    I was just kidding.

    P.S. Some of my friends are not exactly on the same evolutionary scale as the rest of us.

    I could give a portion of the money I make to friends to start pirate forums and them report them.
    sounds like my law teacher who used to drive people into walls when he was younger..... .


    I was talking upon a sucessful conviction, thus it would mean that people would not report if jelsoft did not take action. If they did take action more people would report, and people would stop pirating when they knew they would be hounded.

    Works out well for all

    Yeah. But I would think Jelsoft would sue your friends eventually, or, they would catch on, and yank your license.

    Another thing. If you were to be rewarded, Jelsoft would most likely lose big $$$, going through false reports on forums. Most forums that are pirated, (Arrr...*Sorry, couldn't resist*) are either being hosted by a nation with lenient copyright laws, or the hoster doesn't care, as long as THEY make money. Although...usually, after Jelsoft threatens to sue them, they come around.

    In the end...all pirated forums WILL be caught eventually.

    Personally I find it a bit rich that Jelsoft requests that you report piracy yet dosent reward those who do in even the smallest way :|
    It's a breach of privacy. They don't respond to pirate reports, so if you were rewarded, it kind of gives away the status, don't you think?

    Oh wait, they don't get any money for shutting down illegally run boards. Plus they're a company in business to make money. Good luck convincing them, though, lol.

    To your other question of if it is morally wrong to steal something you never would have bought.

    That statement is more of "they weren't going to make any money off me" rather than the actual "taking something that I don't have a right to take".
    on a random note, I like your sig quotes. Very true

    But a point to consider is this..... If they were never going to buy it, is it still a morally wrong theft? Obviously from a legal point it is ^_^

    Just an thought on my side. Im of the opinion that to use vBulletin illegally is wrong because people put work into it.

    (btw I have a license )
