    Does vBulletin currently offer rewards for reporting software pirates? Such as licenses or something, like I report 5 pirate distributers and I get a leased license, with no support.

      You think you would, costs you little money and stops your product from being illegally distrubiuted and used. Which in turn could mean more profit.

        It also costs us money and time to help shut down the sites.

          We don't provide rewards for piracy reports. Otherwise what would stop pirates from turning themselves or each other in for the reward?

              Well a lot of sites will remove software if asked. Now others won't care but many will.

                That's illogical. Pirating the software only to receieve a free copy of the software you stole makes no sense.

                  To get direct access to support and hacks from vbulletin.org and downloads from this forum are more than sufficient reasons to do this - if we provided rewards, which we don't.
