We found a "customer" who has been stealing our SpamSentinel software for about a year now. Frankly, we are flattered. He could have stolen anyone's software, but he chose ours! We feel honored, to say the least!
I guess we are happy that he likes our software. What if he said "It is not even worth nothing?". But that can't be true. Our software has a value to him, as he had to spend time to steal it, and time equals money.
It takes a lot of time to figure out how to work around a locking system, but it was obviously worth it to him to get the best in spam protection. It gives new meaning to the term "brand loyalty". I mean, we could use him as a testimonial "we love this anti-spam software for Lotus Domino so much that we steal it!"
Here is their server check-in document. Notice the monthly reinstalls, 10 so far:
To quote Bill Gates who knows a bit about this subject:
Even though "the customer is always right", we needed to do something, so we added this to the subject of each spam message: "SpamSentinel Trial License Expired - please email email@example.com to obtain license".
Let's see if that gets him to contact us. But we really are flattered!
Steal our software
