Hello /g/entlemen. Idiot here.
Lets say i used downthemall addon for firefox on a "buy pro version or try a free version" website page selling a $10 software. The addon detected the pro version in things it can download off that page.
Lets say i downloaded it.
Do these websites with such poor security go through the trouble of detecting that i did so and backtrace my IP from china to backwaters of yurop and call cyber police on me to bust the door down a year later, or is that unlikely?
If they can or could take action, would it involve going through legal means of contacting the local authorities, making a case, so that the ISP would reveal my exact address?
Please anon. My main concern is do they check downloads per earnings and detect a missing copy, or do these companies just let the money flow into their bank accounts without a concern.
I mean their 'pro' version hosting means are from the year 2001 or something.

No as i said, the price is like $10 of paypal rupees. Thats not to say i havent got tons of pirated software already. But pirating laws are pretty lax here. The concern is not going through torrent downloads but downloading straight from the source. If security is so poor, could it be they wont see it on their radar at all.
Yeah, now that you mention it, ive done something like this already, except not on software which i guess seems more intimidating than straight up creative content like tutorials or music.
