HAHAHAHAHAHA omg you are the dumb one here you obviously don't know how it works, WHEN YOU REMOVE THE CD-KEY FILES VB REFUSES TO WORK Icheb i laugh at your stupidity and thinking you know everything hahaha
    Vbulletin is visible source. Someone can open it and remove the key, they can also change the code so it will work with no key. Then these vbulletins will be released just like the ones that have the call home feature removed can be found on the internet. Adding the key will do absolutely no good.

    Who says vB is only beingsold a few times per month?

    And concerning removing your cd key protection: You can just remove the check for the key, so you don't have to supply a key anymore.

    A few times a month? Try dozens of times per day on a slow day.

    I also believe that you have been warned previously about your behavior. This is your last warning, start acting politely today or be gone.

    That cd key can still be removed. Visible source, remember?
    And encryption is crap, how are we supposed to modify (hack) the files? Please, read some books and tutorials and come back.

    Scott:
    if we had a license key what is to stop someone from just opening the code and removing it? The visible source of it allows it and if we try to hide the db schema or the likes this can be easily undone by just doing a database dump from a fresh copy.
    no i mean a cd key to open/install the software and all files should be encrypted of course. Adding security to places where it's not needed is useles of course, adding a system like what described could be the solution to many piracy problems. It's always good to new things that haven't been tried before.

    If you used that, wouldn't that kind of make it a little hard to add hacks and everything?
