  • Legal Action.

    Hi, i bought a licensed copy of vbulletin few time ago and i install it on a host payed by me and other people (They pay ONLY the host not the license for vbulletin). Now after some times we got some problem and i leave this group. I delete from FTP the vbulletin + addons files, backup the database on my own pc and delete it from remote mysql server of the host.

    Now they ask me to give them the Database of forum. i said that i can't give them because there are personal information about all users that was registered on it and because was the database of my own license.

    They say wanna make legal action against me... i ask vbuleltin staff pls to help me saying if i must give them the Database or i must not.

    Sorry i post in this section because i dont fine 1 better...

    Umm. If you were the original owner of that database and forum used on it then you should have the right to keep the db for reasons! But why would they want the database though ?

      You need to consult with a lawyer. We cannot give you legal advice.

        I can't imagine that someone will threaten you with legal repurcussions over a shared message board hosting situation.

        I'm no lawyer, but they're talking through their hats. Sounds like empty threats to me. - (Vbulletin Forum Hosting) - (Our vBulletin forum Managed & hosted by MJWebhosting)
