Title: Copyright attribution - mitigate DMCA takedown

SumoKoin had an issue with not correctly attributing copyright to Monero. Their github was taken down for a few days.


We could easily remove this issue by correct attribution to various altcoins.


Is BiblePay a fork of DASH? Are there any GridCoin components that need to be attributed? There was mention of bbppool being a fork of gridcoin pool.. so I thought there might be a connection.

BBP-Pool is written by the same individual who wrote the GRC-Pool.  So any code he reused would be his to do so.

I was referring to the BiblePay code. Since BiblePay is a fork of DASH, and DASH is a fork of Bitcoin, having all the correct copyright attributions would not lock the GitHub repo due to DMCA. I've seen it twice now with two different projects. One was Sumokoin a fork of Monero. Their GitHub repo was locked for a few days.
