    Hi, im not sure how to report some stolen work to admins so ive created this thread. PVPReset is a plugin i made to go with world edit to reset PVP map , i was going to release this on bukkit but i released it on PMC and MCforums first just to see how it went down. However my work has been copied and pasted (Literally) by


    Here the link to the stolen plugin, i want this copy removed but im not sure how to flag it as copied

    And heres the genuines

    bukkit alpha version:

    PMC : got removed so thats how i actually found out about this copy

    MCForums: [removed]

    Snippet of source Code:

        public void onEnable()
            world = Bukkit.getServer().getWorld("World");
            worldEditPlugin = (WorldEditPlugin)getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("WorldEdit");
            PluginDescriptionFile pdfFile = this.getDescription();
   + "version" + pdfFile.getVersion() + "is now enabled");
            PM = this.getServer().getPluginManager();
            PL = new PlayerListener(this);
        public boolean onCommand(CommandSender sender, Command cmd, String commandLabel, String[] args)
                SetSpawnPlayer = (Player)sender;
                    SpawnLocationSet = true;
                    SetResetSpawnLocation = SetSpawnPlayer.getLocation();
                    int XLocation = SetResetSpawnLocation.getBlockX();
                    int YLocation = SetResetSpawnLocation.getBlockY();
                    int ZLocation = SetResetSpawnLocation.getBlockZ();
                    SetSpawnPlayer.sendMessage(ChatColor.LIGHT_PURPLE + "Set reset spawn location to:" + ChatColor.GREEN + XLocation + "," + YLocation + "," + ZLocation);
                    SetSpawnPlayer.sendMessage("sorry you dont have permission");
                SetResetPlayer = (Player)sender;
                Selection sel = worldEditPlugin.getSelection(SetResetPlayer);
                    if(SpawnLocationSet == true)
                        if(sel != null)
                            Bukkit.broadcastMessage("Map resetting");

    I just looked at it, and I notice two main things:
    • They use the same domain for the package naming (, meaning they're made by the same group of people, or someone made a derivative work where they simply refactored and renamed..
    • The onCommand() method is almost identical, only a few changes exist between the two of them.
    • Many of the variables have the EXACT same name. See:
    PVPResetFFA - lines 24-28
    PlayerReset - lines 18-22

    All projects and posts on BukkitDev have a report button, for future reference.

    I've handled this one. Project deleted. The user also happened to be evading a ban for trying to upload a malicious plugin a few months ago.

    I honestly don't get what they're trying to achieve by uploading someone else's plugin. Kind of reminds me of likes on the forums.

    I made a mod for a online game a while back. spent months working on it the devs of the game even said it could not be done. released it was proud of it. then some [email protected](# goes and takes the code part copies it and just adds new art and claims it as his.... i confronted this person and his response was only stealing art is a crime. its A ok to steal code. i have never looked at artist the same since then nor bothered releasing stuff ever again

    I would say fame? Or he may just tried to make himself looking "good" and then trying to add malicious code again? I have no idea, its just lame to steal someones work
