Still waiting for a resolution from BBW team before I decide anything
Thanks again for the help!!!!!


I hope BBW bans nextGen.  I had a similar problem with one of my app but not to this extend.  The problem was just a application name change.

 

Great job guys for helping Eddy everyone. :Clap:  Now back to writing cool apps.

Re: Unfair and Unhealthy Competition from a Developer Called nextGen

Though I'd like nextgen to be penalized, banning would be too harsh. Everyone got mouths to feed.

Thanks again for the help everyone !!!

Re: Unfair and Unhealthy Competition from a Developer Called nextGen

You're very kind to think that way. They were trying to band you, so taking the higher road is refreshing.

You might be considering in letting this go. However, reporting the layer of record is the right thing to do. You have to consider that this behavior, unchecked, will occur to someone else. A developer should not be allowed to bully another developer via a lawyer. If a developer "legally" did something wrong, they should try to resolve it face to face and if that fails, then bring in the legal system. The US (and especially parts of California) like to start with the lawyers. Lawyers should be the last resort.

Re: Unfair and Unhealthy Competition from a Developer Called nextGen

This is not the first time I am hearing this... But sure enough, the first time someone trying his luck with law books... This is totally unethical, to devalue other's work with such actions. Nice spotting on your end though...

Do let us know what will and can be done!

@jtegen Don't get me wrong, I personally would like BBW officials to penalize him to some extent.

 

This case should then serve as a warning to other developers who have done (thinking of pulling) the same **bleep**.

I was just saying that permanent banning would be too harsh.


@tezytan It's hard not to notice when the reviews are total nonsense.

I am still curious on what BlackBerry will do.

Re: Unfair and Unhealthy Competition from a Developer Called nextGen

That's true.

I agree with you that first time should have some harsh warning...

Well, been 5 days, But I would expect something to cook up around 10 working days though...

Re: Unfair and Unhealthy Competition from a Developer Called nextGen

A harsh warning would be appropriate in most situations, but not when someone has forged legal documents in an attempt to eliminate competition. That crosses a line and IMO needs to result in criminal prosecution.

Re: Unfair and Unhealthy Competition from a Developer Called nextGen

Got a late reply from the court.

It says

Mr. Lui a case has not been filed against you in the Central District and
the summons is not genuine.

Re: Unfair and Unhealthy Competition from a Developer Called nextGen

Congrats. I would still contact that lawyer to see if they are real, and then report the act to the DA for fraud investigation. This kind of abuse of the legal system should not be tolerated. I would also formally supply this information to BB to see what kind of action they need to take against this developer.
