Maybe piracy is the reason for the extreme loss of sale that Alex is reporting. I have somwhere around 6 console libraries from alex and Michael + all kinds of misc stuff from the collective devs and myself.

Personally:

1. I don't need any more.... How many consoles could you realistically pack into a studio.

2. I'm on Logic pro 64bit... Nebula won't play ball with it.

Of course "free" is gonna change things. But there are other issues here that could be addressed.

okay, I see many new "cracked" releases from all developers floating around since yesterday...

That's a shame! I always try to find those pirate versions, and was shocked to have found those yesterday. my heart began to beat faster, when I first discovered it. :shock:

So, if anyone is stumpling upon a site with content
from us and the other developers, please report it directly to me: [email protected]

Thanks for listening & supporting us!!!

How ironic.... I periodically search a few pirate sites looking for devs that i test for (I'm looking out for my associates and friends!), and found a major release offered. I will send you links Mirco. (You probably look on the same sites and know of this already, but if not, did deep on the site I am sending links for, I have seen libraries from many Nebula devs here...... ) Also, let me know if I can do anything to help squash this crap, it's infuriating.

I just emailed you a shockingly huge amount of easily found stuff, Mirco. Almost all Nebula devs are included....even Acustica, so the Nebula platform is also available. This is crazy.

Report any website to us. Link post of illegal software copy will be a crime soon in all EU. There is a new online office in Spain for those reports.

if we have to go to a copy protection model with Nebula - then I support that solution. As long as it is fairly simple - and works - its ok.

Doesnt refx Nexus use some Kind of copyprotection where u cannot use cracked libraries weithin a legit copy of the soft? Maybe u should contact other Devs about their methods? U-HE comes to mind. I remember Urs saying he is willing to Share his approach. As a U-HE Satin user i can say that his Method is anything but annoying to the user and at the Same time pretty powerfull as it seems.

ok, I've contacted many hosters and there abuse account, other will follow.

These #+*"/& also have made bad copies of libraries which doesn't exist in the way they have uploaded it! :x
So these are more or less useless and have nothing to do
with the orginal releases on our website. That's the only good point so far from our side, I don't know about the other dev's.

Sunny, a user on AudioZ, seems to be one of the biggest Nebula pirates. They all have 'Team MAGNETRiXX' at the end of the name (which might very well be him/her).

Definitely a good idea to try and strike a deal (or plead!) with AudioZ and Magesy to see if they can exclude Nebula libraries from the sites... It's having such a negative effect on a grass roots community, maybe they will have mercy.

You can PM Sunny here:
http://audioz.eu/index.php?do=pm&doacti ... user=58813

or mail here:
http://audioz.eu/index.php?do=feedback&user=58813

Just found out Sunny is known as iamcameran on Magesy and he's doing the same stuff there.
