The VCSA has charged Travis Scott with breaching the Breach Notification Agreement, a contract between the developer and its PC builder, which outlines terms of use, and an online contract to share information.

The VCAS alleges that Travis Scott breached the breach notification contract by “stealing information” from traviscott.com, a website for the developer to offer information and code to members of the community.

The breach notification was signed off by Travis Scott on February 2, 2017, after a user shared a link to the travisscott website, which contained a file titled “travis scott.pcs”, the VCSA said in its complaint to the court.

“A member of staff of travis-scott.net had accessed the travescott.com site on February 5, 2017 and accessed travis SCOTT’s website without authorization, including without disclosing that travis was the registered owner of travis scott, which would constitute breach of the breach notice agreement,” the VCCA said.

“The travisescott.net member accessed travistscott site, including accessing the travscott.org domain and accessing the information from the travincescott.info site.”

Travis was subsequently charged with breaching a breach notice that was signed on February 8, 2017.

The charge was withdrawn on February 11, 2017 by the VCAC, the Victorian Government’s consumer protection body.

The case is due to be heard on October 17.

“We are pleased that the VCAs criminal enforcement unit is now investigating the matter, and we remain committed to protecting the rights of all consumers in the PCBuilder community,” travis owner Travis Scott said in a statement.

The travis community has reacted to the news, with users defending the developer.

“I would never condone such conduct and we stand behind our developer Travis Scott.

We have no interest in using travisSCOTT.pics as trade secrets,” one user posted on the forum.”

If travis wanted to use travis, we wouldn’t be so scared,” another said.

In a statement, travis said it was “aware of the allegations” and would be working closely with the VCAS to “determine the appropriate legal actions that will be taken against Travis Scott”.

“We have also taken steps to remove any trade secrets and any other personal information from our website and our forums and will do so in the future, if appropriate,” the developer said.

“In the meantime, we ask anyone with information on this matter to contact us and we will do our best to assist them.”

Travis will be facing a significant criminal charge that we are working with our legal team to address as quickly as possible.

“We encourage any concerned consumers to contact our team at [email protected] and we look forward to hearing from them.”
