I have at least 7 licenses for Winzip and have always paid for the application. Obviously a lot of you are running hacked versions of the program. Well their is a new Sheriff in town and you may soon very well find Winzip to not be as nice when it comes to those running cracked versions.
Expect the next versions of the program to have significant security upgrades and features that only registered / verified users are going to be getting. I for one look forward to seeing what tricks they have up their sleeve and look forward to supporting one of the applications that is a integral part of my desktop. [Cnet]
