  • VBulletin pirates (PLEASE READ)

    Hi,

    I want to bring a site to your attention, which is offending your copyright laws.

    <URL Removed> use a pirated set of VBulletin buttons which are ripped off of your software. I asked them about this and now I get a nice little "You have been banned from these forums" message. I suggest you email their hosters cos they are a nippy little bunch who have not only ripped off the entire Thief series of games, but are now doing the same by stealing the very buttons you see on VBulletin. In fact, I was completely unaware that they didn't use VBulletin until a friend pointed this out. I suggest you email their hoster and pursuade them to get their site removed, or force them to purchase VBulletin. They have been using these buttons for six months now.

      Nice of you to support Jelsoft and report your suspections of a site using piracy. And yeah, reporting the site through http://www.vBulletin.com/contact/piracy.php will do the trick.

      You will not get a message about any action taken.

          He probably thinks of the graphics. You can't use them on other bb's without permission, I think.

            I am not afraid to admit that once upon a time I used the vBulletin message icons and smilies for a small bb that I used to run. It was Ikonboard 2.1, and I didn't like the ones that it came with. But, that site has passed away, and I learned that I wasn't supposed to do that! That was already 3 years ago.

                Hehe. What can I say. They were the really old grey-colored ones that looked like this:

                I know better now to not do that kind of thing. Ahh, back in the days -- when I was only 13. I've matured so much now. It's a good thing too.
