Well Cliffy B. Has just unbanned "EpicJon" from the UTIII forums along with giving an update to the whole incident.... According to cliffy the maps are most likely a coincidence since the new map is a remake of Koos Galleon and goes on to say that in the past they've not only given credit to map creators but also paid them for their maps if they were officially released in Epic's games. Also don't forget that the User created map was only released about a month -> a month and a half ago.... a map that was made for an official release from Epic would have been in development far longer then that.
"Not just "with permission" but we've actually gone out and paid folks to license their maps when we've included them in one of our bonus packs or within one of our games.
I've got to catch a plane early in the morning but I told Jon we'll look into it and get him a response in the next day or two."
Swap Cliffy B w/ Mark Rein.
