I'm curious to know exactly what Spacial are doing to combat what i can only see as a Flood on Twitter of people wanting and trading in Cracked copies of the software SAM broadcaster.

 

You would have thought they would be rushing to stem the Flow of such things but it looks like it's a really big problem.

 

Would love to know as i personally think it's out of hand. Don't believe me ? Just search Twitter for Sam Broadcaster. 100's of tweets asking for keys and cracked versions.

Just like any popular software, there will always be cracked copies going around and people will be looking for them.

So they aren't that bothered about doing anything about it then ..... their loss i guess. Mind when i get Tweets from people saying they've been ripped off by Spacial it doesn't surprise me that there are so many cracked versions out there.

 

Guess the silence from Spacial really speaks a thousand words.

You are so uninformed. Doubtful they would spend much time on old versions however their new version certainly has updates to it to and "answers" your question.

And what is your complaint again? As already noted, any popular software title is going to at least have an attempt at being cracked and are usually successful. With that you are ALWAYS going to get people contacting official support for cracked copies for whatever reason.

 

Given they have long been in the works with SAM 2013, it justifies why they've never bother curtailing cracked copies and wasting their time. If they start getting the same effect with 2013, I am sure they will start adding an effort.

 

It should be noted though that existing cracks for SAM 3/4 are sh*tty at best. The last solidly 'working' crack was for like 3.2.3 or something of that vintage. Any recent ones do not work 100% and tend to randomly crash or stop running altogether. Any station worth their salt wouldn't deal with this. I'm betting 99.99% of those who attempt using cracked versions wouldn't pay anyways and are just screwing around with the software.

In the first post i asked

If you do a quick Google for SAM Broadcaster there are now DMCA complaints filed by Spacial this month http://www.chillingeffects.org/notice.cgi?sID=908349

 

Nice to see they are finally doing something about the cracked copies out there. Why anyone wants to run a cracked copy of SAM is beyond me... When there is RadioDJ For free.
