HTC Threatens shipped-roms.com
Thanks to a tip from XDA moderator hilaireg, which was based on a thread started by XDA member ongoingissues, we just learned that HTC decided to raise the legal flag against one of our developer’s website. More specifically, a website called shipped-roms.com, which is maintained by our very own XDA member conflipper. For those of you not familiar with the site, it is meant as a repository for shipped roms (hence, the name of the site) for all devices, including devices going as far back as the Blue Angel. HTC has claimed that the roms being hosted in there represent illegal distribution of Intellectual Property, and therefore has sent a “take down” notice to conflipper.
The website is question was only set up to aid younger chefs in the cooking process and also to help those who needed to return their devices to stock, which happens to be complicated for older devices since the roms are no longer distributed by either HTC or the carriers for these devices.
You can find more information in the original thread and the full letter can be found on the Shipped Roms website.
