Phil O’Shaughnessy, Creative’s vice president of corporate communications, has issued a statement on the company’s forums telling a community member to stop the unlicensed use of its technology.
The user in question had initially helped out fellow community members by making Vista drivers which are as of yet unavailable from Creative itself. However, the firm decided to draw a line under the matter when the drivers make its cards work on unsupported hardware.
“In principle we don’t have a problem with you helping users in this way, so long as they understand that any driver packages you supply are not supported by Creative,” said O’Shaughnessy. “Where we do have a problem is when technology and IP owned by Creative or other companies that Creative has licensed from, are made to run on other products for which they are not intended.”
As a consequence, all threads on this matter, including download links to the Vista driver packages, have been deleted.

Never saw this coming. Microsoft has issued a statement stamping on persistent rumours that a Vista version of Ensemble-developed action-RTS Halo Wars is in the works to compliment the Xbox 360 game.
“Halo Wars is being developed from the bottom up for the Xbox 360 and its control scheme to ensure that we deliver a groundbreaking console RTS experience. Given that, we have no plans to develop ‘Halo Wars’ for Windows Vista at this time,” said a spokesperson, here.
That enough for you? You’ll all shut up now?
