All I said is that the map author transfers all rights to the map ownership to KC. I did not extrapolate that to "mean" anything else. So once someone uploads a map to KC, it is KC that has the right to decide when and if any rights to the map are violated. If this is not acceptable to you, you should host the map somewhere else where your intellectual property rights can be controlled by you. And then figure out how you plan to enforce said intellectual property rights.
Quote from: virgilw on September 11, 2011, 06:44:07 PMI generally frown upon maps that are derivative but don't add substantial value. If someone changes the author or title string and leaves the rest of the map the same.... that's not gonna get approved.
