doubt with premium plugin

  1. good morning. I have sold the authorship of a premium plugin. The guy to whom I sold it has not paid for it yet. The question is: can I report these cases?
     
  2. Well, no. SpigotMC doesn’t have any rules about selling ownership of plugins (or the scamming of), it’s between you and the other party only.
     
  3. Handing over a copyrighted thing surely comes with some paperwork, you know who you're dealing with - just take them to small claims court or something; inquire with a lawyer what your options are.

    If they tricked you into this and you dont' even have 50% up front, didn't investigate who they are, their history, or if their paypal etc is in good standing: welp, life lesson I guess.

    You didn't sell it, it's still yours, they didnt' pay. They're using an unlicensed copy without permission to distribute until the sale is complete. You have DMCA on your side if they distribute it.
