Too Long; Didn't Read

Take-Two Interactive has sued several programmers and Grand Theft Auto enthusiasts behind the re3 and reVC fan projects. The projects were a pair of reverse engineered releases of GTA 3 and Vice City. In response to the projects, the company filed a DMCA takedown notice to remove the content from Github. The team behind the projects had the option of filing a counter-notice if it was confident that its work is permitted under copyright law. After that time expired, the coding platform restored ‘re3’ and ‘reVC’ to Github where the code was stored.
