Thread: What's your opinion about cr@ck selling reselling or making?

  1. What's your opinion about cr@ck selling reselling or making?

    Well, we need engineering software for different purposes;
    1- learning ( to develop your professional skills) or getting A M.Sc/Ph.D
    2- work (your company don't want to pay for this software)
    3- teaching; non-commercial at schools or commercial courses
    4- Exploring the capabilities of this software, what's new,....etc
    5- making money by selling software.

    If you have the knowledge the cr@ck a software (which was built by of others), will you share it for free or for money?
    Also if you have bought a cr@ck, will you give it for free/ resell it or in an exchange only?
    Do you think that there should me some rules in grating/exchanging software to prevent any abuse?

    I'd like to know the opinion of my friends here.

    Thank you

    Bottom line: if you are going to make money with simulation software, DO NOT use cr@ck or pir@te. To learn the capabilities, to study, I think it is ok using cr@ck. If I have the knowledge to cr@ck, for sure I would share it with others.

    Ultimately as an engineer you implicitly agree to follow engineering ethics. As *****ing/pirating software is illegal, you are breaching the ethical code. I understand that software is expensive, but for learning purposes, most companies give free trials (typically 30 days). If you need the software for work purposes, then your employer should be willing to pay for it.

    As an aside, most modern software (I know that HYSYS, UniSim and AutoCAD do) put stamps on output documents stating whether the software is genuine or not.

      IMHO, I agreed with gtaa. As an engineer, we have to have follow the ethic guidelines.
      The option 2 and 3 didn't make sense to me.
      2- work (your company don't want to pay for this software):
      IF your company didn't pay for the software, you don't have to use it. I will create an excel based model or I will use the analytical approach rather than using the ***** version of the software. (Don't take a risk of liability for using ***** version)
      3- teaching; non-commercial at schools or commercial courses
      The same logic applies. Schools will be able to acquire the academic licenses from Schlumberger, Roxar, Baker Hughes, etc. So there is no reasons to use the ***** version of the software. If your professor agreed to use the ***** version, I think I will stop studying there.

      I think simply,
      i have one, you have one, if can share we have two and you too.
      Now comeback your topic, if the reverse engineering want to sell them, we should accept.
      However, i hope: if the latest version is 201x, they can share the 201(x-1) version
      ex: Petrel 2016 is latest, plz share 2015...
