Copyright Violation

That was today’s Bad Manners winner email subject. I almost thought this was SPAM until I noticed another 20 developers got this senseless email.

At least I know how this person got my email address. I am kind of amused but at the same time I am wondering what on earth a UserFriendly. comic plugin is.

Here’s the marvel of fud and very intimate piece of email I got today:

From: Michael Jensen <>
Subject: Copyright Violation

I thought you might like to know that you are in
violation of copyright laws with your
UserFriendly. comic plugin. Userfriendly is copyrighted
and any use other than what is authorized in
UserFriendly’s FAQ is against the law. I would
reccomend that you cease and desist use of this plugin
as well remove this plugin from the web.
UserFriendly’s owner/creator has been contacted and
will be contacting you shortly.

Thank you;


I’m guessing it has nothing to do with the friendly Intellectual Property FAQ.
