    well, i did fill out the piracy complaint forum, and their forum is still online, i checked the members list, and i didn't see the usual "pirate killer" account that the vB anti-piracy team usually registers, do you have any idea as to when charges will be filed against this forum?


    Thank you for your time.


    love,
    mikey

      All piracy reports are followed up on unsually within one week. After that it can sometimes take weeks to get a site shut down depending on how much cooperation the host provides. Unfortunately some hosts provide no cooperation at all.

        do you initially contact the host, or the site owner?

          Some people think they can get away with a lot if they threaten legal action. The guy who wrote that rubbish though sounds about 12 years old. 'Don't even think about it'.

            We do not give out specific information on what we do with pirated sites. No sense tipping them off.

                So all the people that are using the pirated vBulletin Software, will they have legal actions be taken on them aswell?

                    You seem awfully curious to know exactly what we do.

                    Let me just say that we do everything allowed by law to protect our intellectual property. We don't give out specific information because that would just be helping the pirates.
