Rip-offs are anti-spyware products that have stolen Intelectual Property from Spybot-S&D. In the first three cases, they have decrypted the database (that lists all threats) and used it for their own products. The latest rip-off ( SpyGone ) even copied the original files 1-to-1, and just changed icon and name of the main executable file.

It is not only illegit to use such a rip-off, it could also be dangerous, as rip-offs are never quite as current as the original, and with anti-spyware, it's very important to always keep up-to-date (if you haven't updated recently, why not do it now?).

The following list shows know rip-offs; I will also add some more details and evidence in the coming days.
