I can appreciate that Coders and Addon writers want a credit for their work, but what this MOD does is give the impression that all the MODS and add ons on a board are by Dragon Byte, when there are probably some that are not.

I also don't like that you should have uncheck if you don't want to show the link to hi velocity hosting, the correct default would be to check it if want to show it.

I actually agree with Cristos that this MOD, actually infringes other MOD copyrights on pages where DragonByte MODS are not being used.

It can take up to 24 hours for the copyright to merge, does it work now?

Then it is your option not to use this mod

We provide this mod as an alternative for people who use a lot of our mods and don't want to see multiple copyright statements. We would be completely within our rights to not offer this mod and simply tell people who complain about copyrights to buy the Branding Free licenses or shut up.

Even though we lose visibility (and as a result, money) from providing this mod, and we also provide an option to disable the Hivel sponsor, you still want us to hurt ourselves more? I'm sorry, but to me that is an entirely and completely unfair request, bordering on rude.

Per Paul's note above ^

I'm going to consider the discussion of why you feel their copyright mod infringes upon others copyright as such i.e. an unrelated topic, no more discussion of this it's ridiculous.
  • This mod merges multiple DBTech copyrights into one it does not hijack your copyright and rename it nor replace links within.
  • Word your copyright correctly to distinguish if need be.

Personally I see why they simply made it say:

Powered by vBulletin™ version 4.2.1 Copyright 2013 vBulletin Solutions, Inc. All rights reserved.
Modifications © DBTech

Because having example 2 is why the mod was made, example 3 would be just silly.

Keep this thread on topic which is support of this modification not its validity regarding infringing upon others copyrights with theirs when none existed to begin with or if it did, because it was not worded properly enough to distinguish between the two respectively.

Please ensure all your DBTech modifications are running the latest versions - they must be newer than April 2013 in order to function with this new version of CM

Happy for you, but I also deleted it because it is poorly worded

So if I added this mod, waited the 24 hours and did do what it's suppose to do, but then i added another mod after the 24 hour wait will this automatic fix or wait another 24 hours? just asking cause this is happening to me and wondering if it should of fix it's self or I have to wait another 24 hours PER MOD i add? it's no biggie, just wanna make sure.

also is there a wait to center the link on the botton? It shoves it to the right side under an already centered footer and look like crap

You'll only have to wait again if you install a new mod that we've only just released (not an update, but an entirely new mod)
