So many people don’t understand legaleese which is making this a hard update to understand, and many of you are blowing up with excuses for roblox pushing RTHRO which isn’t even close to what this update is doing. Also, RTHRO is R15, so please, stop being ignorant.
This update is tightening their Intellectual Properties and copyright in a time where many things become more blurred daily. We’ve just experienced one of roblox’s major IP violations of all time with the collective music industry suing Roblox.
Roblox is not erasing R6/R15, however, it’s not their business model anymore. They’re focused on new things and leaving these avatar styles to their community for UGC. It’s not totally a bad thing.
This isn’t me disagreeing with their tightening use of “blox” or “ro” as they do not own the trademarks for the prefix “ro” or the suffix “blox” in gaming (Also, yes, roblox owns the trademark to Despacito Spider.)
I do find a major flaw with them doing this on the platform, but what can we do?
