Topic: Off-topic / Current copyright laws are moronic and suffocate creativity

The chances are that if an artist can claim royalties from distributing their art through various different forms of media (other than the one originally intended), they’re going to do that.

The kind of situations you raise only become a problem when the original work is not given credit. Regardless of what you think of the behaviour of artists who restrict the use of their content, using that intellectual property without their permission is piracy.

There are some questionable cases, especially in copyright litigation:

Over here the artists who wrote the song “Down Under” were sued because that song incorporated the tune from an Australian children’s song written in 1932. Down Under released in 1981, the writer of the 1932 song died in 1988, and the issue was raised in 2008. The court ruled the company which held the rights to the original song be given 5% of royalties from 2002 onwards.

But that’s a very unique case, especially considering the length of time that song had been out before anyone realised there was copyright infringement. All the same, if the artists were incorporating a fair bit of someone else’s song into their own, they should’ve known better.

I can’t imagine many people would get away with that these days. The new methods of disseminating information has made it easier to police these kinds of cases, and there is really no excuse for it considering how visible piracy is as an issue today.

Topic: Off-topic / Kongregate Plus

i had K+ and hardly used the features

already had adblock, so ads were never an issue.

customising profile backgrounds is functionally useless, just like K+ symbol. it’s an aesthetic change which doesn’t enhance the site experience. the limited customisation options also kind of reduced the value of that feature.

i never really used the beta games function, although i can see how that could be a draw for some people.

private chat rooms was the only function i actually used, but then again most of the time i used those private rooms it was for mod related stuff. personally, i can’t see much use for it beyond that.

so that’s enough for me to justify not purchasing it. $30 isn’t that much for a yearly subscription, but i’d rather put that money towards a service i’d actually make the most of.

Topic: Off-topic / I am training an amiibo... by doing absolutely nothing

If by “content” you mean anything to add on the game, The game has already the Amiibo code written on it even if you don’t bought any Amiibo. So, you don’t “Download” them, therfor they aren’t “Downloadable content”.

While the content is there, you’re still buying access to it, which is not, in the end, much different.

The way Nintendo handles it is horrible. They’re only handing you keys to access content that’s already made and shipped out on the disc you buy. With the usual DLC pack, you’ll at least be paying for extra work done after the game’s been released.

actually it’s becoming increasingly popular for developers to do ‘day one DLC’ where certain content or game-modes are locked on release and only available via pre-order bonus or in-game purchase. Dying Light’s “be the zombie” mode and a number of the monsters in “Evolve” spring to mind.

so basically you’re paying full retail price for a game without receiving all the content. which i feel is different to paying for content developed after initial release.


if you’re required to buy an amiibo to access certain in-game content (regardless of whether or not you’re required to download that content or if it’s already coded into the game), then it’s paid additional content which basically functions as DLC.

if amiibo’s just add another level to gameplay without necessarily adding to the base game, then i’d say they’re more like ‘bonuses’.

Niceman is literally that kid from school who everyone talked shit to and beat up. Everyday he’d get absolutely shit on by his peers and he’d act like they were all friends and he’d suck up to them.

I’ll just ignore some people who like picking on a retarded white 13 year old. You won. You beat me in a battle of wits. A battle of wits that have no meaning but to make another person angry for no reason. I have gotten better recently, but its only these threads and some other posters that like picking on a kid. I don’t care if a useless OTer is better than me, like that makes sense. Please see this and say, “Ok.” My random outburst to show my side of comedy was from my opinion. Anybody who hates me so much that when I am in the fu­­cking mood that I am never in now when I post and attack for no reason, leave me the f­uc­k alone, you nasty trolls.
