Title: Holdfast gameplay is being stolen and used for advertising.
Post by: [1steIvN] Majoor Panda on January 08, 2018, 10:30:17 pm
There's this mobile game called "guns of glory" it has been using footage from many different games and stolen videos from many YouTubers without giving them any credit. Most of their ads show Cossacks 3 or Total War: Napoleon/ Empire but since a month or so they started using Holdfast footage for their ads. I don't know who's footage they took but it shows a linebatlle on the desert map.

This is happening to all games, I saw pictures of War of Rights content being stolen by iphone/android apps. Companies steal anything that might be "similar" to their game. Pixelated Apollo's content was stolen by apps too.

Hello! Thanks for informing us. We're aware of the issue with mobile apps using the game's footage to advertise there's. We'll be looking into it.

They do it all the time Reflex, I keep seeing adverts for random games using NW footage, I even think there are some 51st guys in the clips #FreeAdvertising

This is a common practice. I'm sure AGS is aware of it, but they've got to use their resources on building the game not chasing copyright infringement.
