Support » Plugin: Attention bar » [Plugin: Attention bar] javascript is copied from foobar

  • i had a look at your attenbar.js file and it is almost an exact copy of my foobar plugin available on code canyon (probably 80% the same with a few additions and variable renames). Why did you remove the copyright credit at the top of the file?

    I think it is only fair that if you copy work from another plugin that you mention that on your page or in your plugin files

  • Indeed this is a blatant copy & paste of the foobar script…

    Please take this up with the plugin author directly rather than posting here.

    How can someone take the exact code and copy & then change it AS WELL ???

    GPL clearly states – Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

    *sigh* That relates to the text of the license – not the software that the license is used with. GPL actually allows anyone to re-use or modify any code.

    And now this discussion needs to take place elsewhere.
