    Wait... what?
    Some people rushed to the modder's side against a corporation that stole his code and he is like "you did it to start a ####storm"?

    really now?

    With some internets people you can't really tell. There are enough brand fans who would like to stir things up rather than rushing to his side.

    The key word was rushing, at least for me it was, some things take time to sort out.

    Well sure, there are the troll fanboys out there for every brand but then again...
    In this situations it is never like "hey this company stole code from this guy, maybe they did stole by accident, let's take it easy".
    I mean you don't stole by mistake, you stole something and you know what you do.
    So if there is not a fierce response from a good portion of the internet, it is very much likely that the company who stole from the small developer will just walk away, because the small developer doesn't have the money move against them in a court and there is not any fears from the company for their image (since there is not much bad publicity).

    At least this just my opinion on this, you go full force from the start or nothing happens.

    I personally would take a wait and see approach, yes they stole code and yes they didn't initially credit who they took it from, however everyone makes mistakes and IMO it's more about how someone reacts when a mistake is brought to their attention than the mistake its self, it just feels we, as a society, take offense at the smallest things nowadays.
