Thread: Need Your Advice

  1. #1
    I gave a friend of mine a key to unlock DeadAIM and she got a message from the company (JDennis?) that owns it stating that they knew she used a serial and "piracy will not be tolerated" and that "*her screen name* has been logged". The message said to get a legitamate copy.

    I know I shouldn't be worried, but I just feel guilty b/c I was the cause of all this. Is there anything to worry about?

    Not for you!

    I don't know how DEADAIM works but the only way to know is that:

    The serial number is recorded to the internet every time you install it, with a user name registered(it could be with your knowledge or without)*. If that so then is your fault cuz you ought to know that somethin' like that would happen.

    *with the use of a coukie or somethin' otherwise i can't figure out any other way..

    Anyway just in case destroy the cd and try to uninstall it from her pc..

    If i were you i would worry about my friend..

    However, its a possibility that your friend is kidding you

    If shes serious, well, do as Barbarossa said

    Use a good firewall to block outgoing communication whenever you install new software.

    that is especially important when registering software from companies like adobe or sony or macromedia

    or to be even safer, just pull ur internet connection



    also, just use trillian. works so much better than deadaim

    haha. They can't get her address from her screen name.

    I was just asking if you think anything is going to happen. They said her name had been logged but she can still get a registered copy.

    If they have her screen name, then they have her IP.

    Good. Then there's nothing to worry about.

    Well, she did the serial while she was in her dorm. The screen name was registered at her house...many years ago.

    But they are not going to pursue a lawsuit for a $5 program.
