Sure, I never said so! At this point, I think it's only a problem with me having issue dealing with assholes that think they can just go famous by selling my code as their own. I used to think I could go with it, until it happened. Maybe it just bother me when jerks can satisfy themselves!

So your problem is that it's not you who became famous?

Again, licensing solves all this.

I know, and that's why I switched from WTFPL to MIT for my code.

The MIT license doesn't disallow anyone to take your code and make a shitload of money with it. It just forces them to place a note somewhere in the README (as in: WILLNEVERBEREAD) mentioning you.

I haven't had any experience of somebody trying to steal my code (I'm not famous enough, I guess :P)
But I don't think anybody really cares about licenses if they are willing to market other people's code
as their own.
