    So I'll fill you in. RaGEZONE / Nexon / FT and a court case.

    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;
    http://ragezone.com/legal/nexon/lloyd%20korn.png

    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.

    Regards.

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

    RIP RaGEZONE's MapleStory Section. You will be remembered.

    Edit: I like how Lloyd Korn points out shitty releases. At least point out good ones. The only good ones there were BubblesDEV and BrazilMS files.

    This is due to the fact that this is from before the section went away like 2 years ago. Ah yes, the link to BubblesDev. No wonder Generic kept saying I was a reason why RZ lost this section.

    edit:
    I don't see how any of them aside from BubbleDev were private server development. They were CMS, so possible web development, and not private server development...

    I don't think moving the section to a different forum is going to solve this problem. Oh well, I shouldn't be complaining since it all matters to you, you'll get in trouble if you would keep this all running so there's nothing much to do. However, starting fresh was one of the dumbest explanations in my opinion but now I do understand that the Maplestory development section has come to an end.

    That's not the DMCA from the current problem. That was an old one in which they used slander.

    Hey, if all his DMCA's are bull and he says that he swears to all of them under penalty of perjury, couldn't someone take advantage of that to open a lawsuit against him?

    Here is the latest email in regards to ongoing negotiations (Which involves me).

Please tell Mr. James that if he wishes to avoid a lawsuit, then he should immediately shut down the MapleStory section of RageZone and contact us to discuss settlement. If Mr. James fails or refuses to do so, Nexon will have no alternative but to commence a lawsuit against him.
    Given I'm not an American citizen I wonder if they would attempt to extradite me. Please take into consider the following line;

    Nexon are intending to sue every single one of who post here, all of you. They want to take your personal assets. So for those who told me I was selfish and only cared about myself, hope you can at least see sense.

    This sucks. They should be shutting down Game Killer. I understand PS are illegal but Hacking is worse

    Thank you MentaL for telling us what had happened. Now, I'm not so angry.

    +like.

    I'm actually surprised that NEXON is lying by saying we stole any source code from them. LOL. Anyhow, this does seem like a tight spot for you. At this point, I, myself wouldn't know if I'd save the MapleStory section at all. If you had the money and such, you probably would win your case, but in the end, is it worth all the money?

    Re: So I'll fill you in. RaGEZONE / Nexon / FT and a court case.

    PS,

    Nexon are also wanting physical money to compensate for everything that has happened within the private server development scene, compensation towards all your hard efforts and work. Nexon believe it's their right for them to be payed for every single members, non members, lurkers, leachers and whomever works towards building up any public source code as created by you. Thats right, your work, effort and time and they want to be rewarded by being paid for your own legal work.

    ---------- Post added at 04:51 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:49 PM ----------

    Update;

    Realistically I could more than likely put a court case in against Nexon myself for all the slander, false accusations and previous extortion of my old hosting provider (DedicatedNow). I feel violated against my human and legal rights plus all the stress it has caused me. Further more, Nexon have also avoided my terms and conditions via my policy.
