Post about it here when people try to sell MUGEN.

You can also post "templates" to use in such cases.



@Seller

I am [xxx] and this is not a question.

You are selling Elecbyte's free M.U.G.E.N 2d fighting game engine, with characters fan-made by countless people. Among these are Phantom of the Server, warusaki3, Byakko, Splode, Sander, Reu, FlowaGirl, Big Eli King, Deuce, Sunboy and Tenshin, to name just a few. You are illegally making profit from Elecbyte's and all these other persons' free work without their permission and against the license agreement. You should be ashamed. Et cetera.

I know or have been in contact with all of the aforementioned M.U.G.E.N fans. Elecbyte may no longer be around to sue you. But--as you must know, what with downloading our stuff and all--remnants of a M.U.G.E.N community still exist.

And you have just made yourself a few thousand enemies.

Do not carry on selling the M.U.G.E.N engine.



@Bidder

Hi.

You have been bidding on an article named Marvel Vs Streetfighter DVD Capcom for PC.

My name is [xxx] and you do not know me, but I feel obliged to inform you that this auction by [yyy] is an illegal attempt to rip unsuspecting bidders off. The auction is not about a Capcom game. It is Elecbyte's free 2d fighting engine, name of M.U.G.E.N.

The version you have been bidding on is filled exclusively with characters and stages fan-made by other people, in their free time, for no profit. (The article includes several characters from http://www.mugenguild.com/~pots/ and [link to Byakko's page which no longer exists!] and a hundred other pages.)

Mugen has a long history of people using things released on the web and making a quick buck off of them.


Many people risk their lives everyday by having Mugen.

I wouldn't say "no one can stop them", people won't buy those things if you tell them it's free.

I wouldn't be too sure. I'm pretty sure there are people out there who know what Mugen is, and would pay for a bunch of characters if they were hard to find/offline/privates.

Added the two messages I once used to the first post.

Wait....um....not only is this free and those people are stupid for buying it, but, they're also committing an illegal act by doing so....Mugen is only legal because it's being used freely....though, people still rip music to CDs and such,  ;P

But yeah....lame....
