As you all know, all S2 applications are freeware. That is, they cannot be sold for any purpose and it's stated clearly in the attached license file.

However, it's found some guys do repeatly sell them through eBay or their own websites. For eBay, I have to submit an individual email to eBay when a suspicious listing is found. That's really time-wasting.

Recently, I came across this website: www.iphonethemeforppc.com. I asked the website owner to remove S2U2, but he simply declined.

I'm totally sick of them.

So, I'll suspend the development of any S2 applications until there is any good sign of changes.

Anyway, thanks all for your support. Take care.

Got the reply from iphonethemeforppc

We do not sell S2U2! We offer it as an optional free download from our
site just as most of the other sites on the web.
When you purchase the iphone theme you will download a zip file that is
an html file and a Cab file with all the wisbar theme addons and a txt
file. This is NOT the S2U2 files and we do not sell your software. I
already said this once so get it straight!
We don’t believe in selling copyright software and we don’t endorse it!

Now if you want to know who I believe is doing it wrong look at this
site: http://www.web-resort.com/. They actually have it included in
their download package!

With that being said, We don’t have a problem re-wording our site if
that makes you feel better, but we are NOT selling your software.

But up till now, S2U2 is still posted on this website with screenshots & wordings like "Features"...

Here is the reply from another beggar at web-resort.com:
Quote:

we are not selling S2U2 as it is a free application as stated on our
website.
Please read the part of our Warranty Disclaimer relative to freeware:

"...THIS PACKAGE IS DEVELOPED MIXING TOGETHER FREE SOFTWARE. BUYING THIS
PACKAGE YOU BUY THE "KNOWLEDGE", "TIME" SPENT SEARCHING FREE SOFTWARE,
PUTTING IT TOGHETER, "TESTING" AND FINALLY "FINDING A RELIABLE SOLUTION".

It's even worser that it's selling the whole series of S2...

So, I have to keep on suspending the development. Take care.

Update: 17-Sep
I must say thanks all for your support & feedback. I'll think seriously about every suggestion you've posted here but I have not made up my mind yet. So please forgive me for the lack of update of any S2 apps in the near future.

Take care... I'll be back...

Update: 3-Oct
I've just set up a website... http://www.ac-s2.com

I'm still waiting for some legal advice... so please stay tuned...

For anyone who is doing this.. you should be ashamed. I hope if anyone finds these people in these forums to ban them and their IP.

Banning is not enough. Anybody remember how Jay and Silent Bob handled the negative movie reviews?

**Music***How many people wanna kick some @$$***Music**

I make light of the subject, but really. If you're douchebag enough to steal someone else's work and sell it as your own, you deserve nothing betther than to have the 5#17 kicked out of you. No stupid sentencing, no community service or refund money, just hefty fines and ass-whoopin's. Simple as that.
