Lithuanian Webmaster Re-Distributes Mods

Yesterday, I was informed by him about a Lithuanian website offering a wide range of mod and tool downloads from the community. These downloads are
  • Even if you don't care whether somebody else distributes your mod, you should always remember that people will blame you if their computer gets infected through your mod, and that an innocent user's computer will be ****ed using your files as a vehicle.

Not to mention that some of us would rather have users download the latest versions of the mods, not some years-old one. (The TD version up there is a RA2-version from 2002...any questions?)

 

As a reaction, DCoder will contact his host by e-mail, requesting the site to be taken down. He will write a Lithuanian intro, and each of the affected developement teams is invited to leave a personal note stating their wish for action in this or the Revora thread, to be included in the mail as well. The more of us demand action, the higher our chances are to get the ripper taken down.

 

List of downloadable software:

Red Alert 2 Map editor

Red Alert 2 TibЕd

...these are the actual, copy-pasted download-designations from the site; if your mod's name is ****ed up, welcome to the club.

If your mod is on there and you want the page taken down, reply with a formal request to the host either here or at Revora.

 

Statement for inclusion by Renegade:

Dear executives at meka.lt,

 

while I do support the distribution of my work outside my personal webspace, the version downloadable at http://www.jaguar.meka.lt/redalert2/ is not only vastly outdated and obsolete, but also labeled wrong - this provides a twofold attack on my personal honor and my intellectual property, as the version downloadable is either

a) _not_ recognized as mine, due to the wrong name, making it essentially a plagiarism, or

B) it _is_ recognized as mine, but, through the fact that it's old and obsolete, creates an image of bad quality in my work, turning this into a case of libel against me.

Neither is acceptable.

 

In addition, even though I, personally, would have had no problem with the user responsible distributing a correctly labeled, current version of the mod, I nevertheless doubt other Mod Leaders have taken a similar stance toward their distribution channels. As such, the actions of this user can only be seen as large-scale software piracy and violation of intellectual property rights.

 

I hereby firmly request the immediate suspension of the account in question, until I and the other rights holders have reached an agreement with the webmaster about the terms of further distribution of our software.

 

Sincerly,

Charly "Renegade" Kiendl

http://www.ra2.mums.lt/ - short address for the page

http://www.jaguar.meka.lt/redalert2/ - actual address of the page

It loads slow as hell, if at all, but if you get through, simply click on "mods" and you get the list.

Pretty crazy. These are the kind of people who create websites cause they have nothing to do, so they host random, outdated, and sometimes useless junk.

I just registered, for this... In a way, it's a shame that that site's down, because I enjoyed the Animalz mod and mine got fried. :(

 

I've searched the net and I can't find it, anywhere. :(
