10k+ users will be able to see that this answer was removed since it was found to be in violation of our Piracy policy. But how exactly was this answer violating this policy?
According to the website that is linked in that answer (which I am intentionally leaving out of this question) it states:
We do not support piracy and never will. If any party owning copyrights, feels that their rights are fully or partially breached, my logic is flawed or otherwise displeasing of content creators, the content will be removed or edited to comply with the requirements they set us.
I know it's just a website stating this and doesn't really have any jurisdiction, but does this not matter in any way?
I'm not defending that the answer shouldn't have been removed. I actually contemplated about flagging it, but I wasn't sure if it was supporting piracy because of the disclaimers and information at the bottom of the linked website. I'm just curious as to how it violated our policy.
Edit: I'm linking this meta answer which is what you are directed to when you click on the "illegal content" link when you flag/vote to close a post for this reason. According to that answer:
as long as you're not actively advocating to pirate content (or looking for us to help you do so), you're welcome to share your knowledge, or ask questions.
Was that answer unintentionally advocating pirated content (despite the website saying it doesn't support piracy)?
