Automobilista Removed From Steam Over Copyright Claim
Reiza Studios’ Automobilista Early Access title has been removed from Steam momentarily due to a copyright claim from a third party.
As the studio explained:
“The Steam store page for Automobilista has been taken down due to a copyright infringement claim which had been submitted to Valve.
As is known, Automobilista packages a variety of officially licensed cars & brands alongside fictionalized, originally created content. The claim in question does not make any specific reference to content present in Automobilista supposedly in infringement of the party´s copyright – until it does, our belief is that it has no merit.
We have already taken the appropriate measures to resolve the issue ASAP, but in accordance to Valve´s policy, the process may take a few days to be completed.
In the meantime time we will continue to progress with the development of Automobilista, and intend to release another Early Access update shortly. The game is available for purchase as part of our Membership packages from our forum store.
Please understand that until the matter is fully resolved, we may not be able to discuss it.”
The availability of the game to owners is not affected as Automobilista continues to work both in online and offline mode until the matter is resolved.
