what to do against curseforge abuse?

Hello,

I wrote a small Addon (or a simple function) and decided to do not bring it to curseforge.

Lua Code:
  1. function whynot(CurseForge)
  2.     if  CurseForge == Twitch and Twitch ==  Amazon then
  3.             return "The World of Gaming will die";
  4.     end
  5. end

But than I found my addon/idea 3 days later on CurseForge... and the best part: He also uploaded other addon/mods without permission, removed every source AND earn money with a donation email.

Arthas said: "We are too late... This entire person must be purged!"
I said: "But there is a report function..."

But even after 24h I reported 3 addons I dont think that a hyper capitalistic company like Amazon take care about it... After I looked over some addons its feels like 40% are uploadet not by the owner and they benefit with this.

Example:
https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/super-duper-macro
https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/dungeon-entrances (now original by owner, dont report)

I am definitely not the guy who want attention (i dont even play the Instashit realife game) but I hate it when OpenSource/Free Projects are end like this...

What we can do? And why Amazon are not affected by any EU rule?
