Someone published my game as theirs

Wed Jul 10, 2019 10:03 am

I was made aware today that some developer called "Tech VI" had published my port of Prince of Persia, just changing the "skin" and claiming "developed by Tech VI".
I just want to make clear this was not published by me, although my code is available at GitHub, there is no associated license that would allow the publication of it, and even worse, claiming the authorship of the code.

I reported to Roku and hope they would take down this steal of my work.

And today I was told he also copied and published my " Donkey Kong"  port as his too.
I really hope Roku does something about this, so far the channels are still there.

You might try sending Roku a DMCA Takedown notice for those channels.  Then they would be required to remove them or have a possible copyright lawsuit.

That may be effective, but I personally would prefer you didn't take that DMCA route just yet, as it might have an unintended consequence of Roku becoming overly strict going forward, causing problems or friction for those of us who will be publishing games in the future!

Unfortunately I had to send a DMCA,as Roku said that was the only way they could act on removing these channels.
