Few bucks, when (yip he will one day) he gets caught it is payday for scirra (adobe, other software he is using), What's the going rate for pirated software? $200,000 or is it more?
And if not able to pay its straight to jail and usually both.
Sure there is paperwork, but piracy kills business. Drains profits and derails good products like C2.


Edit: Don't kid yourself because he cheated the system once, twice, hundred times. It will catch up, and when it does - Lots of tears.
If he makes money and put himself on radar, he is going to get caught.
$2000 is small change, but also not a living, so he will always try to make more, and one day - Bullseye :twisted:



But Now He Bought His Own Business License And Will Develop More Using It And Will Not Get Caught! Right?

I have just one tiny question for you: What if you don't suceed enough to pay the license? you still used it after all, even if you didn't suceed.

Also piracy is bad, sure, he paid it after, but scirra didn't get paid in between the usage and the profit, and that is bad.

anyway, scirra has chosen their conditions, accept it or don't use it, it's as simple as that.



Yeah! VALID POINT! But When You Develop For Android, Even If A Rubbish App, You Get Enough Money To Buy A Personal License Because Android Is All Over The World. That Is Why App Development Is The Highest Paying Industry. That Is Why People Want To Develop For Android! It's Like 99.99% Return Investment!

Closing this thread. We have a zero tolerance approach to piracy and actively pursue those using licenses illegally through measures we'd prefer not to disclose.
