    Your license would be in breach of the license agreement and would be in jeopardy of being revoked; as well as your access to these forums being revoked.

    Branding Removal costs $250 and can be purchased as an add-on to your license.

    but many guys are doing that..he showed me few forums that he had worked for...and they are running well.
    240$ is too expensive for asian clients

    Then he's scamming people, do you honestly think it makes since for some random guy that's offering third party services to negotiate branding removal FOR XenForo?

    In just a few seconds you went from asking what the punishment will be (implying you know it's wrong) to trying to justify it by saying since a lot of people illegally remove the branding, it should be ok?

    Listen, it's simple, and this applies to all software: if you want to remove the branding, pay the fee. If you don't have the money to remove it, then leave the credit of the original authors as it stands.
