    ATTN: People who are wanting to cook things for the PS3 without the mapper's...

    Permission. Please don't do this. It's not only morally wrong, but will probably get you banned from the forum for good. I do not recommend this at all. I already have several people threatening me in my thread saying they'll cook my timberland map without my permission but still give me credit. But that still gets ME in trouble because I AM THE AUTHOR OF THE MAP. Please, STOP!

      Because it might be illegal. Halo is Microsoft and Bungie's IP.

      Even if the odds of them taking action are small... we might as well self-police a little bit until we have a little less gray area. Same applies to GoW related mods.

                Because it's not illegal for the PC, but it is for the PS3 because sony is their competetor, not somebody's personal computer. AnubusUT2 explained it to me.

                  This doesnt make sense. That is implying that it is allowed to have illegal stuff on PC and isnt on PS3. If thats the reason why the author isnt concerned about legal issues with the PC version.

                  competetor or not has no influence on stuff being legal or not, you would think.

                      I don't think any mods are illeagal. If it were illeagal to put on PS3 it would also be illeagal to put it on PC. Mod's aren't illeagal unless you make money. In fact the first Levels I'm making when little big planet comes out is original Mario Bros levels. Nintendo can't sue me. I'm also not arguing FOR the map to be cooked. Either way is fine by me. I don't think PS3 NEEDS this map or it will suddenly fail. My only problem with this map on PS3 would be the fact that it is a Halo map in my PS3, and I might be against it on a moral level. In now way is it illeagal.

                      Oh and btw, I think anyone threatening to cook this map without Bret Hart's permission is a disrespectfull little weasel. That's right....I said a WEASEL!!!! LOL

                          Bret's maps are remakes of Halo maps. Halo is owned by Microsoft. Microsoft competes with Sony. Therefore they may loose enraged lawyers if something derived from their franchise becomes available on Sony's platform. I have no idea if they would actually do that, but I wouldn't put it past them.

                          You should of course be asking permission before distributing an altered version of someone else's mod anyway; it's the polite thing to do.

                            Yes, thanks for explaining it better for me. The exact point I was trying to make.

                              Legality is irrelevant. Microsoft can afford more rabid lawyers than you, and they aren't afraid to use them.
