    I really cant afford scripts right now, usually I would buy them but right now I do not have the funds.

    I am looking at a mass blog creator. What is the risk of getting caught using a stolen script such as this?

    thx guys.

    If you know a bit about scripting, change it a bit and remove the footprints, then I'd say the risk will be near zero ;)

    I can change HTML and CSS, but dont have much clue with PHP.

    Isn't there a way I could password protect the script files or something?

    If the script is only for your personnal use, it doesn't really matter, no one can access the source code of a php script, so no one can tell whether you have bought it, stole it, or code it yourself ;)

    Yeah, if by personal use you mean generating tons of blogs to spam google with?

    In what case would it not be personal?

    thx

    I mean "personnal use" for "using the script yourself", instead of giving it away or selling it ;)

    The script I intend to use right now is probably rs2bmi, would I be safe using that if I redesign the admin login screen for example?

    thx
