Bethesda is taking down all plagiarized Fallout 4 Xbox One mods. The news broke recently and it came to light that some creators are plagiarizing Fallout 4 Xbox One mods.

Such practice is commonplace in the PC modding scene but now that the modding community has access to the console versions of Fallout 4 that supports modding, it looks like copy cats are trying to do the same on consoles as well.

Thankfully, Bethesda has made it clear that it won’t allow such creators to publish content on Xbox One.

The situation got worse when many popular Fallout 4 modders refused to work on Xbox One mods. At that point, Bethesda had to take serious steps to curb Fallout 4’s modding piracy. If you feel that your Fallout 4 mod is stolen, make sure you report to Bethesda immediately.

A number of you have reported instances of users uploading Mod content that allegedly does not belong to the Mod creator. We take these reports seriously and want to protect copyright holders and authors of the Mod content shared on Bethesda.net.

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we request that anyone who believes their content was wrongfully uploaded to Bethesda.net formally submit a DMCA takedown request. Please Note: These reports should only come from mod authors and other copyright holders who believe their content was stolen.

To report these DMCA violations, please follow the steps from Section 17 of our Terms & Service and send requests — completed as detailed below — to our email address copyrightabuse@zenimax.com. In order to make this process smoother, we will be working on ways to streamline this process.

Copy cats downloaded Fallout 4 mods from Nexus Mods, a popular modding community and made minor changes before uploading them to Bethesda.Net. Reddit users first noted this and reported the problem before mainstream media got wind of this which resulted in Bethesda taking down all plagiarized Fallout 4 Mods.
