@splodge: Apparently this has been going on, with folks downloading mods from the Nexus and putting them on Steam. Don't see any direct way on a mod's page to report it.

Why would I ever make a mod and try to sell it when any chump could just re-package it and sell it for less. At least the mobile phone app stores have some procedures in place to eventually get fraudulent apps taken down. Judging by the way Steam are handling this, it will be entirely up to the person affected to get it taken down. Just ask nicely, I guess? Please sir, could you please take down my work?

I like the idea of mod makers being able to make money, but without giving them protection and adequate tools to make sure their work is not stolen or duplicated on a platform that has none of the anonymity of torrent websites, I can't see this ever being a positive thing. Why give scammers and thieves an avenue not just to copy others work, but make potentially large amounts of money?

So for shits and giggles, what to stop me from uploading someone elses mods and charging for them? Would the creators have any right to come back at me? And what if I change one small thing about the mod then sell it? Do I have to provide any proof I am the creator of the mod? What If I get a huge mod, make a myriad of tiny changes to it and sell each version for different prices?

I guess I am wondering if we are going to see a lot of duplicates and theft. Since valve will be doing zero quality control, I don't see how this will be avoided.

I really like Heroes of the Storm, need to get more time on it. I've toiled with Dota and it's not for me. Heroes is much friendlier to me.

It's the entire point of it. The only gap in the market is all the people who are put off by the complexity and hostility of DOTA / League. HoTS quite cleverly reduces these problems while adding complexity in the maps. It's really quite smart!

Why do you want help liking movies, if you don't like movies at all? My Dad doesn't like movies either, and his opinion is insane. "Why do I want to watch what some random person just made up in their head?" He has basically written off fiction his entire life, from any source. If you have such a broad "Fuck that" for an entire medium then what do you expect of anybody?

I think he made this post because he recognizes that fact and is wondering about what he is missing.
