  • Reported a pirate site.

    I repoted a site using vbulletin without a license, but it's been a month and it's still there.

    This is how they replied to me when I asked the same question before:

    Something is ALWAYS done. Keep in mind that Jelsoft is not some all-powerful entity that can smite down illegal sites with a wave of it's mighty hand. The process requires cooperation from the web hosting companies and others as well.

    Some sites may be hosted in places that don't respect copyright laws. Some may have purchased a licenseafter getting their warning. Some just pick up and move to another host after getting shut down. And some may just take a while to get shut down.

    Thank you for your reports. Believe me, we DO follow-up within the limits of our power.

      How do you tell if a site is illegal or not? What should one look for?

        There's no way of knowing unless you got some sort of special psychic powers . Truth be told, only Jelsoft and their respective affiliates, licensors, and agents know who's licensed or not.

          Maybe they bought a license after getting a warning by Jelsoft too... You can't know and you'll never know.

            Also a good percentage of reported sites are actually licensed. Very often people try to use us to give a particular site they don't like trouble.

                        Well it has movies and stuff for download for free so I assumed that would break the license agreement, and 2, it says this at the bottom:

                        Code:
                        Powered by vBulletin® Version 3.8.1 Nulled by DGT
                         Jelsoft has really pissed me off.
                        So i am like 99% sure it is

                          Lol. Well that might be a hint.
                          Anybody who says "it can't be done" will usually be interrupted by somebody who is already doing it.

                              Jeez, doing a search for Nulled by DGT shows that guy is pretty busy. Been hacking forums and other software for a while now. It's really a wonder a braggart like that can't be caught, prosecuted and hung by his/her typing fingers for life.
