I don't know if you all know what's going on with http://www.doom3maps.de/
Here's the story:
1. Gamestar showed new exclusive Doom3 screenshots.
-- Doom3maps presented the scans on their homepage.
-- ID reacted and forbid doom3maps to use this pictures.
-- That was ok, cause the people from d3m knew that the pictures were to hot.
2. Some other magazine showed the pictures.
-- Again D3m presented the scans on their homepage.
-- ID reacted and forbid doom3maps to use this pictures, again.
-- Hmm.. At this moment the pics were some weeks old and already everybody had seen them. So it wasnt that annoying.
3. The screenshots were released on some webpage.
-- D3m thought that now the pictures allowed to be shown to public and presented them again at their homepage.
-- ID reacted and forbid doom3maps to use this pictures, again and again.
-- That annoyed the people from d3m very much, cause ID is paying NO attention to its fans! (their words not mine)
So Doom3maps decided to protest and shut down their site (which recently re-opened.) During which time Todd Hollenshead emailed them with a response to what they were doing.
