Bolt Sharing represents everything that is bad about the file locker industry. A site established to do nothing other than rip off content and software producers by stealing then sharing copyright infringing files.
Most people have not heard of this site, it doesn’t jump into ones mind as a legitimate place to go and store files, however the hardcore pirates know it and they use it nefariously as a way station of theft.
The front page looks unassuming and provides no indication of the massive scale theft taking place on BoltSharing’s servers.
The fact is that BoltSharing carries terabytes of copyright infringement, there’s virtually nothing else. Every file infringes copyright, every dollar transacted as an uploader earning money per download or as a downloader paying to download content is tainted.
Read on for more about BoltSharing.
Like many file lockers we have investigated BoltSharing has an affiliate program to pay up-loaders of copyright infringing content.
BoltSharing pays up to $15 per 1000 downloads, a nice incentive to upload lots of infringing content. Popular content does the best, games, movies, popular software titles.
It seems to us that the incentive has worked as looking within folders of the BoltSharing servers we see no end to infringement.
We extensively surveyed BoltSharing.com and found thousands of items of infringing content amounting to many terabytes of data.
Today, coinciding with this article, our report to Paypal has resulted in BoltSharing being deprived of payment processing. We’re going to make sure it stays that way by keeping a close eye on this site until it’s shut down.
