Clearly illegal, has been around for quite some time now.

This is a very good example of why we have iLok security now.

Definitely illegal, and should be reported and taken down.

Several sample sets on eBay at the moment. I've reported most of them, but they're still there.

The sets I see on US eBay (from a search on 'hauptwerk') appear to be either from an actual sample set developer, or an authorized reseller (who is on this forum, and who I know personally) selling licensed product that requires a key. I don't see the typical hacked stuff …

Just because a sample set is on eBay doesn't mean it's a fake ..

This one is obviously illegal.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hereford-Cat ... SwK7ZfihBu
It says it works on HW 4 or 5 and doesn't need a licence update or key.
Also it's "original not XL addition". The 67-stop version *always* included the XL version.
The same item (from the same seller) is also on eBay.nl.
