  • What Can Jelsoft Do When...

    What can Jelsoft do to a pirated forum when it's being hosted on a personal server of someone? I know of one that hosted on the computer in someone's house (apparently) and I know it's pirated.

    They would probably contact their ISP.

      Especially because hosting stuff is usually against an ISP's TOS

              What if they live in a oceangoing cruise ship with no registered country and hack into a satellite network to obtain broadband speeds and have 50 shared Linux boxes and one of them is running vB?

                Actually, for residential DSL from PacBell/SBC, you can buy static IP's to host your own small server (not against TOS).

                  At some point you have to connect to a network which will care, most of them dont want a lawsuit, most disconnect or contact their users after an email.

                    Well... might be a little harsh for a pirated copy of vBulletin.

                          would it be worth it? I mean the amount of money it would take to fight it?

                            Yeah, would $85 or $160 be a better choice?

                              Yes, I agree it's silly for anyone to rip it off in the first place, but not sure how much sense it would make to file a lawsuit against some teenager that's running it on his "server" in his bedroom. It will obviously cost Jelsoft money to file the suit, and all they will get out of it will be the little punk shutting down his board, and probably only temporarily.
