Re: License Violation

<< Anyway, I posted that it was a violation of the University's copyright (as
 found in the source files) and the licenses, and that there are possible
 legal repercussions.

 I didn't post this only to Jeremy because I thought the thread might be
 continued regarding how the situation would be handled. >>

I personally always thought that it was more of a moral decision to follow
the license.  I've been told that there is nothing that the CircleMUD
community can do to a violating MUD - though this may be totally wrong.

Being a programmer myself, I tend to understand what others go through -
especially with license problems.  I understand the work that Jeremy and the
rest of the Circle and Diku communities have put in, and I respect that -
therefore, I follow the license agreement, making sure to leave his name on
the login prompt, the help circlemud command in tact, etc.  Unfortunetely, as
shown in the case of Mudgik, we all know that people don't always share

Just my two cents,
