    Hello all,
    If you are actively involved in anything relating to BoxOfDevs, you would have heard about the latest copyright "infringement". We have found out recently that leet.cc has been taking our plugins from ImagicalMine forums, modifying them, and uploading them to leet servers. Then, they sell the plugins for a profit.

    In the ImagicalMine community, our plugins are free and will stay free forever. This is a warning to all Plugin Developers. They should update their license to a new one that forbids selling a plugin for a profit. NOTE: This is just a suggestion.

    In order to fight this unfavored activity, we will be imposing a restriction (again) on plugin downloads. You must be a registered member of the ImagicalMine forums in order to download plugins, and if anybody is caught giving our plugins to leet.cc, they will be insta-banned, and permanently, along with any ban evasion accounts. We have already banned 3 users for this reason. ​

    I hope you all understand our motives!​

    Thanks,

    Does MIT prevent leet from selling plugins?

    None of the open source licences prevent from selling plugins. In order to do that, you would need a custom licence like BoxofDevs is using now

    Can you stop accusing leet.cc for using free open source software? If you've used open source software for your own profit then you shouldn't be accusing leet.cc.

    Is not for our own profit. None Of our members have received profit from an open source software. Anyone who does, will not be a part of BoxofDevs

    The point of an Open Source software is that anyone can use it free. Leet.cc, as the hosters selling pluginstakes open source plugins, modify them to change API version and author, take all the credits, and sells the plugins from $1 to $10 (ours was $5).
    We did not get anything from that except some sort of lesson.
    Open Source was an utopy and we need to use CC like licenses.

    We could add to the license: "Give BoxOfDevs 50% of the money you earn with this plugin" xD

    Or in the license just say that we now own everything that's in their name.

    The license isn't going to change anything they can just rename the plugin and say it's theirs.

    There's a reason why we call code that is taken from another plugin
    "Stolen code."

    Woah... seems like we have a really big (maybe) problem about this problem...

    To be honest, I've used to use Leet.cc for my MCPE servers, and the results? Nothing. Not interesting. Absolutely boring (Are they too criticize for them?). Because- The plugins... it is totally NOT FREE! O-O

    As you can see, everyone are living in a greedy world. People needs money to live, needs money to do something, that is very important to them, or even for their future career. :cool:

    But... in the legit way only. Leet.cc may need money to do something, because it decides their future. But, they're doing all wrong. How could them... even have the plugins paid?! For MCPE servers?! WHAT THE FREAK?! OMG- :eek:

    I thought paying for the server is enough... now we have to pay for plugins? And- when I've saw this thread, I've lost all my trust on Leet.cc. How could they use our free and open-source plugins, editing them, and... selling them for profit... They must have better way to grow their money ;-;

    Really worried about this... I'm not sure about this well, but I'm sure that our plugins are all protected by a proper license from copiers and stealers after this post. :)

    1st. Please remove all instances of "BoxOfDevs" from there, it would be bad if someone got that confused
    2nd. BoxOfDevs already made its own license which is (no offense) Much better than that
    3rd. In my opinion, and some other miscellaneous devs' opinions, that license is even worse than GNU!
    4th. Thank you for writing a license, though. I am sure that there will be numerous people who would love to use that licence!

    No, leet users can only install plugin that leet offers them, and they have to pay for most of them...
