Saw another thread about this today. Is there no way to put a stop to this? I'm guessing that there's not much in the way of moderation and what not when it comes to the Google Play store.

It is not limited to the playstore, the games are uploaded elsewhere as well, although not sure if they can monetize it in a different platform.

If someone can afford it, drag some lawyers into this. Surely there's grounds for a lawsuit when it comes to this kind of nonsense.

I think the only thing that will stop them though is if google play and the other sites start moderating submissions again. Though I can see a class action lawsuit against the platform due to their lack of moderation developing over time if enough people do this.

Though if Article 13 passes in the EU (does anyone know if it did pass?) then in a couple years they will be liable for this anyways as I understand it.

@bgillisp I think it did, yeah. I remember reading something about it not too long ago.

This is so scummy.
It looks like you can flag a game as inapropriate on the google store even if you're not the copyright holder, would that do anything?
There's either "Copycat or impersonation" or "Other objection" that might work.

Although it's still stealing, it's not really monetizing if it's free, is it ?

I thought they'd been deleted/banned but it looks like the uploader just changed their name to RPGMVDevs, cause the developer link in the video doesn't work but the games, or at least some of them, are still up and it looks like "contact the developer" on all of them still gives the same email.

Can't do that to me if I don't deploy it!

I really need to stop thinking there are new freebies just because someone made a new post in the freebies subforum lol.
AND just like that..... I got STEAM DLC up and working! YES!
Game making is like a marathon, except the last 1/4 is more like sprint... a very long and intense sprint.
Finally got to finish the demo for my project!
Another week has gone by. Maybe you made changes to your project/s. Maybe you didn't. Nonetheless, THAT IS NO EXCUSE TO NOT BACK THEM UP O_O!
