Banned for piracy. - reave - 02-28-2018

It has been brought to our attention by a member of the site that the Scarface edit by Maniac utilized pirated source material. Fanedit.org has a strict no piracy rule and as such the edit has been removed from the site and Maniac has been permanently banned. This rule is not flexible. Break it, and you will be banned.

Quick question, how do you know that Maniac utilized pirated source material?


RE: Banned for piracy. - Q2 - 02-28-2018

I can't speak for the other admin, but I for one don't necessarily want to say. Others who may use pirated sources might then not make the same mistake.

100% agreed with Q2.  We are convinced it was pirated and that should be enough.

not trying to take sides, but Maniac sent me this pic a while back

im just wondering which part you guys think was pirated?


RE: Banned for piracy. - TVs Frink - 02-28-2018

The part that he didn't rip from his Blu-ray.

Why didn't he rip it from his Blu-ray?  We don't know.  But the reason doesn't matter.

Note: It doesn't say it's enough to own the source. You also have to use the source.  We are sure he did not.


RE: Banned for piracy. - scrapesky - 02-28-2018

i get the rules must be abided by. Could you post me the link to the rules of owning the source please? Some mod or admin told me something about the source must be the quality of the fanedit correct? No 720 mixed with 1080 for example, or no DVD content mixed with BDMV content right? Even if it is the same film purchased by the editor, in different formats?  I am just trying to fully understand the owning the source rules & how one might break them

May I ask how far back, and why he sent it to you?


RE: Banned for piracy. - scrapesky - 02-28-2018

For cover art & disc label. His being UK release. 2-3 weeks back for a guess. Why?
