1. removal of user generated content which violates T&C is fair game to me. Users should be more careful to learn their rights before submitting the content.
2. allowing this content in the first place and removing it on later date is very unfair, as it gives appearance that Sony does not really care for its T&C and must resorts to informers to enforce it. They should not have provided the feature if they do not want to policy it themself.
Anyway, I'm not affected as I do not do any business with Sony, having learned about trojans they infected their music CDs with. Although it was long time ago, corporate culture do not change. I think those affected learned the same lesson.
Mine's the one with another corporation's logo on the back
Don't be daft.
If you're going to create a level and plaster it with tits, Mario, Sonic and Luke Skywalker snogging Darth, then don't bitch and moan when it gets pulled.
Perhaps a way around this is a public/private flag for the user define content. Private maps can be accessed by a pre-approved group of friends with no public viewing.
Took my level down
