An associate of mine, "Bimbo Virus", is having trouble with a person who is blatantly and obviously ripping off his content.
For reference: here's my associate's track "Cock Dumb", produced in 2003 and recently put back up publicly:
...And here's the pirate's track, "Cock dumb"
It's the same track. My associate runs a patreon where he posts these files. This is literally his job.
Additionally, these files are hypnosis, and pretty powerful stuff at that. Bimbo Virus does content warnings for his work; the pirate does not. This could potentially be a safety issue. Indeed, my associate has had others within the hypnokink community go after him because pirates reupload his work without any safety warnings!
Now, my associate has tried to deal with this problem. It's not hard to see which of these two channels is the real deal, and who is stealing content. The problem is, it requires him to file a DMCA claim, using his real name and address, which, for a variety of reasons, he does not want to do. He's been doxxed and attacked numerous times, and at that point, stopping someone from pirating his content is just not worth the hassle needed to do something like that.
So I guess I'm asking here - is there anything you can do about it?
