    Recently I stumbled over some unbelievable offers on ebay. Like 4 u-he plugins (Diva & co.) for 20 $ or Omnisphere for 15 $ or Avenger for 10 $ (or so). While last year some offers for hardware synths (900,- for Jupiter 8) were obviously fake and disappeared quickly, the software offers do not disappear. How could they be legit ?
    Has anyone here some experiences with one of those ?

    On U-HE that's simple. If the seller only sells it for Win, or if the bundle does not include Hive2 (not Hive), it's out of cracked software as Hive2 is notoriously not available on crack sites, and mac apps are less obvious to find ;-)

    99,9% sure they are just cracked, ask teh seller how teh license transfer will work :)
    They are that cheeky to answer that they are cracked for lifetime and ebauy don't care

    here is a link to one of the listings on ebay. it has both windows and mac versions, including hive v2.0.1.9709.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/U-he-Synth...=22404848990881a5d71807f447fabceb6bfdb9e8296b

    U-he - Synth Bundle 2020 VST AAX for Win & MAC

    · u-he ACE v1.4.1.9709 - Gateway into modular

    · u-he Bazille v1.1.1.9619 - Modular Synthesizer

    · u-he Diva v1.4.4.9709 - The spirit of analogue

    · u-he FilterscapeVA v1.4.1.3898 - VA Sound mangling and filtering

    · u-he Hive v2.0.1.9709 - Sleek, streamlined, supercharged

    · u-he Repro v1.1.1.9669 - Two classics, recreated

    · u-he Zebra2 v2.9.1.9709 - The workhorse synth

    but for $14.99 i guarantee it isn't legit.

    When it sounds too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true!

    found this on another listing for the u-he complete bundle:

    "The files are obtained legally from broken PCs, which no longer require.
    You can't register or update the software.

    This product does not infringe on any copyright, Trademark or any other rights, or any of ebay's listing policies"

    his product does not infringe on any copyright,

    It's like when a country needs to insist on "republic" or "democratic" in their name, usually that's not a good sign haha

    I wonder if one can call an original keygen provided by a known group as "genuine"...I think it is not a false claim :) it would be 100 % genuine r2r or so.
    But I was also baffled about their user feedback...I did not see "pirated software" outcrys.Seller "rodjos-tqcbhi" for instance, who is a member since 2014, has 61 positive feedbacks in the last 6 months.
    Anyway, a seller named "Ameliadox", who offered Omnisphere if I remember correctly, is gone since today. But there are so many !
    They don't seem to have a lot of sales, but if they are in reality only one or two people with multiple accounts...

    Well, yes and no. I am asking if anyone here has tried out such an offer, just for experimentation.
    I mean, ebay is very strict with copyright. They must be extremely lucky, flying under the radar for months.
