John, you are clearly missing the point here. Yes its great to provide a free service and this is not a given,. What I and most others have an issue with is to go and interupt a granted fee service and as part of a upsell campaign they use the worst way posible to determine who is a comercial user and who is not. Using an unreliabel WHOIS record to see who is comercial user and who is not is just stupid. In my case i help my wife with her personal laptop from time to time. Even so the Ip she uses belongs to a corp network does that mean its comercial use ? No it does not so i will go out and bet that the IP schema they are using is producing a true / false not anywhere near 50%. And if you pay for service and support with another product and dont get a response in 3 days i would reconsider the vendor. Now if you buy software and no support , you might not get a responed fast if at all. There is software and there is a service and TeamViwer is a Service that uses a software to deliver that service. No Response no Service = no Revenue.

I am wondering how many people over the last couple of month expirienced the disconnects and the claim you are using the program comercially. Lets give credit to the company that they created a good product and ther commitment for none comercial fee usage. Thats said there is 2 reasons so many people complain, either your programmers **bleep** and cant detect comercial usage reliable or your marketing department decided it is worth **bleep**ing of the free usesers if you can convert 10% of them to paying customers. Neither is an acceptable practice. As they will ignore or brush people off who complain the best way is to force the issue. If you feel that you are wrongly prohibited from using the non comercial version, reply to this treat and if we have enough intrest we can look for a law firm who likes to take on class action cases. The profit they made from converting those free users will be gone faster then they think.
