How avoid the Leak of your scripts
By using leaked scripts on other sites, you expose yourself to malware, viruses, backdoor, you are likely to have an outdated version not optimized and not adapted to Garry's mod updates and also you risk installing backdoors, in short everything you don't want, here I always update my scripts. Keep in mind that when something is free, it's because you are the product. There is always a counterpart to this kind of actions.
It may seem logical, but never share your server access codes when a developer asks you to do so to provide support. A good developer who knows what he is selling does not need your FTP access. Report your problem through a ticket, no matter where you bought it, explaining how to reproduce the bug. You will be doing him a favor.
1. What is the leak?

The leak of a script consists in sharing a script that you bought on a site evolving towards illegal and harmful activities, that is forbidden, sometimes it can be a member of your disreputable staff doing it without informing you, from one day to the next you find yourself banned without understanding the reason. Sometimes it is the customer himself.
2. What is a leaker and why leaker?
The majority of people who leak worker scripts are certainly not people who get things by working hard, often those are people who have a need for recognition and power. Being thanked gives them a feeling of having done something right (on a cons site...). Don't give them the recognition they need, they don't deserve it. They have the impression to help, but prevent the workers to have the financial means and to continue their works and also to live from it, it takes a lot of time to make a script, to survey its clientele, to continue to update them, it is detrimental to the professional activity and to the possible future updates and quite simply can slow down the development of the following scripts. Tracking is a time consuming activity. So is managing debugging requests from people who don't support it.
It is strongly discouraged to use the leaked versions of my scripts in the commercial context, I understand that you can't afford it, but if you generate an income with leaks there are questionable issues to ask. I respect those who test the leaks before buying, that's why I try to offer prices that are not far from a VIP or Premium Standard price.
I don't ban users who use leaks. Only leakers
3. How does Norda DRM (also called Nordahl DRM) protect you at the same time?
I have designed a DRM that not only protects my business. But it also protects you from a suspicious staff member or a script theft on your Gmod, web or other servers.
Thanks to the DRM system I designed you can see the servers that use your scripts without your permission and block them, and therefore also report them without being banned yourself. This can happen when you have an untrustworthy user on your staff accessing the FTP of your server. Keep in mind that you are still responsible for the admins and moderators you recruit.
4. Where to find leaked Gmod scripts?
If you come here with the idea to find leaks, you are wrong. You will not find any leaks on Originahl Scripts, 100% of the scripts sold here are original and official scripts.
Leak = Leak, a product shared on another unofficial site. For example Richard the admin of Gmodstore leaked my DRM code on their forum.
Leaker = Those who leak resources, scripts, mods, addons without the authorization of the programmer.
DRM = Digital Rights Management. It is a technique used to secure the conditions of access and use of a digital work.
