Description (last modified by llogan)

I'm dumping these violators into one ticket because I believe they are all from the same people due to similarities in products and the spam messages.

They all have --enable-gpl and --enable-nonfree in their various offerings.

  • Adoreshare
  • Allavsoft
  • Allpepole
  • Avdshare - Rebranded iDealshare trash. Stole Vimeo's logo.
  • Brorsoft
  • Digiarty - MacX Video Converter Pro / macxdvd.com. Yet another turd from "Jun Xu". See #3993.
  • Faasoft
  • Firecoresoft
  • iDealshare
  • joyoshare
  • Leawo (aka Moyea)
  • MOVAVI - Appears to be LGPL. Does not disclose source, or provide copy of license, or state any changes.
  • Pavtube and clones (i-loveshare/multipelife/onebestsoft). See #4239.
  • Tenorshare. See #4241.
  • Wondershare - LGPL. Does not disclose source, or provide copy of license, or state any changes. From "Shenzhen Wondershare Information Technology Co., Ltd." Spammed Gusari forum.

What are they spamming, and what proof do you have for that?

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by llogan

They are spamming software that includes the ffmpeg binary and/or libraries. Typical spam looks like this:
