Keycode Products Now Require Approval
on February 12th, 2013
Keycode products are products that deliver a product activation keycode or URL by themselves or with a download.
Currently, 4% of products in DPD are keycodes. Of that 4%, we’ve found that a large percentage of those are used for illegal purposes, being it selling stolen software or game activation keys, links to download stolen software not hosted by our service, and more.
This is against the DPD Acceptable Use Policy and we can not, as a responsible company, tolerate distribution of stolen or illegal keys with our service.
For this reason, all new trial and paid accounts now have keycode products disabled by default. In addition, we are cracking down and doing an account-by-account search for illegal activity and closing those accounts without warning, as outlined in our Acceptable Use Policy.
We understand that there are legitimate uses for keycode products- thats why we designed the feature! It is not our intention to penalize vendors who have legitimate uses for keycode products, and vendors who are currently selling legal keycodes are not affected by this change.
