    Hello, I am once again having copyright issues, only this time it’s on a non-wordpress site, in fact, I think it is a self hosted site, I am very tired of everyone copying me and am ready to file a lawsuit almost. I have copyright, but everyone seems to make there own version of my widget, however, this person is advertising the widget for wordpress blogs, maybe you could force it’s removal from those blogs? It’s funny how after I created my widget everyone copies me.
    The hosting site is: http://vincentbrana.com/currentpin.html
    And the evil wordpress site is:
    http://draerex.wordpress.com
    And my original version is:
    http://www.locked.data.googlepages.com/pinloghome
    Thank you, I will be filing a DMCA takedown notice soon but do you have any ideas how I can prevent it next time?

    i see that your widget is being used a lot, it’s pretty popular. you should really make a legal copyright about that. and if you are getting any more trouble, report to WordPress whenever you see things that they copied from you.

    Yes I DO have a copyright on it, only people still copy it.

    But orbvab, shouldn’t you be proud of yourself now that it is proven that you have contributed something that so many people recognise as valuable? How many downloads have you had? This is something to brag about!

    0 downloads, it is a piece of code. And people are copying me!

    I hate copycats! I worked hard to create that and people copy me.
    To answer your question, I think it is on about 50 blogs. Not sure though.

    So much of what you use is freeware. Your blog, penguin stuff, widgets, picture, games, videos and much more and then some. It all came with tons of permissions to do what ever you want. And now you won’t contribute your own work?

    See it works like this, I created a widget to be mass distributed and to help people, but some people copy me by making the’re own and hence harming the popularity of mine and infringing on my copyright.

    It’s not the way things work. If you could not copy an idea the world would one have had one blog: the first one. Some ideas can’t be copyrighted.

    Actualy, copyright expires after 10 years, but no one had one before I did, and they are so simular.

    You don’t know what I copy right is. You can’t copy right an idea. You’d need like, a patent for that.

    I DO KNOW WHAT COPYRIGHT IS!!!!! COPYRIGHT URSELF, WOULD YA!!!!

    #200139

    Not all things can be copyrighted. You can’t copyright the phenomenon book. Because if you could only one man in the whole wide world could print books. You can however copyright a specific book. Can you see the difference, wiidude?

    You can’t stop people from using you idea for similar widget.

    #200140

    Software can be copyrighted. Windows is, Mac OS is, MS Office and all its programs are. Widget code, if it is original, and created by you can be copyrighted.

    On top of that there is an other problem. The widget that orbvab made is contains a picture of a book that orbvab did not make. That picture was made by Club Penguin and belongs to them. You can’t claim copyrights for someone elses work. That is illegal.

    Here is what I am going to do, I will let wordpress staff decide if you broke copyright, I will just wait and see if your blog is suspended. That way we can settle this.

    Actually, I don’t claim copyright for the image, the idea and the code.
