1. You're a newbie.
2. You're on the internet, and I don't think you have contact with NAS nor Konami.

Is NAS just looking for royalties for all the images they technically own & aren't getting paid for, or are they just exercising power because they can?



Well, there's two possible reasons:
1) Protecting their IP to prevent them losing legal control of it
2) Eliminating Competition to an as-of-yet unannounced competitor which would be doomed to failure anyway.

this is really sad [:sad:]
as IceYGO said, ygopro is a project made by chinese team. It is now developed by few other teams, one of which were sharing it on this site.
I personally don't think NAS, Konami or a third party can shut it down. they probably want to remove it because it contains pictures of yugioh cards, their official names and card texts.
this can be solved with 2 things:
- removing pictures from official app (either removing whole pictures, or making new ones which wouldn't resemble to official yugioh cards, with different card arts, etc.)
- changing card names end texts (either removing it completely, so cards would be differed by card ID, or make new ones, like on the fake yugioh cards, for example)
this is not a huge issue for the users, 'cause we can modify these 2 things manually, so anyone could still have official names and pictures if they want.

I recommend at least attempting to maintain the game, but with the "technical legal" stuff excluded and distribute them under the table.

You can't shut down ygopro completely, it's an opensource.

Why would NAS/Konami/whoever do this? Can't they see that there would be no benefit unless they create an official program that is equal or surpasses the sims we have?

In any case, we should do what we can to save YGO from Konami killing it if we truly care.

They can take it off our site, but they will never take it off our computers :D

Were any other sims taken down apart from DN and us? I really didn't think we were that well known.

Mmmm... [

For legal reasons, Dueling Network will be taken offline until further notice. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Note that the third-party requesting this takedown was not Konami, but another authorized party. ]

Dueling Network is not even automatic so why someone want it to takedown??[:cry:] [:sad:] Ahh!![:doh:]

The only illegal think about this site was only YgoPro Chrome version. The downloadable content is not. Because the game have open source, we can add the images from wiki or other sites so easy. The card texts are just texts that can be changed in source too. Is same as creating a document with notepad and copy paste from yugioh wiki. Is nothing illegal. They are just lying and they cant win a process with that they have.

What about the AI source code? The AI isnt part of the main YGOPro repo, its something unique to this variant. If this third party gets more aggressive there will be no way of using the AI.
