ROFLMAO. Brilliant. I wondered where such a name came from. You didn't
only reverse you tilted a few letters.
BTW. I know it's a thin line. But if the copyright holder is
non-existent, then there is no copyright right?
Another questionable thought. What about registering "Reuuimlla
Technology Co., Ltd." at the Chinese authorities (chamber of
commerce) and claim copyright as stated in the code.
...Corporate legal thinking yugh.
Rules and laws never hinder those who which to harm. Those who want
live in harmony are always limited by the rules to prevent harm.
The problem is choice and choice is probably the solution.
