NBA 2K18 likes to market player creativity by allowing them to create custom shirts in MyCareer mode. These custom shirts can then get NBA 2K18 MT voted by the community to come to be in-game things for buy. The issue is that some players have been designing shirts with real-life copyrights on them and 2K is now taking them away.

The cause for the removal of those shirts is simply because they are developed featuring copyrighted components. Things like designer brands including Supreme, logos from other sports organizations like the NFL, and other copyrighted material just like the Batman logo, have all been noticed on custom shirt styles. And because they are being sold for actual money (by means of Virtual Currency, or VC) it is possible to see how this could grow to be messy from a legal standpoint.

On reddit, ResetEra, and Kotaku, you can find reports coming out about these shirts' removal from the game. One user on ResetEra stated that 10 custom shirts of theirs (priced at 3,500 VC each and every) were removed without explanation. 2K assistance supplied them a one-time 10,000 VC payout, but the player refused and asked for a complete refund.

No doubt this is not what 2K had in thoughts when custom shirts became readily available in the myPark mode. At the same time, you cannot definitely promote an internet service for players to Buy MT Coins create custom streetwear without the need of them producing, you know, actual streetwear.

Irrespective of whether this implies alterations will come towards the shirt creator to clamp down on copyright infringements are coming, or if 2K will basically continue to take down shirt styles prior to they become offered for sale stay to be noticed.


2K has not responded for the circumstance, but we will update the story with any new developments.
