@Galois1, quit insulting everyone.. it makes it REALLY hard for me to be sympathetic. Your not the first person on the internet to have something stolen. Be happy it wasn't something important like your identity.
now can you answer this? Why is your map no longer on Battle.net? I'm finding that REALLY strange that HIS is up there but yours is gone.. Only the bootleg comes up when you search. did you take it down?
I'm not saying you didn't make the map, I'm very curious as to why HIS somehow magically REPLACED yours on the list.. Practically in the same spot and everything.. Doesn't that seem a little like an exploit? Am I missing something here??
Even with public domain works it is obvious that you cannot simply mis-attribute the work to yourself.
That is incorrect. If it is public domain people can use it as they please and often do. For example Village People has the song "Go West" which is a cover of Pachelbels "Canon in D" (which is public domain) and never mentions the original author. Another example of a public domain is the declaration of independence. People can use it in a song, in a book, a movie or do what-ever they please with it, without mentioning anything about who wrote it initially.
Why not log into your account in starcraft 2 and just report the map . Theres a report copy right button.
Im sure if you just link them the making of your map and what not and say the creators name has been changed to HYDRO or whatever they will sort something out.
Ok... Mind telling me what the point of this thread is? We all know by now that youre map was stolen. What do you want? Apparently not our help since you're ignoring everything we say and just insult everyone on here.
That's the same kind of absurd rationalization that Americans use far too often. Its the same as saying that its poor people's fault that they are poor. You call me naive? I call you an ignorant asshole.
Actually it is poor peoples fault that they are poor. If you think otherwise then your a cummunist that needs a piece of lead in your skull.
Ok but yeah it sucks for you.
Did you actually lock it? My guess is that you didnt lock it.
BTW im an American and I can tell you this. If it wasnt for us you wouldnt have ,StarCraft, computers, Internet, your stupid european socialist lifestyles where you drink beer all day work for 4 hours and can retire at 40, bikini's, half naked women in music videos, Internet Pron, you tube, google.
Seriously If theres one thing I would want to be in this dump heap of a world it is ... an AMERICAN.
