Dear owner of ______PandoraMS ________:
We, Nexon, the developer of online games including MapleStory and other massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG), have given notification for the unauthorized activities of below:
(a) the setting up of and/or operation of unauthorized MapleStory game servers, which redirect games players from Nexon's official game servers; and/or
(b) the unauthorized access to and use of Nexon's client software for the creation of and misuse of illegal software; and/or
(c) the use of unauthorized client patch programs to improperly interfere in the game and undermine the game play for other users of MMORPG; and/or
(d) the setting up of and/or operation of forum channels, which promote active involvement in and enable any of the above (a) – (c) activities.
You have been resisted to our request to cease and desist the above activities. We hereby are giving final chance by requesting you to immediately cease and desist from the unauthorized and illegal activities described above upon receiving this letter. However, if you still continue the infringement activities, we will direct this matter to our appointed attorney and you may be subject to legal proceedings and we may enforce our rights to the full extent allowable under the law. As we already informed, such legal proceedings against you may seek financial damages in the maximum amount allowed, an injunction to restrain your infringing activity, attorneys' fees, costs, interest, and the seizure and/or destruction of all infringing copies of our intellectual property and all equipment involved in such infringing activities. In addition to civil proceedings, we also reserve our rights to report your illegal actions to the criminal authorities where appropriate.
We reserve our right to take any and all allowable actions against you in order to protect our business interests and intellectual property rights. And such action may be taken without further notice to you.
We once again remind you that this is our last notification to you and that this matter will be directed to our appointed attorney if you continue the abovementioned unauthorized activities.
We are hopeful that you will choose to take the path of least resistance, so that both you and NEXON may quickly put this to rest.
Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss this matter.
