    I can’t find much information about this. But this doesn’t seem right (to me).

    <mod edit: links removed>

    Especially since the original is FREE.

    Selling content with copyrighted logos without permission is a no-go .
    But i highly doubt that those frenchies care about those copyrights.

    True that’s also the case. But even selling someone (CTDP) else’s work would go even further right?

    Don't waste your time with their shitty mods. You can find better for lower price / free.

    Wasn’t planning on doing so. Just a question about the legality and a possible heads up if there are former CTDP members here. They managed to decrease the original rfactor 1 quality.

    They were shouting at some other team about both sides having permission to convert it, its quite a mess for them right now

    Originally ASR were to convert the pack, but there was some kind of problem from what I read on Facebook. I only know the ASR side tho.

    ... He doesn't like the ACFL guys who are French and which are already known for ignoring copyright and common courtesy. Wasn't it them who deleted all their mods after we adviced them to change their business model? Not because of us but Formula One lawyers.

    I've not come across any permissions granted by the team for such a case. I'll query it internally.

    It was related to ACFL, therefore 'those', and i do not have any problems with Frenchmen in general or any other nationalities!
    It is easy to misread my comment if somebody want to do so!

    you could write "those guys" instead of "those frenchies" by example
    no ? :)

    i guess it is misunderstanding because of differents languages

    have a good day

    I can't find their post on the ASR Facebook page anymore, but basically it said that CTDP team had given them rights to convert the F1 2006 mod to AC, but then the rights were taken from them for some reason and given to ACFL instead, There was a lot of whining about that fact. Me personally would have liked a conversion done by ASR, they do good work.
