Very recently, after years of discussion and uncertainty, an EA official has confirmed that Sims 2 Paysites, sites who sell Sims 2 content made with EA tools, are against their EULA.
"Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts.
To answer your question: Yes, running a paysite featuring content for the Sims 2 is considered to be a violation of both the Electronic Arts Terms of Service and copyright law. This includes both content that is sold directly and content that is offered as part of a subscription service. Additionally, the intent behind providing these tools to the Sims 2 community was to promote the sharing of content, not commercial activity."
EA now recognizes paysites as a problem, but we want them to actually take action against them.
Paysites have broken so many rules, bullied so many people, profited off of other people\'s hard work, even broken laws. They were always protected, and they always covered themselves by saying \'EA is okay with it, so we can do what we want\'.
Well, EA is NOT okay with it. And it\'s time for them to do something about it.
If you agree that EA should take action against (and/or disallow the existence of) paysites, please sign this petition. Maybe we can make a difference if EA see what their community (and part of their livelihood) thinks.
