Until I saw another post that mentioned "warez" and banning members for posting links to no-cd cracks I have never heard of it being considered illegal. In fact. I have read a number of places where it is actually legal for someone who legally owns and has the media in their posession to make use of software such as a no-cd crack or what some call a "Fixed .exe" to run their legally owned software without having to subject the media for that software to excessive use, wear and tear, scratching and other damage from normal use.

In fact. Some states, the one I live in being one, there are laws that state activities like this are legal as long as you maintain both posession and ownership of the media for the software you are using the crack or fixed execute file to run. It goes on to say that if you sell or give away the media for the software you must immediately remove the remaining software from your computer and distroy any copies of the software and the cracked execute file or the crack used to modify your original execute file.

So.. What exactly is illegal about using a cracked or fixed execute file? Or a program to crack one that you own and have the media for in your posession? I'd like to know. Thanks!

This is not the site or the place for this type of question. We make trainers, we're not lawyers.
