If someone has to be employed or taken off another job to do that for most of a day. Very. Remember you're checking for a couple of games, now check for several hundred as that's what you'd expect the portals to do. You also didn't factor in searching the web high and low to find all these links. I value my own time quite highly, would I make more money by working on a new game or spending a few hours to take down a couple of links? Of course, if there's only a handful of these links around at one time then it's quite cheap but I reckon all you're doing is pissing in the ocean of piracy. And no doubt even if rapidshare links were kept on top of the argument would just shift to the newsgroups or ftp sites. I'm not saying nothing should be done, but just because it takes a few seconds to send an email doesn't mean it's cheap to prevent piracy. And I think all the complaints should be aimed at the DRM solutions but everyone seems content to make it the portals fault.
