Recommended Posts


Filezilla.exe from FilezillaPortable (PortableApps.com) is being detected, I believe incorrectly...

I think we started going after some of their stuff after they started helping people steal our software .

Hi Bruce,

I think you may have PortableApps.com confused with another portable software site. We're pretty much the only portable software site that does things 100% above-board, respecting copyright law, trademark law and all open source licenses. Not to mention the fact that our whole platform, format and tools are open source and open for all to use.

You may be thinking of another site that replaces the S in PortableApps with a Z and is stealing our software as well (violating our copyright and trademark), and combining it with your software to make an illegal portable package of it available.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to contact me directly.

Kind Regards,

John T. Haller

PortableApps.com Lead Developer
