22k, brilliant. I think its safe to say that the majority of work on this last leg has been down to RecoveryAnonymous :D Thanks man
The Tolkien Estate hold the rights to it, and are not particularly fond of anyone messing with the Silmarillion. This probably isnt an option.
I can guarantee that you can't suggest something we haven't already considered :P
I probably can't say too much at this point, but the license idea has been put forward to WB, but they are not willing to give us one at this point in time. THe Hobbit and all that
Youtube.com Thumb comment
I'm sure that can be arranged ;) Thanks Recovery, you really are doing a lot to help.
Anyone want some planetside 2 beta keys? Come to our facebook page: Facebook.com
Here's one to get your apetite going :P
It will be a couple of years after the last hobbit movie, if they decide not to buy it again
Great, thank-you :)
I notice that your numbers are out of date :P we have 21299 signatures now :P
Now? It has been since July
I think you'll find that we have considered absolutely everything, you can't see it, but the forums are incredibly busy.
Also I don't think you quite realize that moving to international doesn't quite work, please, do some more research into copyright law, and once you know more than our whole team + copyright lawyer. THEN and ONLY then, can you tell us what to do.
I'd just like to thank everyone for their continued support through this. Its great to know that we haven't been wasting our time :)
It certainly is :D
Good luck is fine, we're not in theater :P
We're giving away a PlanetSide 2 Beta key over on our Facebook page at 8pm GMT (7 minutes)
Stay tuned for your chance to win.
That would be against the C&D, so no. Also, since we are obeying the C&D there is no new content. There has been no development since July, we are still here though ;)
Youtube.com Comments away!
Who exactly have said they are already making videos? It'd be helpful to the team to know. PM me if you like
What do you mean by 'over rights they don't have'. WB have full rights to The Lord of the Rings within the gaming and film media.
MMOxreview has already told us that he will be doing a video on MERP along-side SkyWind. It should be out later this week
...And another video bites the dust. Sorry, couldn't stop myself :p
We are working on something, though as you can imagine, its rather tense behind the scenes.
Repeat this at the end of the week :P Not quite yet, not even at 18.5 as of now
great news! mmoxreviews says he will do a video on MERP later in the week :D
1) 'The Hobbit' pud is still around. They pay royalties of £64 a year.
2) Yes, we are working with a lawyer and are in contact with WB. We also have plans for more community action at a later date.
4)We probably won't say, but its not many. And even in those cases where someone did leave, it wasn't actually down to the C&D.
Just because we're not modding this anymore, doesn't mean you can't read the FAQ ;)
Wow, didn't expect to see you around :D Its been a long time Ced, how's it going.
One thing is, that WB are legally allowed to do this, its morally where they have a problem. We are morally on the high ground, which is where we win ;)
Mr Hurst is getting his much deserved 15 minutes of fame too :P
Thats great, he's got a pretty big fan-base too.
Dont post on the older ones, post on the latest, those are then going to be seen by the regular viewers, rather than people who have already watched it,
