How to shutdown a reupload?
I made a flywheels garage mod and someone reuploaded it on gta5mods.net. How do I take this down?
Can someone help me?
Speak to the moderators of that website? That url goes nowhere though, I'm not sure how you expect anyone here to help you.
Unless of course you mean this site, gta5-mods.com? In which case just click report on the mod page
There are indeed a few websites that reupload content from GTA5-Mods.com. Since these aren't moderated by us, there is nothing we can do.
You might have some degree of success by contacting the website and requesting the content you own to be removed from their website, but it's no guarantee for success.
You might be able to integrate some kind of credit into your mod so it's at least clear where it originally has been uploaded to.
I don't think much can be done to prevent that from happening. Technically speaking, modders do not own their content if their source material is owned by someone else, unless the owner of the source material explicitly gives them ownership of their creations.
Unless the owner legally backs the content creaters, "owning a mod" is a fallacy. Rockstar doesn't give two shits about supporting modders so it is a faith based operation running within the modding community and legally speaking, any person can upload any file, anywhere and at the end of the day, they are actually only infringing on the rights of Rockstar by doing so.
Edit: the models are a slightly different story if made from scratch. I was mainly referring to the coding aspect of mods. However, it is kinda hard to take ownership of a GTA V mod created from bootlegged Forza models js 🤷
