I have a question regarding copyright claims on gamemodes.
The example I’m going to use atm is Cider (Yea I know, don’t start bitching please…)
So, as you probably know Cider is released by it’s author a long time ago.
But, if a gamemode which is based on Cider (example: Gmod.biz, FearlessRP) somehow got leaked. Are they allowed to put a server online with it, or not?
Because for as far as I know these gamemodes are, as I said before, based on a previous released gamemode by the author himself.
Is a community able to sue you or take any other kind of law actions because you are using their gamemode which is based on a previous released gamemode?
Thanks in advance
