MGM has ordered that a fan-made recreation of all of Goldeneye 007's 18 levels in Fary Cry 5 be pulled.
Yep. Exactly. I mean, I get it maybe if the person was profiteering from it? But this was just a fan-made thing, and they had to squash it. Yeesh.
I agree but technically MGM could argue that Ubi was benefiting from the maps. Legally though I wonder if he changed a few aspects about the map if they could avoid legal scrutiny
You mean Amazon as they hold the keys now.
Exactly, I don't think many people here know Amazon recently bought MGM. This is Amazon's doing.
YouTube ruined it. We need a new fair use standard. These corporations are why I’m no longer a pure free market guy. 20 year old game, f*** you lol. Burn.
At least the creator was able to backup the files.
Yeah because that custom map pack a couple thousand people knew about was sure driving game sales. It amazes me how anybody aligns themselves with these trash conglomerates.
Ever bought something from Amazon?
Yes, because if you limit yourself to only purchasing or consuming from places you agree with 100% you'd be living naked in the woods. Purchasing a product from somewhere doesn't equal allegiance nor does it signal agreement with every stance they take.
Wow, that's incredibly petty.
All he has to do now is say fuck you to Ubisoft and upload the PC version of the game to some torrent sites with Goldeneye 007's 18 levels included. In this way there would be no way in hell to stop that, yeah good luck with that 😁
Just rename it John Bone: Golden Ear. They'll never catch on
Dumb James Bond: Goldeneye 00-dumb Just take a page from the dumb Starbucks guy
Fuck off… this is corporate over reach. Who tf was profiteering? Did far cry 5 really garner any sales because one man slaved over 18 maps. Yeah mgm sure is missing out on all those potential n64 goldeneye purchases
UBI soft potentially profiting from anothers intellectual property. make sense
