Illegal Copies of Apps on Blackberry World

Is Blackberry World regulated in any way to stop illegal copies of apps. I sideloaded a genuine  free Android app that I have had since the first version when i had an android phone. Right now there are at least two other developers who have ported illegal copies of versions of that app. One is a  copy of paid variant of that app and one is an illegal copy of a free version. I know thay are exact copies because  the free one  says it is already  installed on my Z10 but is not the actual developer. Comments please. I feel very sorry for the developer who is not getting the revenue he is entitled to.

Dishonest people in the world? Never heard of that.


If you are familar with the apps and the developer, you should report it to the developer and let them handle it, of course.
