Can someone provide this further to others community, so we can stop stealing of others community maps ?

http://pbfortress.com Stole our community custom made map !

I discovered that pbfortress.com has stolen our custom made map trade_event_obc_2.

This is not acceptable, cause i spent over 2 years on and develop and create this map for our servers. I have spend money on that map, i have payed diff. map creators to edit and develop that map to make it custom made for our [OBC] servers.

[OBC]Team Fortress Trade Event Server 1: 78.47.141.201:27015

I contacted playboy http://steamcommunity.com/id/playboy1/ who is responsible to post this map on servers pbfortress.com. He told me that he didn care that this was our map, and the fact that he is running it at pbfortress servers with our logos and cuxtom made events solutions for trade/events map didnt matter. He would not remove it after my wish.

so my question is:
Is it free for all to take others custom made map without asking? Using the logos of the other's clan on your servers and communety?

A © copyright map you have spend infinite ours on, and money from my personal account count at all? Especially with our clans and logos © tag all over the map? This map is © taged, precisely the reason that it is developed over time with diff map creators and plugin makers payed fee from my personal pocket.

I remember back in time when I had a similar experience with a clan of England "Asbo". I asked for permission for using the map, and got it approved by on of the Head Admins. But the map was so unstable that asbo they had problems too run it on they own servers. When they discovered we [OBC] managed and run it without Problems, they came into the server and created problems and believed in hindsight we had stolen mapet. The point is. I asked in advance. I did not use the map with ASBO logos on it. And when it arrived that it was a problem for them I used this map, so I quit and use it right away.

So how do you think i feel now?
After having spent over two years on this map, and build up this communety and with money from my own pocket. Cause i thought it would be nice and fun to run some servers for all the gamers our there.

There is a bitter aftertaste I see that other servers owners sit and stealing others' work, and how they hover and do not respect others in this systemmet at all. I'm sure there are a lot of comments on this and many, many different opinions on this.

But no matter how you twist and turn it, then this is simply stealing of others' products.

So i say again Mr. playboy http://steamcommunity.com/id/playboy1/
Remove that map from pbfortress servers. That map is not made for your servers and community, you didn't even ask me as the owner and the © copyright holder on this map to run it.

I'm having a problem with a guy now, his only positive my he has is an edit of mine.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=134134438&searchtext=

He DID reupload my original version a while back, and now he claims to have "made a new and better one from scratch". Even though I found many traces of my original in his. He only re-ordered the commands. Which he claims to have taken from the skyrim wiki site. If he did as he claimed, they would be in the same order as online (like how mine was) not all sccrambled about.

Some traces I found had to do with some word edits. I don't want to post them here in case he sees and changes it, but if he took them from the site, he wouldn't have the same text edits that I had made. He also just replaced my periods I used as separators and put spaces. He even used the same amount of enters between the end of one section, and beginning of the next. From the way he types, I doubt he's smart enough to even think about something that simple. If you want to see more of his nonsense, check my steam version of my mod. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=132868337&searchtext=
I had to upload this onto steam to make him happy, but he doesn't like the MCM version. Look at his comments, quite a few. Might report him for harassment if he keeps it up.

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/30737 My original mod, he copied the help menu version, not the MCM version.

Thanks for reading.
