Hmm. I buy software. Sometimes the software developer disappears and the software stops calling home and my purchased copy stops working. I am going to go hunt for a cracked version. That we "we will release a final version to all purchasers" crap they say is usually not true.
Yeah I thought about that but I would tell them that I bought it for them with the cost of membershipNo it is not a good idea to give away cracked software because it is illegal. You might iswell create a heading on your membership site saying: "Giving away illegal software" lol
nah im not going to do that the software company has a reseller program and I joined so it cool .No it is not a good idea to give away cracked software because it is illegal. You might iswell create a heading on your membership site saying: "Giving away illegal software" lol
Are you even serious??? Cracked software is way illegal. Ever here of copyright infringement?
Here's the facts: Illegal distribution of software can subject a seller to be arrested on felony charges with fines up to US$250,000 and prison terms of up to 5 years. You are also liable for Civil penalties which can easily end up in the millions.
I hate to always be the "downer" here but people (in general) just seem to not know anything when it comes to basic laws.
For those interested here's more info on software piracy:Code:
But seriously, the "safest" way to do it is to have your site hosted in a country where they don't enforce or have any laws relating to pirated/cracked warez. I believe Russia is one and possibly China. Without searching online, I couldn't tell you for sure.
