Re: Sequels strife

Question. P&F have no access to SC3 copyrights right? What about story elements that cross over? For example, SC2 set up the Mycon as some kind of terraformer biots by some higher power, probably the Precursors. SC3 took that and ran with it. What if the premise found in SC3, that they were indeed d...

Re: Sequels strife

Still. Today is such a jubilant day. I have been waiting 25ish years to find out what happened to the Androsynth and we are FINALLY getting it. Plus, the blog said they will make new gameS, plural, in the UQM universe, in contrast to an earlier report I saw about how P&F were planning to make this t...

Re: Sequels strife

This one part though strikes me as being vague enough to the point of potential problems: We were able to come to a very specific understanding on the alien characters and races — how they look and act. Stardock is dropping all trademark registration of the alien names and won't use the described al...

Re: Sequels strife

It’s pretty much a slightly modified version of P&F’s original offer. Most important thing, we are getting a proper SC2 sequel. I cannot wait to find out what the Orz did to the Androsynth.

Re: Sequels strife

Ah never mind. Found this on P&F’s website:
Stardock dropped all its alien name and character trademarks and all parties have dropped their oppositions to each other’s trademarks.

Both sides recognize each other’s copyrights and will not challenge them in the future.

Re: Sequels strife

Nice. https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2019/06/stardock-and-star-control-creators-settle-lawsuits-with-mead-and-honey/ I do wonder about this part though: All of the complicated arguments about who owns which copyrights and trademarks and who they bought them from and when and what's copyrightable and...

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.

Re: Sequels strife

You know Elestan, I saw something you said earlier about how Brad seemed genuinely shocked that P&F didn’t want to work with him. I’m going to take that a step further, that the impression I’m getting from his emails and such is that he felt he had bought himself a lot of favor and credit with his f...

Re: Sequels strife

Apparently, SCO is off GOG again, something about P&F DMCAing GOG’s ISP? Anyone have any insight?
