My name is Björn Stenberg. I am the founder and one of the leaders of the Rockbox open source project. I am also the owner and administrator of the main download site for Rockbox.
In the Rockbox project we take copyright very seriously. Therefore your mail is confusing to me. To the best of my knowledge, the Jewels plugin in Rockbox contains no program code, graphics, text or other material belonging to you or your company. Hence I do not understand what it is you claim to be a "blatant copyright violation".
Please specify in detail what material in our Jewels plugin you claim to hold the copyright to.
