URGENT NEWS. iCPv3 may be shutting down forever, well let’s just start off from the basics.
Joe12387 (former iCPv3 staff) tweeted “This is hilarious. Legit court papers showing up in my inbox. Pics on its way. Charles’s screwed.” he then tweeted “Good ‘ol lawsuit papers.” and then a link to a screenshot of a lawsuit – by Disney and he then tweeted “Alright, talked with the law firm, just have to sign a few things and I’m off the hook. Although, Charles is screwed. Screwed hard.”
Then, iCPv3.com was updated to say:
“A certain person has stated we’re being sued. While this isn’t trustable, there is a bigger issue that this has brought to my attention:
[21:59] Likely absolute fake
[21:59] But this brought to my attention a bigger issue
[21:59] Just because Linode Legal said it was Legal… it doesn’t mean it’s legal
Secondarily, after some contemplation, I realized this. Even if I’m not breaking any laws, why should I make money from something
that partially uses someone else’s work? Is that fair? No. Disney grossly overcharge, but that isn’t a reason for me to be able to profit from their work…
Basically, iCP stops now.”
So this means that iCPv3 will be over – forever.
However, there is some possible good news.
iRath (creator of iCP itself, most known for iCPv2) has once again started back up another Club Penguin private server. It seems that they are ready for it to be released – they just need to get a server up and running. UPDATE: iRath and the team of the new Club Penguin private server DOES have a server but it is not running for the public at the moment.
UPDATE: He has quit his private server, so iCPro3 won’t be starting up, sorry guys.
