Yes, guenter, I've visited the two pages on SourceForge : Unternet Spirit and GhostFox, I was thinking about mailing to Sourceforge to block theses pages as they violate K-Meleon License (GPL) dont forget GhostFox project page too.

Same thing for the text you purpose, don't forget GhostFox Web Browser.

English:
Internet Spirit Web Browser and GhostFox Web browser 1.1.5 , 1.5, 2.0, 3.0, 3.013 ... are K-Meleon 1.1.5 et 1.5 clones.

Eula's licence of Internet Spirit and GhostFox violateviolates K-Meleon's GPL copyrights. Please remove the download or redirect to the original.

French:

Les licences Eula de Internet Spirit et GhostFox violent les droits accordés par la licence GPL de K-Meleon. Veuillez supprimer leur téléchargement ou rediriger vers le site original de K-Meleon.

I think it would be interesting to read the sourceforge conditions. I think we ought to find something about licenses.

About Google, it's possible, but hardest to do:

@kko, I also find this message, and that's why I think it's more important to ask for download sites which allows more important download traffic.

I hope that the person I contacted on ZDnet make something, because CNET is the post important download group, with a lot of sites.

Would it be possible to ask for the provider where are located the Hardy pages ?

Ist das Prozedere so ok?

Original at: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/download.php

English:

Internet Spirit Web Browser 1.1.5 is a K-Meleon 1.1.5 clone.

Internet Spirit's Eula violates K-Meleon's GPL copyrights. Please remove the downlaod or redirect to the original.

German:

Internet Spirit Web Browser 1.1.5 ist ein K-Meleon 1.1.5 Clone.

Internet Spirits Eula bricht K-Meleons GPL Copyright. Bitte entfernen Sie den Download Link oder leiten Sie zum Original um.

Bezug: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?1,84013,84102#msg-84102

I'd suppose something like this:

Internet Spirit Web Browser is a clone of the open source browser K-Meleon (http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/) and is violating both K-Meleon's copyright and license (GPL).
I therefore ask you to remove your download links for Internet Spirit Web Browser or to redirect them to the original product.

Internet Spirit Web Browser ist ein Clone des Open-Source-Browsers K-Meleon (http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/) und verletzt sowohl dessen Copyright als auch Lizenz (GPL).

I am a member of the team of developers K-Meleon, which as you perhaps know is free software under the GPL. This license allows everyone to freely use and modify freely as the software in question.

The sources of K-Meleon are of course available online, and many programmers do not hesitate to change the software to fit what they want. And all this is very good.

In the case of Internet Spirit and GhostFox Web browsers , it would be ok if the author did not violate the terms of the license.

Indeed, the author of the modified code is not required to seek permission from the author of the official version, he must mention the origin of the product, provide sources of the code, and keep the product changed under the same license.

But on all these points, there is flagrant violation of GPL.

These products are located on a website which domain is registered on your system :

www.hardyCreations.com

As mentionned in your conditions, this domain must be blocked.

* Content that infringes or violates any copyright, patent, trademark, service mark, trade name, trade secret, or other intellectual property right of any third party.

So, I ask you to block this domain which is now down, for another reason

Just went ahead and added K-Meleon as "Internet Spirit/K-Meleon" to our site and featured it on our home page which should hopefully help towards the search engine efforts. We've also placed an announcement on our front page to help the cause. Without you guys offering freeware our site wouldn't exist so please accept my thanks for your time and efforts and if I can be of any further assistance please let me know.

For the next looks for free software.

K-Meleon is e.g. featured at Freeware BB. Marko created the post for the benefit of PPL and search engines that know K-Meleon under other names smiling smiley

p.s. thx Marko, especially for Your efforts to promote and distribute free software.

Hope Marko and none here minds that I spammed our Forum a little. If You want anything changed, inform me - I am moderator & can censor it smiling smiley

@alain IMHO we should wait and look on Wedesneday or later what is still found on the top 2 or 3 search engine pages (nationally and internationally).

Then we could translate & use kko's text - it is short and to the point.
And if each does in his home country - it is clear where we look and less work for each.

kko's text once again / best no exact translation but what sounds well for You:

Internet Spirit Web Browser is a clone of the open source browser K-Meleon (http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/) and is violating both K-Meleon's copyright and license (GPL).
I therefore ask you to remove your download links for Internet Spirit Web Browser or to redirect them to the original product. Thank You in advance.

I have just a quick look, and it's not 100%, but perhaps 90%.

But there is no difference. There are a GPL License violations, and it's prohibited.

If this guy, what I don't think, reintroduce what he had removed (copyrights), put the source online, and abandonate Eula for GPL, he will have the law with him.

For now, he is a robber.

@ panzer:
K-Meleon 1.5 installed is size 20 Mb
"Internet Shit" v3.0 is size 50 Mb

As everyone can calculated the difference is 30 Mb of trash. grinning smiley

If 20 Mb of Internet Shit is K-Meleon and his full size is 50 Mb with a simple rule 3 we have the result:

50 -> 100
20 -> X

X=100*20/50

40% of Internet Shit is K-Meleon.

And if 16 Mb are from skins we have that:

50 -> 100
16 -> X

X=100*16/50

32% of Internet Shit are others author's skins for K-Meleon.

In conclusion 40%+32%=72% of work to do Internet Shit isn't made by "hardycreations".

What's really "created" by "hardycopies"?

I was researching this 28% (size 14 Mb) and this that i found:

In main folder there is a difference of 7.5 Mb, by the exe files that include: bigs icons (from Maxthon and Flock), banners (really ugly) and photos from the copier's dumb face in true colors, and some library as mfc71.dll, ...

3 Mb in splash, plugins, sounds, Michael J. Hardy profiles (with history, icon cache and cookies included, you can start to be a copier now! or need you his bookmarks too?)

4 Mb, this is a special mention to NSIS_SkinCrafter_Plugin.dll, who like use a Nsis plugin with this size only to install the files?

Sorry Hardy, but if you are going to copy something at least make a good copy don't do a horrible fat copy.

Without the acrimony and from the affection. tongue sticking out smiley

License is Eula, no source and no reverse enginering.

In the version I have upload, menu toolbars, and settings have been reorganized and no more kmprefs (it seems, but I have test it quickly, and I don't remember which version, because since 17 of july 2008, there is a lot of name or versions)

I compared this Bad Spirit v3.0 (last version) with K-Meleon 1.5 (file by file) and none difference with KM 1.5 in default configuration excepted:

1) As i said Bad Spirit include 46 K-Meleon skins.

2) Include plugins:
Npdsplay.dll (Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Link Library)
npmozax.dll (Mozilla ActiveX control and plugin module)
npwmsdrm.dll (DRM Netscape Plugin)
qsp2ie07103010.dll (Quantum Streaming IE Player) What is this a plugin for IE?
privacy.dll (What do this here?) Flower, flower, flower, ... fuck a mushroom!
System.dll (A Hardy virus?)

3) Sounds, splash and a fat and ugly interface to install/uninstall and SetDefault.exe (only interfaz rest of code is identical to K-Meleon)

4) Our old searchbar.dll kplugin that not works fine in 1.5 (new Tek version is better).

5) Specially importat this two profiles:
1uqjbq65.Michael J. Hardy
Michael's Internet Spirit

(usual profiles, anything interesting)

I don't know how i can browse whitout it! tongue sticking out smiley

Oh! I forgot this include a SetVistaDefault.exe file in main folder.
This is a Nsis executable version of this Brielle Bruns's solution for Vista default browser.

As an anecdote "HardyCopy" include the KM 1.1.5 User Agent strings but some one are in en-US and others in de-DE or de-AT:
This is an perfect example that how NOT DO IT!
useragent1.name", "Firefox 2.0"
useragent2.name", "SeaMonkey 1.1"
useragent1.name", "Firefox 2.0.0.16" (deja vu, name is different but user agent string is the same that FF2 and the useragent number is repeated, but this is in de-DE)
useragent2.name", "MSIE 7.0" (deja vu, deja vu, useragent2 already exist, and remember that this is a Gecko browser not really compatible with IE engine)
useragent3.name", "Opera 9.23" (Ok, he can reach up to 3)
useragent4.name", "SeaMonkey 1.1.11" (again one more repeated UA string but now in de-AT)

Guenter please, save your preference files in a safe place and stop post it in forum for Hardy can copy it. tongue sticking out smiley

Hardy hasn't kept the new version of SearchBar.dll which works tabs, I haven't put it yet online. smiling smiley

TeK version has bugs (0.05) with 1.5 and doesn't work with 1.1.5 (0.06 does)

Poor Hardy, if we don't get him the better ... smiling smiley

Without it, as you explain it, he seems a little under the required level to make a good produce, so, if we don't give gracioulsy the better ...

The copy/developement? of Culo-Fox (Ass-Fox in english) keep hardycopies busy and I guess that he will leave the K-Meleon copied that he named Internet Spirit.

If the autor of the illicit copy were to redress the clone's failure to give credit to K-Meleon HE WOULD STILL HAVE NO RIGHTS to do so.

Having broken the copyright license agreement he is no longer allowed to issue any part of any work that belongs to anyone else in K-Meleon.

This is the tenet of a court case in the USA where the makers of a TI-VO -like product failed to put online the source code of the Linux software it used / uses.

The Freedom Law guys persued them and IIRC the US courts have forbidden the company the right to issue Linux or that code they were using from Linux.

An interesting page about GPL violation on GrokLaw,

I have found this one which explains how a GPL violation can be repaired and how a guy who violates the GPL v2 (is-it the license we use?) can renew the incriminated project.

As you said, it's more complicated for HARDcopY, we must agree before ...

Here are some mails I receive from Download website admins:

Hello Alain -

I remember getting an email from somebody about this "Hardy" character.
It is impossible for me at this point in time to confirm if that was
your earlier email - or if I replied at the time. I can say that we had
disabled at least one copy of Hardy's Internet Spirit, but you know how
listings can be resubmitted under slightly different title or PAD
details that determine whichever site's "unique" trait.

We've disabled two more listings from Hardy. Also, his domain names and
email pattern have been blocked from future submissions at our site.

Your understanding in this matter is appreciated.

Please feel free to keep us in mind if you ever have any new software.

thank you,
Brian Gillingham

Bonsoir Alain Aupeix,

Merci de nous avoir signalé le cas de violation de licence GPL par Internet Spirit.
Après vérification et réflexion, j'ai décidé de supprimer ce navigateur de la logithèque Clubic.

Cordialement.

Dear user,

Thank you for your email. I have investigated this software.
The support site for this software does not appear to be availalbe anymore.
We do not host unsupported software on our site so I have removed 'Internet Spirit' from our listings.
It may take up to 48 hours for the software to propagate out from our listings.

Regards
