Wesley Wolfe (Wolvereness) showed up on the BukkitDev IRC channel today and talked about the DMCA dispute. He says he has received a letter from Alex Chapman, an intellectual property attorney from the law firm Sheridans who represents Mojang. Link to IRC chat Some highlights: <alureon> Wolvereness: what are you hoping to achieve with the DMCA? <Wolvereness> alureon: I intend to enforce my copyright. <alureon> Wolvereness: right, but why? In all the posts I've read on the forums about people leaving, or legal issues, I haven't really seen the question of what led you to do it. <Wolvereness> alureon: IANAL, but from what I'm aware of, any 'motivation' past that of what I'm legally entitled could be used against me if it came down to a lawsuit. <Wolvereness> alureon: The word "extortion" has already been used in a letter from Mojang to myself, but exercising legal rights cannot be extortion. <Wolvereness> alureon: Wait, no, I phrased that wrong <Wolvereness> alureon: It was in a letter from Mojang's lawyer. <Wolvereness> alureon: I got a letter from Mojang, and a letter from Sheridans (Alex Chapman) <Wolvereness> alureon: I'm still waiting for someone who would rather discuss things with me instead of suggest "prosecuting authorities" (read, as per my lawyer: criminal law) for exercising my legal rights <Wolvereness> alureon: I was actually told not to communicate directly with anyone from Mojang and instead send all communication to their lawyer <Wolvereness> alureon: So, seeing how their lawyer hasn't communicated with me at all, even after forwarding my response to someone I believe was "Grum" harassing me, there's not much to be done on my part. They have my email. <alureon> Wolvereness: I find the fact that nobody pushed for a quick resolution odd, but they must have their reasons.. <Wolvereness> alureon: I did suggest a resolution before filing the takedowns, which is where that quote of Vu Bui's came from (the response). <AdamQpzm> Wolvereness, Was that a suggestion for them to officially allow mc code in cb or something else? <Wolvereness> AdamQpzm: "I hereby demand distribution of CraftBukkit in source and in binary form cease, or the terms of distribution found in the GPL (described later in the email) become met."
