Gridiron Thunder developer is now threatening to sue one of the backers for raising questions.
How can you sue someone for exposing the truth? How is that even possible? How can you sue someone because they uncovered your scam, it just doesn't make sense.
If I've learned anything here on N4G, it's the truth pisses people off.... alot.
It's a lot, not "alot".
^ True spelling.
Unless he has proof of the scam than it is slander. If he does have proof there is nothing for him to worry about. Quite frankly, I am not against this at all. People need to be held accountable for the things they say and do over the internet. I am sicking and tired of people posting harassing comments on the internet like they have every right to slander someone they don't even know. With that said, if this "Tyler" person isn't just lying than he will be fine so long as he can back up his claims. But if he was just making up some crap to slander this company for whatever reason than he is getting what he deserves. No one on the internet is truly anonymous, I hope this serves as a wake up call for people.
Nothing this Tyler said was untrue, he merely stated facts that supported the idea that this kickstarter campaign COULD be a scam.
Actually it would be libel. Slander is spoken.
I don't claim to know law, but first it's libel as others said. secondly to be guilty of it you have to KNOW that it is untrue, so each of us could go there and based on the hersay state the exact same comment and be free of any legal wrongdoing, but I would say based on the unlikelyness of the funds raised being legit that it is probably true.
What does any of that have to do with what actually happened? This guy told the truth, he hasn't lied about anything nor does he even have a reason to.
I'm sure that Edward Snowden would feel the same.
This just make OUYA look even worse. Going after some random person who is voicing his opinion. So on the NEWS when they MAKE STUFF UP, we can sue them for it, for lying to us on air ? Also, If Everybody on the internet, copies and then states the same thing he said, they would have to go after everyone. If you got 5 million people via the internet to all say the same thing tomorrow, it would be beyond overwhelming for them and they COULD NOT sue 5 million people. They also couldn't go after just one person, because then why only that one person and not everyone else. Lawsuit would get thrown out in a second.
For someone running with such an impeccable lawyer, they don't even know the difference between "slander" and "libel".
They are like dictators who go to war to distract the people from the devastating economic/health.... problems at home Does this mean I am going to be sued by Ouya for "slander". Bring it on
Oh go f**k yourself.. how greedy and cut up do you want to be?
I have AN OUYA. I am playing Dragon Warrior 1,2,3, and 5 for it because of the emulators. Once you figure everything out, it is a great little piece of hardware to have. They have a ps1 emulater on it. I will play Suikoden 2 on it someday. I do hope they put more android games on it. One thing though, you have to have a credit card to use it on THE FIRST DAY! I don't know if you have to have it online to play, I haven't tried to do it. But the retro section rules.
This is just mind-blowing to know that Tyler had to raise the voice about Kickstarter project being a scam, and now he's being sued for stepping away from comfort zone?!
Seems like this dude touched the hornets nest and they are pissed cause the truth can get out.
What so now forum comments can be taken as "slander"? I don't see how trying to call foul on a company which seems like it is scamming people can be in any way prosecuted. I would understand if this was coming from a rival company, but if the law seriously protects this project then the law is wrong, and the judges who created it ought to be ashamed. I don't see what is wrong at all with slander or libel if it is not done for the speaking party's financial gain.
this kick starter campaign looks very very fishy, I hope it gets taken down because it clearly looks like a scam
Well, the reply to "Tyler" seemed a little amateurish and not professional. It just seemed like it was coming from scammers instead of a company.
lol somebodies been watching a little too much TAKEN We will look for you. We WILL find you. And we will sue the pants off your butt. No one ever back that company. They are undeserving if they treat their backers with such disrespect.
Ouya is a failure that never lived up to the hype. Just cut your losses now and walk away.
