How does vBulletin check license?

P: n/a
PHP is source code based. How could vBulletin sell a key for 1 year or for
multiple years. How can vBB check if the same key is used on different
servers/machines?

I guess there is some kind of call to headquater thing to report abuse. Am I
right?

I am looking at vBB 3.0.3 and 3.0 Gold. Can anyone tell me what 3.0 gold is?
Which is better? 3.03 or 3.0 gold?

They don't need to, sooner or later you are going to need their help, either
an update or technical support. No licence no help and more than likely
you've have a h4><0r3d site before you get a ripped off copy of a critical
update.

Trust me, running ripped off software on the Internet is not a viable
option.

3.0.3 is better, 3.0 is a beta test version with enough security holes to
drive a double decker bus through.
