Copied Much? Answered

Today I found one of my knex guns reposted under a different name without permission from me or ever credit given in the instructable.

I posted the original under this license:

   This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. Others can download and redistribute your work just like the by-nc-nd license, but they can also translate, make remixes, and produce new stories based on your work. All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature.

hmmm seems like a breech to me...

here is the original posted by me

here is the other guy's

the only difference is that he stuck on some pointless additions.

below is an image of the original instructable as I found it.


You use internet explorer?  YOU SUCK!!11111!!!


I use explorer, it works just fine.  Google chrome was weird, and firefox is just stupid.

explorer is stupid. iagree chrome is weird but firefox is the best browser ever! you can add 100,000 plus addons to it for free and you can change the look of it without microsoft geting pi$$ed off at you.  just download it and try it evry thing with it is much beter and you can change it to suit your needs.

Because I want add-ons that I never use and just clog up my internet.

Some ad-ons actually speed it up.  For example, adblock makes your internet load faster because it prevents ads from loading onto webpages.

You realy should. you will hate explorer afterwards.

Actually explorer clogs up your internet more than fire fox. just try it and see if it is faster for you, it is for me.

We got a license (licence) breach! Get DOWN!

This happens every now and then, but most people don't make a topic about it.  Just PM an Admin.

If it was unintentional, just let him go.  He's already changed the ible and gave you credit.

How could it be unitentional?  bty, you posted a forum like this about your crossbow....

He's already said he got it from some uncredited pic on youtube.

I see yours in a slide show, I see his with full build instructions.
He says he saw it then worked-out how to build it and added a stock, that seems original enough.
You've got yourself acknowledged, it's not worth saying much more.


I have never been copied, but that is lame....
