    Hey there

    So I have several websites about "Cheating" a game (I dont have working cheats it's all fake)

    I put a widget so they have to fill a survey in order to get the "cheat"

    Anyway , I have some of the game's images around the site etc

    Can that get me in copyrights trouble ? What should I do ?

    A reply will be really appreciated (Thanks + rep) :)

    No.

    Rather, quite interestingly, some game publishers, themselves sell out these code to huge bloggers, just to promote their game.

    So, you're safe. Best of luck.

    Also if your worried about image copyrights... just alter them a bit so they aint original, they are fan-remakes and it will take that copyright crap out of those images.

    You can get in trouble with the CPA network you use the widget with. A lot of networks will ban your account if you provide fake or no content after the user completes the offer

    I've been running a network of game cheats sites for years. Chances are if you're in the niche you've seen them. I've never had any problems.

    One thing about images is never to put their logo of the game directly on your site. I've received a DMCA in my early years for doing this :p

    Sounds like you're running a 'cheat' site for an online game, such as neopets, instead of a console game. If thats the case, expect a C&D.

    But cause he is sharing fake program which does not work, OP should be in favour cause company like neopets cant procecute someone for having non-working hack program... maybe in america but nowhere else.

    EDIT: also they need proof that their system has been hacked by OP's software, if they cant prove this, you should try to win them cause you can prove that the program does not work by showing source code at court and ask evidence of the damages.

    Just make sure that there are at least noticeable differences between your site and the existing sites, or that might get you into hot water. Play safe.
