I don't want to discuss this in public. This wouldn't be good 
for the whole community. That's also the reason why I quited 
dealing with him silently.

I know, I never claimed legal copyright. But I think I have 
some "moralic copyright".

I have no problems with that, though I have heard that this 
might change too. A big company can easily defend its legal 
rights, but I'm only a single person hoping for community 
support. I think that's the much better way for me (and 
everyone else, maybe except Randy) to solve the problem instead 
of going to a lawyer which might not help anyway.

Have fun!
