The 50% refund rate isn't just me. Its across the board, I've done my homework on this. This is why I wasn't initially overly upset by it. Those users weren't going to purchase an app no matter what. It's well known that a good majority of individuals like to root solely for this purpose. What got me fired up is the dedicated piracy and malicious intent to rip off the app and distribute it free. It's one thing if someone does it privately (even though its still clearly wrong), but when individuals start publicly pushing others who may not have otherwise pirated it to do so also, that's stepping way over the line.
It's difficult to stop piracy but for those that take someone's app and change the package name and try to distribute it I believe you can write some form of drm into it to make apktool malfunction

I would suggest a few ways of keeping people from pirating, but can only explain them logic-wise.

Well the topic has to relate to anthropological demography. It has to relate to fertility or morality rates of populations, past or present. Too bad I couldn't write about the android root user demographic and rate of OS upgrade leak downloads compared to stock users.

Actually I banged my girlfriend because I told her I was with Team BAMF and was rooting Android phones, it turned her on. Let me know if you would like an interview

After that I decided I liked her so we are still together.

Don't know how many times I did that back in college. Like the time I hit print for the paper right as my roommate's alarm was going off.

ok, but that still doesn't help the avg user figure out if your app is even functional on their phone.
What kernels work for the rezound? I'm guessing only sebastians OC kernel.
