    The site's not even loading for me at the moment but it's a reasonable request on their part from what you said in your post.

    EDIT: Finally loaded. As I'd guessed, it has to do with the HomebreWare and related projects. Copypasta time:

    I might be mistaken but it sounds like you didn't even take a read on what it was about.

    they can complain if they want its just not legally binding they are ASKING people to stop putting it in packs and when you get something for nothing you should do what they ask its only fair because if they get pissed off they might refuse to update their software

    They are not complaining about other people using their software.

    They are complaining about scammer sites trying to make a quick buck by linking to premade packs on /other/ people filehosts. :/

    They could care less who actually uses the twilight hack and for what...

    EDIT: took too long to post this lol

    *sigh* all im saying is that if they put out the tp hack under G fucking PL then they would have no right to argue against people including it in software packs. I HAVE NO F'IN IDEA if its under GPL or not. if YOU do not know what GPL is then google IT!! and yes, they do have a right to request people to pull it from there software packs.

    please, flame me with dignity and intelligence...im sick of idiots responding back with no f'in clue...fuck it, might as well go back to IRC where people are somewhat civilized

    this is not licensed under GPL, so your argue/debate fail before it can even start
    source is not public and distribution is unauthorized without author agreement, period

    Dumbfuck. You can't sell something that is GPL'd. That's what they are pissed off about. Plus it isn't under the GPL anyway.

    Granted, but they don't want their software to be sold in illegal packages.
    And, thanks to the Authors' rights law, at least in Italy, they can block the selling, because they have created the software.
    Even if they sold the source, put under GPL or whatever, they CAN put limits on the use of the software.

    An example: You create a software that is able to autopilot a plane. Your company want to sell it to the Airforce. If you want, you can state that your software should NEVER be used in military planes, mission, etc. And they cannot (legally) use your software.
