    Default Submitting a Paid App to ModMyi's Source
    Okay so let's say I submit an application that costs $1.99 to ModMyi's Cydia source. What's stopping some user from navigating to their Applications directory, after they buy the app, and uploading it for the whole world to download for free?

    So unlike the AppStore, ModMyi doesn't add any protection? That's understandable I guess. Are there any further steps I could take to make it harder for users to do this? So it actually requires some work for the users to be able to hack it and then upload it. Otherwise, the application is too vulnerable and it only takes some 12 year old with two dollars in his bank account for my application to uploaded to the internet.

    Some developers put some sort of security in their apps I believe, or maybe even some type of activation code. Nothing is really protected 100%. There are always going to be people that find ways to pirate it no matter what type of security/DRM is on it.
