Ziff Sets Us Straight On Stolen Street Fighter IV Pics

Earlier today, Kotaku posted about the plight of "tiny Brazilian blog" Blogeek, who, as you may remember, posted a pair of screen shots of Street Fighter IV yesterday. Amazingly, the site scooped 1UP to its own exclusive, claiming it had received the screens and details on the Capcom fighter from an "anonymous source." The site's owner, Douglas Pereira, wrote Kotaku this morning, crying out for help. "Ziff Davis is going after me. They're chasing me," he lamented. It was very heart-wrenching.

Sounds like EGM and 1UP were quite justified in their legal "picking on" of Pereira and Blogeek. He's an EGM Brazil freelancer and has now admitted to swiping the pics from Ziff-Davis' own media servers. EGM editor-in-chief Dan Hsu, who says ZD has the IP logs of the transgression to back it up, explains.

Kotaku has less journalistic integrity than a Soviet newspaper

Since they're not even arguments, they're all based on thin air.

if this game was on exempel wii,then we all would say,it has sh!tty graphic(Becouse we all know that wii is sh!t!)
But now everybody is like its the next-gen fighting game.

But that's me.

o wow now they want to fight over a pair of pics.. I wonder how will they fight over some gameplay footage!!!

Azurite3605d ago

They fight about illegal actions done to them.

HeartlesskizZ3605d ago

I understand that but still think is not worth the fight

those pics were supposed to be displayed first on their magazine.

it would have helped promote sales of the magazine.

now that the hype has died down, this is revenue lost.

they have a legal case.

the guy stole a password and stole copyrighted material without permission. you wouldn't be saying this ain't worth it if it was you who paid for such content.

I see where you coming from but when you buy content of a game so hype you must keep it very safe if you really care about selling you mag plus now days the word "EXCLUSIVE" have lost its meaning if you know what I mean.. but yea if they want to take this to court o well..after all they are the ones loosing their time
