Hi Truckeic,

Need a bit more information, what ebay seller ?

If you are referring to the sale of a Mach3 license on ebay then it will almost certainly be a scam or a pirate license. There is however a couple of Artsoft authorised resellers advertising on ebay so if you let me know the name of the seller I can confirm if they are genuine.

Hope this helps.

In an earlier post I mentioned how FasterCNC started trading as DDream
( https://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=24331.msg236818#msg236818 )
this pic. (showing their own, in house, Pirate license usage) was taken from their current DDream EC300 and EC500 product manuals.

Just a little off thread comment and that refers to users of pirated licenses.
We have been rather discrete about those users and address accordingly.
            BUT
If a user has the gall to use this forum knowingly using a pirated license they won't be here for long.

RICH

Why? 1st you're selling a 2004 software for almost 200 dollars, to call it stupidly expensive would be an understatement, and there are people buying CNC's from websites like AliExpress that include the Mach3 software, obviously a pirated one.

There are countless people that i know that use pirated software not because they take pleasure in abusing the developer but simply because they cant afford it.

And if anybody would ask me if the should pay ~200 USD for a ancient piece of software id advise pirating it, if however that person uses the software to make money than i agree they should pay for it.

There are countless people that simply cant afford the software or are just interested in learning.

And i sincerely think they hurt nobody, if anything they might one day advertise the software to somebody that would be ready to buy it.

And again, for the 3rd and sure not the last time, charging almost $200 for a 2004 software, one wont be far from truth if he called you crooks.

Tell that to the judge.
If they can afford to buy the HW, then they can afford to buy the SW. All other pleadings are just selfish BS.

Well said Roger.

Rich was not wrong when he said "If a user has the gall to use this forum knowingly using a pirated license they won't be here for long".

Hi,

Quote
charging almost $200 for a 2004 software,

If you buy Mach3 then yes, all development stopped on Mach3 six years ago, and no-one has try to pretend otherwise.
You could buy Mach4, and that is $200, and it is being actively developed and supported. You choose Mach3.....why??

' You choose Mach3.....why??'
Because I can get a pirate copy for free from China?

I use Mach3 (fully licenced) because I bought it before Mach4 went into development, and it still works for me.
