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

The options to remedy the infringement are:

  1. delete the project - this seems the best option as this project is not adding anything to the original files.
  2. if the license is compatible with GNU-LGPLv3, replace the infringing files with the original ones, or reinstate the original notices (author, copyright, license);
  3. delete the infringing files and use the new external library https://github.com/tecnickcom/tc-lib-barcode (originally based on the same code).

I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above on the infringing web pages is not authorized by the copyright owner, or its agent, or the law. I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner, or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

My contact information is:

The only contact information I have about the infringers is the one derived from their GitHub page (please see the preceding links above).

Please send me a prompt response indicating the actions you have taken to resolve this matter as soon as possible.
