Maybe you could open a thread about cracked stuffs, but here, it's honnestly a bit irrelevant, don't you think ?
Would you be happy that the day you invest finances and efforts in producing a product and ensure the support and improvement of it someone comes and advertise how interresting it was to show off how to rip you off all your work ? I don't think so.
I know open source people like to have everything free based on the fact that all is shared on the internet, but they have abad tendancy to forget about one important thing, this is that some people work on some products and manage to put some resources available, shall they be financial or human, to provide finished product with easy to use interfaces and firmware updates and stable code that allows "normal" users to focus on using their product rather than beta test it on a continous way..
I thank you for your understanding,
