I was wondering if a flyff p server is illegal??
If it is illegal, is it illegal to when you are not making any money from it??

Yes it is Illeagel, BUT it is their fault for leaking out the infomation to the public about it ( they should get better hack shield and seccure their files ), in the way of making money from the private server is not illegal if your getting it as a donation for all your hard work towards your server :p i hope this information helps your and others to realise it is parshley illegal but it is not fully illegal

Nothing they can not do anything, not even sue you, as it is their fault they leaked the files and database infomation

wrong, having the files is an illegal act and using them to host an illegal service is another, if they were to decide to take action against you the case would never make it to court as you/the owner, would be in the wrong and wouldnt have a leg to stand on so to speak, you would probably get a hefty fine and possibly face a jail sentace as you dont have any rights to hosting the flyff service, the chances are if they were to take action if you have a dedi they would contact the provider and have words in which case your provider would suspend your hosting account, if you were hosting it from home then they would contact your isp who would then get in touch with you possibly cancelling your contract with them, receiving cash for hosting is also ilegall as your making a profit on copyrighted goods which you have neither rights nor permission to host legally, finally donations wouldnt count towards cash income as they are given by choice of the consumer in this case the players but i would say its only a matter of time before aeonsoft make an example of someone for haiving their files unliscensed and therfore ilegally or galanet make an example of someone for hosting an ilegall service to a region they have legally obtained rights to host to.

True. Emulator's aren't actually illegal, but they also aren't v14 (one was close but it got removed). I somehow doubt he was gonna use those though, seeing how the official files are floating around.

In case this wasn't already obvious, USING V14 OFFICIAL FILES OR V11 OFFICIAL FILES IS ILLEGAL. THEY ARE COPYRIGHTED FILES AND YOU DON'T OWN THE RIGHTS TO THEM. YOU CAN GET SUED BY USING THEM (unlikely, but possible).

There, I said it. In caps. Everybody get it now?

The official files are in a slightly illegal but all the v14 files are updates to the v11 and the v11 are now all legal as they are old files not been used to a few years, but the v14 files that are out there are NOT completely illegal as all people have done is adapted them to be the v14 with all items nothing more, also you could never get sued if you where smart enough to make your server copyright free (meaning no one can sue you for it as they can not get past your copyright( also meaning that Gala-Net and Aeonsoft could be using your files ( smart I know )

Also Gala-Net and Aeonsoft wouldn't take action as Flyff is a grate game and has millions of players and hundred of thousands on every second so there would be no point sueing people, also Private Servers are a good way for Gala-Net to see what people would like to see in their game and helps them get a little experience with their older players having the experience to make and hold the server and could get the right to become a GM in the actual game and dont say that is incorrect as it is true

and they check Forums like this everyday to see the new posts, they only hate that people post videos on you tube with info on setting it up ( meaning if you dont know how to dont bother doing it ) so before saying they would sue you or have a go at you for it dont as they would of stopped the posting on these forums.
