I am one of you and just published a paid full version of our game to the Nokia store around 1 week ago and while I did some google searching today to see if any reviews have been made about the game yet, I had to find some very disturbing news.
As it turns out there are at least two websites from which you can download any paid game(full version) that exists on the Nokia Store for free, I am sure your game or app is on that website as well.
I suggest that you contact the filehost severs to see if you can get those files removed and maybe even write to the person that own this website.
However, the real and disturbing issue is how this file got into the hands of this person. I my case only Nokia has access to the full version of our game, but still this person is able to hold the cracked/signed version of the game.
We applied DRM 1.0 to the game, the best protection Nokia provides us right now, but either that is completely useless or it could be that someone inside Nokia QA that has access to the signed version of all the games distributes them for free.
I personally know a person that knows a person inside Nokia QA that gave him a couple of full version of games on the Nokia Store for free. So if that guy could do that I wouldn't be surprised at all if that is the case.
Either way, no matter whose fault it is, we are all losing out here, both Nokia and the developers are losing precious revenue to these websites and many of us base our entire existence on these sales.
Obviously something has to be done to stop this illegal distribution of our hard work!
Personally, I doubt we can really legally achieve any success by suing the owners of those websites, since they will always find ways to get of the loop. It will probably be just a waste of money and time. Only Nokia herself could do something against those people.
So in my opinion the only thing we can really do is to think about the future, how are we gonna stop this in the future. First, we probably need better encryption and protection for our Apps, maybe DRM 2.0 will provide us with the correct antidote, but first Nokia needs support it.
In addition, Nokia really needs to crack down on their own QA team and built in some really tight security measures to stop any illegal distribution from inside.
Personally, I am very disappointed and angry about this entire affair, since I was living in the believe that Nokia/Symbian had a very solid protection against piracy. And I just hope that Nokia already knows about this issue because these websites have been around for some time.
In our case, I just had to google the name of our game and found these website under the first 5 hits, so it is very easy to find these websites.
I think we got a real problem on our hands here and need to resolve it as soon as possible. I am sure you think so too.
