Come on... Neither do we know you, you can do this just like anyone. Seriously, in the whole PSP homebrewing history, I don't remember any homebrew that did brick a PSP on purpose...


Why are you so strict about your homebrew copyright? Usually PSP devs won't care if someone uploads their homebrew somewhere else, in fact many give the source code of their homebrews.

EDIT: Oh, I see, it's also available on the Apple Store.
Like... Is it even possible to copyright a PSP Homebrew? If you make a PSP Mini out of it, it would be whole new dtory, but I haven't really see anyone copyright a PSP Homebrew ..

That really doesn't make any sense too be honest.. Your server should be as "unsafe" as the rest..

Actually people do copyright their homebrews. I've seen froestegator's on his "PSP Everest" app.

You automatically hold a copyright in anything you create.
But by registering it legally, you can protect it

This one stops people placing it on their server.
They may host it but it will soon stop working after 24 hours or less depending on the DRM, so anyone thinking about it you will just be wasting your time and anyone that downloads it so please don't try

So you coded it to self-destruct if it was hosted on another site?

I think this has gone on long enough.

Asking others not to host is one thing, but region locking a free homebrew is a joke, and inserting drm with suicide code is flat out malware.
Those are rare things in the PSP scene, and not something to be proud of.

I mean, your homebrew is free. If you were this worried about cannibalizing your iOS sales, you should never have released a free version.
To require users jump though hoops to use a free homebrew, and make veiled threats if they don't do as you ask, is insulting.

Since this, in all, is just a malware laced "demo" edition to boost sales for your iOS version, I see no reason to allow it to remain.

All that was going on here was a debate.
I just made it clear that my software will simply stop working if hosted just in case someone desided to host it to put it to the test and would of just annoyed anyone not knowing about the DRM in this software and think it simply dosn't work, and while malware has never happened on the PSP dosn't mean that it will never get malware someday so that is another reason to keep controll and make clear to users that the official site is the only option and they will be safe 100%

Also since you made the claim this is malware I request you amend your post for legal resons.

What I would like to point out: there are no terms of service bundled with your download and there are no terms of service on your website. I am no lawyer, but in what world do you think you can go around making claims like "you cannot host it on your server" when you have utterly failed to inform of the full license before one has downloaded the archive? What a joke.

And we ended this debate. No, we do not accept your suicide code. No, we do not accept your unreasonable requests. No, we do not accept your questionable ideas about copyright. So if you want free advertising for your iOS game, go somewhere else.

GOG and CDProjekt Red would like to have a word with you...

Regarding your threats to one of our fellow moderator: since I also claim your DRM is malware, come and get me.
