Well it's kinda like this... People have to give credit where credit is due. Plain and simple. I understand that people want to protect the code they have written and all, but when you only write 1/3 of the code that you try to copyright, something should be said.
I am not saying that anything is wrong per se, but I am saying give credit to the author/owner. I have posted code a few times, I have also mentioned that entire class's have been copy from other places and given credit.
Tim knows exactly what I am talking about, he writes code for a living, I write code for a living. I have tried several times to spark some interest in posting code up here, but before Tim, nobody else has ever shown interest.
I have 3 projects started which I plan to release under the GPL, and for the last few months I have talked with Guess about the best way to house the projects at BBF, as I really don't like SF.
You tell me that writing code and this and that may be harder than it looks, absolutely it is. But it's paid for my house, my cars and all my toys that I have today. I've wrtten custom blackberry apps for several business's thusfar and think that I have a descent understanding of the whole code thing.
I have offered lots and lots of help to people in here with specific programming questions. Don't try and critisize me as you are not even close to my league.
For a final note, I think it's great that people are starting to post sample code and such, I hope it continues. We just have to make sure that credit is given where it's due, or some author somewhere down the road is gonna complain and make this all for nothing. Copyright is a very serious (legal) thing.
