it claims PDN for itself, and probably sells this, even though i can't find it anywhere. The Other stuff is OpenOffice.org.

I'm starting to think using the MIT lisence for PDN is a bad idea...

Why not just make it freeware with the exeption that you aren't allowed to modify the source?

While I agree that ripping off open source projects is pretty low, I disagree with closing the source. What Rick did with the installer/resources* is sufficient.

open source, even if source code is provided.
[*:3ma162yt]Wouldn't allow porting to other platforms, like mono on linux/mac.
[*:3ma162yt]Rick stated somewhere that he gave the source so people could learn from it and use it.

*If they're using an older version of PDN without the license changes, they can legally copy and sell the resources. The new resources license

The MIT license is also open source. (In fact, it's even more permissive than the GPL.)

Nothing is more permissive than GPL.

MIT is, as MIT allows you to edit the source code, while the GPL dosen't allow you to.

I actually gave them permission to do this about 2 years ago -- it was completely within the license rights. However, they are still distributing version 2.72 and I recently asked them to cease doing this. I still get crash logs for "OFFICE One v7 - Paint.NET v2.72". It's rather obnoxious.

Mabye cancel the rights of them using it until they update it?

I don't understand why he gave them permission.

he did not give them permission. they downloaded the source code and claimed it as their own.

edit: thank you for correcting me pyrochild, I missed that bit.

Ok, I recognize that it is rather deplorable.

Wrong: the LGPL is :wink:

independently of their infringement, it's a sure sign of the PdN notoriety! :)

Have you even read both of those licenses? MIT is far more permissive.

sabrown100, please stop posting in questions about copyright law, as you obviously don't know very much about it. :-)
