    Default RPCS3's Patreon page receives DMCA notice from Atlus USA

    This weekend Patreon received a DMCA (copyright infringement) notice for the Patreon page for the Playstation 3 emulator RPCS3. They claimed that the emulator was infringing on their copyright as it allows emulation of Persona 5, but in order to do so would require you to bypass their DRM.

    Fortunately Patreon realized that taking down funding for an emulator because of a single game doesn't make sense and did not comply with Atlus' request. But to be on the safe side any reference to Persona 5 has been removed from RPCS3's Patreon page and website. More information: Atlus' official statement, RPCS3 team's response and this news even made it to Gamasutra.

    I guess Atlus now needs to learn that DMCA notices don't quite work that way and also what the Streisand effect is.

    I heard about this, don't see why Atlus would even bother, I doubt there are a ton of people trying to play p5 on RPCS3
