Quote from: Puritan on 16 February 2016, 08:13:50First of all, the video is looking good.I've turned down hosting of TC's containing material with copyrights issues a few times.I have to follow our national laws in these matters since the server is located domestically.

If it isn't Disney, then I wouldn't worry.(i'm pretty sure you already knew that)
Quote from: Forge on 17 February 2016, 16:15:03Well tread lightly because Disney is insane about protecting their characters & i.p.they'd just as soon sue you for infringement as send you a c&d.on the other side Gearbox now has the Duke Nukem i.p. & they can be just as stupida stand alone game at this time is pretty risky
Quote from: DeeperThought on 17 February 2016, 20:02:54That sounds scary, but I can't find any evidence that either company has ever gone straight into lawsuit without a C&D first in a case even remotely like this. It's one thing if you are selling fake Disney merchandise, but this would be a free game mod. AFAIK there is no precedent for suing someone for a free game mod without even warning them first. Still, I see your point: these are not friendly IP owners.
