Game mods : Feds took over domain name

Damn Modz domain was seized.

Update: The owner of has regained access to the domain name. Original article follows:

US Federal authorities have seized the domain, a gaming mods (profile modifications) seller.

The following message appears:

“This domain name has been seized by ICE – Homeland Security Investigations, pursuant to a seizure warrant issued by a United States District Court under the authority of 18 U.S.C. #981 and 2323.”

The message mentions “willful copyright infringement” as the reason that was shut down; the web site had only been up a couple of months, selling modified game profiles to owners of games, such as Black Ops 3, Black Ops 2 and GTA V.

Damn Modz’s Twitter account stated:

“My domain have been seized and finding out whats going on. DM me here or join my discord if you have questions!”

Apparently games companies that originally tolerated such modified gaming profiles, are nowadays banning this type of usage; players’ accounts are being terminated.

However, this is the first time we’re aware of that the sale of modified gaming profiles is akin to “copyright infringement.”

In a recent video, its publisher says that the games companies themselves are potentially eager to tap the lucrative market of game mods, monetizing it.
