Dear cfx.re, server owners & dev,
after the change of rockstars tos now tebex will take actions against fivem servers, that are not follow the new rules.
Some people say, that reallife brand cars are allowed, other say its not.
Then there are people, that just change the BMW logo a bit and everything seems to be fine.
Maybe make it simple and not in a lawyer language that has much freedom of intepretation.
The changes will affect all of us, server owners will not make nearly the same revenue than before this rule, cfx.re that takes a 15% share of the revenue from tebex sales will either lose a lot of revenue and all of the developers out there will lose revenue because with less money server owners cant spend a lot on scripts anymore.
I dont want to attack anyone with this. Let us brainstorm and rethink how we can safely monetize our servers without getting problems from cfx.re our tebex.
btw. sorry for my bad english, usually i let chatgpt right my text, but i prefered my real words here.
Original email from tebex:
Dear Server Owners,
Our goal in Tebex is to help you run a safe and successful game server. One of our key services is around monetization, and as such, we need to avoid conflict with third party brands and copyrights. Although it may be that no infringement of third party rights has occurred, we are currently investigating certain uses of Rolls-Royce, Mini Cooper and BMW names and imagery. Pending further notice, we request that any and all content containing these brand names or which otherwise makes reference to any of their respective products and services is removed from your store. We kindly ask that you act according to this request immediately, and no later than 5PM GMT on March 20th, after which we will be forced to take appropriate action.
More generally, we remind you that, in accordance with our terms of business, you are not allowed to sell anything that might conflict with third party brands and their copyrights in your shop.
If you do not list any products that violate our terms, you do not need to take any action on your store.
We know that this may have an effect on the variety of items you can offer, but do keep in mind that we must respect the legal rights of third parties in order to be able to allow you to continue to monetize your FiveM server.
