Because technically piracy's definition is "The unauthorized use or reproduction of another's work".How is it piracy?
yes and you're going to prison. kiss freedom goodbye, this is the price you pay for the cutting edgeHi, I was wondering if getting iOS 9 beta would be illegal if I don't have a developers account before the public beta release? Thanks
No, you are violating the NDA by talking about and showing non-developers iOS 9. It is piracy if you put it on your device without being a registered developer.It's not piracy, you're just violating the NDA.
You'll likely not get a definitive answer because some people have no morals.. no personal integrity. If you commit to an agreement (NDA in this case) then you should comply with the agreement. Keep your word.. its all a person truly has in life.Ok, thank you to everyone who participated, there are mixed opinions so I don't have a definite answer.
It's a software beta, not a government secret. This isn't WikiLeaks. People are allowed to talk about the beta. They even are allowing public beta testing for this very reason later in July.You'll likely not get a definitive answer because some people have no morals.. no personal integrity.

Good question. Since it is the physical device you sell, it might fall under the first-sale doctrine and Apple could not prevent it. Most likely the developer will be in breach of the licence agreement by doing this. However, before you update your system, you have to agree to the licence terms again.What if you buy a secondhand device, legitimately running iOS 9, but sold on by a registered dev? Put that if your piracy pipe and smoke it.
