bunch o' downloads


Recommended Posts

That's warez unless you have permission of the copyright owner of those files.

you always ask the mod dev if you can dl his mod?

That doesn't need to be asked, cause the mod put the file there in the first place then you got permission to download it. But this is a much diffrent thing, this guy post someone else mod on another site, that isint allowed unless he actually has permission from the one who has copyrighted it.

And maybe the mod developer doesn't want his mod linked on this forum ? So he technically needs permission to post the file here. Windows made "Windows Vista Beta1" and now many sites put Vista up for download and that's warez.

I know no one cares about internet laws around here, but it's diffrent rules on diffrent contries, but if the guy lives in same country as you and you break the rules by putting download links to his files, and you don't have permission or use his pictures then he has the rights to sue you :P .

i disagree..

you're still downloading it from the site where the owner has already had permissions...

it's not like i downloaded the files, compiled them differently and hosted them myself and put up links to my host..

am i right?

You're very wrong man. The Windows Vista download isn't a good example. Vista is being HOSTED on those places without MS's permission. These are just links to the mods, and the files aren't actually being hosted on the MTA server. There's a bit of a difference. Linking to these mod sites is just like saying, "Here's a good mod site *link here*" There's no difference really, except for the fact that he's posting some links to mods that he likes. The files are hosted on a server that he agreed to have them on, and they are being distributed on that site. You still have to go there to download them. These are just links to those areas on that site. Plus, this isn't a commercial product, these are freely distributed mods.

You're logic is clearly flawed.

Okey you're right, If he isin't hosting the files he isin't breaking a law. I don't know if he hosting it or someone else do :-P I just say if he does host it then he's breaking it otherwise he has right to post links to it.

But if you upload files to you're site, i mean clan site or whatever and you upload them you gotta ask the creator or copyrighter of those files. even if they're free you cant put them there unless you put a link from you're site to their download archive :P
