  • Help with my forum - Is it allowed to be hosted?

    My friend has a vBulletin forum and I downloaded the files because I'm a HUGE vBulletin fan. I'm hosting it on my host here: http://webmasters.webatu.com/forum/index.php - I believe he does have a license for his forum, his friend got it for him.

    Anyways, I don't want to get in trouble as I'm only 12 lol. :P - But am I allowed to host this vBulletin forum? IT'S A REALLY OLD VERSION.

      But that's what I'm wondering, if he bought a license for himself and handed me a download and I uploaded it to my site, is that anything I can get in trouble for?

        Yep.

        The license can only be used for one site, and one site only. If both you and your friend are running a forum using files from only one license, then it's considered Piracy and illegal.

          Oh, well that sucks. Since my parents don't even know that I post on forums (LOL) and I don't have PayPal. But I'm almost done convincing my mom to get me a PayPal, but I'm waiting a few years before I show her that I actually post on forums. I have a feeling she already knows. :P - Shes walked by before. Anyways, TO THE POINT. I have the money to buy vBulletin but as I've said and listed before, I can't. I would if I could.

          Back to the crappy free forums....phpBB3 and MyBB SUUUUCCCCKKKKK!

          I've removed the forums.
