How is this not an illegal hack? Can I ask the admins to take a look at this. I think it's wrong.

No worries, belacan. If it's a hack, which it is, then delete the whole topic, me thinks.

@belacan

I am not saying that it is "hack". I was asking question in terms of how would anyone be able to tell if it was hack. I get these notification all the time too. So I just wondered so I would know how to recognize a hack when I saw it.

Like you, I am not an expert either.

In a nut shell:

the 2010 version is not free. Using the license from a previous version to BYPASS the trial period is hacking. I haven't checked but probably the EULA forbids this.

I wouldn't be surprised if this doesn't end well for Techno360. Unless they have the approval of the Developer… Confused  Then why not make the 2010 version free?

It's a hack.

@ belacan: The giveway was the 2009 version, which is not update-able to the 2010 version. This is a hack. And I doubt very much if the developers would appreciate it.

I think I understand now.

I read Gioneo msg and looked at the website

It appears that they are telling you to use a serial #/license # from the 2009 giveaway to get the 2010.

Gioneo is saying that this is just wrong and not good for the site that is promoting it.

@ Ebony: Techno360 should know better than to publish this. And we should get this posting off dotTech immediately.

I agree P_R, was just wondering if maybe Tech360 could possibly made an error and really does have a legit offer of some sort. Surely, as you say, should know better and would not try to pull a fast one. You think?

P_R I was not saying this offer was legit, it is obvisious that it isn't,  I was saying maybe there was an error in this posting and his intentions was to post something else that would have been a legit offer. Was just trying to give the benefit of doubt.

I just want to point out Ashraf himself has posted things that use old version licenses on newest versions of software.

Although I'm not saying this is legal or legit or anything.

Oh, the site that was :(

" Now being the self-righteous prick that I am, I emailed the developer
letting him/her know about this because I feel that the original intent
of the freebie did not include a free upgrade to the latest version
(maybe it did, I don't know). "

I didn't see that mention on Techno's article.

Please let us know the out come.

I tried it just as instructed and got  message stating "invalid license".

 

However he it stated at the end of the promo "

[Credits and Thanks to our Friend perti for the Idea]
Maybe someone pass it on to him.

I know this isn't the same thing, but has nayone noticed that the icon in the tab bar is in fact the Icon belonging to Stardock Objectdock?Surprised

 

I am right in seeing this as a "sort of" wrong doing? No one ios supposed to use another company's logo without their consent, and i doubt they have consent.

Difficult, to be sure…..but it shall be done!!

Removed this. This is not legit at all; I have talked to the developer myself about this issue and they have assured me this is unintended and will be fixed soon. Thanks P_R for reporting… I haven't been active on dotTech lately so I have been slacking on moderations.

@Locutus: The difference is I took the initiative to contact the developer to report the bug and get it fixed. I only posted about their response equated to, more or less, a "we don't care".
