We hereby caution all users of the GMAT section against posting ANY copyrighted material on the forums, whether it is Kaplan, Veritas, ManhattanGMAT or anything else that is meant to be bought for usage and not shared for free.

Please spread the message in the community and help us keep PaGaLGuY a clean and legal place to prepare for GMAT.

To summarize the above - we ask you to be cautious while posting/uploading material and verify if it is legal to do it. If we find anyone posting material illegally on PaGaLGuY, the responsibility of preotecting himself/herself from legal action lies solely on him.

Wrong thread buddy

GMAC has ended its investigation and has communicated to the people concerned. So if you were worried that you could be in the firing line and haven't heard anything yet, you can relax and continue with regular life...

cool - then we have to buy most of the stuff!!! not great, but law it is!
No MBA for me right now - which could mean also mean "ever" since it now looks too late in my life/career
I am getting a lot of mails/PMs/calls asking me about what the email from GMAC means and what the 6000+ people who suscribed to the VIP membership. I really don't have an answer since FAQ...
To add, GMAC has said that it will initially focus on those who posted 'real' questions. This would take most of the VIPs out of the investigation. I doubt GMAC will pursue rest later.
@PsychoD, I heard about scoreTop first time from you ( In one of the Amit saboo's sessions, nearly 2 years...
Just to clarify please read:
If you look at the details of the document you will see that the Plaintiff (GMAC) has named the defendants as "Lei Shi, d/b/a "Scoretop.com" (obviously "Stone" of ST) and importantly "John Does 1-5". As you know "John Doe" refers to someone whose na...

I had used Score top material via subscribing to VIP membership. Now I have received a email from GMAC stating that "We are writing to inform you that this information shows that you have purchased GMAT(R) study materials through VIP membership in REAL GMAT EXAM QUESTIONS .

That is pretty low. I am glad that you took the high road and gave in a strong reply. We can't stop people from asking on PMs - but we do need more aware folks like you who spread the word and stay strong

I recently recieved a PM from a Puy asking for the questions I encountered on the test. I've strongly replied to him (her?) as well.
Do let me know if I should report this at any specific place on PG.

did my favour by removing the links....put on net by me..
It was quite anticipated, ST was shut down during '06 when it grew its user base popularising the so called "JJs" susbequently it changed the content to "in house tutor generated questions" or VIP section as they called it. This too, seemed to cast a doubt over their authenticity.

I was surprised when Scoretop was operating so blatantly in the 2004 to 06 period so it was not surprise to read this: Courts Give Graduate Management Admission Council Domain Name Ownership, Hard Drive in Copyright Infringement Suit
