    Glad they did their homework when they pursued this endeavor.

    I expect that Atlas ("Altas"stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye) did not expect the RPCS3 team to cover their bases so well.


    This isn't a win exactly. It's a lesson. The lesson here is: If you want to play in the same field as the big leagues, always cover your bases.


    Too many out there don't go the extra mile to make sure that someone won't come in and smack them down with some plate of legal spaghetti. The RPCS3 team did their homework and were careful to do what the big leagues do when it comes to protecting their work - cover their bases.


    I can't state it enough. Modders, cover your bases. If you can't do that, you probably shouldn't be doing what you're doing because someone's going to get all legal up in your business. Protect yourself if you love your work.


    (The big companies have to do it against each other, too. It's dog-eat-dog out there. Beware of dog.)

    It's about time that SOMEONE started stopping the massively overextending reach that companies are making with the DMCA... other areas of industry look on wishing for all they are worth that they could abuse a USAian law to the same spectacular level all over the world in the way that many companies use the DMCA. The fact that businesses only use it against small groups or individuals is a really obvious pointer that this is very clearly abuse on their part.
