OpenSource game clone on Steam
Hello,
I am developer of ManaPlus open source client for 2D MMORPG The Mana World.

Now in Steam Green Light present renamed copy of ManaPlus without code changes except links and background image. And full copy of The Mana World.

Submitter claimed what all this is his work. He also many times violate GPL and CC-BY-SA-3 and removed copyrights from sources. Other people already sent DMCA one time, but sumbitter fixed some copyrights and restored his game.

Is this is Steam rules violation? Can some one help to fix this issue?

Valve not responding for some days.

Links to our work: http://manaplus.org/, http://themanaworld.org/

I dont want post links to fraud game without request.

Soon we want sumbit The Mana World into Green Light, but existing 100% clone may disrupt our game :(

From the Greenlight FAQ (The "About Greenlight" tab at the top of the page)
What if someone else has posted my game?
If your game has been posted by someone else and you wish for it to be taken down, please visit www.valvesoftware.com/legal.html and follow the instructions under 'Claims of Copyright Infringement'

I'm not sure that a public forum such as this is the place to air such discussions without a certain amount af acrimony, (previous examples of similar threads have degenerated quite badly). Given your final clause it seems to be a legit concern.
itá right

Have you sent a DMCA to Valve through this form?

Sorry for long delay,

fraud game was removed by submitter

And now we published The Mana World on greenlight.

Probably better without direct links, if need it can be searched by name.

Happy to hear it worked out for you, and good to see you have the common sense to not abuse this as an opourtunity to plug your game :D

Best of luck ^^
