Kigen filed a DMCA takedown notice, forcing us to remove it or risk all of AM being cut off

It's illegal to distribute until the situation is resolved with Kigen.

*illegal to distribute here, since we've already received a takedown notice for it. Users that haven't been issues a takedown notice or are in other jurisdictions are under different circumstances.

We've not heard from any lawyer on his side, but the DMCA doesn't require that. Anyone can demand that something be taken down and then compliance is required. You have to take it up with that party if you believe anything to be wrong with it.

Kigen is actually working to benefit cheaters (working as an anti-anti-cheat, if you will) by trying to disallow anyone from using SMAC.

All good I have the latest version for my server

But serriously like you mentioned, its not much if any of his code, and just remove the smac_kac_banlist.
It's rather sad it all came to this, and I'm trying my best not to be rude here, but some people need to be a bit more patiant. People have real life's, and do not always have time, even though they have the best intentions to do something in due time.

What other parts besides the obvious "kac_banlist" is "his" ? And is it much work to replace ?
