ILLEGAL CONTENT

I'd like to just reaffirm MoDaCo's position regarding piracy and illegal content in the light of some recent questions / postings.

Posts will be censored by myself or my moderation team if the contain or link to:
  • Illegal / pirated / cracked software or sites that host such software
  • Nintendo emulators / ROMs or sites hosting them (in light of Nintendo's legal stance)
Of course, there are those that argue homescreens / ringtones are a grey area - this is true - but I have made an executive decision to let these be posted, and should the copyright owner take issue, they can contact me and I will deal with the offending post immediately.

CUSTOM ROMS

You may discuss and post links to custom device ROMs on MoDaCo, provided the following rules are adhered to:
  • ROMs must not be hosted directly in topic via the MoDaCo attachment system
  • ROMs must not contain any illegal 3rd party software (this includes trial versions included without permission)
  • ROMs must give full credit to the original author
This decision has been taken in light of the huge amount of interest in this area of device customisation within the community, and member feedback!

Please note that custom ROM discussion should be kept in specific device sub-areas, (e.g. Kaiser.MoDaCo.com for Kaiser based devices).

ISSUES

If you have any issues with this policy, please contact me directly via PM.
