Bethesda officially responds to the big Fallout 4 console mod piracy fiasco that threatens to jeopardize the modding community.
Earlier today we reported on the growing epidemic of Fallout 4 mod thievery and how it's ultimately dismantling the tight-knit modding community across consoles and PC. The good news is that Bethsoft is definitely aware of the situation, and the devs have officially responded to the problem by announcing a new way to report mod theft.
"A number of you have reported instances of users uploading Mod content that allegedly does not belong to the Mod creator. We take these reports seriously and want to protect copyright holders and authors of the Mod content shared on Bethesda.net," reads the recent forum post. Modders will have to file a DMCA claim to a specific email address, enabling a streamlined and direct method to thwart the pandemic. Although this isn't a catch-all solution, is a huge step in the right direction.
