Update: their website now attributes copyright to both HouFUG AND Brett. This is despite the fact that Brett seems to be the sole owner of the work. I'm not sure why this community feels it can disregard rights to intellectual property, especially when it produces so much on its OWN to be proud of. Why steal other people's stuff?

It'll certainly be less confusing that what HouFUG is publishing. They've now noted on their site that it was written by you. However, they STILL claim they own the copyright. Have you waived any of your exclusive rights to the work?
