Montreal Transit Threatens Lawsuit Over Counter-Strike Map Andy Chalk | 18 Feb 2013 17:39
The Societe de transport de Montreal is worried that a Counter-Strike map set in one of its subway stations will "create panic" among its users.
Despite its age and popularity, there has apparently never been a Counter-Strike map specifically set in the Great White North. Diego Liatis and some friends thus decided to take the job on themselves, and came up with what appears to be a pretty decent rendition of Montreal's Berri-UQAM station. But the work has attracted the attention of the city's transit authority, and not in a good way.
Liatis said the STM threatened him with a $50,000 fine plus court costs if the map is released to the public. An STM representative confirmed that legal action is being considered but would not comment further.
