DMCA Claim Over GPL Non-Compliance Shuts Off Minecraft Plug-Ins

Lehk228 Re:Bass Ackward (354 comments)

they have not integrated bukkit/craftbukkit into their products. his DMCA takedown is based on the GPL violation that has existed all along because craftbukkit could never have been legally GPL because it is built off essentially pirated decompiled mojang minecraft server code.

mojang has always looked the other way with server mod software working this way even before they bought rights to the bukkit name and hired some of the top devs (not including wolverness hence his butthurt)

DMCA Claim Over GPL Non-Compliance Shuts Off Minecraft Plug-Ins

Lehk228 Re: What the heck? (354 comments)

craftbukkit (the server software) has always depended on illegally decompiled minecraft server code in order to function as a mod API for the minecraft server. so technically this makes craftbukkit not in compliance with it's own GPL licensing because it uses propritary code which cannot be released under the GPL

one of the top contributors, who knew all along that he was working on a project that was legally grey area, got butthurt and DMCA'd his own contributions.

this is how disputes over large projects between large organizations are almost always handled, nobody takes their ball and goes home just because something is disputed unless one or both organizations have a serious cult of personality issue.

Apple Denies Systems Breach In Photo Leak

Lehk228 Re:At the risk of blaming the victim... (311 comments)

Working systems are available, but fools want their iThing or $20 droid and then act all surprised when their genitals end up on 4chan. It's not a new problem when was it Paris hilton's sidekick got hacked again?

if you buy trash with security ranging from "fuck it we have none" to "well I guess we tried" because it's ooh shiney let's play flappy bird that is a choice with consequences.

not "the woman" it's Anita Sarkeesian, a professional scammer we are talking about. How much money did she get from that kickstarter? how much has she delivered?

California DMV Told Google Cars Still Need Steering Wheels

Lehk228 Re:Not surprising (506 comments)

it won't take long between commercial introduction of SDCs and the first outright ban on human operation of a motor vehicle.

once that happens the massive difference in injuries, deaths and property loss will lead to bans on human driving to be passed in virtually all jurisdictions.

Slashdot Asks: How Prepared Are You For an Earthquake?

Lehk228 Re:Most are ill-prepared (191 comments)

MREs are not survival rations they are combat rations. a few cases of refried beans and corn will be much cheaper and store far more days of fuel in a smaller space for a longer amount of time. and you can rotate your supply as you use them so they don't just sit there until they expire
