Today, one of my followers alerted me to a new account on the App Store where 13 of my commercial HTML5 games had been stolen, covered in ads, and credited to Claudio Souza Mattos. After submitting a DMCA takedown with Apple, I confronted the owner of the account. Claudio told me: "There is a lot of codecanyon html 5 games better than yours.Your games are not top notch (just a few of them - put that in mind). --- The true fact is that you are ignorant, just face the facts. I already bought a lot of codecanyon stuff, chupamobile apps and unity games. --- Put a warning at your page stating that and i guarantee that you wont have problems with other people sharing your games...there tons of other developers that allow us to publish the games." After removing the games, he said: "Show me where your games are at our site...otherwise, go to the beach, i guess it is afternoon in Australia right? Or Are You feeling lonely? Want to exchange more emails? Visit tinder and find a partner dude." Claudio Souza Mattos, who used to work for IBM, has no respect for the content he is stealing and monetizing without permission. Since he has published a lot of games (update: most apps have now been removed, but he made new accounts & continues to steal games), I wanted to bring this matter to the attention of other developers in case he has stolen other games. Check the account link below and use the following contact information to remove your games if you find them. Account link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/giana-lucia-cardoso-mattos/id504038288 (named after his wife Giana) Facebook account #1 (confirmed): https://www.facebook.com/vristhenewthing Facebook account #2 (confirmed): https://www.facebook.com/claudiosouzamattos LinkedIn profile (confirmed): https://br.linkedin.com/in/cmattos Support website: funtasticstore.com Support email: email@example.com Additionally, if someone steals your games in the future, please post a similar thread like this so that other developers can cross-reference it for their own games. This isn't the first time this has happened and it won't be the last. Update: Claudio also masquerades as @Jacob Sam and @Geekiam on this forum and lies pathologically throughout the rest of this thread.
