I *think* this might be an illegal download site

Do a search for horse. I saw the site in a Renderosity post about illegal content. I don't see any downloads but I think you need to be logged in. I don't want to register to find out.

Edited to remove link.

@CWRW they have all your products there , mostly uploaded after April 28 2021 , seems like a leak from Rendo shoppers, yes the users download it for free , they even complain not last updates included .
@Janet it is not smart to post link to the website, now everyone go there to get their files for free , PM message would better, pls remove the URL, not need more advertising .

I just removed the link from her post.
Thanks Miss B , the problem is that one person buy things, share with friend and friends share with others for free since they pay nothing for it, I wonder how they would feel If I go to their front door , take their car and share it with someone that needs it . Websites like that hosting criminal activity and should be shut down. I shut down a lot of websites links from Google search via Google, but dealing with the websites need higher power and judge order. They are mostly scams and advertising making money websites not even located in the USA attracts users with stolen goodies just so they click on the adds. Criminals nothing more nothing less.

Not a problem Janet, it was easy to fix.
I was so shocked after seeing everything there I didn't even stop to think about posting a link and why I shouldn't. :rolleyes:

I showed Faery Light her product there and she said it links to her Renderosity store so that's something.

It is terrible that this happens! :somad:
I agree Flint, but this isn't something new. I've seen this happen decades ago when I was only working in 2D graphics, including software, not just things you buy to use in the software.

Unfortunately, no one who uses a site like that regularly is going to go to her Renderosity Store to buy it. That's a shame.

I did not register but I believe once you register you have access , other way people would not thanks for the files or ask for updates or even complain about old version.
They using the link to load all files like promos and some info .
There was once a vendor on Second life that selling all my characters and textures , You believe the company did something ? they ask me to go to the court and prove it was mine , Vendor in Sweden , I was at this time in Amsterdam and store in USA how you handle that? . They made money on a stolen products without care.

In his interview in the recent Poser Creator Series, Ken 1171 was saying that Renderosity has some how protected the python scripts in Poser 12 so it would be good if they could extend that. It is also one of the few benefits of the 'phone home feature' in that is should limit most illegal users to pre Poser 11/12 software. As all the new stuff is for Poser 12 that should at least limit the pirating of the latest content.

I have lost one or two so say friends over the years who have become upset when I would not give them a copy of a program I had purchased but it is a policy I have stuck to for thirty plus years. Family members know of my dislike of piracy and my policy so they never ask for copies.

Most software today have a 'phone home' feature. It still gets cracked. It doesn't work. It only inconveniences legal users. Personally, I will not buy any software with this feature, which is why I mostly only use OS software.

They pay people to upload every new product , how newer it is how better .. it is. particularly a website hosting all products of HW for free, including all my products I ever made as well , Rendo and Daz
And nobody did anything for 4 years about that ? they literally write instructions how to commit a crime and get pay for it , hosting the files on another server for hosting like Dropbox , but different name .. well going to write them an official letter .

I do understand that the phone home can be hacked, what ever defence that can be built can also be defeated. I have never liked the phone home feature, and as particularly upset the sneaky way Smith Micro introduced it, but then I do not like piracy as the paying customer still pays as prices either need to increase so the vendor can still make a profit despite the privacy or the vendor gives up and stops writing content.

At least with the Poser 12 Renderosity have a work around for those whose PC is not connected to the Internet full time.

Careful with that. I showed someone on there their product and they said they tried earlier to get it off there but got bombarded with trojans and viruses. Make sure your antivirus is up to date if you do.

Yes, get the Internet Police after them. You shouldn't be doing it yourself.
of course not .. one best thing to do is not share the links in public , how less people know about it how better.
I will let the professionals to deal with stuff like that .
