This is how you stop the CoC

They'll just copy paste the relevant code and call it theirs.
Now you not only have changed nothing in the fight and lost your value in the job market, but you've also given them an excuse to say

But that's a violation of copyright.

>> No.69683709

I'm sorry, you're right.
They're just gonna copy paste the code and refactor all the variables to inclusive terminology before pushing to GitHub, maybe change some line here and there.
Good luck proving that it was your code.

It's over guys, open source was a risky idea from the start, we ruined it by allowing them to be in our circle.

>Nobody cares or should care about copyright violation.
They do and should.
On small personal levels, sure, but at corporate levels it's a pretty big problem as it can cause large losses of money. There's a reason companies tend to target distributors of copyright material instead of the individuals who download it.

Write some code that does the same shit. That's fine. It'll probably be like the original code but as long as it ISN'T the original code it isn't a violation

Fun fact.
This guy made a game about killing roasties etc. It was of deleted from sourceforge. Mike was angry enough to write to esr, stallman etc. In ironic twist some feminist website(which helped take it down) published an archive of Mike's works.

So this guy is an actual creep. Ironically it's people like him who are why they feel a CoC is needed so he's probably just creating a feedback loop.

problem is that your licence is nothing more than some words. You can do what you like, tell someone to stop doing something, to take work down or you'll.... you'll... you'lll spend a shit load of money on enforcing the licence. Money that, unless your licence is protecting something valuable, you just dont have. Would you really divert tens of thousands of dollars from a source of income or a bank account, to protect something that isnt a source of revenue? No, because it wouldnt make sense. Litigation is expensive for a reason. they dont want trivial cases clogging up the courts

Well, you can't transfer copyright ownership without a notarized signature, so regardless of what a license says the author retains full ownership of whatever they write. At least in the US.

I do like how the trannies are panicking and trying to host outside of the US and force developers to hand over the copyrights, though. Basically admitting that they're pure evil.

I remember mono being gpl and companies probably spending tons to have it licensed to them under a proprietary licence

The keyword here is exclusive, those companies probably didn't want to deal with the GPL so they asked the copyright owner to offer a different license. You can release your code in multiple licenses.

I will continue to rescind the license from anyone who adds a "Code of
Conduct" anywhere near my code (to "fight sexism".). I wholeheartedly
/support/ sexism, as-long as it is not against men. Since men are now
being assaulted as thanks for their ceaseless decades-long work on
opensource by people who did not put in the time, men should /support
sexism/ by revoking license to their gratis licensed copyrighted code
from any project that adds a "Code of Conduct".

Yes but you have to be an expert in IP rights laws to understand the exact mechanism of how that could be done. It would mean those who try could end up in court - can you imagine judges saying "so you are telling me that if the owner does this it will mean x number of companies going bust and huge swathes of the internet dropping out" and the judge thinks "well I dont care who owns it we cant have that happening"
