Legal

TRADUKO Soft is a fan translation group. This means that all projects are fan-made and legally classified as such. All games translated by us are credited to their original creator(s). We claim no rights to the copyright, trademarks, likeness, or any other type of usage that is not classified as fair-use, nor do we claim any rights to anything our projects represent. All projects affiliated with TRADUKO Soft and/or done by TRADUKO Soft are distributed legally with their own patching tool, with credits given to the developers of the game, as well as any other legal rights. Piracy of any sorts is not condoned by TRADUKO Soft, and all unauthorized uploads on third-party websites unrelated to TRADUKO Soft are not endorsed, sponsored, or hosted by us. Every patch requires a legal copy of the software in order to use a translation patch for the game. What this means is that TRADUKO Soft follows the Copyright Act of 1976, which allows projects such as these to be done under fair-use with no copyright infringement to the legal owners. We also follow all DMCA guidelines. For more information, please refer to section 17 U.S.C. §§ 101-810, which can also be found at the following link: http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.html#107 (Please note that TRADUKO Soft is not affiliated with the website linked and/or any third-party websites) The views expressed in any of our projects do not necessarily reflect the views of those at TRADUKO Soft. Any resemblances to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.
