Re: copyright issues -> http://www.simdigital.com.br

Here, exist two problems.

The major relevance is reply great user and developer topet05, about false users.


I Agree with Topet05

He is correct, for more details (admins site) contact-me in my e-mail gmail. I sent PM and e-mail for Onokazu about this problem here and brazilians community.

Other is message Herko.

Herko.

Sorry, my portuguese/brazillian is non-existant, so you'll have to do with my english.

I'm ok with this fork (which it technically is) if the following conditions are met:

- The code (a derrivative work of the XOOPS open sourced code) is released under the terms of the GPL 2.0. This doesn't mean you can't sell the product, it does mean you can't restrict buyers freedom to use and do with it that they want. Failure to comply with this condition may result in legal action.

- The original source of your code (the XOOPS Project) is credited in every file containing a bit of original code. The code may be open source, but it IS copyrighted by the XOOPS project and its original authors. The copyright is licenced (making it copyleft), but not removed.

- The XOOPS project is credited somewhere public as well. Its only fair to do so when you make money with other people's work, with your own work added to it.

Herko


I agree 100% with Herko and is my spirit too

But the problem can not ignorate for admins here, please, send logs files server about false users.

Thanks for all attention.

"MaurĂ­cio", there is any personal problem with me?

What's the problem with rename modules if it is according GPL?

Moderator, can you answer if there is any problem with rename modules?

Everybody knows me in the XOOPS Brasilian Community.
I NEVER hide that i work with Xoops.

Thanks a lot.

Re: copyright issues -> http://www.simdigital.com.br

Do the files themselves have the copyright credits of the original module and its author? If so, you're within what the GPL allows you to do.

Again, I state here that it would be not just nice but decent to credit the original authors of the software you're using. They spent a LOT of time to make it possible, and should be rewarded for their effort.

Ok Herko, because this we respect the credits into Source.
But it is another discution! Don't let us follow that mind line...

The only thing that i want you know, there is some bad guys using this forum to denegrid my company because they have a personal problems with me and with brazilian XOOPS Community.

Tks a lot.

I think that is the end of Subject.

Regards,
Gustavo.

Re: copyright issues -> http://www.simdigital.com.br

Well I feel inclined to leave it, freedom of speech, open source and all that, but if everybody is in agreement that it's not breaking the GPL I'll remove the topic.
