    Not only are you going to be identified by the Google Account that you used to purchase it, but each phone has unique identifiers as well.

    You're more than welcome to try, but I would seriously advise against it - the developers work hard for their apps, and the compensation for most paid apps is less than the price of a single meal.....

    People who do that are simply RIPPING OFF the Dev's and their hard work, Time and effort are nothing more than Thieves. If you Like the app and use it support the Dev!.........

    Not entirely. Musicians have more than 1 stream of income. Devs have 1.
