To whom it may concern,
I have read and understand GitHub's Guide to Filing a DMCA Notice.
This DMCA takedown is for the following projects hosted on your website:
and the following project forks that have none or very small changes (FORKS1):
and the following forks that have files renamed or moved in another folder (FORKS2):
I have investigated each individual case and I have noticed that the projects listed above are using source code copied from the project https://github.com/tecnickcom/TCPDF originally hosted at http://sourceforge.net/projects/tcpdf/ but all original notices about author, copyright and license were removed or replaced.
The first commit on the PARENT project is indicated as 7 September 2013, so it can be safely compared against TCPDF version 6.0.025 released 4 September 2013 (https://github.com/tecnickcom/TCPDF/tree/6.0.025):
In the PARENT and FORKS1 projects the following files appears to be almost verbatim copies of the original ones, with the exception of the legal notices removed (author, copyright and license):
In the FORKS2 project the following files appears to be almost verbatim copies of the original ones, with the exception of the legal notices removed (author, copyright and license):
The original code is released under the GNU LGPLv3 license and copyrighted by [Private] - Tecnick.com LTD, but none of this information is present in the copied files. https://github.com/tecnickcom/TCPDF/blob/6.0.025/LICENSE.TXT
