SubjectDMCA takedown notice - GPC-Slots 2 (after GPL Revocation from "John Doe")
**Please provide a detailed description of the original copyrighted work 
that has allegedly been infringed. If possible, include a URL to where
it is posted online.**

GPC-Slots 2 is a text-mode casino game I created. It includes 5 slot
machines, 3 table games (Sic Bo, Craps, and 2 variations of the little
wheel), plus Russian Roulette and a stock market.
You can enjoy it from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gpcslots2/

*What files should be taken down? Please provide URLs for each file, or
if the entire repository, the repository's URL:**

http://github.com/MikeeUSA/GPC-Slots-2

**Have you searched for any forks of the allegedly infringing files or
repositories? Each fork is a distinct repository and must be identified
separately if you believe it is infringing and wish to have it taken
down.**

Yes, they are also on other platforms, all uploaded by the "John Doe"

**Is the work licensed under an open source license? If so, which open
source license? Are the allegedly infringing files being used under the
open source license, or are they in violation of the license?**

Yes. The GPL. However I had revoked the "John Doe"'s license. The
license, in this instance, being a bare license.
A license without an interest attached is revocable, in the USA.
The "John Doe" was not in privity of contract with me, and had not paid
me anything for the work.
It was licensed to him under a bare license, which had then been
rescinded.
He thus had not, and does not have, any permission to use, modify,
distribute, nor make derivative works of the aforementioned work.
Remeber: the license comes from me, the Copyright owner. Not from any
document or record: that is simply a memorandum of the terms.
I have chosen to revoke the "John Doe"'s license, and not issue any to
him further. He has been informed of this.
His actions there-after and at current are infringing.

**What would be the best solution for the alleged infringement? Are
there specific changes the other person can make other than removal?**

The only solution that I will accept is you acquiescing to my demand of
removal.

**Do you have the alleged infringer's contact information? If so, please
provide it:**

No. You can ask him for it here: 8ch.net/tech/res/1018729.html
You can also contact the "John Doe" through the email he registered with
you. Don't play dumb.

**Please confirm that you have you have read our Guide to Submitting a
DMCA Takedown Notice:
https://help.github.com/articles/guide-to-submitting-a-dmca-takedown-notice/**

I really do not give half a damn about your guide. It is patronizing and
moronic, it sounds as if it were written by a woman, perhaps a
paralegal.
The fact of the matter is that a bare license is revocable by the
grantor.
To achieve an irrevocable license one must generally enter into a
copyright license contract with the licensor, supported by good
consideration.
"Obeying the license" is not good consideration as it is a pre-existing
legal duty.

**So that we can get back to you, please provide either your telephone
number or physical address:**

Contact me at mikeeusa@redchan.it

I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials
described above on the infringing web pages is not authorized by the
copyright owner, or its agent, or the law. I have taken fair use into
consideration.

I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this
notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner, or am
authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is
allegedly infringed.

**Please type your full legal name below to sign this request:**

I'm signing with my long-held nom de guerre. Think of it as an X
