Copypasting vs. GPL/CC 3.0 reuse or adapt – your thoughts


Recommended Posts

i keep my maps on my own website, so if someone alters the ones stored on tdm servers then there's always an unchanged copy elsewhere.

The announcement may happen in your own mapping thread or a new dedicated thread, but it should be visible to everybody."

 

I would assume a mere revoke of the access to missions to be a matching punishment for the offense.

 

Banning what has recently downgraded to a mere forum user does not make sense to me - unless someone took a moment to make a free New Year present to themselves.
