Hi

I have a question about opening an open source project.

Can someone take your source code, claim it as his/her own and sue the original creator for copyright infringement if when the original creator decide to make some money off customizations as well?

There's an ebook called "Producing Open Source Software" freely available at http://producingoss.com/ which might be worth to look at.
