Exclamation Game Reviews

Seems like recently we've had quite a few reviews posted here that are not original to the members of this site. People are taking reviews from other places and posting them as their own. I originally thought it was just one person, but it's not. This is a larger problem than I was willing to believe at first.

The problem with pirated reviews is that they are protected under federal copyright law. When you post someone else's work as your own, you are breaking the law. It would be like selling copies of Harry Potter with your name on it; you're taking credit for someone else's intellectual property.

A few years ago I was a moderator on an older gaming site that would post previews for games coming out soon, and reviews after the games had already been released. We were a fairly popular site with lots of traffic.

One day the admin received a cease and desist order from a certain online gaming site (one of the big ones, but not mentioning which one). The letter basically said to either shut down the site or to try the case in court. Well, court costs money, so the site was shut down instead.

I don't want to see that happen here. No one is asking anyone else to write reviews. No one should be under so much pressure to write a review that they go and steal them from hardworking people on the internet.

Please stop stealing things and posting them here. I don't want to get any letters from other web sites. However, if you wish to use something you saw elsewhere, just take the time to cite it. At the end of your review, mention the place you got it from and provide a link.

If this involves any of my reviews, Mario knows my case firsthand. Also, in my MKvDCU review, I explained why I can post my reviews here [they're where and still are my reviews].

It kinda shocks me that people bother stealing reviews to try and get popularity on a forum and then like in that case the forum is closed!

That is ridiculous, I mean its not that hard to review a game in your own words. I make my own reviews and it isn't a good review unless it is your own opinion. Of course I believe my Phantom Hourglass review was horrible, cause I was half asleep when I typed it, and forgot the most important parts.

Obviously, there's a few people. Less than five. But giving out names really isn't necessary. They've been dealt with on a one-to-one basis.
