Right, this is how it stands. RaGEZONE does not host, distribute or provide illegal content for Nexon and MapleStory. The work that is here is all made by every single one of you. Under international copyright law and EULA generally when you play a game you are signing a contract in which takes away your rights to create an emulator and I've never played MapleStory, ever.
Nexon are attempting to rid this section from here under the bullshit argument that we are misusing their copyright. I can tell you that papers and court proceedings are up in the air right now and we are trying our best to resolve it for everyone. Nexon claims that the code shared by users is copyright code, also Nexon claimed that we also released hacks and so forth numerous years ago in which our ignorant previous host decided we had to remove offending content (but of course we did not and also in a legal term is considered slander), you can check it yourself here;
On a personal level with FranTech and Fran especially I consider us friends. He has been with us for many years so I also wanting to protect his assets. It appears Nexon is using bully tactics to get rid of us despite us not really breaking any laws. We do not host nor distribute any infringing material. In the event evidence to state that we are using copyright code exists I would 100% gladly remove of the offending material.
Take note of; Server emulator - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
here are cases where a game creator has effectively shut down private game servers by threatening lawsuits
due to obvious copyright violations, such as offering the client for download or offering downloads of modified files from the original game package, or perceived copyright violations, such as simply offering an "unlicensed" version of the game, which may or may not constitute actual infringement such as the infamous General counsel of Nexon America, Lloyd Korn in the MapleStory private server development [MapleStory Global].
Nexon are after me, it's that simple. Despite me not being involved in the development one single bit plus with all the legal jargon in the middle, its messy to say the least. IF anyone has any valid comments to contribute then let it be heard.

EDIT # 1
In an effort to secure everyone from any future hassle (such as handing over ip's and more). I've removed the WZ edits.
