    "Chnadana Madhura Kulatunga - A copyright violator!!!"

    August 20, 2009  |   By sahan2006

    Version: Madura English-Sinhala Dictionary 2006

    Pros

    Sri Lanka is a country where rogues are hailed and the real genuine efforts are left unnoticed.

    Cons

    The dictionary database is originally developed and owned by THIBUS software. And the author of this software has illegally copied the database from THIBUS without any fear. This is a shameless, gross violation of copyrights.

    Summary

    The following dictionaries, which have the same definitions, have illegally copied the dictionary database originally developed by Thibus software:

    - Madura English-Sinhala Dictionary
    - Madura Online Dictionary - (http://www.maduraonline.com)
    - Chatura Sinhala English Dictionary
    - Vidudaya English-Sinhala Dictionary
    - SriLankeeya Online Sinhala English Dictionary (http://srilankeeya.com/dictionary)
    - EnSiTip - English-Sinhala-PopUp Dictionary (a Firefox add-on)
    - Chatura Sinhala English Dictionary Firefox Toolbar
