Re: Sequels strife

Question. P&F have no access to SC3 copyrights right? What about story elements that cross over? Unless the settlement changed things, P&F own the parts of SC3 that are derived from SC2, which would include such "cross over" elements. I'm pretty sure that they already said in interviews that the My...

Re: Sequels strife

Is "Frungy Games inc." directly Paul and Fred? I think this document is in parallel legal plane to the sequels and copyrights thing. It was a company started by Paul and Fred during the suit, with the intention of giving it their IP and trying to substitute it into the suit in their place. That gam...

Re: Sequels strife

A document filed at the Trademark Appeals Board today indicates that the parties have reached a settlement. Terms are not yet known, other than that P&F are no longer opposing the "Star Control" mark.

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

If you guys are referring to wondering whether or not I ever actually activated the Utwig Bomb… of course I did!… but not before making the necessary precaution of saving my save game file to a separate location prior… I'm curious to see how you'll explain this, as your time portal system can't hel...

Re: Sequels strife

That’s basically the agreement P&F offered last year. I’d hope Stardock would take a bigger hit now that they’ve seen they’re losing this case. We don't know anything with certainty about who is winning or losing; the Court's rulings so far have all been procedural, and never reached the merits of ...

Re: Sequels strife

Any realistic speculation on what the terms of the settlement might be? Anything anyone (including me) says at this point is going to be pure speculation. If I were to guess, I would say that the highest probability outcome is a "let's walk away" agreement, wherein both sides keep the rights they w...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

I also find it curious why the Druuge wouldn’t even throw out an offer for another Deep Children Egg for one of these worthless trinkets. I guess 2 is all they need. If you could sell off all of your Egg Casings, you could render the game unwinnable. ------------------------------------------------...

Re: Sequels strife

So what exactly does “Summary Judgment” do then? I though it was in used lieu of a trial. Or is a trial what happens when the judge has insufficient information to rule? In a court case, there are usually two types of questions to be answered: Questions of fact, i.e. "What actually happened?", and ...

Re: Sequels strife

What happens in October? Or was that an arbitrary date? (And why does this feel like a pun?) That's when the summary judgement motions need to be filed, where both sides need to clearly spell out their legal arguments, so that the Judge can rule on them in November. After that, there's a mandatory ...

Anything new? I have to sue someone myself, so it reminded me of this thread.
Nope. Not likely to be any major news until October.
