  • Nulled copy use

    Sorry, this isn't really a pre-sale question, but I don't know where else to post this. One of my friends runs a site using vBulletin, and with his current cash state, I don't think he could afford vB so I am thinking he is using a nulled copy. Before I report him, could I ask what you do when you find out someone is using a nulled copy? Do you just ask them to remove it and then if they don't, take legal action? I just don't want my friend to get into trouble.

        Well, just forgot I said that I reported him. I just want to know what will happen if he keeps using the nulled copy.

          hello,

          there are two things possible here

          1) vBulletin antipiracy agent will check if there is a valid licence for the site mentioned

          a) No licence (pirated copy) He will be contacted with the question to either buy a licence or remove vBulletin from his site (and destroy the database)

          b)if he doesn't buy a licence (and continue to use vBulletin) legal action will be possible but it requirers the cooperation of law enforcement ,hosts etc etc vBulletin cannot take down an illegal copy with a waive of it's mighty hand ...

          c) exact details about antipiracy things will never be provided (forbidden by privacy law)

            if you 'friend' keeps using it, expect full legal action when they find it. Also, there's a good chance his web hosting will close his account for using illegal material. Oh, and his cherry will be taken when he's in the slammer.
            It's an omen...

                Can we have some sort of sugary reward system, for example we get a free lolly pop mailed out to us for each nulled copy reported. Maybe an assorted lolly bag for 10 valid reports.
