If I had to wager ONE MILLION DOLLARS I'd guess that he "borrowed" the code, script and graphics from here:Originally Posted by phfrkz1
and then posted it as his own work without giving credit or attribution to original author, which is presumably fine, since the ACTUAL author of the code and graphics was nice enough to make the unprotected fla file FREELY available so that other people could use and improve on the code.
It was pretty easy to find too -- five minutes on Google (search: "flash binary clock") and I found over a dozen FREE scripts, including the one zeroplace "borrowed" and locked up.
By the way, zeroplace, the script that you "borrowed" was released under the GNU General Public License (see http://wiki.chumby.com/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page), which requires, among other things that "if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights." Releasing a locked fla file without also distributing the source code would be a violation of the license for the code you "borrowed." Just a friendly reminder.
I'm not going to editorialize further on the point, because at this point I'd only be making personal attacks. But, in all honestly, I think this example unequivocally proves the point that I and others have made in this thread. As always, draw your own conclusions.
