    Your only choice is reporting it.

      In my opinion, I would contact the user running the nulled vBulletin, tell him to purchase a license or his site will be shut down.

          Report the site here: http://www.vbulletin.com/piracy.php

          We will then investigate it from there.

          We do not disclose any information about who has placed the report or about the status of the report to the reporting person.

            I don't quite understand what you do or if it works. The only thing I can assume is that the website gets checked with a database of valid licenses and their tied website locations, and if it's not there, the address gets sent onto pirate reports. But what happens there?

            This used to be a nice place; what the hell's gone wrong?

              We have an internal system, and are working together with piratereports.com, and a lawyer. And we will not disclose any further details.

                Speaking from experience from when I used to work for a Webhosting company, and not as a representative of vBulletin, as I do not know the process internally regarding piracy, etc etc, I'd say the following.

                Generally, the owner of the website will generally be contacted with a Cease & Desist, and/or a DMCA.

                If there is no response to this, then the hosting provider generally gets sent a takedown request, and it goes further up the trail.

                I'd suggest that you report it through our piracy system (http://www.vbulletin.com/piracy.php) and include as much detail as you can, and if you are contacted with a C&D/DMCA/Takedown request, then comply with them.

                Being a webhoster, it's your responsibility to cover your back at all steps, so reporting won't do you any harm, if the site's illegal, then they'll get contacted, if it's legal, then there's no worries

                Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, and nor do the above comments represent the vBulletin Piracy team. They are purely information that I have gathered from my previous experiences in web hosting
