    I've been selling a PHP script I coded for quite some time (2 years). I noticed a website was selling the same script without any kind of permission from me. I contacted the owner, and got this response back:

    What can I do? Any help is greatly appreciated. :sadwavey:

    The WHOIS info on his website is public, and the name he signed this email with matches the record.

    The terms of service that users agree to before purchasing the script clearly forbids distributing the script.

    either follow through and really sue his ass or use the cash you would use for a lawyer and instead pay some mean ass hackers to make his world a fucking nightmare and teach his smug ass a lesson.

    Whats his site...shouldn't be to hard to find out what else he might own.

    unleash his info on the main forum and he'll be sorry he sold your script :rofl:

    but seriously, it's sad scum like this exists and don't see anything wrong with it. did you distribute a license with it (something like vbulletin does here?

    He also owns earnse, phpminisite, and bizbla.

    I don't use a license, just a terms of use agreement before a purchase is made.

    his response is clearly an attempt to bully you away. you dont need to be a business to hold a copyright to something.

    the english language all spoken the same, you can only copyright the words you invent :rofl:

    this guy is a tool.

    :coolugh: Nice work - you're better than me at this stuff.

    All the WHOIS info is the same. Seems that he uses that gmail account for almost everything: paypal, domains, etc. Can't find any MySpace or Facebook info.

    He's trying to play tough guy so play back. Tell him his argument is bullshit (using the something like the post above) then tell him you don't give a shit about the legal position you have...you don't want to waste your time in court and instead you "might" just have to reach out and "call in some favors" and instead of dealing with lawyers and that crap you'll just give him a "good luck" with his internet future. You'll just explain your issues with him with your friends who will make sure he has a fun time trying to sell your stolen property online again...as well as any collateral damage that may or may not happen as you wouldn't know since it would be out of your hands.

    I wouldn't threaten any violence (implied or not), he'll use it against you because he's a fucking pussy like that.

    Would be shitty for him if someone send a shitload of fake clicks to his adbrite and adsense ads.. Would hate to see him banned from those programs.

    I think the WHOIS info is fake. It seems like he's been running websites for a few years now - so he knows what he's doing. Plus, I called the number and no-one picked up. Perhaps a virtual number (grandcentral, etc).

    So it would appear that I have absolutely nothing on him.

    Although the clicker idea is rather interesting.

    That guy is retarded and needs to be sued up his ass. Copyright is automatic and no paperwork is actually needed (it helps though). If you have a receipt of sale for the script from 2 years ago that would definitely help in your case.

    At least write up a formal "cease and desist" letter. Call his bluff.
