Hey guys, I need your support now, more than ever!

This idiot +Anvar Dost took all my icons, changed color scheme and sell it! I usually do not go around and check what other developers are doing and I don't have anything against if someone "borrow" from me couple of icons, but this * took 99.9% of my hard work in past few years! HE TOOK OVER 3100+ OF MY ICONS!!!
 
Please report all his apps! If many of us do it, Google will take it down from Play Store!

THOSE POSTED IN PHOTO BELLOW ARE JUST SOME EXAMPLES! 99.9% ARE STOLEN!!! HE EVEN USED SAME ICON NAMES AS MINE!!! 

HE TOOK ALL MY HARD WORK AND SELLING IT LIKE HIS!!!!

How to report it to Google? Go to the app on Play store > scroll all the way to the bottom > press "FLAG AS INAPPROPRIATE" > press IP INFRINGEMENT > press submit!!! PLEASE DO IT!

If you bought any of his apps, please go to Play Store and rate it with 1 star and write review that are stolen!

How did I find out? Was going trough Play Store and saw he wrote that his pack has over 3200+ icons. I immediately downloaded the app to check. Why? As Icon Developer myself, I know its really hard to get to that number! Because it is impossible that someone who started to draw the icons recently has so many icons. My icon developer baddies, who work hard over the years do not have so much themed icons! Well, for this idiot was easy! Took all my hard work, copy/paste, change color and that's it!

What is more interesting, he got his stolen (mine) work featured on very respectable website +Droid Life https://plus.google.com/+DroidLife/posts/ATUagwLNJ7z by
by +Kellen Barranger . Dear +Droid Life , please remove your post and story from your social networks and website, whole work is stolen!

Also, few weeks back, I contacted him to change his app descriptions on Google Play, since he copied/pasted mine, literally word by word!!

Once more I am kindly asking you to go to Play store and report his apps!!!

PLEASE RE-SHARE THIS!!!! LET YOUR FRIENDS KNOW ABOUT THIS, SO THEY DON'T WASTE TIME OR MONEY ON STOLEN WORK!!! DO NOT SUPPORT THIEF!!!

Many thanks

It appears that +SourceForge took over the control of the 'GIMP for Windows' account and is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP. They also locked out original owner of the account, Jernej Simončič, who has been building the Windows versions of GIMP for our project for years.

So far they haven't replied to provide explanations. Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for WIndows via its official Downloads page.
Source for version 2.8 (Stable). GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system. For instructions, how to build GIMP from source code, please see this page.

I'm usually against petitions and change.org entirely. But this is a petition I will sign. And I think so should you.

Clearer communication and some basic decency is all developers are asking. Don't be a tyrant, Google.

If you can’t find the +Android News by Phandroid on the Google Play Store it’s because it’s been banned by Google.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phandroid.droidpress

We received a very general automated e-mail about being removed, attempted to learn how we were in violation so that we could fix it, and received a followup e-mail bluntly confirming our ban: “We have reviewed your appeal and will not be reinstating your app. This decision is final and we will not be responding to any additional emails regarding this removal.”

Wow… really? Any help +Chris Yerga +Sundar Pichai +Google Play?

Would appreciate a +1/Share to help attract the right eyes!

Last week, an obscure but potentially internet-transforming document was leaked from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. It revealed that government regulators are considering rules that would give big companies a chance to make their online services run faster than smaller ones.

Movie industry lobbyists at the MPAA are trying to resurrect SOPA-style web censorship via a back door. Let's defeat online censorship again. Tell the MPAA to kill the #ZombieSOPA. https://takeaction.withgoogle.com/g-stop-mpaa

I gave Thomas Kelley Connors from TK Tech News multiple chances to come forward. He did not. Here he is in his true form: a liar and a fraud.
Throughout the mobile technology world fans and enthusiasts either love it or hate it when an upcoming device leaks to t…
