Why does R18 allow file lockers to promote them?

Sites like JAVForMe, JAVGuru, and more openly steal content yet also have very clear links to R18 in spite of the R18 affiliate program's ToS forbidding affiliates from committing copyright infringement.

This is well beyond something like various big tube sites that have some amount of plausible deniability. You have sites like JAVGuru write on blog posts on the site itself that he is uploading content on his own (not user-submitted). They're openly stealing from studios and for every 10,000 illegal views a movie gets if one person decides to click on an R18 link, the chances of him buying that movie or any movie are close to zero.

I'm well aware that these sites get lots of traffic because free attracts flies like leftovers in an open trash can and thus have the ability to send R18 a lot of hits, but allowing them to continue to act as affiliates is a slap in the face to any webmaster wishing to run a legit and legal business.

Do you think this arrangement is helping or hurting the JAV industry?

I hope so too!

Not trying to attack you and my apologies if that post came off that way. Rather, as a representative of them, I feel this is a really important thing they should clarify their stance on. One of the larger studios I work with (WAAP) was far from happy to see their content on these sites in full with the R18 banner above it and is planning on bringing this up with the IPPA soon.

As someone who has taken a lot of time to forge actual relationships with studios and pay 6-figures USD a year in licensing, I'm far from happy seeing these illicit sites so brazenly steal yet act like it's fine because they're also linking to R18.

Are you working for them directly in Tokyo or are you still in USA?

If the former, feel free to contact me (support AT zenra dot net) and perhaps we can meet up some time. I'm not that close to Tokyo, but do go there for business from time to time (I was just there a month ago and will most likely be going again in the spring).

Definitely must be a rough decision to make, if getting lots of traffic from an affiliate source that you're not completely happy with, in terms of content. Because we all know if 1 sponsor dropped that affiliate, 100 other sponsors (competitors) would happily welcome them.

R18 site is really nice though, they have like, everything JAV!!! Congrats Leroy
