    You'll lose your license and your site will be shutdown.

      Are you trying to test how far Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd are prepared to go?

      They will take legal action if the matter cannot be resolved in a civil way.

        When you break the license agreement we revoke the license. If you continue to use the software we consider legal steps. What's wrong with paying and playing by the rules?

        The license of vBulletin is $85 for a lease of 12 months, or $160 for a one time fee to use for unlimited months. The branding free is $120, and a one time fee.

        If you don't want to pay for the software: Don't use it. Go with SMF or something.
        If you want to pay for vBulletin, pick a license, and if you don't want to pay for the branding free option (which is an optional purchase!) you simply keep the copyright in place and respect it.

          I'd say you'd get away with it... until vBulletin finds out. I've already had clients of mine have their vBulletin software taken down due to a violation of their terms. vBulletin has their own abuse department that sends out those nasty emails to the server administrator about taking action if something isn't done.

          This, in my opinion, was a very stupid question.
