THANKS THIS IS GREAT

It's from a SimMaster, for whatever that's worth. But still, it's possibly the first hint of EA's stance on copyrights?

Obviously some person was complaining that his/her custom content had been "stolen" and uploaded to the Exchange. The post was removed before I could get to it, and this was posted:

I have deleted your thread. First off if you have a problem with another user on the boards calling them out on the boards is the wrong way to go about things. Second..whenever you upload things to the internet more than likely things will be copied. Once you upload it it no longer belongs just to you and there are no copywriting things on this site. If you upload it, it actually doesn't belong to you but to EA and EA gives the right for users to use their things.

Just think of it this way people say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so instead of being angry...feel flattered that someone copied you.

Just thought it interesting.

Wow. That's pretty....something. BUT, it's only coming from a SimMaster, who isn't like, the last official word from EA...But still. Wow.

Well, at least it is a valid view in EA's eyes, not just some wicked renegade thing...

There TOS states the same thing. Now it is just plain English without all the lawyer talk.

Do you think for one minute if this was not true that EA would let Pescado keep going. They have been telling people for forever this. They privately tell those putting up pay meshes that it is ok just dont advertise it. Now, they have just put it in plain English that even a china woman can understand. Nothing against china people mind you

Of course, but make no mistake, plain English counts for A LOT.

We should all charge people money for complaining their stuff was "stolen" on the Exchange.  We'd all be rich LOL  Cheesy

Intersting but, I can see people trying to twist the wording around now that I have been reading it multiple times

> after you upload it, implies to me that the creator of the item deliberately uploaded the item
> there is no copyright on this site - again sounds more specific about the exchange and not all sims .packages in general
> If you upload it, it actually doesn't belong to you but to EA and EA gives the right for users to use their things  -- again you are going to have people saying that only applies to the exchange

I it's a step in the right direction for sure, I hope they will have a make a clearer statement, as I can just see this being picked apart by creators.  :roll:
