Well, it seems EA has ]quietly declared this position on the issue some more. Considering that the EA package is now snarfing meshes and nicking them for the Exchange, what does this tell you? DOWN WITH PAYSITES!

It's funny how Yakov (Beosboxboy) says "It is also in almost every instance a violation of the terms of use by mesh creators." because the mesh creator's terms technically could be considered a violation of EA's terms if they really want to push the issue. The EULA is included with the game, even if no one reads it. And EA has better lawyers. Tongue

If it came down to a fight, my money would be on EA.

And what, creating custom content and charging for it isn't a violation of EA's terms?!

People really need a swift kick up the arse and good reality check...

what is more funny is the fact that the creators think they own the meshes

Perhaps it's time to get more popcorn & soda ready? Looks like it's going to get real entertaining when the rude awakening comes. :twisted:

Let me be the first, just to have some fun.

"Dear EA/Maxis/Whatever,

You are stealing my mesh!! The mesh I extracted from YOUR game with SOMEONE ELSES tools, a mesh I have been selling for 3 bucks a download, damnit! And to make matters worse, I spent 3 hours modifying YOUR mesh into something that looks EXACTLY the SAME but it's MINE!

Damnit! I'll Sue!!!

Greetings from Nouk.


p.s. that skintone made of SOMEONE ELSES POSER SKINS I made, it's mine, I'll get a lawyer, take it off!"
