Malwarebytes offers amnesty to pirated keys

Anti-malware software maker Malwarebytes has decided to offer pirates amnesty by offering a free 12 month upgrade to a genuine copy. A couple of days ago the firm started scanning for pirated and counterfeit keys as part of an upgrade to its licensing system.

Copies that are not deemed to be genuine will be offered the option to take part in the amnesty program and going forward, Malwarebytes will adopt a more advanced license key algorithm that will make it harder to pirate the software once the one year subscription expires.
Malwarebytes’ Bruce Harrison previously told TorrentFreak that they don’t plan to crack down too hard on pirates.

“Piracy is not really a huge problem for us in my opinion. There are a lot of people who simply won’t pay for our software and being aggressive against them won’t change that,” Harrison said.

Offering amnesty to pirates is in line with this stance. It certainly isn’t an aggressive move and could even trigger some to pay up when the free offer runs out.
