Legality of mods

#1 Post by indianboss » 05 Jul 2020 06:45

Can anyone from SCS Team tell me if adding a modified ATS2 truck in ETS2 is legal?
I have read the given notice but it is not clear regarding that.- https://blog.scssoft.com/2019/04/important-notice.html
On the other hand i have seen a mod in steam workshop which copies ATS2 trucks as it is in ETS2 - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 2098437923

Please comment for better reach.

I also read that EULA and states that if the truck is completely built from scratch by the creator there is no problem from SCS's side, but if the truck is copied from the game source files to other titles then there is a clear copyright infringement.
So if I create a Iveco Turbo Star from scratch the game devs don't have nothing to comment, but if I copy the Mack Anthem form ATS to ETS2 then i'm in hot water as this violates the EULA and other TOS for the software.

So, the mod that i shared from steam workshop is clearly a copyright infringement?

If you think something is breaking the rules/laws, never post a link to it advertising it all over public space.

Just as Mohegan13 said.

Thanks, Mohegan13! ;-)
