A person has used SimSig's assets illegaly on the massively multiplayer online game called Roblox.
If someone can refer to the creators of these assets to create a DMCA takedown on the game, I'd be grateful. Here are the assets that are being used:
--The game
--SimSig
The link to the game is here:

It doesn't only steal SimSig's assets, but also steals other assets from other developers like Armstrong Powerhouse. Please file a DMCA takedown on it. Since I had no email to post to, I'm posting it here.
End the game for the developers who worked tirelessly on their products just for them to be used profitably.
Yes, they're used profitably.
Thank you very much.

I have said previously that I'm not bothered about use of the SimSig font. For any other people's copyright, you should contact them yourself.

My 5 and 6 year old grand-daughters play Roblox, My 10 year old says it is a kids game. Looks more like someone has tried to recreate a signalling centre rather than a specific sim - but it won't have anything to actually signal if it is like the rest of the game and the thousands of, mainly child created, spin-offs.

At first glance it looks like Marylebone.

The second image is indeed a screenshot of Marylebone, and appears to have been reproduced from ]this thread. The top image is the content the OP is objecting to. That said, it's difficult to tell from the top image if the SimSig font has actually been used or if the creator has reproduced IECC-like graphics themselves. All academic anyway, given Geoff's post above.

Don't worry about it. You raised a legitimate question. If something wrong has been done - which I'm currently reserving judgement on - then it's not your fault at all.

What's bothering me is why the OP has apparently taken this as personally as he appears to have.

A commercial interest (as in "It doesn't only steal SimSig's assets, but also steals other assets from other developers like Armstrong Powerhouse")?

"The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. It is the chief occupation of mankind." - H. L. Mencken (12 September 1880 – 29 January 1956), American journalist.

If you take a look at https://www.simsig.co.uk/Forum/ThreadView/43347?postId=110147, you'll see that the user in question doesn't appear to have much interest in SimSig and only created an account to post this.

DMCA is a very blunt tool. See also this story.

I wondered if the OP was a moderator or similar on Roblox and has been asked to investigate a potential copyright breach, leading to this.

In any case, I guess Geoff has advised his position.
