I've recently been putting up some original work of mine on this site in various languages and recently I came across something interesting. I found that my work was being posted without anyone even asking me on various sites. I'm fine with posting my work on other sites; I just would like to know where it's going. The troubling part is that for some reason my computer said that the majority of these sites have viruses on them . . . I used a Linux computer and an Oracle Solaris computer to view these sites, being that the malware was supposedly infectious to Windows systems. As a test, I put up a poem I wrote a while ago in Spanish, "En busca de almas", and waited to see how long it would be uploaded to one of these sites. In less than thirty minutes it was posted on this site (with malicious software on it) and I traced back the sender to their exact address. Can the person who's doing this kindly send me a private message to address this? I also have your name and email . . . so please just contact me before I have to invade your privacy . . .

Nemrég voltam szállt az eredeti néhány művem ezen az oldalon a különböző nyelveken, és a közelmúltban rábukkantam valami érdekes. Hogy én találtam munkám volt, hogy írt anélkül, hogy bárki is kért engem különböző helyszíneken. Jól vagyok és a munkámat kiküldetés más oldalakon; Csak szeretném tudni, hogy hová megy. Az aggasztó az egészben, hogy valamilyen oknál fogva a számítógép azt mondta, hogy a legtöbb ezek a helyek a vírusok rájuk. . . Régebben egy Linux számítógép és egy Oracle Solaris számítógépen megtekintheti Ezek a helyek, a rosszindulatú program volt, hogy állítólag, hogy a fertőző Windows rendszereket. Próbaképpen tettem fel egy verset írtam egy ideje spanyol, „A kereső a lelkek”, és vártam, hogy milyen hosszú lenne feltölteni egy ilyen oldalak. Kevesebb mint harminc perc alatt azt ezen az oldalon (rosszindulatú szoftver rajta), és én vezethető vissza, hogy a feladó Pontos címet. A személy, aki csinál esta szíves küldj privát üzenetet ez ellen? Nekem is van a neved és e-mail. . . ezért kérjük, keressen meg, mielőtt azt kell támadják meg a magány . . . Tchau Wink smile

It's probably a bot that's scraping the site for content and not a real person. I'm not sure how much you can do about things like that.

I assumed that. However, unluckily for the person who made them they all lead to the same source . . . In fact, I even have a picture of their face.

Sorry to hear this happened to you... What I could suggest is that if you know who they are, you could write a PM to lt and they'll be banned - we definitely do not encourage stealing translations.

But copy + paste they could do without having an account...

Which sites contain the malware? I sometimes look for lyrics via google and would like to know if there are lyrics sites that contain malware...

I wouldn't suggest going on these sites but some of the few examples I do remember are: letra24.top (Portuguese/English), letra365.top (Spanish/English), versuri.club (Romanian/English), and tekst-piosenki.info (Polish/English). The person who made these sites is a Hungarian software engineer named Krisztian Molnar who works at AdNovum in Budapest. He registered these sites in the Hungarian city of Szeged and in fact I even have pictures of his face. I think there might be bots posing as users on this site . . . for example check out: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/translator/marineclerot. There are a bunch of them. I don't know if these are bots for sure but I just find it oddly suspicious that there is a large number of them and that they were last active December 31, 1969 when they registered on days like February 11, 2013 . . .

I've just checked whois and indeed it's the same person. Do you mean this nice looking guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H71BCsM73ZE ?

I guess he steals only the lyrics, but not the translations. Am I correct? (I'm not going to check these sites.)

He steals only lyrics but that isn't him. I also notice that he hasn't only stolen my original work but also Phantasmagoria and SilentRebel83's work too. This guy is more saavy so he hides himself well on the web . . . I have a link to his LinkedIn here if you want to take a look: https://hu.linkedin.com/in/kriszti%C3%A1n-moln%C3%A1r-35576a117. I'm not sure how to upload the picture of him but his LinkedIn has a picture of him . . .

I was of course kidding. I’ve found him on LinkedIn too. I was afraid to check these sites that you mentioned, but what I noticed from Google search at least he gives credits to the authors.

I would advice you to write similar comments about your copyrights like I have them in my profile and they are automatically shown beneath my translations. Of course that doesn’t guarantee anything, but some people get frightened seeing them. Maybe bots check them too.

You should write to Lt (here you will find the “send PM” link: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/translator/lt) and describe the situation. Its important to give the link to all the users’ accounts that you suspect to be bots, like the one that you’ve linked, so that the admins could check them before they get deleted.

@O.A. Ramos If possible, can you send me a PM to where you've seen him post my translations? Also please send me his contact information, does he only know Hungarian? Thank you.

I just want to contact him to let him know I didn't give him permission, then I'm going to find a way to have copy + paste disabled somehow, or hide a disclaimer in the lyrics themselves. I'm not bothered that he'd steal my translations, just a little insulted that he wouldn't ask first. Welp, that's the internet for you.

Ellen, for sure he speaks English, but I'm afraid he may ignore you. If that happens the best way would be to threaten him that you would inform his bosses that he operates few sites which violate the copyrights and it means his activity must be seen as illegal. As he's a software specialist he knows very well what he's doing and I don't think his company would be happy because of their worker's activity and that may cost him his job.
