    Oh well ... feel free to tar and feather me for this ... but I believe the very first time I've been testing vBulletin 10 years ago or something it wasn't an all that legal copy either.

    That said once I noticed what a great script vBulletin actually was and the first site went public I immediately bought a legal license (and still own 5 licenses).

    I realize that this might be a very controversial topic. I'm not pro warez. But maybe sometimes it can have it's positive sides.

    It's definitely pointless to get angry about it as you cannot stop it anyway. At least without crypting your code which would be a big show stopper for many legitimate customers like me.

    I will just report it to piracy@xenforo.com and let them deal with it.

    People that do this are just sad, I rather pay for it and enjoy the benefits than be a loser and pirate it.

    Is it you who is behind that email account?
    I believe you did it too with vB for a while?

    Yeah, here's a list:
    - xenfans.com
    - vbulletin.com
    - wetalknation.net

    And a few more thousands;)

    I am not on vBulletin.com anymore. I only bothered to inform my friends there about the coming IB acquisition as it might affect the product (or not).

    I've moved away from there earlier this year as much as possible.

    It's unfortunately going to happen, and as long as the developers actively work to keep the pirating to a minimum they should be fine. People are always going to find ways to steal what isn't theirs to steal.

    How can piracy be prevented? Its a huge problem for both software houses, as for addon developers. Likely the same communities that distribute nulled vbulletin software and addons will jump on XF.

    Give the software away for free. But then again I see pirated versions of phpbb still floating around. Nothing will ever stop them, you just need to make sure you're doing your best to enforce your copyright.

    Piracy != theft. Piracy = copy.

    It is both. They are using the software without permission and stealing possible sales.
