When you get DMCA'd

PostPosted by Epicmarkvan » Fri Apr 28, 2017 10:25 pm

DMCA'd over content for a game filled with content ripped from other games that are copyrighted because this guy ripped models and characters from SWTOR and wants his Gmod creator cummies.

DMCA Takedown Notice on your item
Valve has received a DMCA copyright take down notice directed at your postings on Steam, at [url]http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=839560454[/url]

A copy of the notice is set forth in full at the end of this email. 

Johnathon Mason alleges that he is the owner of the copyright in the Star Wars content and that publication of the Star Wars content  without his authorization infringes his rights.   

As a result of this complaint we have temporarily removed your posting from Steam as required by law. 

Valve follows the procedure set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The DMCA is a United States copyright law that governs online service provider liability in case of a claim of copyright infringement.  When we receive a DMCA notice, Valve must take down the allegedly infringing copyright materials; otherwise Valve could be subject to a claim of copyright infringement. 

Counter-Complaint Process

If you feel that the DMCA notice filed against you is inaccurate, Valve can reinstate your posting on Steam only upon receipt of a DMCA-compliant counter-statement from you, containing all of the following information listed below.  Please note; upon receipt of your counter notice, the claimant is allowed 10 business days to bring legal proceedings against you.  If we do not receive notice of such proceeding within that period of time, then we will reinstate your content.

1. Identification of the material that Valve removed or disabled access to, and the location at which it previously appeared.

[Infringing Link]

2. Your statement, made under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that Valve removed that material due to mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.

I, __________________, hereby state, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that Valve removed that material due to mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.

3. Your name, complete mailing address, and telephone number.

Name
Mailing Address
Telephone number

4. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of your local federal District Court (or, if you are located outside the United States, the federal District Court for Western Washington, where Valve is located), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the notice of alleged copyright infringement (or an agent of that person).

I, __________________, hereby consent to the jurisdiction of U.S. District Court in which my home (identified above) is located, (or, if I live outside the United States, the federal District Court for Western Washington, where Valve is located). I further promise that I will accept service of process from the person who provided the notice of alleged copyright infringement (or an agent of that person).

5. Your physical or electronic signature.

/Signature/, digital signature, or a scanned copy of this statement with your handwritten signature. This signature indicates your willingness stand behind the statements you make.

If you have legal questions about this notification, you should retain your own counsel. Valve cannot provide legal advice.  If you have any other questions about this notification, please let me know.

Thanks for your attention.

Mark's Star Wars Content - 2
A Workshop Item for Garry's Mod
By: Fat Retard
Just some content for Star Wars that I couldn't find anywhere else other than some jerks who had code advertising their server all over it. Not mine, I didn't create it, so feel free to use it for whatever you want.
Contains repackaged content.
 
ORIGINAL CONTENT
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=712419489
and
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=712424852
etc. Large quantities of my content, and others, can be found within this repack.

Clearly states on all of them that the content cannot be repacked.

This is why the GMod community is dying, because people like this. I would've been happy to use his addon if he wouldn't have coded a message to pop up in the server every two seconds advertising his community, but of course he needs his ego stroked.
