Since when PH is featuring products that rip off artists?

@madebyues I hope they take it down
@madebyues sorry to hijack your comment but this extension is malware!!! This is the decrypted content of background.js: http://pastebin.com/p5jGwMny As you can see in "manageEdit" & "manageEditUSA" functions, it will append "tag" parameter to every requests on amazon. Please report this to PH and Google to take this malware down.
@redphx @madebyues Oh deary me. Well now I feel like an utter Pr*ck for hunting this. Will be requesting Product Hunt to take this down immediately. Cheer for the heads up.
@mgpwr Thanks. Tried to contact PH on both Twitter & Email but still no response.
@redphx I have had a reply from them already. They have marked it as malicious. I have replied asking them to completely remove it.
Surely this (although very useful) isn't legal?

This is definitely against the interest of all artists and hard working people in the music field. If an artist decided to put out their track for free download - great, but otherwise tools like this only "damage" the work of people who put heart and soul into this. In addition, often artists put tracks for free download in exchange for a follow (or something similar) and that 1) brings joy to these guys (seeing follower count raising) 2) helps them gain popularity. Using tool like this one basically destroys one of the few ways an up-and-coming artist to create community. I know there are heaps of tools like this extention, but does it really need to be promoted on PH?

this is designed to rip off artists
Dear Hunter, this bookmarklet does what it says (imho it goes against artists) but it injects an iframe pointing to one of your websites. Not really fair, I think. Not even served on https, easy to spot!
@lucabobbio EDIT: Amongst other things brought to my attention I have emailed product to remove this from their list and my association through posting.
@mgpwr @lucabobbio Why does it need to have permissions on amazon, google and facebook? http://imgur.com/vml9OYJ And the entire scripts are encrypted: http://imgur.com/ujoeP3f Looks super suspicious to me. I recommend everyone not to use it.
