Today I received an email from my host regarding the content on my website. Below is a snippet.
We have recently received notification regarding the unlicensed use of copyright material on the montycarlo.com.au website.
The complaint relates specifically to the material displayed within the Home, Play and Database sections. It is alleged that these sections contain copyrighted code, artwork and protected trademarks.
This notification indicates breach of the held Acceptable Use Policy.
We therefore are required to issue an official take down notice.
It seems that Nexon has made a move on my supportive content that compliments their own - a dishonorable move, however it's clearly within their rights and therefore I must comply. It is unconfirmed as to if Nexon is the origin of this complaint, however what other party would instigate this scenario? I have requested my host to forward the complaint to me for lulz.
A Pirate's Fury will cease to run from the 22nd of December 2010 at 5pm. You have 24 hours to play your last games of it.
There will be no more Maplestory Flash games from me. There are a lot of pet peeves I have with the development cycle of a Maple game and the lack of sponsor option due to copyright infringement is highly unappealing. I'm moving towards indie development on the Android Platform.
Cheers guys. You made it worth it.
