Rohit Chander


This morning FOUR of my good friends forwarded this email from this person Rohit Chander - rohitstudios@gmail.com - who is asking everyone for a password to Showit Web. I seriously laughed because of how bold this joker is...honestly - talk about no shame. I'm not super big on security but a few months ago Todd implemented a new registration system that tells us who registered the application and how many times it's been registered so it's pretty simple to see who is sharing their codes.

What's even funnier is that now when somebody googles the name Rohit Chander or Rohitstudios.com this post will come up and they'll see it and read about it.

Gee, he wants your software for free but he password-protects his own galleries! I feel like sending a mass email asking for HIS PASSWORDS!

I was just about to forward the email this guy sent me when I saw this post.

Is saving a few bucks really worth destroying your integrity and your reputation?

Alisha said...

I got one of those today too! I was gonna forward it to you also DJ but had a wedding today. SAME EMAIL! DELETE!

Sean Azul said...

Hey DJ.

I just read this. Wow, it's just horrible that someone who is trying to create a business out of photography would actively pursue an illegal copyright violation like this.

You are the man for posting this up. Just goes to how you how valuable a product ShowIt Web REALLY is, when people would rather try to scam their way into a piece of software like this, instead of paying for one of the cheap alternates out there.

Keep up the good fight bud!
