Squeenix may well track them down, but there are people on the internet who are reckless enough to risk extreme legal ramifications for what they do, and a lot of 4channers fit into that description.

I already agreed they were reckless but I don't see how that could help the individuals who choose to continue hacking the one property SE seems to not want hacked. Good luck to them, I hope their lives don't get ruined over a game.

Only bad thing would be is if they totally butcher the game (though it can't be much more of a butchery than the leaked alpha), desecrating the CE team's work. Or if Square decided to sue the CE team over this other team's completion of the alpha :(

Reasoning with 4channers is like reasoning with cancer:

It has no logic, it has no rationality, it has no remorse, it has no regrets, and it has no sympathy of any kind.  It'll mess you up from the inside out until the day you die, and it will still exist afterward.

Whatever they legal ramifications they get is too good for them.

This is what I worry about. If we expected Square Enix to behave rationally we wouldn't have to worry about this, but we don't really expect Square Enix to behave rationally after what happened.

Is this where we Internet Stalk these guys and then serve them with a C&D notice?

(after which we get hit with a C&D notice by SE for no good reason)

Don't know. 

Can we even do that?  You know, send the 4channers a C&D letter?

They would just laugh, wipe their asses with the letter, and send back a picture of the poop-stained letter.

Trust me, the threat of lawsuits means nothing to them. Maybe to one of them, but to the collective, no.

Ry, it's really just four people who are working on this, and possibly other private groups. We know the names of the most insistent ones, at least. It's not the whole collective of anonymous who's modding the game. It's two or more separate groups of just two, maybe three people each. The threat of lawsuit might mean nothing to these specific people; and yes, they ARE trolls, 4channers, what have you, but they aren't the whole internet.

It just breaks my heart to think that they're probably going to butcher the remake to the point of it not having anything to do with the original.
