"The day, when GTA modding was declared illegal".
We received word earlier today that the publisher of the open world action-adventure game franchise Grand Theft Auto, Take-Two Interactive, has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the developers of the popular modding tool OpenIV. The order was sent to the OpenIV team who have chose to comply with their orders and have stopped all further development of the tools.
On June 5, 2017, the team received an official cease and desist, with the posting quoting one line from the letter. ' Its eponymous tool allows users to quickly load various mods into the game, but only for offline use and never during multiplayer - but that, the group claims, isn't good enough for Take-Two Interactive. This tool helped a lot of modders to replace/change textures, however according to Take-Two this mod allowed 'third parties to defeat security features of its software and modify that software in violation Take-Two's rights'.
GooD-NTS said that this accusation is unfounded and that the letter "is illiterate both technically and grammatically". "Yes, we could. But we decided not to,".

"So, we made a decision to agree with their claims and we're stopping distribution of OpenIV".
The team claimed that while it could take Take-Two to court, it eventually decided against something like that.
'Going to court will take at least few months of our time and huge amount of efforts, and, at best, we'll get absolutely nothing.
Take-Two had not responded to a request for comment on the matter at the time of publication.
