    My name is Wesley Wolfe. A site hosted on an IP address owned by Multiplay
    (ip redacted) is infringing on my software copyright by the distribution
    of a software known as CraftBukkit.

    Original content can be found at ... olvereness ... 64614b6327

    and the appropriate license for previously mentioned content can be found at ... ICENCE.txt

    The provided license requires the use of included or linking code to
    provide the original source under the GNU GPL license version 3, or any
    later version. An official notice has been sent to Mojang AB, whereas the
    Chief Operating Officer, Vu Bui, responded with the clear text:

    Mojang has not authorized the inclusion of any of its proprietary
    Minecraft software (including its Minecraft Server software) within the
    Bukkit project to be included in or made subject to any GPL or LGPL
    license, or indeed any other open source license

    As the Minecraft Server software is included in CraftBukkit, and the
    original code has not been provided or its use authorized, this is a
    violation of my copyright. I have a good faith belief the distribution of
    CraftBukkit includes content of which the distribution is not authorized by
    the copyright owner, it's agent, or the law.

    Pages including infringing content: - links to: - links to 45 pages, with
    infringing content beginning on craftbukkit build #1597 and currently
    ending at craftbukkit build #3115, but please allow me not to enumerate
    them all ... 03_1.1-R1/ (the
    first infringing build)

    I have a good faith belief that the above information is accurate and that
    I am the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's

    Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512(c)), the
    above mentioned pages need to be expeditiously removed or access-of
