Thanks Alan,

the biggest problem for us is, that some clients contact our support 
team and they have other PDF Maker extension. It's really hard to 
explain why there are 2 extensions with the same name in oficial vtiger 
Marketplace. And yes, the extension ist still published.

About Links and Description. For us it was not allowed to write any 
Links to demo or company name because the publisher is visible in the 
right side of marketplace page. In Smackcoders marketplace there are 
many links and many information about company.

I really don't understand this, why we are so banned.
