Sim Secret’s Less Than Cutting Edge ‘Secret’ – Almost TWO YEARS After It Happened
Oh dear. This one is almost embarrassing.
In fact, this was first busted on the EA forum by FreezerBunnyCowplant back in August 2015:
The since banned Plopppo was rather surprised by the blatant copyright breech – clearly knowing little of the disdain Asia tends to hold for copyright laws (to cut a long story short, anything’s legal so long as you don’t get caught – see the so-called People’s Republic of China for details!), but we liked Colton147’s toddler’s quip!
Whilst FreezerBunnyCowplant even managed to track down the pirate TV station to their hold, Tip was wondering whether the bumnuggets of EA needed tipped off?
EmilyDuru even confronted them face to face – or at least screen to screen – in true Dispatches style.
FreezerBunnyCowplant showed how the two logos perfectly overlay one another, making it pretty damning that the Sim TV logo has been plagerised from that of the Glitterturd.
Then to everyone’s amusement:
But whilst Crzy_Gal_101 and Fairy_Happy were piling on the lampoons, they and everyone else missed the best bit.
So, here’s the part the bumnuggets at EA missed – Sim TV have carried on pirating the Sims 4 logo for their online mobile platform app!
As you can see below, the last changes to the software were made in December 2015, so clearly they chose to ignore any copyright injunctions made by EA:
Which seems rather strange – after all the Sim TV app has so much in common with Sims 4’s code you could be forgiven for wondering if it’s a rip off…
… after all, they appear to share creating the same levels of customer satisfaction!
