Protection against unauthorized copying

and other forms of software piracy


We do not tie an electronic version to a particular computer of the license holder and do not protect opening of each folder or file with a password, as we understand that:

– that is very inconvenient for users;

– there are no programs inaccessible to hackers;

– it makes no sense to use the pirated version, because  the Rating is constantly updated;

– an average user of the Rating is a cultured person, who does not want to compromise his good name, and moreover to break the law.


In order to struggle against software piracy, we:

– use the most secure PDF format with banning of amendments, conversion to other file formats, printing, copying of the contents to the clipboard;

– give users ability to check the authenticity of an ordered or purchased copy of the Rating;

– carry out constant monitoring of Internet and give information about pirates to the authorities for administrative and criminal liability.


Attention! If the electronic version is sited in Internet for free downloading, including torrents and other file storages – it is certain piracy. In such cases, viruses may be spread under the guise of the Rating. We recommend also to beware of "sellers of air", who, offering to download the Rating, propose to make some manipulations at the mobile phone, credit card, etc.)

Please inform us about found distributors of pirated versions, "providers of viruses" and "sellers of air"!
