What are "warez", "cracks" and "keygens"? Do you allow those?

The term "warez" refers to an illegally obtained copy of a software program (such as Photoshop, Flash, or 3D Studio Max for example). A "keygen" refers to methods of falsifying a product license or registration number or otherwise bypassing the requirement for special activation codes or keys. A "crack" refers to a modification to a program to remove certain features, typically one or more things which function as copyright protection.

We at DeviantArt do not tolerate the promotion or distribution of warez on our website. Likewise we do not allow you to provide serial numbers, product registration codes, keygens, or any other method of obtaining or enabling an illegally copied piece of software.
