BeejiveIM Fighting Piracy

Beejive IM is arguably one of the best IM clients for the iPhone and iPod Touch, however as a lot of users I prefer to try app’s before I buy and so I had the ‘cracked’ version of the Beejive IM running on my iPhone. It worked like a dream and I will be purchasing it however when I tried it out today something different happened.

I got this appear after trying to login:

Beejive IM Screen

The words PC Load Letter kept flashing so I tapped the screen, it closed Beejive IM and launched YouTube and loaded the video Office Space – I Stole Something.

Now this never came up before and so must be done server-side, but it goes to show how that App Developers are beginning to fight back against piracy.

Update – Beejive have come out with this statement:

We have recently implemented new anti-piracy measures in BeejiveIM for iPhone. We have tried to keep our approach fun with an error message and a video. But we hope our message is clear: please respect the work of developers.
