A pair of long-time costume modders for the PC versions of the Street Fighter games have been hit with a DMCA takedown notice by Capcom.
Oh yes, this is exactly what Capcom needed to do, give more reasons to hate them.
I am actually on Capcoms side here. Those guys were not supposed to be selling custom mods behind a paywall. It made the whole SF modding community look bad.
Capcom just salty they can't lock the costumes behind their own Dlc paywall.
Wow... who's being the bigger douche? Capcom, or the modders?
Interesting isn't because this will always happen free speech and IP protection are already enemies.
As much as I hat to say this and I think I puke a little in my mouth but capcom is right on this one those wasn't FREE mods they was charging for them.
Yea hate to say it but capcom was right on this.
Stupid. Just go back to not releasing games on PC. Stuff like mods come with the PC platform. That's the point of an open platform. Save your lawyers the trouble and focus on consoles if that's your position.
Modders charging for content is what they were stopping, they are not shutting down mods, just those seeking to make a profit off of their game.
My mistake then. I still don't have an issue though. If they are making costumes good enough to sell and not using existing assets I (as capcom) would just ask for a small percentage of the sales.
You clearly don't understand what happened here.
You have been waiting to say that huh? It doesn't happen often so enjoy lmao.
I agree with you. Capcom shoud make games only for consoles.
Those modders were probably releasing more new content for the game than Capcom, lol.
It's cool. They were just nude mods for other pc guys to wack off to.
You can't sell costume mods, that's Capcom's bread and butter right there!
Capcom needs to eject the fossils from its upper management positions. It's not 1960 anymore, and that old school thinking in business today, just doesn't work anymore. SE can follow suit. All this aggressive BS against your fan base is just downright stupid. Also, DMCA needs a serious f**kin overhaul already.
For anyone that would like to read what the owner of the modding forum had to say I'll post it right here. Just be warned there is some colorful language used, nothing terrible. http://imgur.com/a/9OjOl
