AutoEmbed for WordPress
License violation in "AutoEmbed" (5 posts)

    Hi,

    This mod uses (and correctly credits) code from my Aeva Media software (http://aeva.noisen.com/)

    However, the license for my software is not GPL compatible. I wasn't even asked for authorization to use it, and obviously the fact that my code isn't GPL'ed didn't prevent this author from using it blindly.

    I see that there in addition to that, are several versions around... -_-

    I had no idea, that part of Autoembed was taken from software that is not GPL compatitble. I got lied to by Corey Wilson and Jason Hines, so I'm just as much as the victim as NaoWe is.

    Anyway I deleted wpautoembed, and got rid of two google code project that contains autoembed. Sorry about that!
