>Actually about a decade-old piece of shit news you brainlet

No it isn't, the revocation of the license happened yesterday.

Nope, the revocation of the "Geek Feminists" license /just/ occurred. 2019. January.

And YES, the author can revoke.

You were asking "Oh if you can do it, go an do it".

Now it has been done, and let it be noted that you shut your mouth suddenly.

The last time a revocation of a GPL licensed work happened, it was a blanket-world-wide revocation (differing from this revocation from a small number of people) and the distros DID stop distributing the affected piece of software.

The license is a gratuity, with no interest attached. It can be rescinded by the grantor. Just as you can kick a guest out of your property that has worn out their welcome (you gave them license (permission) to occupy, and now you are rescinding that license), you can do the same regarding other property.

One of the mods on there (CAP_NAME) is autistic and freaks-out any time there's a vaguely political discussion. Ironically the reddit Linux community isn't totally cucked, but there's a handful of people who reeeee every time the majority there decries censorship and political correctness and he steps in to lock the thread, delete any comments that make too good of a point, and then will usually make some kind of post about how he's banned all the troublemakers and that it was actually all a disinformation campaign full of lies.

He once sperg'd out because people request an open mod log and he's mad that it retains moderator actions and deleted comments but users can delete their own stuff.

Only on plebbit can entirely ordinary communities get taken over by a couple of faggots with zero recourse. Some of the board owners on this site can be retarded sometimes, but you almost never see a single volunteer becoming de facto dictator and waving their dick around; anyone who did would find themselves without any activity before long. On reddit, people don't even seem to notice it happening.

Anyways, your post was already removed. He's been paranoid about the people he banned returning as of late so they've cracked-down on posting requirements. Also, reddit monitors for too many clicks coming from outside websites. Either scramble your referrers (GNU IceCat supports this natively) or be sure to brigade by going to home page in a separate tab and navigating to the post "naturally". Otherwise they'll just drop votes or shadowban you.

(Author rescinds GPL licensed code from "Geek Feminists")

(Author rescinds GPL'd code from "Geek Feminists")

Reportedly, the author of the GPL licensed text-mode casino game "GPC-Slots 2" has rescinded the license from the "Geek feminist" collective.

The original author, after years of silence, notes that the "Geek Feminist" changed[1] a bunch of if-then statements which were preceded by a loop waiting for string input to a switch statement. The author reportedly noted that to use a switch statement in such an instance is no more preformant than the if-thens. Switch statements should be used where the input to the switch statement is numerical, and of a successive nature, for most efficient use of the jump table that is generated from said code.

The author reportedly was offended, after quiet observation of the group, that the "Geek Feminists" mocked his code, mocked his existence as a male, and never did any work on the code afterwards and never updated to include new slot machines added to the original code by author subsequently.

The author notes that he neither sought nor received any compensation for the granted license, that is was a gratuitous license, and that there never was any refutation of his default right to rescind given. (A right founded in the property law of licenses.)

The copyright owner has reportedly watched quietly as each year the "Geek Feminists" published a recount of their heroic efforts regarding his code.[2][3] Presumably he has now had enough of it all...

The author notes that the SF Conservancy attempts to construe a particular clause in the GPL version 2 license text as a "no revocation by grantor clause", however that clause states that if a licensee suffers and automatic-revocation by operation of the license, that licensees down stream from him do not suffer the same fate. The author of "GPC-Slots 2" reportedly notes that said clause does only what it claims to do: clarifies that a downstream licensee, through no fault of his own, is not penalized by the automatic revocation suffered by a licensee he gained a "sub-license" from (for lack of a better term.)

The author reportedly notes that version 3 of the GPL did not exist when he published the code, additionally the author notes that even if there was a clause not to revoke, he was paid no consideration for such a forbearance of a legal right of his and thus said clause is not operative against him, the grantor, should it exist at all.

(Editor's note: GPL version 3 contains an explicit "no-revocation-by-grantor" clause, in addition to a term-of-years that the license is granted for. Both absent in version 2 of the GPL)

The author reportedly has mulled an option to register his copyright and then to seek damages from the "Geek Feminists" if they choose to violate his copyright post-hence.

(Editors note: Statutory damages for willful copyright infringement can amount to $150,000 plus attorney's fees for post registration violations of a differing nature to pre-registration violations.)

GPC-Slots 2 is a text console mode casino game available for linux with various slot machines, table games, and stock market tokens for the player to test his luck. For the unlucky there is a Russian Roulette function.

[Notice: the revocation of the "Geek Feminists"'s license /just/ occurred. 2019. January.]

Addendum: Statements from the program author:

"It's my right to rescind the permission I extended.

I have done so.

You speak as if me controlling my property is a criminal act.

And to you people, perhaps it is.

If the "geek feminists" wanted a secured interest, they would have to pay for one."

"I did rescind the license, yesterday"


 No.1018809

If the news gets out, it may edify the linux programmers who still own their copyrights, and show them that they can, indeed, rescind.

Last time someone rescinded, it was news on Slashdot, and the distros did indeed remove the software (it was a world-wide blanket rescission, not a targeted on as here).

This can be a nucleus of debate, to teach the linux copyright holders their legal rights, and have them talk to their lawyers.

But I just /cannot/ get the message out. My post are just flagged and deleted no matter what. I need your help.

The crux is: a gratuitous license (which the GPL is) without an attached interest is revocable in the US. The author can (and has) chosen to make use of his rights. The same is applicable to the linux-kernel: the copyright owners there (the programmers) each can revoke license to their code, say, if they are displeased with the CoC and being ruled over by non-programmers.

If you would like a more in-depth discussion:

http://illinoisjltp.com/journal/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/kumar.pdf

(With full citations).

(PDF attached)

Page 12 starts the relevant discussion.

Page 16 gives the rundown on all the ways the GPL is not a contract.

---

For the past 2 years every FOSS programmer, except ESR has contested it. Vehemently.

Yet they complain about the "CoC" up their ass.

I explain to them in detail the foundation of the law and their options: revoke the fucking license. No one paid you a dime, or any consideration whatsoever: you simply put the code out there under this gratuitous license. Here are some papers that argue the same point. Meet with other like-minded programmers and do a bloc rescission. If your code is re-implemented, sue for infringement and cite the recent Oracle vs Google case amongst others.

"nooo ur wrong, irrevocable, not lawyer, liar, going to get you locked up for practicing law without license, going to get you disbarred, hate this CoC tho, can do nothing tho!!! fuck you!!! LARPR" etc

----

So here we have an actual GPL rescission, to illustrate the point to the linux programmers.

I have submitted code both under closed source and GPL, while I was an employee. A lot of my GPL code (written with the blessing of and while being paid by my employer) is still being used years later.

Let me make it simple. If you decided after submitting code with a particular licencse you want to change your mind that is your right and priviege. Anything you do after that date falls under the new licence, although if others have submitted code patches under the old license and disagree, you are going to have a messy time. They retain ownership of their contributions and you can't arbitrarily take ownership of everything and screw them out of their code. Like it or not, that's how it works. They still own what they submitted.

Also, if you agreed to a license term in the past, everything you have done up to that point is bound by that license. If you submitted code to Microsoft as a contractor or employee, you are bound to whatever license terms you agreed to when you signed the license contract. I know and accept that code I am writing for my employer is owned by my employer, and even though I wrote it I can't arbitrarily change licence terms now or in the future.

Even if you did not pay for a license, you are still bound by its terms. Open source licenses have been upheld in courts of many countries and even fortune 500 companies respect and abide by them. I know because I have worked for them and we have extensive training on the use and upstream submission of open source code. Woe to any company, even large ones who incorporates GPL source in a closed product and tries to sell it as your own. I have worked for many large tech companies and they all respect the GPL terms.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Software_Foundation,_Inc._v._Cisco_Systems,_Inc.

companies have made a business out of reviewing code bases for open source license compliance. I have used their software on many occasions with company legal departments to review FOSS license compliance.

https://www.blackducksoftware.com/black-duck-home

They would not exist if corporations did not take open source license terms seriously. Whine all you want about it, but this is reality. No, I am not a lawyer but I am certain you are not either from the nonsense you post. And I have worked as a developer in this area so I do know something of what I am talking about. Rescind any time you want, but the code you pushed yesterday is still subject to the old licensing terms that you cannot retroactivly change. And if you have not written 100% of the code, portions of it are still under the old license terms under the other authors alter their licenses as wll. It's out there forever. At whatever license existed at the time of publication. No court will allow you to retroactively change a license or contract.

>I have submitted code both under closed source and GPL, while I was an employee. A lot of my GPL code (written with the blessing of and while being paid by my employer) is still being used years later.

When you are an employee, your code is a "Work for hire", and owned by your employeer. So indeed: You cannot revoke.

(Note: if you were an independent contractor, however, and there was no written transfer, you may still own your code - so think back - it could help you out)

See section 101 and 201 of the copyright act for more details.

Here, Author was not an employee nor an independent contractor. He simply wrote code, and put it out there, the permission to others being the text of the GPL.

He still owns his code. He can rescind the gratuity.

So can thousands of the linux-kernel programmers.

> They retain ownership of their contributions and you can't arbitrarily take ownership of everything and screw them out of their code. Like it or not, that's how it works. They still own what they submitted.

Let me make it simple to you, fuck-face programmer. GPC-Slots 2 was written from scratch by Author.

You understand that.

Later a small amount of code was added for the -2 option (split the reels from the fronts) by another Contributor.

The original code is owned by Author.

The -2 code is owned by Contributor.

Author can and has recinded the license from the Geek Feminists regarding original code.

Author doesn't claim ownership of the small -2 function, never has.

(And it may not have been in the Geek Feminist's forked version).

Author now and forever OWNS the code he wrote. He never transfered it, he never signed it away.

Contributor does not own Author's code. Author does not claim ownership of Contributor's code.

Furthermore, the -2 code and the vast Original code are seperable:

The -2 code is basically a library function. You can easily use it in any other game.

Author did NOT AGREE to any terms.

Author WROTE THE FUCKING PROGRAM FROM __nothing__.

YYYOOOUUU and CONTRIBUTOR and GEEKFEMINISTS and WHOMEVER are the ones who FOLLOW terms regarding Author's code

(and if you do not follow them, it's copyright infringement and you are sued).

Now for the -2 function, the Contributor has not rescinded license for that.

So GeekFeminists can take the -2 function, then build an entire different text mode Casino Game

with it included, and that function will make it easy to put on one of those IGT dual displays

(reels inback) you see in casinos.

And yes, I AM a Lawyer, weather you want to believe it or not. You DO NOT know the law.

1) Author owns his code. GPC-Slots 2 was written from scratch by Author. Author was not an employee work-for-hire. He owns his code you fucking wageslave white boy piece of filth.

2) Contributors to the linux kernel who own their copyrights (many thousands) _CAN_ revoke the licenses to use the code they wrote. They still own that property. They licensed it, they did not transfer it.

3) There is NO contract. This is a GRATUITOUS LICENSE. "Hey you can use my property for... nothing!". Gratuitous licenses are revocable at the will of the grantor.

The fact is a gratuitous license is revocable by the grantor.

That is the law.

Defeat the argument?

Saying "I don't trust the source" is not a defeat.

Here's some other programmers for you, maybe you'll trust them:

>Well, except that gratuitous licenses are (irrespective of their surface terms) revocable at will. Promissory estoppel may mitigate, in some way, the effect of such revocation against people who took action in reliance on a promise of nob-revocation before or without knowledge of the subsequent revocation, but it is far from clear that the Free version will always be free; license terms don't override the governing law.

THERE IS NO FUCKING DEAL. YOU DID NOTHING ON YOUR END.

>>1019040

Second response:

You're just a fucking moron.

The case you cited enforced the preliminary writing that said "chose gpl or pay us" as the contract, on the Biz website. It enforced it against the licensee. That preliminary writing: which itself is a offer to do business which the licensee accepted. And then the licensee violated BOTH that preliminary writing (the contract) AND the GPL (because why not go 2 for 2).

That is wholly different where the GPL stands alone, no offer to do business, no preliminary writing to accept.

Secondly it is the _LICENSEE that is being penalized here. The LICENSEE does NOT have ANY rights to the software absent the Owner's permission.

The owner is NOT bound by the terms of the license. He EXTENDS the terms.

It's his FUCKING property. He is saying: here's how you can use my stuff for free.

No consideration there.

Now, if you he allows you to PAY him, then you can say "oh we made a K, so we're mutually bound, since he got his money (consideration)".

In the cited case the Licensee, when given the option to do business (an offer), decided to accept that offer... and then decided to violate it. He neither payed the commercial amount, nor abided by the GPL: which were the options the biz gave. So he could be found liable for contract damages under the preliminary writing (pay us), or Copyright violation damages under the GPL.

Understand you FUCKING retard?

>p46 "As long as the project continues to honor the terms of the licenses under which it recieved contributions, the licenses continue in effect. There is one important caveat: Even a perpetual license can be revoked. See the discussion of bare licenses and contracts in Chapter 4"

--Lawrence Rosen

>p56 "A third problem with bare licenses is that they may be revocable by the licensor. Specifically, /a license not coupled with an interest may be revoked./ The term /interest/ in this context usually means the payment of some royalty or license fee, but there are other more complicated ways to satisfy the interest requirement. For example, a licensee can demonstrate that he or she has paid some consideration-a contract law term not found in copyright or patent law-in order to avoid revocation. Or a licensee may claim that he or she relied on the software licensed under an open source license and now is dependent upon that software, but this contract law concept, called promissory estoppel, is both difficult to prove and unreliable in court tests. (The concepts of /consideration/ and /promissory estoppel/ are explained more fully in the next section.) Unless the courts allow us to apply these contract law principles to a license, we are faced with a bare license that is revocable.

--Lawrence Rosen

>p278 "Notice that in a copyright dispute over a bare license, the plaintiff will almost certainly be the copyright owner. If a licensee were foolish enough to sue to enforce the terms and conditions of the license, the licensor can simply revoke the bare license, thus ending the dispute.

Like a turd that just won't be flushed, this thread keeps floating up to the top.

You might be right about this stuff about rescinding licenses, Mikee. I don't know; I'm not a lawyer. Then again, neither are you, in spite of your protests to the contrary.

Your so-called rescinding of the license to your slots program from the "Geek Feminists" is laughable, though. As far as I can tell, they're not distributing your code anymore, and they haven't for years. The way in which you think you've informed them of your rescission (sperging out on various pseudonymous and anonymous fora) is truly cringeworthy. I'd be surprised if any of them had even heard of the supposed rescission.

Even if they had heard, and even if they were still hosting it, their most likely response would be to shrug and rm -rf your code. Because they think you have a case? No, because deleting the code would be simpler than responding to a lawsuit, and because they don't actually care about your code. They were only ever hosting it as a joke, Mikee. Granted, women aren't funny, so it wasn't a good joke, but the point is that they never took it seriously. So, even if they were still hosting your code (but I don't think they are) and even if they had heard of your rescinding the license (but I don't think they have), they would likely comply, which would prove nothing but that they don't want to deal with you. That tells us nothing useful, because nobody wants to deal with you, not even most of the people here, who have a high tolerance for shenanigans.

Whatever the merits of your legal claims, almost nobody is going to take you seriously because of the way you conduct yourself. Is that fair? Perhaps not. But it's reality. The merits (or lack thereof) of your legal claims are separate from the fact that you shit up every place you go with insane rambling, spamming the same quotes and text over and over, and going off on tangents about fucking little girls. But most people--including most Linux kernel contributors who might otherwise be sympathetic to your perspective and might hate the CoC--are going to be so repulsed by you that they won't have any interest in hearing what you have to say.

Most white men worship women, what else is new. If they are repulsed by the thought of marrying cute young girls, and attracted to the though of being dominated by a orange woman and her police state, the one solace we can have is that they will be extinct soon enough.

>The last time a revocation of a GPL licensed work happened, it was a blanket-world-wide revocation (differing from this revocation from a small number of people) and the distros DID stop distributing the affected piece of software.

Which is basically revoking the contract only to specific offerees. As long as that is communicated the same way the offer was made originally, there shouldn't be too much of an issue, ASSUMING consideration wasn't provided in some implied way, such as through developing the software and the grantor allowing that development to modify their product.

What happens when the person, who developed the software that contributed to this product, revokes his GPL though?

That would mean there are problems inherent in GPL as a thing entirely, largely due to the lack of certainty of what the product is and who contributed to it.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

A bare license is simply permission.

When you allow someone to enter your house you are giving them a (bare) license to enter your house. When you tell them to leave you are rescinding that license. You can do so at any time.

Now if they pay you for "I can enter your house for 30 days", then because there is consideration, and a contract, you cannot then reneg on that term.

> >I CAN RESCIND IT AT ANY TIME.

You just agreed that we are not in a contract, how can you now declare that I cannot rescind the license. Please explain you reasoning

Groklaw is wrong, and has been WRONG for 10 years. It is written by a paralegal named PJ. I am a licensed attorney. PJ simply read the rules regarding commercial copyright license contracts and applied that to opensource, which is an incorrect application. The "rule" relies on the fact that the commercial licensees paid good consideration for the terms they had purchased. THAT is why the commercial licenses are irrevocable outside of the contract terms.

The same is _NOT_ true with gratis licenses for which you have given _NOTHING_

(There is no contract)

A license, absent an attached interest is revocable. _Regardless_ of the "terms".

(And no, "obeying the license" is not good consideration: you cannot use the fact that you will not violate copyright law as "consideration" for a contract: it is a preexisting duty. You have no right to use, modify, distribute the work without the owners permission: the permission that flows from him to you, memorialized in the license text. Permission that is revocable (it is not a transfer of rights))

But don't take it from me. Take it from some published authors on the subject (who are also attorneys):

Sorry, they published that "clarification" after I raised the issue, and their "clarification" is bullshit.

Guess what: The FSF doesn't make the law.

Quick rundown:

Section 4 of the GPLv2 states "parties who have received..."

The "you" here is the licensee, it is not the grantor (See Section 0 of the GPLv2 "Each licensee is addressed as "you". "). It is not applicable against the grantor of the license: it is a rule the licensee has to abide by, set by the grantor, in-order to have permission to modify or create derivative works at all.

About the printer driver case: The contract in that case is the preliminary writing, the offer to do business ("pay us, or alternatively follow the GPL"). The acceptance of that contract by following the terms of that preliminary writing (choosing the GPL instead of paying). That is why both contract and damages under copyright are available. Damages for the contract portion ("pay us"), or damages for violating the GPL license.

The parties later settled out of court. The key is that the businesses offer created two alternative means of acceptance of it's offer to do business: pay for the commercial license, or follow the GPL. So the court allowed the biz to recover the lost profit.

I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above on the infringing web pages is not authorized by the copyright owner, or its agent, or the law. I have taken fair use into consideration.

I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner, or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

:

As you may know, In the United States; a license, absent an attached interest, is revocable.

A "John Doe" had his non-exclusive license regarding the game "GPC-Slots2" terminated by the copyright owner (me: MikeeUSA).

The copyright owner may do this as-of-right, unless there is an attached interest (ie: unless the licensee paid good consideration for the license).

The "John Doe" then proceeded to belligerently upload a copy of "GPC-Slots2" to your host, GitHub.

This violated Author's (my) copyright, since "John Doe"'s gratuitous bare license had been terminated by the copyright holder (me).

The "John Doe" then proceeded to modify my work, which again violated my copyright since I had previously revoked his license.

The license flows from me, the copyright owner, not any text. It is permission to use, redistribute, modify, etc. Instructions on how to use my property.

When such permission is not supported by any consideration, it may be rescinded by the owner, at his will.

(/Regardless/ of the "terms". "Terms" are only enforceable against the grantor if the licensee has paid consideration for them, essentially, under US law.)

I have done so.

I reiterated to the "John Doe" that his license had been terminated.

"John Doe" then informed me that I "can't do that". I tried to explain to him US law.

"John Doe" declared that he did not care and would keep the violating work up, in defiance of me.

(IE: he would "pirate" it)

He then cited works from a discredited paralegal while I cited published works by lawyers studied in their field.

(Note: I make no claim to PERL, the color ansi library, any supporting libraries, or the -2 split screen function. My copyright covers the game code of GPC-Slots2. I (MikeeUSA) am the original author of the work and never signed over copyright to the work.)

(Note: "obeying the terms" (obeying the copyright holders instructions regarding the use of his property) is not consideration: it is a preexisting legal duty: outside of the "terms" there is no right for the licensee to copy, modify, make derivative works, distribute, distribute derivative works)

[Additionally "John Doe" registered a fraudulent account under my long-held non-de-gurre, adding a Code of Conduct ("CoC"), something I would never do (being opposed to "CoC" for gratis projects on principal)]

I now have no choice but to issue a DMCA take-down request, to you, GitHub.

Regrettably;

Contact information:

email: mikeeusa@redchan.it

infringing content: github.com/MikeeUSA/GPC-Slots-2

The material is not authorized by me, the copyright owner of the GPC-Slots2 game code, as I explicitly rescinded the license from the "John Doe", and he acknowledged that I had informed him of such and communicated that he would defy my will regarding my property and copyright.

Everything stated within this above communication is accurate to the best of my knowledge and ability.

Some notices to you, github:

1) Yes I viewed your page at: https://help.github.com/articles/guide-to-submitting-a-dmca-takedown-notice/

2) Yes this is "opensource" code.

3) No that does not matter:

The GPL(any version), being a bare license, is revocable ("retroactively").

Just as any bare license, not supported by an interest, in the US.

The "John Doe" is not in privity of contract with me and has paid me no consideration.

He cannot "bind" me (the grantor) to the terms.

It is his duty to abide by my instructions regarding my property.

I did not transfer my property away, the license is just that: a license (temporary permission, that can be rescinded unless a "term" was indeed "purchased")

It is also his duty to cease all use, modification, distribution of my property at my demand.

I have made such a demand.

4) Yes I will consider taking legal action against you if you do not heed my request.

Cite the paralegal from groklaw, ZDnet, the FSF, and the SFConservancy all you want.

They are wrong on the law and have been wrong for 10 years.

For example, a licensee can demonstrate that he or she has paid some consideration-a contract law term not found in copyright or patent law-in order to avoid revocation. Or a licensee may claim that he or she relied on the software licensed under an open source license and now is dependent upon that software, but this contract law concept, called promissory estoppel, is both difficult to prove and unreliable in court tests.

It doesn't matter, LARPer.

A lawyer would know that a DMCA takedown request is not law either, in fact its purpose is to keep things outside a courtroom (at least as far as the host is concerned).

GitHub has a DMCA policy, which you completely ignored of course.

If you had actually sent them a DMCA (and you have not), and decided to drag them to court over their refusal to comply, they would have an easy time showing how you didn't bother making a valid claim which included the required information to verify it met the minimum requirements they ask for.

You're not even smart enough to read through the guidelines to see how easily you could game them, kys fake lawyer.

The license does not flow from the piece of paper. It comes from me (the owner).

And I am not giving it to "John Doe" any more. I have rescinded his license. That piece of paper is inoperative. A decoration on a wall. One that will catch him a copyright infringement case.

The GPL recognizes that the license flows from the owner in section 6:

"the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor"

The GPL itself does not make this so, it just recognizes the facts of the matter.

Interesting, even a person with a copyright license /contract/ which pro-ports to be irrevocable, the irrevocable rights are not enforceable against the copyright owner's assignees.

So even an "irrevokable" contract, that you paid for, isn't iron-clad.

(And all we have here with the GPL is an bare license, not even a contract)

>Can't you forfeit your rights to something though? Isn't that what charity is? I can't donate something, even fairly valuable like a car, to a charity then take it back later and say I never got consideration for it.

Yes, this is why the FSF is a 501(c)(3) organization. So that when promise to give something to them (transfer), you cannot later get them back.

It is the "charitable exception" to the default rule in America. If you promise to give a charity something, the courts will enforce that even though there is no consideration. They call this "promissory estopple". It's part of equity (not law). IE: "we won't enforce your lawful right because reasons". Since you can't use self-help anymore, the courts are your only enforcement options so they got you.

It's so that heirs can be deftly disinherited and thrown out on the street. Which is the American way. (otherwise they could contest the gifts etc)

In the case of Linux, such transfers have not taken place.

(and, ofcourse, in our little analogue of linux legal situation here)

The linux kernel programmers just kept their copyrights and only license the code out.

This is not what the FSF wanted to happen, because it is not a stable legal situation. Linus did not care. Everyone else followed suit. Opensource exploded.

It's not that it doesn't happen here, it's that users are generally more responsive and will move to an alternate chan or board if things get too shitty. While redditors, if they even notice, won't do much. Any complainers are quickly banned and have their posts removed. In a way, imageboards are much more personal in how each anon can communicate directly with everyone else, while in more structured forums like reddit the conversation is for more ordered by hierarchy and direct interaction between users is not as common as "community-wide" interactions. But the "community" is very carefully curated and directed from the top down.

Im not the guy you are replying to but it could be that the licensor is no longer happy with the arrangement.

Since you didnt pay anything for the license, you were just using it because of their good will, you have no rights to anything.

Thats how it works in most business situations. If coke was crazy enough to allow me to use the word coke on my drink for ten years for free, and then I decide to make my drink container in to a massive penis, and they rescinded the license, I would have no rights based on how long I used the name.

DMCA takedown notice-GPCSlots2

Please provide a detailed description of the original copyrighted work that has allegedly been infringed. If possible, include a URL to where it is posted online.

GPC-Slots 2 is a text-mode casino game I created. It includes 5 slot machines, 3 table games (Sic Bo, Craps, and 2 variations of the little wheel), plus Russian Roulette and a stock market.

You can enjoy it from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gpcslots2/

*What files should be taken down? Please provide URLs for each file, or if the entire repository, the repository's URL:**

http://github.com/MikeeUSA/GPC-Slots-2

Have you searched for any forks of the allegedly infringing files or repositories? Each fork is a distinct repository and must be identified separately if you believe it is infringing and wish to have it taken down.

Yes, they are also on other platforms, all uploaded by the "John Doe"

Is the work licensed under an open source license? If so, which open source license? Are the allegedly infringing files being used under the open source license, or are they in violation of the license?

Yes. The GPL. However I had revoked the "John Doe"'s license. The license, in this instance, being a bare license.

A license without an interest attached is revocable, in the USA.

The "John Doe" was not in privity of contract with me, and had not paid me anything for the work.

It was licensed to him under a bare license, which had then been rescinded.

He thus had, and does not have, any permission to use, modify, distribute, nor make derivative works of the aforementioned work.

Remeber: the license comes from me, the Copyright owner. Not from any document or record: that is simply a memorandum of the terms.

I have chosen to revoke the "John Doe"'s license, and not issue any to him further. He has been informed of this.

His actions there-after and at current are infringing.

What would be the best solution for the alleged infringement? Are there specific changes the other person can make other than removal?

The only solution that I will accept is you acquiescing to my demand of removal.

Do you have the alleged infringer's contact information? If so, please provide it:

No. You can ask him for it here: 8ch.net/tech/res/1018729.html

You can also contact the "John Doe" through the email he registered with you. Don't play dumb.

Please confirm that you have you have read our Guide to Submitting a DMCA Takedown Notice: https://help.github.com/articles/guide-to-submitting-a-dmca-takedown-notice/

I really do not give half a damn about your guide. It is patronizing and moronic, it sounds as if it were written by a woman, perhaps a paralegal.

The fact of the matter is that a bare license is revocable by the grantor.

To achieve an irrevocable license one must generally enter into a copyright license contract with the licensor, supported by good consideration.

"Obeying the license" is not good consideration as it is a pre-existing legal duty.

So that we can get back to you, please provide either your telephone number or physical address:

Contact me at mikeeusa@redchan.it

I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above on the infringing web pages is not authorized by the copyright owner, or its agent, or the law. I have taken fair use into consideration.

I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner, or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Hi,

We have received a DMCA complaint regarding content that is under your control. We’ve included the entire DMCA request below:
[…]
If you believe you are not infringing you have the ability to file a counter-notice as per DMCA. A counter complaint requires:

Your name
Your address
Your email address
A digital signature

And statement under penalty of perjury that you have "a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled."

If we do not receive a counter-notice within 48 hours, your account will be disabled and the content in question removed.

The issue was never that Mikee wasn't actually submitting these requests. It's that, even if the entities in question comply, it means absolutely nothing for the larger issue of Linux contributors trying to rescind the license for their code. The Linux Foundation (and Redhat, et al.) have deep pockets and Linux is an important project. Mikee's code, on the other hand, is irrelevant, and "John Doe" is some internet rando. Yeah, GitLab isn't going to engage in an expensive court battle to defend the GPL. They're going to remove Mikee's little casino program and go on with their day.

--Lawrence Rosen

>p56 "A third problem with bare licenses is that they may be revocable by the licensor. Specifically, /a license not coupled with an interest may be revoked./ The term /interest/ in this context usually means the payment of some royalty or license fee, but there are other more complicated ways to satisfy the interest requirement. For example, a licensee can demonstrate that he or she has paid some consideration-a contract law term not found in copyright or patent law-in order to avoid revocation. Or a licensee may claim that he or she relied on the software licensed under an open source license and now is dependent upon that software, but this contract law concept, called promissory estoppel, is both difficult to prove and unreliable in court tests. (The concepts of /consideration/ and /promissory estoppel/ are explained more fully in the next section.) Unless the courts allow us to apply these contract law principles to a license, we are faced with a bare license that is revocable.

--Lawrence Rosen

>p278 "Notice that in a copyright dispute over a bare license, the plaintiff will almost certainly be the copyright owner.

> Jacobsen v. Katzer.

Appelate court ruled that the Artistic License was a Copyright License, _Overuled_ the lowercourt's opinion that the only damages available for the AL were contract damages. Now licensor can get copyright damages instead.

How does this hurt me, DIPSHIT? Oh, are you relying on the non-binding DICTA earlier in the case? SHOWS WHAT A FUCKING RETARD YOU ARE.

The ruling helps me. The court decided that the AL was a copyright license, overruling the "we have a contract here" ruling of the lower court. If the court found it was a contract then only contract damages would be awarded, as is their practice.

Artifex case involves a preliminary offer to do business where the company allows two means of acceptance of the offer: Pay for the commercial license, accept the GPL.

Not the GPL standing alone.

Both of these cases are cases where a licensee violates the license, and the court allows the licensor to recover.

Completely unrelated to a situation where the licensor revokes a completely gratis license and you FUCKING pieces of shit feel that you can punish the licensor for doing so.

> that taught you that licenses require consideration to be irrevocable.

It's very basic law of licenses, you fucking moron.

Your only other option is to beg the court under equity not to enforce the owner's legal right. Which, is the SFLC's game plan.

The GPL itself is NOT a contract.

>If you really are an attorney, I want to know who did your character and fitness interview. Man, did that guy fuck up.

Tell me how so, dipshit. It's you who seem to be unaware that licenses are revocable, that obeying a pre-existing legal duty is insufficient for consideration, that a non-exclusive license is NEVER a transfer of rights.

You just assume that because commercial copyright licenses are irrevocable outside of their terms that gratis ones are too. Same mistake PJ the paralegal made.

>But no, you need to keep trying to convince attorneys that licenses are irrevocable

Nope, informing the lay people that gratis licenses /are/ revocable.

>and little girls are capable of consent

YHWH doesn't require consent. See Devarim chapter 22, verse 28 (key words: taphas, na'ar (hebrew), padia (greek Septuagint), puella (latin vulgate)). I know it conflicts with your western religion, but hopefully the muslims will completely destroy and dismantle it so there is no record left of your western religion ever existing on this earth.

>and adult women can't be allowed near software.

The adult women infiltrate gratis projects, then rule over the men who actually built the project from the ground up. They are entryists and ENEMIES. They do this to every single hobby men build into a science or engineering field. I can't really say all women though, WHITE women.

>I've got friends at the SFC

Does that include that baby-faced faggot B.Kuhn who isn't even a lawyer and then suddenly learned one year that, if he was going to run a legal consulting firm, he'd better hire a lawyer instead of playing one... and then learned that a lawyer cannot be below lay persons in such a firm, so he made the woman the head of the place and pretends it was all for women's empowerment, thinking that no one knows the bar rules and can see through his bullshit? Is that the Software Freedom Conservancy's who's "clarification" I debunked within 5 hours of them posting? The one that ignores section 0 of the GPLv2 which defines "you" as the licensees (not the grantor) and falsely attempts to convince readers that section 4 is a "no revocation" clause when it is simply a clarification that if an upstream licensee loses his license through automatic rescission, the downstream licensees do not automatically suffer the same fate. That SFC? The one that "advises" its clients to "wait it out" so they can lose their standing via the statute of limitations running (Great advice B.Kuhn).

Yea, a bunch of fucking retards who basically commit legal malpractice against their clients as a "career". But you get what you pay for (and that also goes for licenses)

Alright, you know what? I'm tired of this shit spewing from you every waking hour of the day. Yes I am. So here's my response to your post:

"GPL is revocable" == terrorism. You learn something new every day.

1.) Terrorism is the use of terror to cause mass panic or fear. You're not a terrorist, but you are insane and by the looks of it, too far gone to try to get back. 2.) I think your far-negative comment karma and every commenter in your posts now agree that at this point, nobody even cares about whatever your original goal was. You've posted on dozens of subreddits the exact same fucking thing:


 No.1027092

>"Not so. The GNU GPL, which is attached to the complaint,provides that the

Ghostscript user agrees to its terms if the user does not obtain a commercial

license" (Artifex v. Hancom, Case No.16-cv-06982-JSC, page 4 line 17)

This is false on its face.

The GNU GPL contains no such language.

The /preliminary writing/ that Artifex (the printer driver company) wrote up

includes such language. The court here is conflating "The GNU GPL" with the

preliminary writing. It is an error on the courts case. A typo by the intern

who drafted the decision perhaps.

-----

lawnmower: when you allow someone to use your lawnmower for an

indefinite period of time, for nothing (a revocable-at-will bare license)

You are allowing licensee to :posess and :use the lawnmower.

(Perhaps with an instruction that he not modify or break the lawnmower.)

For: nothing

Most of the rights a property owner regarding the lawnmower.

The lawnmower license is revocable at will. Whenever you want it back,

for whatever reason. Lawnmower licensee has given you nothing for this

allowance, he can not hold you to any terms.

lawnmower.c : when you allow someone lawnmower.c under the GPL license

for an indefintite period of time, for nothing.

You are allowing licensee to :use :copy :distribute :make derivative works

and :distribute derivative works

(Perhaps with an instruction that distributed derivative works, are to

not modify or break the license)

The rights of a copyright owner regarding the lawnmower.c

In both cases you have allowed the licensee most, if not all, of the

interests of the copyright owner.

The lawnmower.c license is revocable at will for the same reason

lawnmower is. Lawnmower licensee has given you nothing for this

allowance, he can not hold you to any terms.

-----

In the Artifex case there were two roads that the violator could have

gone down:

1) He had acceppted the Offer and simply did not pay the consideration

demanded by the offer.

2) He had rejected the Offer regarding the commercial license, this is

why he did not pay the consideration demanded.

If 1) The remedy is under state-law contract: contract damages

If 2) The remedy is under Copyright.

Why 2? Why is 2 also not state-law contract?

Because under route 2 there is no contract.

In route 2 the only method of legally using the printer drivers is to

obey the license given: the GPL.

Following a pre-existing duty is /not/ valid consideration.

Thus under route 2 there is no contract between Offeror and Violator;

there is only a bare copyright license.

Thus the only option there is to allow either No recovery or Copyright

Damages.

The court took this into consideration and allowed the Copyright

holder to chose: Accept that Violator simply failed to pay his

consideration for route 1, and the remedy is the price of the

commercial copyright license contract, or 2) accept that the Violator

did not accept the Offer and was operating under the bare license,

Violated it, and thus the remedy is in Copyright and not

state-contract law.

GPC-Slots 2 was not exclusivly licensed to you, it was put out under a non-exclusive license.

The work is licensed from Copyright holder to Licensee.

It is not licensed from piece of paper to licensee.

Once the Copyright owner informs Licensee that his license has been revoked: that is that his permission to use the property has been ended, the licensee now has notice. The licensee is no-longer a licensee and has no right to redistribute, modify, use, make derivative works of, distribute derivative works of, the work.

Daily reminder that Mikee's antics prove nothing about the revocability of the GPL, only that some third parties (like GitLab) have no interest in going to court against a deranged pervert over an irrelevant Perl script.

Why does it have GPLv3 if original code distributed under GPLv2 and author didn't change the license?


 No.1027255

GPC-Slots 2 is GPLv2+

>So Sue me to find out if any contracts I did while I had the license still stand after the termination or not.

Since when did I revoke the license of the other licensees?

I revoked it from YOU.

I could chose to revoke it from them (whomever they are), but have not as-of-yet.

Then they might sue YOU for that 0.01 cent. The contract is between you and them.

So bitlab is pozzed too, and github is the only sane hosting service? Microsoft based and redpilled, as usual

Tell me, how does this have anything to do with IBM? Linux gaming? It's a 10 year old casino project that nobody uses, and if anything, it's you who is Chicken Little here, making a mountain out of a molehill because you can't stand being wrong.

You're a pedophile who can't stand being wrong and insults everyone if they try to offer a counterargument, since you're so closed-minded. To quote you:

I HATE that you scum banned men from marrying cute young girls forever ago.

Motherfucker, you're insane, and you're going to learn that today. Not only did you assume that I'm white (I'm not), you also assumed that I'm catholic (I'm not), and that I give a shit about anything you say. You're wrong. You're so wrong that I'm going to make sure that everyone else knows that you're wrong too. In that same post I just referenced, you asked someone for what city/state they lived in. Gee, that seems like the smart thing to do. To give a pedophile keyboard-warrior who gets angry and calls someone a "woman-worshiping white FAGGOTs" my address would only make my day. Fuck off with your less-than-subtle tactics at doxxing people, we can see through it. Btw here's where you're assuming that I'm a catholic white man. For all you know on the internet, I could be the exact opposite, an atheist Latina woman (I'm not though), and let's face it, you'd have responded the same way, finding some way to condescend me and try to hit me where you think it'd hurt.

Wishful thinking on your pro-women's rights pro-women-control-of-opensource (which men built) part? You FUCKING PIECE OF FILTH.

Okay wow. Let's look at the FSF's members. You know, the ones who practically made the GPL that you keep ranting about because you're so insecure and can't handle being wrong on the internet.

Jeanne Rasata, Assistant to the President

Oh wow, look, a woman. I guess she's secretly a man, since there's no way that a woman could have possibly contributed to open source!

Molly de Blanc, Campaigns Manager

Same thing. So many crossdressers on the FSF, must be a trend.

Dana Morgenstein, Outreach & Communications Coordinator

Gee, with a name like "Dana", he must have really wanted to trick us into thinking that there are women on the FSF, and in powerful positions that deal with how the world sees them!

Oh, and the most ironic one of all:

Kat Walsh

Kat Walsh is a copyright, internet policy, and technology lawyer. She was most recently at Creative Commons, where she was one of the drafters of version 4.0 of the CC license suite, and previously worked for the American Library Association in their information technology policy office. Kat came to the free software community through free culture. An early Wikipedian and advocate for free cultural works, she was on the Wikimedia Foundation board of trustees from 2006-2013 (Chair 2012-13), where she advised on strategic, policy, and legal issues, and currently serves on its advisory board. She is also on the board of the Xiph.org Foundation. Kat holds a J.D. from George Mason University School of Law and a B.A. from Stetson University; she is a member of the Virginia State Bar and the US Patent Bar.

With your misogynistic views, of course you forgot that the laywer, the one who would have been most likely to work on the GPL itself is a woman. You're backing a woman's views. How scary. Why don't you contact her if you're having issues with the GPL? I'm sure she'd be happy to help as long as you don't realize just how much a piece of filth you are, a stain on the earth that you've become.

If you claim to be a lawyer, I want to make sure that you're never my lawyer. /u/LtGerome or /u/Vevnicc, if you're ever doing any kind of law in California, let me know. I want to stay as far away from you as I could possibly be (and yes, I know that you're going to try to use the fact that I live in California against me. Go ahead, do your best).
