Game companies are allowed to shut down any private server that contains their files...
thats why private servers are illegal...though considering chinese hosted private servers..
An english CO will not/cannot shut down a chinese hosted private server....its not their
property, files, nor hosted in US ^^...
But if its a emulation of their game...saying if you made the files yourself and not stole
it..they can't shut you down, but they can file charges against you for copying what's
theirs lol...without permission...its called copyrights lol
