To the developers of Cu-SeeMe:

After reviewing the README of VideoPhone posted by Roel Vertegaal on
this forum, I too agree it looks like fraud. This brings to mind two
questions.

First, if he is not authorized to modify and distribute for profit,
then how did he get access to the Mac source code?

And second, if he IS authorized, then how did he get access to the
Mac source code?

I have been dying to make my own changes and play with it some.
I have always been under the impression from you guys that the source
is kept under wraps in order to prevent many 'improved' copies from
floating around. I would love to find an interim fix for the MediaVision
palette problem, even if not a proper one, it would be better than nothing.

Is the source available? Or did Mr. Kahan write a look-alike from scratch?
May WE have the source code? Pleeeeeeez ?
