SolidCoin (https://github.com/solidcoin/solidcoin/) is infringing on my copyright of code originally contributed to Bitcoin (https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/) under the MIT license. The specific substantial code I hold the copyright to appears in at least wallet.cpp in both Bitcoin and SolidCoin, in the method CWallet::SelectCoinsMinConf. I licensed this code under the MIT license, and SolidCoin has stripped my copyright and terms from all the code, in violation of this license.

The takedown notice was sent by tekkub.

Teaches him right, there actually was a thread about this before.

I pointed this out to King RealScam over two months ago.

BTW ScamCoin is also in violation of Berkeley DB license from Oracle.  While I doubt Oracle will be enforcing their claim a crypto-currency based on pirated and stolen software has a very shaky foundation.

Generally most people using open source software aren't stupid enough to violate the license.  I mean the MIT license is trivial to follow and yet King RealScam fucked it up because he dishonestly wanted to pass ScamCoin off as an original creation.

This is part of Luke Dash Jr's latest conquest.
He had made threats in BTC-e chat, in regards to having Solidcoin taken down due to license violations and the fact that Realsolid used some of his (Dash's) code to create Solidcoin without maintaining the license.

apperently it was a person called tekkub who sent the takedown notice.

EDIT: it seems that luke-jr did file the complaint.

It doesn't matter who's name is attached to the official notice.
This could have happened ages ago, but only as of late has Doosh-Jr been spouting off about it.

Yes, I filed the DMCA takedown. If you have a problem with that, that's your problem for supporting plagerism and copyright infringement. The MIT license is not very hard to comply with. It has a single requirement: maintain the copyright line(s) and license text as-is. It is impossible to "accidentally" violate as RealSolid is supposedly claiming.

CoinHunter/RealSolid had to purposely remove those copyright notices. He actually put work into removing those lines of text to violate the license. Why would anyone do that? What an idiot.

He wants to pretend that SolidCoin is a unique creation.  Remember it is "ready for the bitcoin collapse".  Kinda hard to sell that when it is 99% copied Bitcoin code. 

TL/DR version he has a huge ego and he could never accept giving credit to anyone else.  He has been notified of this multiple times on this forum and on the ScamCoin forum so any claim of "accident" is dubious.  Kinda like accidentaly not realizing your are driving drunk .... for 9 months ... after getting pulled over multiple times.

I think it is less about credit, and more about control. With full copyright control and via the Solidcoin license.txt, Coinhunter can revoke the right for anyone to use Solidcoin if he feels they are negatively impacting Solidcoin. If most of the source files had the MIT license as required, he would only control a small amount of code comprising the Solidcoin client. An enterprising fellow could re-implement the bits of code that turn Bitcoin into Solidcoin, and then there would be a Solidcoin client which Coinhunter did not control via license.

Bitcoin is backed by the full faith and credit of YouTube comments.

Someone could do that now.  Of course reverse engineering the solidcoin "bits" would be a violation of his closed source license.  MIT license doesn't prohibit proprietary implementations of derivative works.
