0.5% Of LBP Levels Modded

According to Sam over at the LittleBigPlanet Workshop, less than 200 levels have been moderated, making up less than 0.5% of all the levels published. He tells us that the majority of these were because they contained obscenities, fair enough, and the rest for copyright reasons. He says, by way of an example: "Oasis is the name both of a band and of a soft drink (at least in Europe), however any level using the title 'Oasis' would be absolutely fine right now unless it included music by Oasis the band, or the likeness of the drinks bottle."

I'm pretty sure this was completely blown out of proportion as well.

Of course it was blown out of proportion. It's a great game and each of the levels created and taken down were taken down with legit reasons. It's always the minority of users that make the most noise and thankfully more folks out there know that the minority of complainers are just simple idiots that were upset they got caught going against the user agreement for the game. I for one do not infringe on copyrighted materials or add penises to my levels and it turns out, my levels do not get pulled... Imagine that!

Does it matter if 0.5% Of LBP Levels Modded?

"If Sony releases a game and NOBODY buys it............"


Stop attacking the damn game already. Enough is a enough.

%.5 of 40,000 is 200...

That would be 40,000 user created levels and only 200 were taken down.

That's 40,000 in under a couple weeks. I would say that's pretty good.

Obviously it was xbot's blowing them way out of proportion. When i Browsed User levels i came across 15+ pages (I didnt get to the last page) of content. That is tremendous. Infact you really gotta depend on word of mouth to even get your played lol.

Read this and be enlightened about copyright...

LBP levels CAN infringe on copyright but it's unlikely due to several factors (non-commercial use, limited impact on the brand, doesn't draw much from the actual product).

i mean, thats facts!

A collective jumping of the gun by gaming media. Glad I didn't care.

Another reminder to people is that IDEAS are exempt from copyright - for instance if a particular platformer has a particularly cool idea, you can copy that in LBP as long as you don't use their characters and the exact likeness of the level.
