    This is totally disgusting !
    Someone trying to steal Paul Kirland's (spyblocker) work !

    It's not even out yet, and they've got the nerves to put a version 5.0 on it !

    Notice any similarities ?

            you may recall..or perhaps Spy1 may...that somewhere around a couple of years ago a person accused spyblocker (PauL) of infringment......an Paul responded that nither he nor that person had "invented" the technology.........it was all posted at the spyblocker forum..........so would this also apply to this case?

             copyright infringment certainly is ugly.....I went through one legal battle of my own with someone who tryed to infringe on one of my copyrights........so obviously I am strongly opposed to infringement.

             Mickey..this post is in the form of a "question" because I am wondering if Paul K..has any legal recourse ...according to his past statements....of not having invented the technology.

    Paul didn't hold the technology, true.
    But have you looked at the gif ?  This is only a modified screen of Spyblocker !
    There are many instant messaging programs with same technology, but no one can just copy one, change the name and issue it just like that.
    And yes, he has copyrights rights.  And they have been taken care of.  This Spy Killer will never see the light of day.

           thanks for the reply.....I don't know the legal ins and outs on computer software....so wasn't sure how that worked.

           since I don't use spyblocker I would not know how "look-a-like" these two programs are.

           appreciated your reply

    What was basically done is change the cover of a book and try to present the novel with a new title, just changing the names of the antangonists !
    Or try to get you to go to the movies and see The Titanic , but change movie title to : Vessel lost at Sea !
    Not acceptable, is it ?

    Is it not strange that someone would come out my new program and version 5.0 with it ?...Simply copycat...

    MrBlaze, don't tell further, but we have copyrights on the 0 and 1 which is on which the computers run. Of course 0 and 1 are also symbol for male and female, so for being one of those you owe this patent money as well. You won't get nothing back but the content feeling of being legally something at all.
    And this is not even a quote from my Frog script in the make.
    BTW: patent pending for the letters n and e as most used in the dutch and english languages, so beware.
    I don't think this has anything to do with security and protection at all, btw.

    will thecopy right law is so bad that  im sure if a security app uses the same exact code technoligy as some one elses you can be liable now.

    befor you couldnt good example the im instant messageing utlitys

    the law the way it is the first guy to make one could sue everyone present day for copyright infringement.

    although its insain to file such an act it is possiable due to the way the new law is writen im suprise no one has try to capitlize present day.

    befor you wouldnt had have a case but now it is posiable.

    its like takeing a huge step backwards all those guys that didnt have a case befor do now lol.

    so thats what it has to do with security.

    the new law has  so many lope holes and poorly writen im suprise no one was smart enough to capitlize on it.

    there should be nuts comeing out of the wood work lol=)

    Hey Mickey.  You say Kirkland has copyright(s) so he’s covered – and your analogy is correct.  Any prior remark he may have made concerning the technology is irrelevant.  Would be like challenging someone’s use of electricity because they didn’t invent the technology.  All he has to do is subject both programs to an independent “post-mortem” that concludes the nature of the new program is ostensibly cosmetic – and Kirland owns it and all revenues prior to judgment, plus interest and attorney fees.  Open and shut.  Later, Rickster
