It's not meant as an antipiracy thing. It's simply a limitation of the software he is using. I wrote him about it when I had a couple of failed downloads that decremented the counter. He said to just let him know as I did and the guy running it for him will reset the counter.

FWIW the failed downloads weren't his fault or his software. I was trying to download on my phone which had an ad blocker installed that also blocks popups. When clicking on the download link it opens a new browser window like a lot of sites do. Pausing the ad blocker solved the problem which was entirely my fault.

Actually, can you give a reason why anyone should actually develop or maintain software on the Amiga with users having this attitude?
Maybe you misinterpreted me - I would never advocate for piracying, especially in a market as small as the Amiga. Please re-read my post, and you'll see what I mean. I was just criticising how such a system only inconveniences legit purchasers, since people who will want to pirate it will just find other ways to do so.

Cheers for correctly interpreting my badly formulated post.

Yeah, the joys of not being a native speaker, I guess
