Cease and Desist Letter from Activision
Last night I got an email from some Lawyer Agency from United States of America to Cease and Desist “modding”, “modded lobbies” and “Modding Services” of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.
I don’t quite understand what modded lobbies? We haven’t even released anything regarding to Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, so I contacted a top-notch lawyer who already told me what to respond.
DMCA doesn’t apply in Finland nor does any United States of American laws. Also European Union’s highest court has already ruled Reverse Engineering legal in entire Europe. [source]
Like you guys know we are against piracy (Those at least who have been banned in the forums), never broken any EU/Finnish laws and we take no money from any mods (Which this C&D claims and want accounting of profits we made from these mods).
Is Activision so poor that they need money that we have made, problem is that we haven’t even made any money.
I will carry on my research on Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Obfuscation to resolve performance issues as that I am legally allowed to do on my own computer and like always we will not release any content that has copyrighted work of others.
