    A company call "S4BB Ltd." (seems to be chinese based) published a shameless copy of PalmPDF on Handango.com for sale (49 US-$). They even grabbed the screenshots from PalmPDF and the original icon, which also were created by myself:

    Did you already alert Handango about the issue?

    I've send an email to Handango and to the "developer". I've also contacted the guy behind the website, where the grabbed screenshots are stored.

    Franko515: thx, as more complain as faster they remove it :-)

    I've received an email from Handango, that they go to disable the product. I assume the matter is solved now.

    Thank you all for help,

    I think Eye for an Eye. Jail may be a little harsh.

    I agree that it's shameless, but it's not exactly illegal according to the GPL. I think the only issue there could be is if the reseller doesn't provide the source code, or some way to get the source code.

    Of course I'd rather not see GPL software that's provided as freeware sold by someone else.

    Hi Henk,

    Just to let you know that I am still able to see it for sale $49 and I was able to put it on my cart! (it is now 4:30 pm Pacific time).

    Take care.

    But is doesn't show up in the new-entries list and doesn't come up when you search for it. Also one guy kindly managed to submit successfully the free PalmPDF as freeware on Handango and it shows up in the search. I think, that's ok so far.

    Thank you very much
    Henk
