If you use a nulled theme, do you buy it once you start making money?

    My site runs on thesis 1.8b. It isnt out yet but it is a nulled version. Now that my site is making a bit of cash and getting popular, is it worth it to spend the 50 bucks and just buy the rights to use thesis?

    I'm sure they would go after any popular site not running a licensed version of their theme.

    Anyone?

    I intended to do so. Nulled themes...tools...if I can make money with it, its worth to give the developers some share.

    No, because most of the time there is always something about the theme i dont like and move onto the next theme and move on to the next etc. Im still looking for the perfect theme.

    It depends if it's something that truly has made a difference in my business/gets exceptional support and constant upgrades/I use it everyday.

    I do have the advanced newspaper theme on one of my sites and the support by the admin is exceptional they're known for having the best customer service for wordpress themes on the web. He's a great guy and his team answers questions usually within a day. All the changes I been able to make to my site because of his help have been worth a lot more than what I paid for the theme.

    When it comes to software I could name scrapebox. Use it everyday, always getting upgraded by the maker who cares about his software.

    In these type of situations because i use these everyday/get exceptional support and upgrades I much rather buy them. If I couldn't afford to buy them I would still pay for them later when I made some money as I rather be able to get support and updates for something I use everyday.

    Be careful if you're using null themes downloaded from forums or other sharing sites.

    Couple of months back I grabbed a nulled joomla theme, and used for my business website. It was fine for a week. Then all it was showing was a lengthy message from an Egyptian hacker, proudly talking about how easily he could hack into my site.

    Lesson : Spend some money, if you are doing serious business.

    With Thesis , it's worth buying as u really need the support forum if you want to get the best out of it.

    It's all karma my friend. Just remember that a poor thief gets a slap on the wrist, but a rich thief gets raped in jail. Seriously though, don't be another greedy asshole in this world. I understand using nulled tools to get off the ground but once you succeed you should show them respect in return.

    Like the posters above, if the program has really helped me in my success then yes even after downloading the nulled version I'll return and pay them just out of respect.

    Yes, it is better to buy the original theme once you start earning from the site.
