    But they can't sue you regardless of what you do, only dmca you to take the shit down.

    This is of course speaking about the US, I don't know about the uk or other countries with their new garbage copyright laws.




    You act like the kid who created wL would actually even attempt to take legal action against someone.

    lol'd.


    STFU. It's plain and simple just STFU

    It doesn't matter, Jagex has all legal rights to the Client Cache we use. the pics we use. and all the mapdata, it all theirs. the Source code however isn't. take normal 317's for example they dont have that copyrighted anymore thay cant do shit abut it, only 500+ witch is what they use now.

    I don't remember the 200 year copyright timeframe expiring.

    It's more about the fact we break their terms & conditions by using an edited client, which in turn could give Jagex as a company or RuneScape as a product, a bad image more than 'stealing their work', and they have alot more proof we 'stole their work' than we do to argue we didn't.
    Source code is considered literary work, so it is under the same copyright law.

    There would be ways to prove it (all they'd do is ask your ISP for your IP and then compare it with their log files.

    And they could sue you for damages. You can sue anyone for anything, even if it's something completely stupid. Whether you win or not is another thing.

    The client code is copyrighted as well. And the copyright won't expire for a good amount of time yet.

    Very true: the Stream/ISAAC cipher in Winterlove are from the client. Hyperion's are not though.

    It depends on the country, type of work, etc.

    However:

    The best thing is to ASK A LAWYER!

    The people in this community (unless we have a lawyer hidden among us) cannot give real legal advice.

    winterLove was the name of the "kid", his server is nameless, so its being called after him.

    I think it's pretty save to have a server for personal use or small online use.
    JaGeX will probably never even find out about your server. It's only getting quite dangerous when your having a big server. Servers like Dodian, Frugooscape, BattleScape, 2Speced, etc.
