Here is another example of how some vendors will steal indicators and package them under their name.

First screen shot is my free indicator TrendGRaBer posted on futures.io (formerly BMT) in downloads section.

Second screen shot is the stolen version shamelessly packaged in a dll file and deceivingly name it AcmeFibonacciWave without giving any credit.

One can assume other stuff they are selling are stolen also.

seems like their version has more parms and candle wick/tail stick out more, just some observation. On other hand don't raise your blood pressure sometimes it could be an improvement of your version which you can steal some ideas back or sometimes it's just a pure coincident. If Elders worries about this he won't write another book.

No, unless I'm hallucinating, they're completely identical (aside from coloration and the last bar).

Any lawyers in the house? I've heard of the GNU public license, but I don't know how it works. Does anyone know if it is applicable and would it provide recourse for anyone who publishes their work on a forum? Are there other options? Or are people basically screwed without legal copyright?

Yes, noted. No rising blood pressure since I posted it free for all on futures.io (formerly BMT). They just added colors as parms. Just po'd that they made it into a dll.

Been a lot of talk of the Rancho Dinero indicators lately here.

I agree silly to sell colored candles based on 34 ema. GRaB is an acronym that stands for Green, Red and Blue, which is a trading style used by Interbank FX Chief Currency Analyst Raghee Horner. Raghee uses 3 exponential moving averages to help her in her trading.

Agree @Lornz, Thanks. Last bar is being formed (will color on close of the bar)

WOW, the resemblance is EXACT! If I or someone knew/could peek & disassemble the DLL code well ....

Completely sad that this goes on, although it is never surprising, and, certainly reinforces how the vast majority of indicators by "successful" traders are their main source of revenue, while they tout the monthly thousands that can be made with a $2500 account to unsuspecting newbies. It's infuriating and immoral.
