just sent this in a pm to kovid goyal:
Hi Kovid --
First off, I want to say I think we got off on the wrong foot.
I only got a Kindle last week, and Calibre after that, and just learned Joomla, etc. to make this website -- so if I've been attributing things incorrectly it's because of my naivety, not anything malicious.
re: hiding calibre -- I was having problems getting my server to update the files and was having to mess with the tags so that when i used save to disk, it would rename them with the correct filenames. i tried changing the author, publisher, etc and switching them around, using those tags to try to save with better filenames. should i change the publisher back to calibre? i wasn't aware that this is a field i shouldn't edit. i have no problem doing this and can add that metadata back in during today's update.
re: contributors -- what's the proper way, with the gpl license, to acknowledge the recipe makers? i have a list of contributors in the CALIBRE_CONTRIBUTORS category (you're on there, for sure. thanks). just not sure if this is the proper way...
re:comments, etc -- I really didn't make any account other than this one. I swear to you. Not sure if that's enough, but if not I'm sure someone on the forum can check to see that the accounts aren't the same.
basically, i realized that doing this was possible and wanted to get the site up in a hurry.
your help complying with the gpl license and also properly attributing calibre would be appreciated.
please accept my sincerest apologies, i didn't mean to step on anyone's toes.
you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We should probably be giving people the benefit of the doubt. Definitely inform him of his mistakes, but I think the accusations are uncalled for at this point!

As far as attributing calibre, dont change the metadata in the files and add a notice to your website describing what software you use to create the files.
But what you're doing is still illegal, you cannot redistribute copyrighted content, without the permission of the copyright holders, in this case, the publishers creating the news websites. The fact that you are doing it for free, doesn't make it legal.

Why? Do you enjoy stealing the works of others?

The publishers sure do, but - at least here - they also complain about google indexing their pages and think that google news is illegal..
That does of course not relate to the usage of calibre, nor does it mean that I suggest it is legal - nevertheless I don't see any reason for any ethical accusation.
