Fallout 4 Mod Strikes Out Against MLB




A baseball-inspired mod created for Fallout 4 has garnered the ill-will of the highly volatile MLB, who have condemned the mod and implied that they will “enforce their rights” as a result, a not untypical turn of events for such an organization confronting the evils of random modders online.

The mod changed the main player model to that of Red Sox athlete David Ortiz, while also altering the appearance of numerous NPCs and enemies to uniforms and gear respectively, which has apparently proven heinous enough to warrant removal.

The mod in action, which has since been made unavailable to download lest it render any millionaire baseball players or billionaire team owners destitute:

    I'm all for hating rich people but with the way American copyright law works if they don't sue these guys, IE defend their copyright, they're considered to have given up their right to it and anyone can use it (and re-copyright it themselves too).

    Something really needs to be done about copyright law - in today's day and age, it seems to do as harm as much as it does good. :/

    It has always done more harm than good, and been circumvented by the same shitbags that came up with it.

    You're wrong. You're mistaking Trademark law (the need to defend it) for Copyright law. And the part about "re-copyright" is pure fantasy.

    Absolutely nothing causes someone to lose a Copyright short of reaching the actual Copyright duration, or a Court Order (typically for bankruptcy). They can defend their copyright as capriciously as they see fit - only going after the people who they think can give them a net positive return, typically.

    quite simple. It's fan art. It's not for sale. It's free. Sueing over it is the same as sueing someone who draws a picture of some baseball hunk and posts it on the internet. If monotization comes in then they should have every right to sue.

    They probably wouldn't be anywhere near as upset if the mainstream media didn't keep painting gaming as toxic women-raping terrorism.

    Haha they're never gonna win this case, it's fan art, and provided for free. You can only enforce copyright on things that are being monetized; at least when it comes to artistic things; which this is.

    Lazy mod, there's baseball uniforms already in game. With the creation kit all you have to do is add it to NPC inventory. Technically he could have done the exact same thing in game just using console commands tonhave them equip the outfit, so the mod is a waste of space.

    The uniforms in the game are for the "Rad Sox" not the Red Sox. It's not much, but it is a re-texture work, packaged with an externally edited character file. Can't be done in console.

    These are the mods you will see until Bethesda actually releases the creation kit for fallout 4.

    Except it doesn't require you to enter any commands, meaning the game was modified, or modded.

    Should have made the team use the lore friendly "Rad Sox" to stifle any claim as under parody and really stick it to them.

    Blame the poorly written laws that say you cannot even allow parody to go unlitigated or you lose your copyrights.

    As I said above, this is wrong. Copyrighthas no such means of being lost to infringement, that's Trademark.
