search by Series Name, too

      Often, a whole book series will be offered on some pirate sites, without listed a particular individual book title, leaving it outside the realm of Blasty's search.

      Adding an additional "Search by Series" could find many more illegal links.

      • content check of 5 pages

        ebooks are stolen from a friend and placed under a new title. Could you start checking content of 5 pages at the choice of the author?

          • Response time

            How about responding to messages? That's quite a concept nowadays. Providing good customer service and not ignoring people keeps people around. You should try it.

            • Adding More Than One Cover For a Given Book

              It would be helpful to be able to upload multiple versions of the covers (assuming you use the covers to help find infringed content). Some of my books have been published for long enough that they have been re-released with a new cover.

              Thanks,

              Dean

              • Changing Asset for Blasts from 'Ready to Blast' Section

                In the Alerts-Ready to Blast section, it would be helpful to have the ability to pick/change the asset being used in the DMCA. I'm finding instances there where there is infringing content, but the automated process has picked the wrong asset and I can't swap to a different asset before blasting the site.

                Thanks,

                Dean

                  We need a way to send you the URL from a Google alert so that it can be determined if it's a pirate site, or a legitimate site.

                    I would LOVE it if it were possible to also instantly send a notice to the pirating website to remove the copyrighted material from their site whilst Blasting from Google. Is it possible to add that feature?

                    • Manual url submission.

                      Give us a place to submit links we've found independently or make such a submission process more apparent? That would be fantastic. Someone just brought a link to my attention (http://www.freebest-books.com/Romance/Broken_Burned/55.html) and I don't know if it has been one that has been blasted already or if it is one I can submit on my own or what have you.

                      • Not an idea - but a compliment!

                        Just wanted to praise your service! I've been using it here & there since about the time you offered it. I hadn't used it though for a few months. Just finished "Check Google Now" on my books and I think you guys have greatly improved how everything works! Good job!!! Thanks!

                        • pdf lists of links to pirated books not blasted

                          I have noticed that sites are getting round being blasted by making books available for free by putting up pdfs and then listing the books on the pdfs as links. When you click onto these links it takes you through to a membership page. When you join you are then able to download the book for free. This is a problem because blasty cannot find a direct download link on the page that comes up on google because it's several links further on in the chain. If there was one thing I'd ask blasty to do it's to also remove…

                          • Program an Automatic Check every 30 days.

                            I'm new to the service so I apologize if this has already been suggested but it seems like you have to manually hit the Check Google now button. It would be great if there was a way to program it to automatically check your content say every 30 days or once every three months, etc.

                            • Differentiate Strikes, Rejects, and pages that disappear

                              You really need two levels of response. Pages that were found in the google search and were infringing that disappeared before a blast was submitted should be differentiated from completed or true rejected blasts. It is quite confusing and more than a little frustrating to review a blast to get a page doesn't exist error or even worse to get the "no infringement found" message. Including pages that disappeared before they could be blasted are not true strikes.

                              • why is Google rejecting blasts?

                                I see that 10 of the Blasts I requested have been rejected by Google. I check out these pages before I hit Blast, and am convinced they are offering my books before I hit that button. So it would be helpful to understand what Google looks at when they determine these sites are NOT infringing, because they sure look like they are to me. It could be that Google is able to see into these sites in a way we (I) cannot?

                                  Many of the pages that pull up are not a direct link to the pirated copy of my book but has a link at the bottom or to the side that is. Perhaps to avoid the chance of getting a strike for blasting a page that leads to a pirated copy instead of going directly to the listing itself, there could be a check box menu for the blast option with options for why: illegal downloads on page. Link to illegal downloads from page. or something.

                                  There are so many links popping up multiple times that I don't want it…

                                      Hi,

                                      I was going through the "Needing review" section, and often, websites are reported because, they are, indeed, piracy websites offering links to pirated copies of my books, but the page Blasty identified is not the page where my books can be downloaded. I don't know if I should "blast" those links or not. On one hand, the page I'm being asked to review is not a direct link to my content, but on the other, they're obviously offering such links.
                                      Another gray area is all the "Lilplay" style website: they don't actually have our books, but they use the…

                                      • Remove whitelisted sites from the "Needing Review" list

                                        When going through the "Needing Review" list, I whitelist sites that I know are genuine, ie. book bloggers and reviewers.

                                        It would be useful if those sites disappeared from the Needing Review list once they've been whitelisted, so only sites that need checking remain on the list.

                                        Many thanks!

                                          If there is a word "review" close to the book title, it should not be reported for blasting. Maybe adjust your filter so review blogs don't accidentally get reported?
