Request to remove referrences to copyrighted material from MCCODES.COM

Recommended Posts

I have recently discovered that some of my works are being referenced as being part of your website.

My works were intended for the audience that is MWG, not MCCODES.COM.

I have neither given permission, nor released - some of - my works under a copyright license that would make this form of referencing acceptable.

Links:

http://mccodes.com/mwg_freemods.php?page=1

http://mccodes.com/mwg_freemods.php?page=3

[ ... more, which I can't be bothered to look for, yet ... ]

I personally request that all references to my copyrighted work is removed from MCCODES.COM within an appropriate time period(48 hours).

On another note, affiliates of MCCodes keeps on claiming that this forum(MWG) is not the official grounds of MCCodes.

I find it highly unethical for you guys to take - in essence, our - content and displaying it on MCCODES.COM.

When I first signed up, I still remembering the T&C's, which firmly stated that no information will be given to third-parties.

This, now includes MCCODES.COM.

They are links to the thread on makewebgames, and your modifications have not been taken elsewhere. I believe the sign-up agreement (at least the one I agreed to when I signed up was written this way) allows all work to be referenced though links with credit given to the author.

I totally agree with Spudinski. At no point did a member of McCodes staff ask if it was ok to link my work on their website.

Rather than make a different post requesting the same thing I also didnt agree to you using my name on your website and referring to my work. Please remove the links from mccodes.com

http://mccodes.com/mwg_freemods.php?page=7

http://mccodes.com/mwg_freemods.php?page=10

and any others that may be on there.

No information is given to third parties.

MCCodes.com MWG module sync page (http://mccodes.com/mwg_freemods.php) simply indexes MWG and shows results appropriately. Just like how any search engine does.

Looks like that "Reminder" post did more harm than good, as far as the feelings of many forum members towards MCC. :)

The reminder thread (http://makewebgames.io/showthread.php/42518-Reminder) is a reply to Alain's thread (http://makewebgames.io/showthread.php/42510-V3-delayed) where he implied MCCodes is obliged to provide press release announcements officially on MWG. MWG and MCC stands as 2 different entities. Hence, this lead me to write and post the relationship reminder of MWG and MCC.

Cheers.

No I never implied you are obliged to do anything, I just found it a shame you don't do it. You and I know we do those things as an hobby, but even if we was real companies we are never obliged to inform our customers about our plans. However I personally consider it more than a good practice ;-)

Also, even on search engine you can request to remove your site from the indexing. So it should be possible on your site too even if I'm actually totally unsure if that could be a breach of any copyright as you don't copy anything but just refer to it.

Ill take your reply CB as a refusal to remove the links as requested. Therefore I have removed the content instead.

It confuses me to why you purchased MWG in the first place and why you still own it. Other than taking advantage of the new members that flow in who do not realize your lack of support or involvement on the forum.

I would suggest you change the info on mccodes.com community page to show that you do not get involved in the community on MWG nor provide announcements, support , bug fixes, modules as per your reminder.

ColdBlooded,

Your two posts contradicts each other.

In the first, you say that MWG and MCCODES.COM is two different entities.

Search engines are also third-parties, and allow you to remove any content from therein; you aren't, and that's why I'm starting to have a problem with you.

How can you say that MCCODES.COM isn't a third-party when you say that, and are pulling content from MWG straight into MCCODES.COM?

Maybe I should follow a similar approach as you here...

Seeing as you so happily told everyone that MWG and MCCODES.COM isn't liked in any way, I can stand by my grounds when saying that you a breaching this website's T&Cs, and my individual copyright.

But, before I send a formal complaint to your hosting provider(Glowhost), I request of you to again, remove any references of my copyrighted content on MWG, from MCCODES.COM.

@a_bertrand: This is slandering my good name, that's why I'm having a fit.

It's pretty much the same as saying, "Google made this modification for MCCodes.com", the legal results will be the same.

At the end of the day, it isn't such a major case. But morally, this is theft.

Just put like this - I can do the same thing mccodes is doing then.. - make up a site, if you will mccodesfreemods.com and refer all of them from here to there??

Mccodes and MWG will freak about it if I do I am betting, and this is when you people at mccodes will realize what copyright exactly means even when referring a link, without proper communication between the mod creator /owner of it. You have said over and over that MWG is not associated with mccodes.com, but yet that is really contradicting, when you link mods from here on your page and have the tab be called "Marketplace" ..That in it's own speaks for itself...

Have respect for the community members and advise them one on one that their mod is being refereed on mccodes.com that can be like slandering ones work, where the mod creator/owner dislikes mccodes professionalism or ethics, (which mccodes should respect)... I for one don't mind it, however I do not like how it was done, and no one mailed me, I do not check mccodes.com site regularly, and the announcements on there I never have read, I checked that site once, then used it to report a few games, that is the only use I had for it... I have not seen no announcement of them referring until a member on here made this thread. Because I come on here to help people, that is what this community is for, not to rip someones work off and then refer it to their site, to make that site look better, when it may of been going to chits before the referring links were put up....Just saying... It could be a tactic to get more profits by linking and this part of it mccodes do not see or care what those copyright owners to the mods are trying to get at, they just want to disrespect their efforts on here, and claim referring their mods on their website...
