    Hi Plugin developer,

    Your plugin s3vault from s3vault.com is a complete ripoff of the code from http://S3MediaVault.com which is a proprietary plugin.

    You’ve even tried to ripoff the domain name, which is similar sounding.

    Our plugin S3MediaVault.com uses proprietary code, and a proprietary tag style – like [s3mv]filename,width,height,autobuffer…[s3mv]

    Our plugin is the only one which includes a special “FILE” tag and a “URL” tag, all of which you can see at http://S3MediaVault.com .

    The main parts of the code have been completely ripped off as it is – barring a “find and replace” of the function name, and some variable names.

    You must take down this plugin immediately from WordPress, as it is not a GPL’ed license. You’ve stolen propriety code from a proprietary plugin, changed a few things around, and have submitted it as GPL, and also are selling it from your web site.

    Please take down your site s3vault.com too. You have 48 hours to do so, after which you will hear from our lawyers.

    You are also selling it commercially, and the damages we will be claiming will be very severe.

    Do the sensible thing and remove this plugin from WordPress.org as well as from your own other sites.

    I also implore the WordPress moderators here to remove this plugin from the repository.
