> Hypothetically, but not in practice. The papers made available through Sci-Hub are typically downloaded from the publisher's site using (log in) credentials of a university library or similar. Therefore the concern is irrelevant as far as I can tell, because it is extremely unlikely that the document has been tampered with.


I am just saying that I would be wary.

I am not a paragon of virtue. I used to watch ''Scrubs'' from some online website where I could watch episodes of the show without paying anything. Breeching copyright, I suppose I was.

The first episode would be high quality. Play smoothly. After a certain number of episodes the quality would deteriorate. Different ones were adulterated in different ways. The lip synching would be out. Or there would be some kind of a play-speed distortion. Or there would be severely blocked pixellation. Or there would be...

After a while it just didn't feel like it was worth watching anymore. But I was kind of hooked on the show... More likely to buy it?? Perhaps...

I think there is an arms race kind of a situation with respect to people actually investing in mechanisms to try and get people to stop stealing the stuffs already.

LIke with music, sometimes, how there will be insertions of 'you are listening to bbc radio one' or... Seriously disturbed bad-trip nightmare inducing tones edited in to where the feel good ride was abotu to peak up...

I would genuinely worry that people might do something like that to cruical bits of the data to try and 'punish' people from pirating the content.

I hear you that it is unlikely that content has been tampered with... But my concern really would be that that might not be for long...

I don't know.

Do you have another means / mechanism for access? I would just... Try real hard to access things legitimately if at all you possibly can. That's all.
