We seem to have some people well-versed in the law here. Lior said in his last video that P&F had a slightly stronger case. I dunno what do you guys think? Assuming they can fund the trial no problem, what do you see as the realistic outcome?

I was never a particular fan of Stardock, so I now have no problem boycotting any future work.

To be honest I was never excited about SCO to begin with, as I only care about what happens after the Sa-Matra according to P&F. Still, I could conceivably have been convinced to buy SCO, but definitely not anymore.

If Stardock wins, this will completely eliminate the possibility of ever getting a true sequel. I will be absolutely livid.

Kinda off topic of steam/gog/etc but EVERYONE wants both s*ardock and F&P to continue making games, right? (Saw that on reddit somewhere. its already been said is my guess)
A lot of people think this way, yes. Although personally, the longer this drags on, the more I start to hate everybody involved. :P

Likely Stardock counternotified and indemnified Valve/Steam from any damages...
Or Steam had a look at it, and decided the game is not infringing, and that the sales are worth the risk that Origins might be found infringing by a jury.

I just saw a tweet from Brad that SCO is back on Steam. Was there some update we didn’t hear about?

By 'great' do you mean 'not great at all' or am I missing an implication?
Yeah sorry that didn't read well. But indeed it would be a "great" outcome for them since they did actually steal their ideas and content for Origins. What I was implying was "they would be lucky to even get this...".

Sarcasm is badly transferred via the electronic lines of the InterWebs.

That email will hurt Stardock even more.
Even if the court finds that SC:O is not infringing SC2 copyrights, the court might deny damages for the faulty DMCA, because the e-mail basically told FF and PR that Stardock will use all aliens and settings from SC2, and that therefore Origins is infringing, and therefore FFand PR had to contest SC:O distribution because they could reasonably expect infringing material inside the game.
Which would be a great outcome for Stardock considering their current predicament where they tried to trademark the copyrighted aliens they also created, then published, content for.
