Shree - a copyright infringement case

Written: September 17, 2015

Here we will document the first registered case of plagiarising the MMEX for Android app, together with the copyrighted works of other authors, including the software components, translations, and graphical images.

Even though the source code of our app has been provided for free, under the GPL License, the author of this app simple decided to ignore any copyrighted work and licenses, and place his own copyright in the About page.

Below is the direct comparison of some screens, with the infringing app to the left and MMEX for Android to the right. In some cases we have added the light version of MMEX, too, which makes the similarities stand out even more.
