Recently, we have received reports that crooks are peddling OMNeT++ licenses for commercial use in China. Even if they offer to sell you OMNEST, which is the only version meant for commercial use, you need to know that you are putting yourself at risk if you buy from an unauthorized source.

There is only one authorized OMNEST reseller in China: VI-RE Technologies ( No other company, or individual may sell you a legitimate copy of OMNEST in China. VI-RE has our authorization to prosecute pirates and cheats peddling illegal wares.

If you have been approached by anyone besides our authorized agent, or have already fallen victim to these pirates, please get in touch with us so that we may discuss legalization options. Apart from being safe from litigation and the burden of using stolen goods, you too could take advantage of the benefits of qualified local support with our qualified partners.
