If being naive was a crime, a lot of us (me included) would be in jail.
Better to just deal with the situation we are in now and make the best of a it.

As much as GWs behaviour is annoying IMO moreso is the people who have posted threads on other forums organising joint orders and even putting PDFs online. They might as well have emailed lenton themselves


Someone did that?! Ok, my nerd rage has been entirely redirected!

Yeah, at least one person did, maybe two. :tut

Hi!

why isn't this whole business conducted via a shadow company in some country that certain annoying manufacturers (Gee doublejuu) can't reach? Somewhere nice and warm maybe? Ecuador? I volunteer to set up shop there :P

Or just be done using the personal email addresses, rather than PM's?

I actually looked into it while living in Vietnam, but postage was atrocious.

Having the public photobucket may have been a bad idea too, as if someone saw a single image they could easily click through to see them all. If there were just a few they may have been overlooked, but the amount may have triggered the reaction.

As sad as it is I'm hoping it might just be a one-off rather than more wide-spread...

Yeah in all honesty, TC isn't likely to show up on anyone's radar provided nothing completely egregious is happening. Let's be real here: We're not important enough to pay attention to. Usually stuff like this gets noticed because someone is running their mouth off and did something dumb (like playing in a GW store and talking about the proxies and wanting to be a "big man" [or woman-let's not be sexist]).

Nerd rage-fear it :)

BURN THE WITCH!!! OK all joking aside I am glad to hear (read actually) that no one has called for names and calls for retribution. No time to turn on ourselves.

BTW, someone earlier questioned if "compatible with" 3rd party add-ons are kosher. So first of all, IANAIPL and in no way providing legal advice or advocating anything (again) but in general it is legal in the US provided a slew of conditions are met (sorry I am not a subject of the Queen so have no clue about what flies in our progenitor country :)). Usually most people side step the issues by simply stating "compatible with a most 6mm figures" and making sure there's a clearly documented inspiration from either a historical or cultural source, is not a direct copy of an existing design, etc. For instance the concept of a minigun is not able to be claimed to be IP. A debigerized version of an assault cannon IS. If I made a vehicle mounted 6mm minigun inspired by the Phalanx CIWS with a round nubbin that might fit a GW whirlwind, EW range, or stuff from C&C, I'd probably have a strong leg to stand on.

In addition, since we've started armchair lawyering, Chapterhouse studios is probably going to loose not due to any add-on kits and the claim that the disclaimer text wasn't up to snuff but because they actually have produced models with direct copies of copyright work (imperial aquilas and the like). GW is a bit pissed also that they get screwed on the whole SW thunder wolves or whatever the hell those things are called and so that's probably what finally started the whole pissing contest.

I wasn't aware chapterhouse was probably going to lose, the analysis I've read seems to range from 'destroy GW for picking on chs' to 'burn chs for stealing from GW'. Seems pretty open to debate

I'm confused - My posts regarding my line of 6mm alien stand-ins have been deleted, though I have taken pains to make sure they are different enough from GW minis to avoid any problems....

Is this not allowed as well?

just pm cybershadow reminding him to check through it - if there's no issues he'll replace it.

What really annoying is that we even lost the Otter parts that were new and had no IP issues..

I my eyes what Otter did was close, but they were not copies, even small copies.. (in fact I enjoyed seeing just how different they was) there was many many many differences and I hope the lawyers see this... otherwise GW has IP rights over a huge range of gaming that is not even theirs...

My missile launchers got removed here too.. They was better detailed, and a different shape, yet removed here... and I was not even contacted about said removal... They was addon parts...

GW has more or less shut the interesting aspect of this forum, and its not even contacted this forum !!!

Its like banning all cars.... when just a couple of types have a fault.... this is how its appearing..
It may not be the intention, but appearances are what matter..

Cybershadow took down all potential problem threads (including mine). He's also got to work his way through them (since he's legally responsible)

Give him time. I liked your add-on ideas. Do you fancy retooling them for a different IP such as World of Blighty?

I will adjust to what I understand would be a viable tactical missile launcher.., to be honest, it wont be that different, just less curvy..

Yes, my apologies for any missing threads currently. I am working through them (although I am on holiday right now) and if there is a particular thread that you want addressed just drop me a note and I will fast track it. Thanks for your patience.
