    no, people don't steal it because it's overpriced. It's the cheapest and most powerful commercial bulletin board on the market. The only real competition in this market is UBB, and they are almost twice the price. people steal it because they are ****ty little thieving bastards who wouldn't have bought it if it were $5. They get caught and shut down eventually, though. You should see the whiny letters we get from the thieving little bastards acknowledging that they knew they were using it illegally, but it really wasn't fair that we got their hosting company to shut down their sites.
    Of course, before we take this kind of action, an email is sent to the site owner requesting they either purchase the license or remove the board. They usually ignore it because they don't think that anything can be done to them. You'd be surprised at how cooperative most hosting companies are at shutting down sites using and/or distributing pirated software.

        Could we please stay ontopic in this thread?
        Discussing anti-piracy issues sure is nice and interesting, but I'd rather like to hear if there is a progress in the Ikonboard import script.
        Any news? Thanks.

          Why?

          The price is low in my opinion.

            It is being tested at the moment and with any luck it will be ready for use very soon.
