The above points show that the only party seriously affected by the illegal use of pirated software will most likely be you. You’ll strip yourself of support, help, and product updates, get unwanted attention from the law and may risk a major lawsuit you don’t have a chance to win in the event your project turns out to be a huge success. In the process, you will waste more money and time on trying to do everything yourself. Is all of that really worth it?
Every so often we get an email from someone saying they want a free copy of our software, since they can easily obtain a free copy from the internet with a little searching. However the truth is that “nulled” software is not free. Myth #1 – Using nulled software won’t get me into trouble so it’s worth the risk. Not true! phpPennyAuction actively pursue copyright offenders through the courts – you can find out more about our latest judgement here. Myth #2 – A nulled copy of phpPennyAuction is the same as the retail version. False – you will only find older versions of our software (some going back to 2008!) that are more commonly shared. Buying the latest version entitles you to the latest security updates and all future upgrades are FREE. Older versions have vulnerabilities, fewer auction formats, dated templates and more – adding new features will cost you MUCH more in development costs than it costs to buy one of our scripts, guaranteed. Myth #3 – I can’t afford to buy the software. Again this is false, we offer a monthly payment plan making our great software affordable to anyone. Myth #4 – All software companies make massive profits, you won’t miss my custom. If only this was true! We are a small business and likewise appreciate every single one of our customers. That’s why we provide 100% free updates for life, we don’t believe in “punishing” those who have already paid for our software. Don’t forget that less income for us in turn equates to a lower spend on software engineers, support and marketing specialists, which means more potential competition on the market for you and your work.
