I don't understand why people think they can just pick up a phone and make a call to such a large company any time they want to...
The nerve of some...
What does this accomplish?? NOTHING...
Well young/old and still playing those phone games I suppose.
EA doesn't give a rats behind how many phone calls they get.
They have people that are situated in little cubby cubes just for this
kind of call....And you thought you were getting the executive office?? HA

I work for a big corporation and yes we've customer relation reps in the legal department. By the way I find interesting that in one year you found the time to post only twice: the post I just quoted plus another one pointing directly to a paysite. Makes me wonder... Plus... how come that people that can find money to give to paysites cannot support Insimenator?

In fact, I can't think of a cogent business reason that EA would want to slow down fan artists; while at the same time, I can think of lots of business reasons that they wouldn't want fan artists to go looking for a competing game to support. Smiley

In case you think that your "irony" got lost, it didn't, many just chose to ignore it. You're mixing intentionally free fansites with paysites. Many others make a distinction, you know?
Paysites take money out of the pockets of the same simmers that could buy one expansion more. From a business point of view why should EA support paysites? On the other side I can see very good business reasons to support real fansites, as in free fansites.  
I wonder where paysiters would go looking for a "competing game" that allows them to get currency for custom content.

Please look at the link I gave a few posts above - it is an announcement on the EA site that the EULA of the Content Manager is now the official EULA for the game itself and all expansions.

Actually that's a link to a post by Maxoid that is not part of the legal office of EA. Seems that the legal office of EA states that the Content Manager EULA sends you to the EULA you received with your game, the one with non-commercial references.  
That would make sense since we didn't accept any other agreement.

I would suggest to everybody really interested on this matter to call 650-628-1500 press 0 and ask to speak to the legal department.
