Based on what they said the whole problem is that they have not yet figured out a way to encrypt the traffic being transmitted for their hack. This means the first person who gets it can just watch what is being transmitted and will know how the hack is done themselves.This. I didn’t doubt that they did it but the more I think about it the more I’m on the fence. If I had an advantage like this I’d do everything to get it out and get that leg up. It’s also kinda funny that they’re so picky about people stealing and cracking their IP when they are in the business of reverse engineering and cracking other people’s IP’s lol.
I just think it’s a thing in demand and yeah make your money, but don’t hold it hostage when you could be helping the community and your own brand by having people know you were the innovators. But everyone runs their own business differently. I’d help the community.
Once the way to hack it is out people will undercut their prices and they wouldn't get paid for their work. It's the Apple/old Microsoft business model. "We took the time to figure this all out for you and you can have it once we guarantee we get ours."
Personally, I'm not a fan but as a mobile app developer I understand it. If it were me I'd opensource the hack so everyone could have it and then make my money supporting tunes while being known as the leader in the industry. Sure you'll loose money to those who aren't willing to pay, but you'll make more charging a premium to those who want it done right.
