Rockstar parent company Take-Two has reportedly issued a DMCA takedown against modder LukeRoss, best known for making VR mods of games like GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2.
As reported by PCGamer, LukeRoss shared a Patreon post detailing how the modder received a DMCA takedown notice from Take-Two. “They are demanding that I remove all their copyright works from my Patreon page,” wrote LukeRoss. “I immediately asked for clarifications, since it is my belief that I’m not hosting any such materials.”
“As you all know, I do create and distribute original modifications for those games… However, none of my modifications are built using software belonging to Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc, and the modifications are not intended to replace their games, nor are they a means of exploiting Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc’s proprietary IP or assets.”
