There's this program from a few years ago that isn't being sold anymore, and there's a simple way to extend the free trial forever by changing the expiration date in a text file.

I was wondering if it would be problematic to write and publish a guide on my website detailing how to use this exploit, since I am not distributing anything.

  • Is the program in question abandonware, i.e. the company behind it no longer exists, or is it simply not suported? – Studoku Nov 14 '20 at 0:37
  • My location is Germany. And it's not abandoned, the company has moved on to a subscription based, in-browser model. – schinken82 Nov 14 '20 at 0:44
  • If the software isn't abandoned, then (a) you are trying to deliberately destroying someone's livelihood, and (b) nobody will lose a single tear if this costs you a lot of money. Germany has more laws than just copyright law. – gnasher729 Nov 15 '20 at 16:33
