Hi Abdrahman,

about the stolen modules... I don't think that stolen in your specific case is the right word to use as those module where written and published under AGPL... Plagiarism is the only thing that you can maybe use if they didn't respected the authorsihp rules. Which is enough to give a blame to those guys...

A few weeks ago we sent a complaint to

about plagiarism of our cmms module with one of ex developper
Fortunately we had released the code which  enabled to Odoo who has done a good job to find plagiarism and order the person to respect the AGPL license and add nextma as an initial contributor (the module removed after refusing to correct the module by this person)
this is not the first plagiarism that we unfortunately find some modules that we have not published the code that was stolen by former trainees can not initiate similar proceedings but we will soon publish to protect us.

morality: if you want to protect your modules publish it
