Makes me laugh all the Obama hate, when you got someone like Trump who is only doing his best to line his pockets, and how some people think "Govment" is big bad and evil so lets give all the powa to them nice caring corporations cause they sure have your best interests at heart......lolzScotchUp said:Makes me laugh after 8 years of Obama, any law no matter what it is called can't be trusted when Government is telling us how great it will be for America. Keep Government out of internet!
BS they could have had their attorney sends a letter to the mom, I mean if they have the info to sue him then they have to info to do this, explained what was going on, threatened to sue etc etc like how most shit is done before heading straight to court to sue.SEANMCAD said:wrong...They were not legally obligated to file a lawsuit. In fact, one is never legally obligated to file a lawsuitHave you taken the time to read all the posts explaining how Epic had no choice but to file suit because that is how the law is written.....Asm0deus said:Same thing can be said about the company, are they too chickenshit to go after the real culprits hurting them?Being stupid still means being accountable for actions.Asm0deus said:It's called being a stupid kid. Guessing you walked on water as child and never got in trouble for anything.Talonsin said:At the end of the day even if Epic loses the suit, that kids parents will have to pay legal fees and you can bet after that, they will be all over that tool of a son they have not to post any more stupid videos.
You have to be pretty arrogant and entitled to refuse to take down a video of you cheating in a video game.
Thing is most kids dont get sued for this kind of thing which is far different than saying the parents shouldn't be on their arse for it.
The kid brought the suit on himself by having that YouTube account contest the DMCA takedown. Another consequence of bad choice. Maybe if he had learned that lesson earlier he would have made a better choice this time and not be in the predicament he's put himself in.
There should be accountability for actions. They should also be appropriate for the age, damage done (if any), and remorse.
Sure he should be held accountable, I agree with that so I wish people would stop implying that I am saying he should get a huggle and a stern warning, but its damn sad people nowadays think that means suing a 14 year old is the appropriate action.
Total waste of the courts time and our tax dollars.
And people wonder why the USA is going to hell in a handbasket.
They have two choices in response to a DMCA dispute - do nothing and let people run over their IP, or file a lawsuit because that is the only option when responding to a DMCA takedown request dispute.
So I'm not wrong, you are. Nananananaaaaa.
I would rather they close up shop or find another way to stay afloat. I would rather lose access to a bunch of games I play while the industry readjusts itself and we can get back to decent mmo that are not just peddling the same ole junk.Beyorn said:I hate loot boxes as well but this makes me worried for some of the smaller mmo I play (Secret World, LoTRO). Do you think this will finally make them close up shop ;(? I would think a large chunk of their money comes from loot boxes.
I would much rather put up with loot boxes if it means I can play the mmos I love.
