so delete this if it is necessary. I have heard that you can get free applications by hacking them. When/if you hack them and download them, isn't there a license and a number on them so apple can tell if more than one copy is out? Also, since You yourself didn't buy it and it's not on your account, do they update in itunes or the app store on your ipod? I do not plan on hacking apps, ive just wondered a long time and can't find the answer on the web.
