Copyright is a legal right that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution. This is usually only for a limited time. The exclusive rights are not absolute but limited by limitations and exceptions to copyright law, including fair use. A major limitation on copyright is that copyright protects only the original expression of ideas, and not the underlying ideas themselves.
We have to just keep adding phrases to server language blacklist to prevent them from coming back.
Pretty annoying, not least that their own users are being cheated, lol
Is there no way someone via external means can forcefully shut down their domain and hosting? Can't something be done, legally or illegally? Surely Scawen can leverage off having some kind of right in owning LFS and its assets and those fiddly copyright stuff that the tweak domain in question is breaching..
We've written to the hoster and the domain register. I think it was the hoster simply ignored us and the register told us they would only respond to a letter from a lawyer.
Basically they just want money from the people who pay them, and have no care or concern if their services are being used for criminal purposes. It's the same story with that scam we recently noticed. Their hoster has not replied to repeated mails. They just aren't interested, they prefer to keep the customer unless somehow forced.
To do anything that would have any effect would be a lot of time, effort and money, without any guarantee of success. Even if shut down, the criminals would simply set up again with a new name. They would have to be locked up but seriously, that isn't going to happen. No-one really gives a shit if some game developers are losing some money due to pirates.
Since reporting the host and domain registrant doesn't help, perhaps those users who have been scammed to "pay to unlock banned account" can post the Lfsp bank account, bank, Paypal or other details here.
Then someone can officially report and get that account and bank holder frozen for fraud or something to stop all this nonsense. Make it a legal case this way, without the trouble of court fees or a lawyer to challenge the domain host.
Better still if someone doxxes the account holder, that way he himself will get police treatment for the fraud he is doing...
Could LFS not run the words in an MSO packet through a blacklist before it prints it to screen? It could then do some combination of blocking the message; logging the IP; kicking/banning the user; notifying you for verification; etc.
may be no need to react to lfspro now?
How many users online there is?
One of reason why LFS Pereulok is closed it was big online. "We" grew and become big. A little much more time then online in official servers may be less then at LFS Pereulok online. This is wrong.
