    I'm not asking for a tutorial or anyone to PM info on this.

    I am curious because I am about to release an app to the market and wondering if we should take additional precautions to try to protect ourself from pirating.

    If there are additional things we could do feel free to make suggestions. dancedroid

    Getting apps free has nothing to do with a rooted device. It's due to the developer not taking the correct steps to stop it.

    Could you explain more?

    From my research I've only found discussion from around feb 2009 and I'm not sure if there have been improvements to the market.

    I had a co-worker who had the app to get the free paid apps and it doesn't work anymore.... I don't if they targeted the guy who put the app out (JesusXXX or something like that), or the market security getting better... His Hero was not rooted btw....

    The only app that is un-piratable (to the best of my knowledge) is Titanium Backup Pro. The creator makes an individual license for each person who sends him money (via PayPal, not even on the market). He can disable the license if multiple people register with the same license.

    It seems like a lot of work on his part, but it's the only surefire way I've seen.

    With a rooted device, you can "buy" any app, rip it, then get a refund and just re-install the app for no charge. There are also a number of sites that provide ripped pay apps.

    To be fair though, good apps are rewarded, despite the threat of piracy. I'd focus on the quality of the app first. There will always be ways to bypass security precautions, so focus on the product and you'll see the community is actually very generous.

    Make a good app, take comments seriously, good and bad, make adjustments, and you will be rewarded.

    you don't even need an app to do it. Theres a warez site you can go to that has just about every paid app and game made for the android so far.

    All you need is the .apk.

    My guess is go the route of an individual lisence that registers with your server.

    Closing this thread. I think it's very close to somebody probably not knowing any better and posting a warez link. Posting warez is not allowed in Droid Forums.
