Hey guys, I can't find this on G. Is it safe to promote fake cracks? US? Europe?
What do u think?
game crack is illegal, fake it just make it more.
Okay, thanks mate. I'm a newbie so I will not touch this niche....yet
You should be alright running in this niche, as long as it's not the actual crack, it would be just considered unethical, and even for actual cracks, they rarely go after the creater
Well it is not illegal, unless you sell them, but you have to take something into account: they treat all cracks as valid and is up to you to prove they are fake in court. Have that in mind.
If you are doing this, I would do your best to remain anonymous and separated from it. Also, you're going to just annoy people if its a fake.
Illegal, then again you could always try it and see for yourself.
What is a "fake game crack"? You mean a crack for a game? Yeah I'd say that's illegal.
Yes it is.
Depends on what you are selling.
If you are selling a cracked executable then it is most likely illegal since most of the code in the executable was not written by you, thus illegal.
However, if you sell a program that only contains your own code and patches/cracks a targeted application, this is not illegal because you are only selling your own code. This is similar to you simply selling the instructions of how to crack a specific application. Nothing wrong with selling the method to crack something.
imo i think its legal
Thanks guys, you have been very helpful.
Well, the idea was to promote the crack that will not crack the game, but to open browser and my site. The code would be mine.
I think it is O.K to go with this niche if you are in some asian country.
Well, I ran something similar for a while - I directed people to my page offering various game/software keys where I had a bunch of cover images that said "click here for xyz game or software" and content locked the page. After they completed the offer and clicked on the link they were just taken to a page that said "Sorry! We are out of keys for today but are working hard to get more. Check back tomorrow!" . It worked pretty well but was a little too blackhat for me so I dropped it and moved on.
Its not illegal if you are sharing for free but if you are selling them it is illegal....
I doubt you would be pursued, but you'd be receiving some bad internet karma.
first of all it's unfair towards those people who will download it expecting that it's a crack for their, perhaps, favorite game. I doubt that anyone could like such "trick" though against game cracks I don't have any objections and often use them from such well known groups as Skidrow, Theta and others.
Yes its illegal, don't do that!
I think you should avoid doing that... not worth it...
No it isn't illegal unless you do something wrong with it.
You will receive DMCA notice though.
