Hi, all:

Welcome back to the re-re-re-re-designed forum! Hope you enjoy the new layout. As usual, report all bugs and other issues in the right section.

As for our MC server, there's currently a HUGE shitstorm surrounding the legality of Bukkit, Craftbukkit, and all of its subsidiary software. Read more here:

DMCA notice issued by a coder regarding mixing of GPL and LGPL codes: http://dl.bukkit.org/dmca/notification.txt

Subject: [SL] [abuse-google] Copyright

My name is Wesley Wolfe. A site hosted on an IP address owned by Multiplay
(ip redacted) is infringing on my software copyright by the distribution
of a software known as CraftBukkit.

Original content can be found at

https://github.com/Wolvereness/Bukkit-Bleeding/commits?author=Wolvereness

https://github.com/Wolvereness/Bukkit-Bleeding/commit/0a0fee8be25bf8a732abff2d66a89a64614b6327

and the appropriate license for previously mentioned content can be found at


https://github.com/Wolvereness/Bukk...e59275330f83b994e199c76f6abd41ee7/LICENCE.txt

The provided license requires the use of included or linking code to
provide the original source under the GNU GPL license version 3, or any
later version. An official notice has been sent to Mojang AB, whereas the
Chief Operating Officer, Vu Bui, responded with the clear text:

Mojang has not authorized the inclusion of any of its proprietary
Minecraft software (including its Minecraft Server software) within the
Bukkit project to be included in or made subject to any GPL or LGPL
license, or indeed any other open source license

As the Minecraft Server software is included in CraftBukkit, and the
original code has not been provided or its use authorized, this is a
violation of my copyright. I have a good faith belief the distribution of
CraftBukkit includes content of which the distribution is not authorized by
the copyright owner, it's agent, or the law.

Pages including infringing content:
http://dl.bukkit.org/ - links to:
http://dl.bukkit.org/latest-rb/craftbukkit.jar
http://dl.bukkit.org/latest-beta/craftbukkit-beta.jar
http://dl.bukkit.org/downloads/craftbukkit/ - links to 45 pages, with
infringing content beginning on craftbukkit build #1597 and currently
ending at craftbukkit build #3115, but please allow me not to enumerate
them all
http://dl.bukkit.org/downloads/craftbukkit/view/00703_1.1-R1/ (the
first infringing build)

I have a good faith belief that the above information is accurate and that
I am the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's
behalf.

Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512(c)), the
above mentioned pages need to be expeditiously removed or access-of
disabled.

What does this mean? Until the DMCA is lifted, all future MC updates will be unsupported unless Mojang either 1. completely open-sources the Bukkit project or 2. eminent-domain or 3. rewrite from scratch. How long will this take? Who gives a f---.

So until then, DINO-D-DAY HERE WE COME!

Mojang can issue a counter-DMCA notice notice and have the items restored. If that's the case, it's up to Wolf to decide whether he actually wants to take this issue to court. If he does, Mojang will lose.

Also, I fixed the forum list so the display's nice again. I should now make it that every time you refresh a different background shows.
