    So last year, I created a theme called 2.0-look-a-like which can be found here: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67654. (Please don't bump it). Anyway, as I was browsing YouTube the other day, I found that this guy, Wildta, who has an account on iPTF and YouTube, has just released a theme called 'The Wildta' theme and it is just the theme that I created but with a few extra icons. What's annoying is that he hasn't given me any credit on any of his videos and when i emailed him, he, in block capitals, basically said that because he made some more icons the theme is now his. Is there anything I can do?

    Yeah! Look at the apps on my theme and then the same ones on youtube. They are all the same! Even calendar is exactly the same.

    Also, I posted that theme 05-28-2008, and he said he created it sometime this year!

    You can't really do much to be honest. The most you can do is try and report the video for copyright infringement.

    There should be a way to check the metadata in the images. Get a release of 'his' theme, and compare it against yours. Then, you can message him about it.

    This is not gonna end well. Just tell him yourself. He might be nice about it and give you credit.

    If you see it on any forums, here, macthemes, Modmyi etc, contacts admins/mods, they should remove it asap.

    EDIT: If its in cydia you can easily get it removed by contacting the package host.

    Report it to YouTube.

    There is an icon, I think.

    It is to report objectionable material.

    I would say stealing is objectionable.
