Yeah, your right. I wasn't trying to say that they were making up stuff, or that they were doing it because their jobs were on the line.
(I just noticed how much it sounded like I was.)

I remember how much people where bashing on Bethesda when their lawyers filed copyright infringement against Mojang for Scrolls. So I wanted to make sure that people shouldn't boycott WB because their lawyers are aggressive.

I admit that I probably wasn't thinking straight and was a little angry, and that I probably should have put some more thought into that comment.

But like I said, you just need to stress that you are doing it with your own assets and that you don't aim to get money from it. You could maybe offer to change the name of the project if they try to get you for infringing the copyright of one of their games/products.

If I was in your guys' situation, I would make sure that you stressed a few things:
1. MERP is a MOD.
2. MERP is NOT going to be sold
3. All of the assets being used are made by YOU, or came with Skyrim.
4. The mod is being called "Middle Earth Roleplay Project," not "Lord of the Rings: Skyrim," so it will rarely conflict with anything produced by WB, unless they decided to name their next game "Middle Earth" or something like that.

I'm pretty sure mods would be covered under the Fair Use Act as long as you use assets created by you. I've been following the MERP for a few years now and I haven't seen anything that you didn't make. Just try to keep a level head and make sure they understand what you guys are trying to do.

I think that this might be a case where the lawyers have nothing to do, and they "conveniently" stumbled upon something that might infringe on WB's copyrights. I almost consider lawyers separate from the company they work for. They're probably doing this just to keep there jobs.

With CE3 it can be a standalone game rather than a mod.

(Omegalodon picks up car)

Girl: "I what are you doing?"

Omegalodon: "RRRAAWWWR!!!" (Opens door and puts on nose)

Girl: "I don't think you can fit in there..." (Omegalodon disappears) "Where did you go?!" (sees car driving around like crazy) "Oh my god, he's unstoppable!"

END

Anyway, this is absolutely amazing! Reminds me of a Godzilla game, and Rampage.

Are you going to do anything about Farscape? I think that would be pretty sweet!
