Well, with expensive software like LightWave, any deal that seems too good to be true IS too good to be true...

If you have copyright enforcement people where you are (such as the Federation Against Copyright Theft or the Business Software Alliance) then you should report it to them.

If you bought this pirated software from a store you should report it with all the details to NewTek. If you bought it from eBay then you'll have to contact them an deal with their complaints process.

There's certainly no legitmate way for you to get the software now without paying the purchase price like the rest of us. I have a full copy of LightWave for sale on eBay at the moment going fairly cheap but I guess that's of little consolation...

If online, you had to get it from someone that probably used a credit card to process... which means you probably can get the credit card company to help you fight this... also, places to go and report online are http://www.fbi.gov http://www.bsa.org and http://www.bbb.org - BSA and Better Business Bureau both have online submission forms that should help... If you bought from a business they MUST respond to BBB or else get blacklisted which is bad for any business... FBI may or may not get back with you, but will take your tip and probably do something about it... give the forms ALL the info that you can as specifics help a lot.. If you bought from EBAY, report to them too...
