I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. manual url submissions.

    There needs to be a "Blast This Page" button on the menu bar dropdown, so that you can blast a page you find outside of the blasty search interface. Or at least have a place to enter an url manually to blast. I came across one site but can't get it to come up in the blasty search results, so I can't blast it.

    • Removal Notice to Pirating Sites

      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?

      • Create an alert system for new infringing search results

        It'd be useful to have some kind of alert system (like Google Alerts but more efficient) which notifies users when new infringing search results are available on Google.

        • DMCA notices

          Is it possible to send DMCA take down notices to the sites being removed from Google searches? I feel like even though the sites are being blocked, people who frequent the hosting sites will still be able to find them.

          • Adding offending URLs

            I run Google Alerts and occasionally get advice of a pirated copy. Could there be a way to enter offending website Urls so I can subsequently Blast them?

            • AmazonAWS cloud service used for stolen books

              Many of the blasts rejected by Google were using AmazonAWS as the host. This is a cloud service operated by Amazon. Including Amazon in the name may make these stolen books appear more legitimate. I have complained to AmazonAWS and included all the offending URLs. Are other authors having this problem?

              • Danger of clicking pirate site links?

                Blasty is asking us to manually check potentially infringing sites but couldn't these pirate sites be dangerous for us to visit via malware, viruses, toolbars, endless popup loops, home page overrides, url redirects, etc.? I don't feel safe clicking on the links, plus some seem to go to offensive adult content. In most cases, it seems far safer (as well as faster and more convenient) to rely on Google's page summary description to see if the page is infringing, but this could result in some "false positives." Also, clicking some of the reported urls takes me to pages with endless…

                • Blasty needs to work with all browsers.

                  I'd like to suggest that Google chrome not be necessary to use Blasty. I installed it, and it messed up other applications I use so I had to uninstall it. Looks like I will need to install/uninstall just to use Blasty. Chrome is not optimal or even compatible for many systems.

                  • links that indirectly lead to pirated copies

                    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…

                    • 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?

                        As well as the ability to issue a Google take-down, an automated DMCA takedown that could be sent straight to the site would also be really useful!

                              • 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?

                                          Your service is a great. Really like it.
                                          But also it will be very very useful if it will be possible to automatically send DMCA report to file hosting services. There are a lot of services like this http://turbobit.net/download/folder/1776831 And every time when I see my product posted, I go to "report abuse" section, fill up my info and send it. About 40 times a week. And every time the same boring process. That will be great if it be possible to do it in one click as in google.
