    Representatives of PocketMine, in communities of social network Vkontakte school students-suckers started downloading plugins from http://forums.pocketmine.net/plugins and sell them as own. I want to prevent it. For this purpose the administration VKontakte asked to contact support of one of representatives of PocketMine. You can make it, please? http://vk.com/support

    They aren't giving direct links to PM Forum. I found my plugin in this group, and I find out that it costs 100 rubles (1.63$)...

    The ownership doesn't belong to the forums, so actually they can't do anything except at most block those IPs from using the forums, given that your plugin is protected by a license and people violated it. If no, you can't stop people using it for any purposes because things without license are just like coins you found on the street; you can do anything with it. (Actually no in some places ;)) Anyway, unless your plugin is copyrighted and registered, I don't think there is anything lawsuit you can do against it. If you didn't even use a license, you have no reason to stop people using it.

    People who buy those plugins ate just stupid.

    @shoghicp had his plugins treated siththd same way and knows it too, but he didn't do anything. Either he doesn't care, or that he just can't do anything. Meanwhile, let's just forget about those people!
