Keygen and legal questions and understanding and educational awareness

Cheers,

(sorry fir bad english)

I am really curious how Keygen are created or made for hacking programs or all the illegal hacks are made. Where are they mostly made. In Europe or overseas. What age groups who makes them (15-35).

I reading wikipedia and they mentioned Disassembler. What are some common Disassembler that they use? Are they illegal software? Is reverse engineering illegal if you own that software?

What are some other links about kegen? Like History of them and sample of code or other information about them.

Is it possible to see the script of software? Not the code (C++ and other codes). How do they hide scripts?

Does software companies have there own algebraic formula or equations to activate serials or codes?

Are most software companies going to register there software online. Like must confirm their serial number every time the software connects to the server. In the future do most users have to have internet connection to own software?

I have been reading about a few higher game engines that does that.

Another question. If you have illegal software such as Adobe Photoshop and produce art work and sell it or have company that has illegal software. Can a software company see you have illegal software? Besides bringing you into court.  How do they do that?

We all know software companies are aware about this and how are they fighting against it.

Have there been cases where software companies who has sued a single user who have downloaded an illegal software. Like illegal downloads of MP3s. Are there any links about someone getting caught for downloading illegal software or court cases. I would love to read about it.

Thanks and sorry for so many questions?

I don't know much about how they're made, but it's (AFAIK, and often) illegal to reverse engineer software for most reasons, this being one of them.

It's possible to disassemble a program to see how it works, but it's not necessarily easy to read or interpret without learning assembly language first, and editing should be done with a hex editor (and very carefully, one false move can kill the exe).

The easiest way for companies to stop this is to.

Make free open source software.

:P

But really if there were no money backing companies, then there wouldnt be a level of software engerneering like there is today.

You have somewhat of a point...

My rule of thumb is if you have to ask, it is probably illegal.

P.S.  To K1u, if companies made open source software, they would not be a company they would be an organization.  And then all the software engineers would be out of work and no one would learn any coding because they would spend 80 grand waste four years of their lives and have no job waiting for them at the end of it.  I do love open source software, but there is a need for companies like Microsoft.

You are right, there has to be someone out there making some form of money.

keygens are illegal but if you make your own app with its own keygen for educational proposes its "should" be ok.

They could now be classed as illegal in America (and other countries) because they can be used to bypass copy protection without purchasing the product. They could also be classed as a hacking tool if you hit the wrong guy.
