#200403 You do realize that distribution of the mod, in any form, is illegal?

So by you sharing this, you are technically confessing that you have been involved in piracy.

Well, I would like to let you know that there wouldn't be court. Nintendo is big company with big amount of money. They know that they would get from creators nothing. We talking about milions, do you think that creators are rich like that? Its just a scare method, nothing else

#200529 just so you know, there has been no money exchanged except from The Pokémon Company International to their law firm that sent the Cease and Desist, nobody from the Pixelmon team has been paid for stopping development on a free mod that completely infringes on TPCIs (as well as GameFreak and Nintendo) intellectual property.

#200561 Then why isn't this being fought a court of law. Pixelmon made money from ad revenue, their partnership with discord, and the partnership with Nodecraft. If Nintendo truly wanted you gone they would have done it 6 months or a year after pixelmon was released. Not 6 years later. And after 6 years it falls under the fair use system which can be fought in the court of law. Or was pixelmon just satisfied with the amount of money and the number of people they screwed over thru the years so they said screw it and stopped?

#200707 1) ad revenue is for the upkeep of the website and doesn't actually make anything extra

2) Discord partners are community servers that get a boost to their server by being on a separate node, having an increased user limit, global emotes and a custom permalink to join with

3) the partnership with NodeCraft is to host our downloads, which was most useful for the launcher as it had a JSON file for compatibility and jar location, players/server owners had the benefit of a discount code for their first month of server hosting with NodeCraft

4) Fair Use law only covers things derivative works such as Parodies (eg PETAs games), Pixelmon does nothing different to Pokémon, the mod tagline is "Pokémon in Minecraft"

6) nobody but TPCI, GameFreak & Nintendo are making or have made money due to Pixelmon

7) why would we build a community just to knock it down? That literally makes no sense at all, we are all upset that we had to stop but we also knew that this could and would happen one day

tl;dr Pixelmon have never profited, y'all need to chill and stop reading conspiracy stuff online
