Some folks are really cowards!

Just today I got hold of a G1 phone. As I was searching the Android App Market, what do I see? I see that some person by the name 'Steve Coward' has copied my tutorial and packaged it as his own! He has published it as Tip Calculator on the App Market for free download.

I dont mind people using my source code, but I had expressly written in the source code that please dont redistribute this code! 

At the very least he could have given some credit to me!

I really feel that some folks dont get the meaning of tutorials, helping hands, requests to not do certain things. Very unethical!
