  • [QUOTE=hexpunK;35930147]That's a fucking retarded reason to "issue" DMCAs, and you should feel bad for even trying. You don't save a "prototype" of your gamemode from being confused as the release by issuing DMCAs, you just tell people that it isn't final. Fuck. How on earth has C16 lasted this long? You all seem pretty high and mighty over what amounts to...well nothing really.[/QUOTE] I don't think you quite saw my point.. instead of using a buggy pre-alpha, you could use the previous version. It's not the developers using it that we care about, it's the people opening servers calling it Clockwork when it's not.

Which is what I was getting at.

  • [QUOTE=Alex_grist;35929806]I think most of you have the wrong idea about why we're sending out DMCA's. We're not doing it for some 'power' reasons, we're doing it because the version that got leaked is a pre-alpha version which is just a reskin of OpenAura and we don't want people seeing that as the final version. OpenAura's been leaked, enough times that anyone can get it and we'd just prefer those who like and want Clockwork just wait until it's finished since it'll be free.[/QUOTE] So there's no copyright infringements but you send a Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedown notice? That's not how it works.

We've already discussed this, Clockwork is copyrighted and it's in violation of the license provided with Clockwork if they're hosting a copy of it with a method of DRM circumvention.
