Thought i'd bring this to the FH teams attention: Battleaxe Supercharged, Battlefield 2142 Downloads, Battlefield 2142 Conquest Any of those vehicles look familiar from FH 0.7?

Its a mod, therefore, there can be no copy right infringement. As far as I know, the only way they could have copy right infringement is if they patented/copy righted their work, which would be illegal due to them modding off of BF2.

Yes, but from the screen shots pretty much every model that they are using is from a different mod. Most of the vehicles and buildings look like they are taken from FH and the control tower with the BF-110 is from Desert Combat.

But at least he does credit the FH Team.

Notice the voice commands at the top. This map is for FH, thus no possible copyright infringement on FHs side. I'm not sure about the expansion stuff being put into FH though.

Even if that tower is taken from DC or whatever, he didn't mean any harm by it, and I don't think there is any harm done, even though it might be against the principles. Personally I'd just ignore it.

Actually the rights over any creative work are automatically reserved to its creator, copyright is just one of these rights. Anyway, there are a number of allowed uses of someone else's material, including what is usually called in English "fair use", quotations, etc. Also, there are countless minor variations on intellectual property laws around the world, so what's allowed in some country can easily be forbidden somewhere else.

Anyway, I think that strictly speaking that mod is infringing someone else's rights (not necessarily just copyright). In any case, IMO it would be pointlessly complex to conclusively prove in a court whose rights are involved (who made this model? and the skin? when? can you prove it?), and the nature of the infringements. So, why bother, since no harm was done?

In general, you can't effectively use anything written/coded/painted/etc. by any living individual unless you're authorized to do so. There are a few exceptions, but in practice they're quite rare.

It's removed from BF-files now, so I guess someone took action.

That tank is from the Road to Rome expansion pack. It is an Italian tank, but I am not sure what it is called.
