Report article RSS Feed Stargate Network content stolen by a former member

A former member of the Stargate Network team decided one year ago to leave the team in order to work on his own project. Lately, we were stunned to discover that not only he used his models in this project (called "Stargate Genesis") whereas he signed a charter of assignment of rights, but he stolen lots of content made by other people as well. And this project-itself is a huge plagiarism.

A former member of the Stargate Network team decided one year ago to leave the team in order to work on his own project. Lately, we were stunned to discover that not only he used his models in this project (called "Stargate Genesis") whereas he signed a charter of assignment of rights, but he stolen lots of content made by other people as well. And this project-itself is a huge plagiarism.
But it is not all. This person decided as well to claim a "Copyright" on the SGN assets, in order to stop our project, can you believe that?

An official statement detailing the situation was published here (in French): Stargate-network.net

The french stargate community allready expressed us their support in this matter. And now our partners, Phoenix Interactive also published for English-speaking a demonstrative video that I urge you to look:

Les gens de mauvaise foi sont parfois plus proches qu'on ne le pense.

Un conseil: garder bien les archives des communications entre membres et les modèles de développement en plusieurs copies. Cela pourrait bien vous servir en cas d'enquête de l'organisme chargé des droits d'auteurs.

Ne vous laisser pas faire! Ce genre de personne tentera toute sorte de moyens pour vous arrêter.

Je ne connais pas les origines de ce conflit, mais je ne souhaite qu'une chose.
C'est que l'honnêteté l'emporte et que la bouche des malhonnêtes soit close.

Sincèrement,
Susumu Kodai
