I thought the UAD plugins were virtually un-hackable because they were completely dependent on a physical card to be used. Does anyone know anything about this? How did people get around this???
Yesterday Gannon Kashiwa addressed issues they’ve been having with pirated plugins. I don’t understand how there even CAN be an issue.
Gannon’s reason for addressing this appears to be that some of the precautions the company was taking were mis-interpreted as attempts to strong-arm UAD users into buying new hardware by making it incredibly difficult to buy used hardware. He conceded that there are attempts being made to re-visit the policy so that it the anti-piracy changes don’t hurt the legit users, who again, I thought was everyone.
Does anyone know anything about this? I’m not going to call their own tech support and go ‘hey man…is it true your plugins have been getting pirated?’
