Take-Two Interactive Software, the company responsible for Grand Theft Auto, recently announced a settlement agreement with mod makers. The agreement was made to settle a lawsuit brought forward by Take Two against two of the most prominent mod makers who had created changes to the game that were not approved by the developers.
The lawsuit filed by Take-Two alleged that the mod makers were infringing on Take Two's copyrights by creating modifications to the game without approval. The lawsuit also alleged that the mod makers were profiting from their unauthorized changes, which Take-Two claimed was unfair competition and a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Under the settlement agreement, the mod makers agreed to stop making changes to the game without approval and to pay Take Two an undisclosed sum of money in compensation. Take-Two also agreed to take no further action against the mod makers as long as they comply with the terms of the settlement.
Take-Two has made it clear that it will not tolerate unauthorized changes to its games and that it will continue to protect its copyright interests. However, the software company also stated that it is open to working with mod makers who are willing to work within the parameters set forth by Take Two.
With the settlement agreement, Take-Two has sent a strong signal to mod makers that unauthorized changes to its games will not be tolerated. At the same time, the company has also shown that it is willing to work with mod makers who are willing to abide by its rules.
