Hi there,

Did you know some cases of pirate activity in trading scriptmakers' industry?

If you mean people stealing posted code and reselling it as their own, yes, it happens all the time. If you mean people hacking your computer or something and stealing the code, I haven't heard of that, yet.

Yes, I mean that. And what value of this stealing, you think? Maybe there are some famous stories about developer's fail because of this stealing?

I never heard a story like that. It seems highly unlikely unless you're working on the code or talking to other people in the industry about the code who are untrustworthy. Hackers probably wouldn't have any interest in reselling code because it takes time and can be problematic. Think about it, if a hacker was interested in trading you'd think they'd be able to make money on their own with out other's skills.

I have seen hacked versions of popular software, but I don't believe it's widespread and I have never heard of a developer fail from it. Like Itchy said, most people aren't going to go through the effort. Trading platforms excluded, the reality is that the "professional" stuff is no better than the independent stuff you can obtain freely on the internet, i.e. there is no magical indicator or system.

Of course, I mean developers or software companies who made that code. And they're public what means there're many ways to talk with someone untrustworthy.

Good crackers will never do this. But there're many people who wants easy money. And there's a market of trading software. These people can just copy something and sell it as their own.

There's a good marketing from professional stuff developers? How they earn money on products which has no benefits?
