hi bitfade

yes, it is absolutely legal and ok, cause you (p)refer someone to this file and you don’t say that it’s your file, so its ok

+1 – the buyer still buys your file here, and you get the com, while the referer gets a com for bringing a new buyer here. Everyone’s happy :-)

Anyone who wants to do that with my files go ahead :D

While there are positives on that, I feel there is only one sideeffect. If someone searches through google to quickly arrive a relevant resource, probably your flashden item and those ad sites will be listed almost nearly in a page. If they clicked that referrer site, thay might feel tired of reaching the original site or take diversions from that site!

@ vf: it’s a refferal, so it contains the link to the file on flashden.

I mean the same. Whatever may be the form, the user does several unnecessary clicks which is not going to be a guaranteed result. Mostly the people who refers other items are targtting only the file that are already popular. Note that!

that’s different if they are claiming it’s their own work. It’s actually illegal to submit work on Adobe Exchange if you don’t have permission from the original author of the work – which is in the Adobe site terms. there was one guy who did this and he had to remove those submissions which where other FD member files.
