>Tfw the letter arrived.I dun goofed boys, this will be my end.
>3DCG relatedenjoy your ban
did you pirate nuke or something
>>586537>yfw you realize "Nuke" refers to the terms of service
>>586540>>586542This is a meme btw. The Foundry shills trying to get someone to buy their overpriced products
>>586551I believe he really did get a letter from the Foundry and now he owes millions
>>586551Really? Being huge dicks to people that are ostensibly independent artists just doing hobbies and not an actual business seems within the realm of possibility for some companies.But I don't actually know a damn thing about it other than it being posted here like they'll come to your house and fuck your eye socket.
>>586539>Mods on this irrelevant board
>>586556Say you are joking, I guess you are but this still sounds scary as fuck.
>>586551Just shut up, you have no idead of what you're talking about. The Foundry are known for sending threatening letters to whoever pirate their products. Just make a simple google search and look through the long ass threads where many people indeed confirm these letters and huge fines are true.Don't try to feel better about having their cracked products on your computer, they'll get you sooner or later.
>>586617And how are they suppose to do that with no proof, no IP or Mac adress, Mr. Foundry shill?
>>586561>Why should I pay for that car, it's overpriced aaand I am just a hobby driver.
>>586619They know everything. People who get into trouble with them don't even understand how they were able to track them in the first place. They put a lot of ressources into protecting their softwares from pirates, especially Nuke. I'm even sure their software contains some kind of software that calls home.Go and read the long ass threads on pretty much all of the major 3d softwares around the web. It is confirmed to be true. You can deny it all you like, but don't come crying the day The Foundry sends you a nice letter with a huge fine + huge investigation fine.
>>586634their software contains some kind of spyware*
>>586634I'm almost hoping it's not real just because them spending 1/10th the money to launch an ongoing psychological campaign to scare people out of pirating their software is so much cooler.
>>586617>The Foundry are known for sending threatening letters to whoever pirate their productsif you've made no money, you've committed no crime.that is the actual law around pirating software.hence why nobody gets arrested for pirating games.

>>586634>They know everything.Yep, sure.They know the IP of an Offline workstation, which never goes online.Their magical fairy dust spyware is able to call home via an network of invisible spores. >>586635which commercial software doesn't?>>586643What do you think this is?>>586700>if you've made no money, you've committed no crime. That is the actual law around pirating software.No it is not you retard.
>>586705It is a law in my country.
>>586706Where you livin dog? That law doesn't sound too bad.
>>586710My parents' basement
>>586710Eastern yuropoor, where even people who lead the country admit they pirate their shit.
>>586700Yes you've commited a crime you loser, if the software doesn't have a free/edu version then you're not allowed to use it, even for non-profit usage.I don't care if you pirate your softwares, I just want you to understand that doing so could get you into trouble sooner or later. Be careful faggot.
I have a pirated copy of Modo 10 on my win10, internet connected machine. Should I not install it and in fact, delete it?
>>586763Just delete it, it's overrated as fuck anyway. Just pirate 3ds max or Maya, they don't go after individuals. The Foundry do that because they don't have much money,they charge huge fines + investigation fees (kek) to make a quick buck.
>>586765how will i follow tor fricks workflow then
>>586537Please paste here the contents of letter, it's probably scam.
>>586768Just buy modo indie, it's $15 CAN per month (or $35 for 3 months), it has everything except scripting and it limits the poly export to 100K (which shouldn't be a problem if you bake your normals). It's worth it for it's price, surely you can afford this.
>>586788without scripting modo is useless. With scripting, modo is beyond top tier
>>586763Put it on an offline workstation together with Nuke, Mari and Katana and you'll be safe.
>>586704Did you even read the article you linked? Dude was SELLING bootlegs.
I bought MODO back when it was owned by Luxology and kept it updated to 4.0. Has it improved at all?
>>586561>he thinks making a bunch of new cars is a good comparison to a single application
>>586994meant to reply to>>586626
>>586994ngl i'd download them both just the same
