Then why not upload them to a deep web site if you are so scared?
Because they're not my mods to reupload. Nor would I want to. These are mods other people make, so it's their job to upload them to "the deep web", not ours.
If you would actually look at the laws it states that fair use is determined by the courts and it could mean anything.
Show me where any laws state "fair use could mean anything". That's obviously not true.
It is true that fair use is a defense in court, but in order for you to use that defense, you need to go to court. This rule change is all about preventing us from going to court in the first place, because going to court to defend such a case is extremely expensive and I certainly don't want to go to court to defend other author's rights to redistribute copyrighted content without permission. I wholeheartedly disagree with the practice of using copyrighted work without permission, so I definitely wouldn't be defending it.
Also I have intellectual property rights as well. I put hard work and time into creating these Radio Station mods.
If you created anything unique from this work, such as your own code or image assets for the mod, then you own the IP rights to those assets you specifically made yourself. If you did not, then no, you do not have any intellectual property. The time you spend organizing copyrighted music others have made into a mod does not make the music assets in the mod yours.
I don't need you or anyone else telling me it is illegal when it is not.
I feel like you do, because redistributing copyrighted assets without permission is illegal.
Like I said before I am not committing piracy because these mods are encrypted. It is up to the user to decrypt the music, which is piracy. The user is not using the mod as it is intended to be used, that is not my problem. I am operating under the law, I have not commited piracy.
Piracy is clearly defined as "the unauthorized use or reproduction of another's work". If you're redistributing copyrighted music against the explicit license for that music then yes, you are breaking the law.
I don't see the logic here, I have tons of mods just like this on Mediafire, but they fight for our rights there.
Can you show me where MediaFire are standing up for your rights and defending copyrighted music being uploaded to their service on your behalf, please? MediaFire comply with DMCA takedown requests and will suspend users who are found to be breaching it.
What makes you guys so special that you won't stand up for what is right.
It's not right, it's illegal. That's why I won't stand up for it.
Oh yeah and talking about toxic insults, I wasn't the one that called someone a Nazi, just saying.
I called an openly neo-Nazi user, with a neo-Nazi image as an avatar, a Nazi and banned them from 5Mods. If you disagree with that, honestly, why are you here? Please just leave.
