    I'm not sure what you mean by "just as bad".

    We consider the cloned VCDS software bad because it's blatantly stealing our work.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Do you feel that these apps have also just copied VCDS then adapted your software to work via an app?

    No, not our software. However, some of them have (at least in the past) taken our data (label files and so on).
