I do believe that sort of practice is illegal, if so by putting their name on the thing that could be used as evidence in a prosecution.

Careful on that... you may be accused by particular people *coughDOTcoughhack* for photo-editing their name on stuff like they did poor coconut.  Of course, we all know how silly that notion is, though.  Tongue

Either way, the fact that their program phones home and tries to run something suspicious on people's computers isn't as surprising to me.  Nothing about their shenanigans surprises me anymore, just like the fact that Peggy broke WesH's conditions on using his Sims 3 tools for the sake of making pay items doesn't. To me, it all seems like a big merry-go-round, experiencing the same things from before.   rolleyes

I highly doubt if our colleges at TSR. will be making any noise about it. What they have done there is committed an offence and if taken to court can be prosecuted.
This action is no different than that by done EA. with their inclusion of securom in their software for which they were taken to court.
If a person unknowingly  installs that sort of file which is included and hidden in another file on their pc. then if one can trace the thing to its origin one can take them to court.
The people at TSR. must have had a round of dumb sandwiches for breakfast to put their name on the crap.

That's insane!
Not much of a surprise, admittedly, but still that spells bad news bears for TSR.
 
I don't think that EA's Securom would be on the same wavelength as this atrocity, as EA's intentions were to eliminate piracy (correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not much of a Simmer these days Smiley ), whereas this is just theft on its own. (again, citation needed Wink )

The good news is that some sims 3 CC. is already available on the booty. Business as usual one would presume.

Nope. I did the slide test on the pictures. They are authentic.

I am so shocked to hear T$R is handing out a virus. Shocked I say....

I know what you mean... but with the way I put it, it was just a pretty bad way to show it was a joke.  Those who know how the forementioned are like with screenshots and their "tutorials" on how to spot "fakes" would know what I'm getting at.  Grin

Slide tested the pics as well, and I can confirm with my good buddy Zordac that they're authentic, as is T$R authentic for their gastronomical FAIL. If anyone still DL's anything from that site, they are truly ignorant. Might come off as harsh, but someone's gotta say it...may as well be me. Here's definitive proof that their tools install Spyware to your PC, yet I'll bet my next paycheck that people will still flock their in droves to get their content. Gluttons for punishment? Yea...I'd say so. I've long since deleted my T$R account since the last incident involving their questionable protocols, so much like everyone else has posted, this doesn't surprise me one bit.

Just as a putting it straight, we are in no way, shape or form, colleagues with TSR, Peggy or any other pay site. This is a free site and the people here have a bunch of things they don't have. Things like integrity. Honesty. TALENT.
