Reiza Studios have again made available for purchase new racing simulator Automobilista Motorsports Simulator after a recent Copyright Infringement claim forced the Brazilian studio to withdraw the title from Steam. On March 29th 2016 small Brazilian development team Reiza Studios were forced to withdraw from sale new racing simulator Automobilista Motorsports Simulator (AMS) due to an undisclosed copyright claim by an external party. At the time of withdrawal Reiza's Renato Simioni rightfully refused to confirm details of the claim other than stating that no specific reference to content allegedly in breach of copyright has been referenced. As is the rules with any such DMCA claim if the claiming party fail to escalate the claim to the courts within two weeks of the initial notice (i.e. no actual legal motion against what has been claimed to be in breach of copyright) then the subject of said claim can return to its original position and resume sale. This is a fantastic piece of news for the sim racing community in general and Reiza Studios in particular as AMS is showing signs of being a significant step forward from previous titles produced by the studio. Indeed despite much speculation and suggestions from the sim racing community no official confirmation of the copyright claim and content claimed against has been released by either Reiza or the claiming party. It is advisable to not begin speculation on this subject again and just simply rejoice that the potential impact on both Reiza and the sim racing scene in general has been minimal and studios such as Reiza can continue releasing high quality racing tracks and vehicles for sim racing enthusiasts to enjoy. The whole episode has been an unfortunate blot on what is otherwise an enjoyable pastime for many people and I for one am glad that common sense has prevailed and we can all get on with what we enjoy most: Racing these wonderful machines.
