Most of my progs are not quite on the up and up. The way I look at it, I'm helping them develop better, anti-pirate software, right? And as far as the developer/code writer stand point, that'* pretty much an hourly job isn't it? That means you get paid regardless. Last time I checked, you don't get royalties on all the copies of the software that get sold.

That depends. In my case I was the owner of a business and software was the product. Therefore, I would directly benefit from every unit sold. Granted much of what I did was custom, at the same time much of it was generic enough to be used by a lot of clients.

Prior to that it was 100% non-legit
Go back and read your MSDN license agreement Software is for development purposes only, i.e. you can not use it for day-to-day stuff.

So guessing you are still 100% non-legit
