    Yea, this mod was on the repository, before anything with trademarks were removed. Not sure why, as these are community made mods, so I am not sure how BeamNG could get in trouble for it.

    It's because BeamNG is hosting the content and it can be seen by an aggressive lawyer as copyright/trademark infringement.

    The easiest comparison I can think of right now is Porsche not being a lot of racing video games. Porsche didn't give licenses to use their cars in the games, so if one of the games had included a Porsche they would have been sued. It doesn't matter who made the model, because it's a model of copyrighted/trademarked content.

    That is different though, that is content the developer put into the game, intend on making money using the brand. BeamNG is hosting a mod service that allows you to download mods, which is no different than Steam Workshop, yet I haven't seen copyright issues with that.

    I'm not an expert on the related laws, or the legal framework that BeamNG deals with, but I think it's because the repository is hosted by BeamNG and is a part of the game rather than being hosted by a different party such as Steam. I'm sure one of the staff members can explain this better than I can.

    Trademarks and copyright.
    Anything that goes on the repo goes through us first.
    This is just a measure to avoid any possible ugly trademark/copyright issues.

    Lawyers has spoken on that ;)



    But let's not go offtopic in this thread.

    Stop calling bumps, it's much more annoying that the bump itself.
    And as far it's on-topic/relevant, there's no problem.
    (That applies forum-wide)
