Richie Branson felt one thing was missing from Fallout 4’s gloomy post-apocalypse Boston, and that was the lack of anything Red Sox related. So, earlier this week, he set out to do something about that, creating a mod that inserts Red Sox jerseys into the game. Specifically, Branson wanted to get in Ortiz’s jersey, because, as he explains it, “”He’s big, he’s massive, so I figured he’d be the right one to survive the apocalypse.”
It’s an amusing and totally inoffensive mod, but Major League Baseball is not even a little bit happy about it. A spokesman for the MLB went so far as to say “The use of these marks is an infringement of our rights. We plan to enforce those rights,” though Branson has yet to hear anything from the MLB directly. He admits, however, the the high cost of going to court over a tiny little mod would not be worth it, and that he would comply with a take down notice should he receive one. It’s important to point out that Branson’s mod is distributed for free, and so how much he’s actually infringing on a copyright is debatable.
