I published a software project under the GNU Affero General Public License version 3.0. I have written the code behind it, hence I am the copyright holder.
According to the AGPL license, anyone who redistributes this software or a derivative must distribute it under the GPL as well.
Recently, I saw a distribution of a modified version of my software distributed under another license, and also violating other terms of the AGPL v3.0.
I have contacted several organisations, such as
- Free Software Foundation (FSF)
but I did not receive any response.
I do not have adequate (financial) resources (and time) to hire a lawyer just to settle this small issue, especially as this is just a side project of mine.
How do I enforce the license of my AGPL software, and take action on the violators of the license(to comply with the AGPL)? There are a lot of information on the Internet on how to use the (A)GPL on your software but very few sources of information on how you can enforce it when someone violates the license.
