    I love xenforo and that's why I purchased it today, however to make sure it doesn't end up nulled or for future versions. Have the user enter a confirmation number that he/she will receive via email.

    I wouldn't rely on a automatic number as a keygen could be written, I would make it manual and only allow the customer to use it once so he/she can't use it again, again to stop XF from going nulled.

    Don't let your baby be nulled, protect it from pirates like communites from warez-bb, piratebay, to just name a few.

    XenForo is visible source software. Any anti-piracy measures we introduce could be trivially defeated by those who want to do so.

    Ok, but does XF like track what sites are using and can tell if it's pirated or an actual purchased copy?

    XF cannot track a pirated copy as it was explained above by Kier.
