I've said this elsewhere but, if you never had or have pirated software on your phone or computer,I'll kiss ur ***. This "community" is based off of hacking,anti-establishment and piracy.
Now me personally,I have supported a few themers like Toyvan by paying for the themes. I think it's perfectly acceptable to support the creator. However, when someone calls out someone else and demands things because their theme has been pirated, I think it's nothing short of hypocrisy.
So when the RIAA comes out and says for all music pirates to remove music they illegally obtained, I bet NONE of you did it and that goes for software and apps alike.
Just accept it and move on. People who actually care about supporting, will, but don't call out someone for piracy when you, yourself, are guilty of it as well.
As the old adage goes..."sweep around your own door..."

Sorry man, but if Microsoft can't curb piracy of it's own OS not to mention game developers and their games, you don't have a chance. There's ALWAYS a work-around and someone will exploit it.
Once again, the hypocrisy is astounding...As you browse this forum with a pirated copy of the OS of your choice while listening to pirated music with a pirated copy of Iron Man 2 playing on your TV, keep shouting "I F'n HATE PIRATES"....Everyone will take you more seriously

i still love the classic quote by some clueless dork moderator over at some other ban happy site
"sure ive seen a pirated move, but a movie is totally different then software"
-applecoder (or something like that)
then a few members actually put the quote in their signature and til this day he still doesnt get it, he's proud they quoted him. lol
also, im sure this thread will eventually get snuffed and my hit has already been ordered. like jack bauer, i wont quit til the truth is out!

Cp u r rationalizing. Apple would disagree with your assertion that jb is not stealing but we don't care what they think.
If we can define piracy as ut relates to iPhone themes we would say that it is the taking and using or distributing someone elses creation without permission or paying for it. So what's the difference in taking something that apple created, slapping a new color on it, giving it a name then selling and or distributing it?

here's the difference -- jailbreaking, theming and even installing cracked apps does not mean that you initially did not pay hundreds of dollars to Apple for the device to begin with, and pay $30 or so in addition to regular cell phone charges to operate the phone on a monthly basis. I don't think jailbreaking can be compared to theme piracy at all - stealing an iphone and using it for free every month would be the equilavent of theme piracy in my opinion.
Apple is simply behind the times when it comes to jailbreaking. It's akin to Lexus/Toyota selling you a car then telling you that you can't change the wheels, add a spoiler, or customize it in any way. Theme Creators who sell themes are akin to an aftermarket auto-accesory dealer (hello blkcadi ) who sells and installs accessories to modify stock vehicles - would you just walk into said aftermarket auto dealer's shop and steal some of their stuff just because you can?

The difference is....you arent taking the OS and STEALING it from Apple, you are simply modifying it against their permission, which is NOT STEALING BY LAW, nor is it breaking any laws.
Its actually closer to this example:
You buy a new truck and put a large suspension lift kit on it, according to the manufacturers fine print, you just voided your warranty on that truck by modifying it.
When you jailbreak, your modifying the original aspects of the product you bought, and again, by the manufacturers fine print, void your warranty.
Taking a theme, app or anything else that is sold with a price.....IS STEALING BY LAW.
