What does everyone else think about a new host using stolen software?

Do you think this is generally accepted in the webhosting industry, or any industry for that matter?

Is it the hosts or the web designers?

Interesting, we had some problems with vistapages just recently.

It looks like they stole our new account welcome e-mail format and forgot to remove a few of our e-mail address links so we had their clients contacting us requesting help/refunds all of the time.

I guess this doesn't surprise me either.

Their design looks similar to yours too

Even if they use the "we hired a webmaster" excuse I still wouldn't buy into it. Companies still have an obligation to verify they're using legal software, regardless of who they hired to set it up. In this case a simple printed invoice from the original software maker would be sufficient.

MIND Justin how'd you figure this out exactly?

WN-Ali no kidding, wow. But I guess it looks more "inspired by" since the HTML and CSS style sheets are quite different.

Well, I spoke with Vista first and their manager is awaiting an e-mail from me. So I will see type of bull I get first.
Make sure you take screenshots of that page.

We were unaware of this pirated software installation on our servers. We pay for our licenses with any software that we use, cPanel, SiteStudio, etc. Our system admins are removing this from our servers and also will be re-activating with PHPLive. Should be removed by the time I am finished writing this.

VP-Kaumil,

Are you going to be paying them for all of the six months that you've stolen from them?

That would be the honest thing to do...
