Piracy and Copyright Infringement
« Reply #1 on: October 10, 2011, 02:16:20 AM »
This is not a 'warez' forum and does not contain pirated software or illegal video/audio downloads. You will find that all software available for download here is either 'Trialware', 'Freeware' or in the public domain. The purpose of this forum is to provide support for various software to make back ups of your purchased DVDs and Blu-ray's. Discussion of other use of the software that infringes on the rights of the copyright holder will not be permitted such as copying any content that the user does not personally own.
 
NO requests for downloads of anything that is not freeware, shareware, trial versions or copyright-free material (hence, no ISOs, Warez or MP3s that are protected by copyright). Any reference to such activities will also lead to deletion of the topic and a 2 week ban from posting on the forum, second time will be a permanent ban
  • No requesting or posting of serial numbers, direct links to cracks or any other information that violates copyright laws.
  • Copying rented DVDs/Blu-rays is illegal - such discussions are not allowed!
  • If you notice a user breaking the rules, use the 'Report to Moderator' text for the rule breaking post
  • The user of the software bears sole responsibility for its use in compliance with their local laws as copyright laws vary from country to country.
