How is GotP progressing?
I assume it's on hold until the legal case is resolved. Why would they work on it when they might not be allowed to release it?

Re: Sequels strife

I understand it not initially being evident that their expression of wanting to keep the rights exclusive for their own future plans meant they would be going forward in the near future. Well, for generous values of "near future"; it was still another four years before P&F announced GotP. And while...

Re: Sequels strife

So Brad figured out, on his own, that F&P might be planning their own sequel, which he expressed support for before the public announcement and without any direct confirmation from F&P. He didn't even need to figure it out on his own; P&F told him they had plans shortly after he bought the trademar...

Re: Sequels strife

Elestan, do you have any news regarding on how the proceedings are going? I know that both parties asked for delays..but we're looking at how much time here ? At what step this cause is at the moment? The revised scheduling order puts the trial on August 25, 2019. The parties have just filed what s...

Re: Sequels strife

For anyone who happens to check here before seeing it in the UQM forums or reddit, Stardock is now claiming ownership of UQM. To be precise, they are claiming that Paul and Fred did not own the copyrights to UQM, and therefore could not have legitimately open-sourced it in the first place, and that...

Re: Stardock CEO threatens to "eliminate" this community

I'm inclined to disbelieve the authenticity of that quote. It sounds like something a cartoon supervillain would say, rather than a real person. Based on the reactions from Stardock supporters with access to that Discord channel, I believe it is authentic. If it was fake, they''d be saying so. Loud...

Stardock CEO threatens to "eliminate" this community

So, remember when Brad said: I'm not a lawyer so I am not going to make speculate on things like the Ur-Quan Masters other than to say Stardock is glad it exists andis supportive of that effort and will never take any action to interfere with it. Well, apparently his position in Stardock's private f...

Re: Sequels strife

Interestingly quiet on this front for a while. Have the sides actually settled? Did they just agree to drop the issue? Entirely? Till after Origins release? It looks like Stardock removed (pending the outcome of the case) most of the SC2 content to reduce the risk of P&F blocking the release of SC:...

Re: Sequels strife

...the likely intent is to try to bleed Fred and Paul dry by dragging things out as long as possible, until they have no choice but to settle at a disadvantage. Well, someone is pledging a match for all donations to P&F's defense fund between now and Saturday, so this would seem to be the right tim...
