Since virtually all calculator community software is released without license, they're not doing anything illegal until individual authors ask them for removal.
For the millionth time, no license is not a WTFPL. Licenses are inclusive, not exclusive: you can't do anything with a piece of software (redistribution, reuse, sale, etc) if it has no license.

Thanks for the find @haveacalc we should probably start compiling a list of everything we can find on there for authors who are still active in the community and alert them. It would be nice if there was a proper way to ask for things to be taken down that aren't ours and the authors are not active anymore.

I took the liberty and started a Google Doc. I added a tab for consenting users as well. It's mentioned on the sheet but this is not where you give consent! Anyone can type in a name. That tab is to consolidate who gave consent to whom and to link to the public forum post where that consent was given. Ideally, maybe post any relevant profiles (TI-calc, Cemetech, Omnimaga, TI-Planet, etc) in the forum post so that if links to your programs are those sites under another alias it's easy to reference back on who is who.

You do not need to do the consent thing, this is just an example of something that should provide decent proof that you gave consent to someone. I don't know if this is legally binding or adequate for consenting but it's a start.

You'll need an invite to edit the doc so PM me with an e-mail and I'll get that set up. If there's an a lot of interest I'll perhaps open it up so anyone can edit without an invite.

Yet another site.
Yea, that one seems a bit different because they credit the authors and don't claim that any of the programs are theirs.
I mean, there's a reason why I only uploaded it on one site until now, and it's just because I don't want to update it on several websites, so please people, don't upload it on other websites without updating it...

Anyone knows how I can contact them, at least to tell them to do something about the updates ?
(it would be great if instead of having their version of the zip, they could link to the TI Planet archive).
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.
