from article comments:

It is DMCA logic. Because you broke the terms of service, your license was immediately revoked. Because your license to use the software was revoked. When you create a video of yourself playing you are copying the stream without having a license to play. Congrats, copyright infringement.

The little dipshit counternoticed a DMCA claim on youtube. Taking him to court is literally the next step in that process. Funny how that key information is missing from the article.

Not sure why they used copyright as a thing, and I'm not for suing a kid for this, but anyone who cheats/mods an ONLINE multiplayer game deserves a pineapple up the ass pointy end first. Cheat the hell out of single player, but you don't have the right to an auto aimer against other players.

Still, ban the fucker, don't sue him.

And what this will accomplish, besides one family life destroyed?

I bet that Russian an Chinese cheaters must be terrified. kappa

So the only logical reason for this is pushing law limits in favor of corporations by establishing precedents like this. I hate cheaters but the game is about copyright. And we getting into place where we have things lend to us and we can be sued for anything.

A user having their software license revoked and then continuing on to use the software is now an act of copyright violation. No license, no legal use.

  • Use someone else's iphone = copyright violation for not owning that copy of iOS
  • Sit at someone else's Windows or Mac computer and use it = copyright violation for not owning that copy of iOS or Windows

Revoking a license for something you purchase shouldn't be permitted. Terminating online services, ok.

And it can't be, in most countries of the world. In India for example it is not illegal to use pirated software of any kind. It's only illegal to sell and distribute them. You can pirate whatever game/software you want online and the company can go shove it.

This whole illegal use is a USA thing.

Wrong. A license is a contract. You breach contract, you lose license.

Then they should be immediately cut off, not allowed to continue to use it...

I wonder what they think they'll get for suing a 14 year old in this way? We should find out who their kids are and trick them into multiple lawsuits that they are too young and stupid to understand.

Holy fuck a judge with common fucking senes, also EPIC has gone full Jew, who the fuck thinks it's a good idea to bring some one to court over cheating, what dose EPIC consider a cheat? I know I will never buy a EPIC game again, I don't want to get sued for possible cheating when I never cheated in the first place but I don't have access to the servers so how can I prove it.

They went full jew when they called their game early access but still demand you pay them 9.50 a season to actually experience the game to its fullest and on top of that sell $20 cosmetics. For a game they themselves say isnt a finished product.

I don't understand why people put up with this. I hate to virtue signal (heh!), but this is the reason that I play Free/Open games rather than Big Software nightmares. In happier times we'd have branded this sort of behavior as video game Nazism.

NAZI NAZI NAZI NAZI

Fuck little cheating queerboys who are so insecure that they need to cheat in order to feel any kind of validation in their lives because they're too stupid and cowardly to carry their own fucking weight. Fuck cheaters.

Solo player cheats, or local cheating against friends offline, sure. If you want to play a game that someone else made with features you want in it without their permission, why don't you make your own fucking game? Or play a game that allows that sort of thing. Big title games aren't like a car you license them but you don't own them. Deal with that reality or don't play them.

There's no fucking way I can ever do anything about this myself, but why don't cheaters all come together and make a game they can all cheat at and play that?

It's not that I disagree with you, but it's the tone and the volume at which you're overreacting that I think undermines your point. Better a cheater than a Puritan. Remember, if you're an American you're the descendent of people who stole half a continent from British/French/Spanish. All of us are cheaters, after a fashion.

This makes me fucking livid. Why is there little to no mention of this anywhere? Where are the hordes of angry people up in arms about this like there are when EA so much moves a muscle?
