This game is using map artwork from another publisher without permission. The maps belong to LBF40 by Compass Games and we have not given permission for them to be used in this game.

DO NOT SUPPORT THIS THEFT.

I'm not seeing any files attached to the game, so I'm not sure which art you're referring to.

Pete (wonders if they pulled the files)

I think files have never been uploaded. But the pics are from La Bataille de France, and the authors don't want the game go that way because of ownership of copyright.

There were several pictures of the game set up that have now apparently been deleted.

David had made counters and some rules and was playing out a mod on a map and snapped a detail pic. There was no copyright infringement and this was all blown WAY out of proportion.

Ridiculous.

I noticed the "cover" art that is pictured is taken from the Warlord Games website and is the cover art from the Bolt Action miniatures d-day starter set!

It is not a commercial production. It is "a fan made project for fun & sharing."

You may not like that something was appropriated. I get that.

You may have to support your copyright. I get that.

But really, the indignation is a bit silly, and a bit disingenuous. Nobody's trying to make money off this. It's something a user cobbled up for fun. You should be complimented, while politely assuring your copyright is protected.

I probably would not buy the "infringed" game at this point, due to the outsized reaction.
