Someone scanned a book, uploaded it to rapidshare and then posted the link in the forum on my website.
It's a very useful and relevant link, but he apparently committed copyright violation. Should I delete the link, do I get burned if I leave it on?
it doesnt help u, link competition w/ your revenue creating links
Personally, I would take it down purely because as you said it is in copyright violation. Maybe replace it to a link for the legitimate copy of the book, like a partial view in Google Books?
Thanks. I think I'll take it down after a few days. The reason is that the book is very hard to find in shops. People were complaining that they can't find it and this user decided to scan and share it.
That's no reason to leave the link there for even 5 minutes after you found this out.
