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 ;)

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,

But the point we are making, is that you wouldn't have sacrificed LOTRO if not for the C&D, so WB have cause the problem they were trying to avoid ;)

We have written a letter to send around the internet:

Dear [recipient],

I would like to inform you of a Lord of the Rings fan modification of the Elder Scrolls Skyrim, which has recently been issued a cease and desist letter from Warner Brothers Entertainment. The mod's name is MERP (Middle earth Roleplaying Project), which has been in development since before 2008 (though then for a different game). Since then, the team has matured and the mod has seen a huge boost in quality, fan support and developemnt experience.

Now we need all the support we can get from fans, other modders, game websites, famous people and whoever can help to spread news about our current situation to show Warner Bros. how much everyone cares about our project.

After contact with Warner Brothers, they did not permit us to continue the project privately with no public releases. We have contact with a lawyer who is trying to argue our case as transformative and under 'fair use', but we also need all the support we can get!

Please help our cause, and spread the news and don't let this awesome non-profit project come to an end!

We have a petition, facebook pages, and a twitter hashtag – #SaveMERP

Facebook: Facebook.com

Petition: Gopetition.com

Our main news and blog site is: Moddb.com

Please help us and spread the news!

Together we can save MERP!

--MERP fans and gamers

The money is donated to GoPetition, but they use it to advertise our petition on other sites. We never see the money... we didnt even know about it until about an hour ago :P
The licenes vary... anything from £5k to $50k

Its all done through the GoPetitions website, we have no control over it.
Also I hope you realise just how much a licence would cost... probably 100 times the donations we've had.

The c&d letter was emailed to the team's email address, this contains no real-name of any team member, has no single IP address which uses it. The c&d was issued by an attourney of Warner Bros.
They originally, nor curently intend to sue the team, it was mearly a warning.
And yes, we have contacted a lawyer.
