Innovation Rights are Reserved

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Darul Iftaa Jordan
What is the ruling of Sharia on using (Crack) which transfers experimental computer programs into original ones?


All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

Resolutions of the jurisprudential and accredited scientific institutions make clear that innovation rights are preserved to whom they belong. Although these rights are moral, it is customary that they are owned, which makes them possessionable according to Islamic jurisprudence. Thus, it isn`t permissible to transgress against or to dispose of without the permission of their owners. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
