To avoid the risk of buying a pirated (illegal) copy of Acrorip V10, you should buy only from authorized resellers as listed at:


Any seller offering V10 or newer for a price that sounds too good to be true (V10 sells for between around $379 to $399), or is bundling a V10 RIP with a printer at a price that seems to good to be true should raise suspicion - if you want to double check whether a seller is selling (or has sold you) a legitimate installation of ACRORIP V10 or newer, you can report the incident here for investigation: 

Innocent infringers will be protected, but all available remedies will be pursued against willful infringers, including the civil pursuit of treble damages, statutory and/or punitive damages.

There have been some reports of sellers offering VIRUS LADEN software, some of the viruses detected include:

Furthermore, infringing software DOES NOT WORK as well as the original, is illegal and punishable by law all over the world, and is NOT UPGRADABLE.



The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of software is illegal. It is also unlawful to knowingly purchase illegitimate copies of software. Furthermore, pirated software is dangerous for consumers, as it could contain viruses including trojans, crypto viruses and/or malware / ransomware and could cause harm or fuel global organized crime.

Furthermore, the FBI’s Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) program investigates theft of trade secrets, counterfeit products, and copyright and/or trademark infringement cases. Criminal copyright infringement, including infringement without monetary gain, is investigated by the FBI and is punishable by fines and federal imprisonment. 

Authorized distributors/resellers of this software are LISTED HERE. If you believe you may have received a pirated version of V10 or newer software, you can report it for further investigation at (WWW.ACRORIP.COM/ANTIPIRACY.PHP). Innocent victims will be protected, but all available remedies will be pursued against willful infringers, including civil pursuit of treble monetary damages, statutory and punitive damages.
