we are aware of the fact that some countries that don't have as much respect for copyright laws as some others that they sell mods on disks.

My only advice would be that you shouldn't buy them as you can download them for free from our websites.

Yeah I've personally seen it in Indonesia, Saudi Arabia ,Iraq and Turkey for Shockwave and other mods.

Like Hunter said just dont buy them, Heck If the laws for downloading or browsing the webs restrict you from doing so,(Like here in turkey where I couldnt even download ROTR at times and resorted to private torrentss) PM where you are to me I'll be sure to send you a disk with it for free beer1.gif

I just have one question: If a mod's copyrights is indeed infringed upon, what can you actually do about it? You may be able to pull it from C&C Websites and the popular modding websites, but if they sell it somewhere else that might not have the decency to pull it without a court order, what can you do?

I do know of the community blacklists, but is there anything else?

Nothing else to do but warn all your friends.

In the end mod copyrights all depend on an unspoken honor code, and if people refuse to abide by it, there's really nothing you can do.

There is actually something you can do which is legal. The assholes that sell this mods are making profit over EA's product. So even if mods are not covered by any copyright problem, Zero Hour still is as it is. If they sell both the mod and Zero Hour than as long as there is any form of copyright/anti-piracy law in this countries, what they do is still illegal. If they only sell the mod - than blame the idiots that buy it.

actually, while I agree it's unfair that free mods and games being sold in physical disks, it's really helpful for the people with limited or no internet coverage, so at least they can also taste those "paid free stuffs" without needing to download from the internet.
in some area internet are still rocket-priced and with dial-up speed, and most stuffs are now sized quite big. for some people maybe downloading a 500MB file is nothing at all, but for some other people it could cost their entire saving for the whole month if that thing downloaded from the only netcafe in their place. having a computer store that sell physical disks containing (actually) downloadable contents really helps them. by only a fairly low cost they can have the thing they wanted/needed, they also can share the disk easily to their friends, whatever the thing is free minigames or pirated licensed software.
however, it is still wrong to sell those disk that contain actually free stuffs ONLINE.

So in essence, you are paying for the internet and time that the person who put them on the disk used, not for the actual mod. Nice business model in countries where internet speeds/reliability are terrible. However, selling it online as a download (or a disk, but to a slightly lesser extent) is a definite no-no.
