I'm sorry to tell you, but a cover song by a tribute band played in a pub with no entry fee is still infringing on the rights of the copyright owner, unless the band was given explicit permission by the copyright owner.
Congrats to you too for stepping up. Respect!Hi. To make this work, not only their name has to be mentioned, but everyone needs to do a video about it.
These guys operate in shadows and use underhanded tactics because it works when the targets are sparse. Naming them publicly makes them lose all the power they have
how about RD put in a sim dream mods downloads section where their mods could be downloaded for free? Just take Them out of business... I guess it would be pretty easy for RD to obtain the necessary proves of originality from all the modders who have been ripped?
They'll have to rename themselves? Good. That's downtime they have. To rename, to get things up and running and work on their SEO to get anywhere close they have now.It's all well and good getting the pitchforks out but will it solve anything? They'll only rename themselves and do it again and again and again, what it needs is proper Legal Action but that's up to the Devs of the Sims in question, but can they be arsed with all the effort? The costs? The hassle?
I'm by no means saying stop the rage and attack on them, but don't expect any drastic change, if they do eventually stop someone else will come along and do it in their place.
Happening in the Flight Sim world too, unfortunately these arseholes exist.
