    EVEN IF CRAFTBUKKIT SHUTS DOWN, will all files and servers using still WORK and RUN?

    as you guys know already Craftbukkit was taken down due to a DMCA request by Wesley Wolfe. thanks Wesley for the Shutdown and for destroying this great project. I DO NOT KNOW WHICH SECTION TO POST THIS UNDER but if it is in the wrong section please move it. Craftbukkit should not die as I been a fan since the start I forgot my other bukkit account so I made this one really fast when I heard the NEWS.

    <removed>

    seriously I do not care if I get banned I support CRAFTBUKKIT since day one and I will always support it I love your project and I think it is not right to shutdown the project without negotiating first. you could of warned them first before anything. I will continue to use Craftbukkit and if the file no longer works I will edit it to continue this great PROJECT.

    ALWAYS A FAN AND BIG SUPPORTER OF CraftBukkit

    i mean it is not hard to negotiate or work out something then call the DMCA especially if you guys had already made a deal before why not work something out because i do not want to see this project go. Out of all the server types BUKKIT has always been my first choice. i am MAD yes but because i think there should of been a better solution how this could of been handled.

    BELOW write how you feel

    [edit by JaguarJo: removed offensive language. It's understandable to be angry, but let's try to keep the discussion civil. Thanks.]

    He was or is a big contributor to bukkit. If he doesn't want his code to be used that is his prerogative.

    Well Mojang could just make their server code open source and this would all be solved.

    all my servers run on Bukkit and i hope you understand why i am ANGRY. i mean no harm but as a big supporter and longtime user of the project you should understand

    now i must decide what to do with my servers?

    even if my the project "DIES" will the latest version released of Craftbukkit still work even though support and production would end. this is what i would like to know please

    I don't know what is going to happen to the bukkit project, but Wesley has a right if he does not want his code used.

    cant Mojang say they can use and continue the project and OVERRIDE Wesley Wolfe decision. i mean Mojang owns Minecraft so they should have some say in this. they have the Rights. and Mojang can release their code yes that is one option or they CraftBukkit can code their own new code. but i think Mojang should just shut Wesley Wolfe UP

    also i still want to know if Craftbukkit will still be able to be useable like if you have servers still using it

    The way it looks like right now is that Mojang can release their server software under the same licence bukkit is under or to redo the portion that Wesley did which is a large part of bukkit.

    i see 3 options

    1. buy the part wesley did off him
    2. recode the part wesley
    3. release server software as mojang

    if wesley did alot then they can rewrite it yes or redo the whole thing. i dont see tho why wesley cant make an agreement with craftbukkit or why he just didnt sell the code to mojang in the first place. (or gave rights to craftbukkit)

    I understand your anger, although I'm rather neutral on the subject. There has been quite a bit of confusion amongst the community too. I'm just slightly annoyed because I was setting up files and such for 1.8 and I guess I'll have to wait a little longer.
    Could always be worse though, the site could of been completely shutdown.

    Not exactly. You're right in that he owns the copyright on any code that he contributed to bukkit and has a right to decide if/how to make it available. However, he already made that decision when he licensed his copyrighted code under the GPL. He can not decide to "un-license" his copyrighted code after the fact.

    Anybody who follows the terms of the license is able to make use of his code under those terms.
