Court settlement from the 90s had secret provisions apparently. :(

Macross guys hate us using their designs on our games.
Oh well, time to change the timeline and bring back the Mad Cat / Timberwolf. :P

If this wasn't already posted... Harmony is after people's heads again threatening legal
action over their designs.

Can't we all just get along like Another Century's Episode and blow each other up

Notice that they're only suing IGN, and not over the Warhammer specifically.

Aaaaannnd, thread resurrected to serve a new purpose.

 
What are they suing IGN over?  Showing off videos?

The Warhammer, so far as I know. Which is dumb, it's the Reseen one.

 
Yeah but, what are their grounds for a lawsuit?  Anyone know why they are suing IGN over the Warhammer?

Uh, wait, you don't know about the whole Unseen business?

The Warhammer was originally the Tomahawk from Macross/Robotech, which Harmony Gold owns the US rights to. FASA had access to the design by a different (legal) road, but something got confused, and it became illegal.

The legality of it is actually unclear, AFAIK, as it has never actually been hashed out in court.

Iirc, it was an out-of-court settlement?

Yes, which sets no precedent for further rulings.

I heard about BattleTech's Macross origins only recently, so I'm not that knowledgeable about the situation.  I do know that certain BattleMech's are basically ripoffs of certain Macross mecha.  My number one question is, why IGN over the Warhammer?  Why are they suing IGN over it and not Smith & Tinker?

That's not completely the Unseen Warhammer.  There have been some artistic license changes to it, methinks.  I wouldn't doubt it if IGN/S&T/whoever's getting sued wins, actually.  Not likely, of course, but I wouldn't really be surprised.

Hey, where'd the spellcheck button go?

My little bro turned 17 on the 9th (monday) and i ordered him MW4 Vengeance + Black knight expansion as well as MW4 Mercs (although 2 owns it).


It arrived yesterday and he's never been more bloody annoying. I've never seen a Ffafnir, we had a lan game yesterday and he proceeded to space-rape my Uziel :(
