I don't understand the issue.

I see two projects:

The two projects have the same metadata except owner: cdecimal is owned by skrah, m3-cdecimal is owned by prefer.

The license and author (Stefan Krah) are not changed in m3-cdecimal. Where is the "copyright infringement"? Is it the description of the package? The description contains a few lines of text (Overview, Testing, Short benchmarks, Documentation and Linux Notes sections).

I'm unable to reach It looks like the domain is owned by Stefan Krah.

Is it illegal to clone a project on PyPI if the author and license is not changed?
