If I can give up authorship and to give the project to the public domain?

Suppose I have a project in the AppStore, GooglePlay, plus open source on Github.
Come to me uncle in uniform and say that it's important, they need a backdoor and access to personal data (I do not save, but now needs to preserve and pass on to them). To cooperate I have no desire to.

Option just to forget the password from the relevant accounts are not very suitable, because they tied a whole bunch more, my life in the end. Yes, then go and prove that I forgot, and do not hold back.

Is it possible to voluntarily withdraw from the law and responsibility for the project to be innocent? Of course, I will not be able to maintain and develop the project, but at least he will be clean. And copyleft license type MIT free navigation is secured.

Solution
From the right to the source code we can easily as I said @cecelia_Hagenes19 - source open GitHub and GPL/MIT license. But from your running app without deleting it will not work. The source code and the finished product - two different things

For starters the terms are incorrectly used.

Authorship is always from the moment of creation. Then, when the project is joined by other people - it may be eroded. But just to give up authorship in legal terms is impossible. Well if you are anonymous, of course.

This is a different sort of thing.

If you system to sell/rent and there is a corresponding law - or have to build or break this business. Well, or run as the actor with his Telegram.

Is it possible to voluntarily withdraw from the law and responsibility for the project to be innocent?


Responsibility for what?
If you have some Trojan, then it will not work.
Nakosyachil -.

If something like messenger, you just block. Actually all this thing for you which can be uncomfortable if you have big and popular project.

Well, that is how you will refuse, but that project alive?
Well publish the source code.

And the server will be locked and project will die anyway.

Option just to forget the password from the relevant accounts are not very suitable, because they tied a whole bunch more, my life in the end. Yes, then go and prove that I forgot, and do not hold back.


It all depends on the importance of the project.
If it's wildly important - for example, the payment system, through which are billions around the world - you wouldn't want to give up.

If you project to drop, it is likely that it will be bent.
But in such an unimportant project no one is interested to get you a backdoor.

To give up authorship is basically impossible - or all the authors of malware and anti-government books through this would say.

Send "city and the world" program source code and the right to modification is not a problem. But that does not cancel Your authorship that You have written.

Judging by the phrase "access to personal data (I do not save, but now needs to preserve and pass on them)" - there You have not so much as the running service. Experience of communicating with people in uniform I have, I will not advise, but will list the options:
1) to Demand from them in writing to convey their demands, require writing a technical specification, be required to pay for the work on the implementation of the desired functions.
2) Close the project, disable the service, delete data.
3) Give them the password from the service, and let them do what they want.
4) to refuse to operate, preserving the service to consider that they have a long arm.

The Council "in case of conflict - publish the event log is" support. As a rule, the requirements of people in uniform is illegal, so the publicity they fear. But if their demands were legal (or illegal, but supported by strong backers) - better to go on the first point.

Bollocks.

To change the license to GPL and to transfer the project to the FSF.
and Durov not sure that this is nonsense. - alfred_OKon52 commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:55
@alfred_OKon52, I doubt the TC project up to the project Durov. About the veracity of this story with Durov I generally keep quiet. - cecelia_Hagenes19 commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:58
@cecelia_Hagenes19, and you have the citizenship of which country? - alfred_OKon52 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:01
@cecelia_Hagenes19and all, see. - alfred_OKon52 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:04
@cecelia_Hagenes19, the guys in the cells you have shut the exit nodes too, tell me - alfred_OKon52 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:07
@alfred_OKon52about equivocation ride. Not for a criminal offence, and for the "little novinenko vodochku," yeah. - cecelia_Hagenes19 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:10
@alfred_OKon52, of course, is nonsense, because when it's about the fact that they can put things completely pointless tricks with the license will no longer. Pointless - because it will do nothing. The police do not care what license the application, data about the users which they will require from the author.
This trick probably would have worked if we were talking about the pressure to prevent the spread of the application. However, it would have saved only the application from the liquidation, but not the author from punishment for facilitating the bypass of locks, for example. - Jaylen59 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:13
do you think that you are trying to justify? - alfred_OKon52 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:16
@alfred_OKon52, I have something to justify? I thought I wear fools who believe in different hysterical nonsense, taken from the public and marginal sites. - cecelia_Hagenes19 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:19

across the border, and do not be afraid
Abroad there are also people in uniform. And they are no better here. - Ava.Pfeffer commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:57

To renounce one's rights do not rush to refuse to cooperate should be loud, earn even more trust of consumers, and of PR, with all the consequences. Examine the experience of Telegram, Durov of these suggestions were able to benefit.
And what Durova is the benefit of the Telegram, at least the dollar is?
Interested to hear your opinion on this matter. - Jeffrey_Wilderman commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:59
@Jeffrey_Wilderman, although the project is non-profit, the dividends from such an act is inevitable. To protect the interests of users, their rights to privacy of correspondence, inspires confidence. Trust is expensive. - izabella.Franecki commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:02
@izabella.Franecki, there are no dividends and no profit - Jeffrey_Wilderman commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:05
@Jeffrey_Wilderman, is a not for profit project, and people have been chat - Bridie22 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:08
@Jeffrey_Wilderman, @Bridie22, you are so naive!

@Clinton, I do not fantasize on the contents of the telegram gets 10+ million. A dividend implies the section for the year net profit. What there is to divide -13 million.? You see the difference between commercial and non-commercial projects, or for you it is all one and the same? In other words, without giving any arguments or evidence you tickled his paranoid - Jeffrey_Wilderman commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:14
@Jeffrey_Wilderman,
there are no dividends

You can't hear me, not understand what I'm saying? Man is his actions, paraphrased Brodsky). In the future, other things being equal, choosing from projects including product Durov, will choose him, he did not merge, even under the threat of closure of the project. This choice will make many. I hope it is unnecessary to develop the idea - more consumers, more profits. - izabella.Franecki commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:17
@izabella.Franecki,
more consumers, more profits.

Officially a single dollar of profit, i.e. you are indirectly saying that Durov does not pay taxes?

in the future

Vanhuele what will happen in the future? - Jeffrey_Wilderman commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:20
Copyright issues, licensing, etc. — are exclusively in the legal field.
Let's start with the fact that authorship and ownership are two different things.
Officially, the countries of the former USSR ( except the Baltic States), these issues are not spelled out clearly, precisely and usability understand - anywhere and any way.

About people in uniform.
If you have an accurate description of the project, and it can be seen that data, you not exactly picking up and not keep, then they shouldn't be.
Although pozamantir can, well, suddenly you...still... :) - Providenci33 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:23
