Hello users,

Is it forbidden to set up a server in AQW? Did Artix Entertainment share the files themselves? or the files were stolen by hackers?

PvP Server report on battleon: https://portal.battleon.com/help/sendmail2.asp?mode=30

What do you think?

(I am sorry for my English.)

Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer and if you're wanting legal advise on this, then it's probably best to get in contact with a legal advisor before throwing your private server files on your website(s).

There are a few things that could get one in trouble when operating a private server:

  1. Sharing copyrighted images/music/video
  2. Using copyrighted images/music/video
  3. Claiming ownership of said copyrighted images/music/video
  4. Having malicious intent with the site (phishing, honeypot, spreading malware/malicious scripts)
  5. Profiting off of the private server files by means of user subscriptions or by means of selling site code

Again I'm not a lawyer nor am I a legal advisor and my list is not all-encompassing when it comes to ways that you can get into legal trouble with Artix Entertainment when hosting a private server.

Most private servers that I see being shared do not include any of the original SWF files and rely on the user grabbing their own SWF files from the AQW website.

Augoeides does include this disclaimer whenever users go to register for an account on their website: http://augoeides.world/disclaimer
Speaking of Augoeides they also include an upgrade page where you can pay for a temporary account upgrade (subscription) and even pay for premium in-game currency (similar to the Dragon Coins system in DF)

I still feel that this is a legal grey-area aside from the copyright infringement claims.
It also helps to be hosting the server outside of the United States as well.

In the case of Augoeides, they're using GoDaddy webhosting where their site is being hosted on a server in Scottsdale, Arizona: http://whoisweb.info/augoeides.org.html
So this is where I'm unable to proceed any further based on my limited understanding of the legal implications of running a private server.
