    Is the creation of a link pointing to a search engine WITH RESULTS TYPED IN a violation of the copyright section of forum rules?

    Said links only go to a search engine. However, would it be seen as attempting to circumvent the rules of the board?

    I edited out your links, because I don't want to discuss specific forum posts, but the answer is yes that would violate the rules. We would view it as helping someone find bootleg or pirated software in violation of the last sentence of the rule I have quoted here.
