According to him (about page on his blog) there is nothing illegal in modifying software because he's from Iran:
(I currently living in "Iran" and I obey its copyright law* which tells me creating, modifying, publishing serials/keygens/patches/cracks for "abroad softwares" are absolutely legal) If you have any legal issues please contact appropriate media file owners/hosters to remove your copyrighted contents.
He's right that there is no international copyright authority yet. The Pirate Bay had quite a bit of fun
with this, telling off a lot of major companies.
However, while I don't think Pirate Bay is innocent, its clear that Martik is just a spineless scammer. If you read his responses up on the first link that spawned this thread
, you can see he's interested in arguing the point to the extent that it serves his interests. He ignores claims that copyright applies to his work, then that copyright applies to him based on where he lives, and finally charges for software while claiming not to make any money.
Both martik blogs on blogger are now deleted. Big thanks to Blogger team.
BTW He already has new blog on Blogger:
Any way we can help out with contacting the blogger folks on the force of the last deletion?
