Ok I'm trying to get Angry Joe's attention. I left a comment on his forum informing him about Merp's situation, asking for help. He's a busy guy so he might not have had a chance to read it yet, especially considering the fact I only posted it two days ago.
If any of you guys are fans of his, I encourage you to post on the thread I started. Maybe if he sees a bunch of fans asking for his help, he'll consider it. Here's the link.
Be respectful and remember you're representing Merp.
The app likely gets them revenue somehow, even it's just the money Apple gives for the additional traffic.
I have a feeling Fox would make numerous factual errors and would likely side with WB.
They'd probably equate this to straight up piracy.
But still if it gets people talking.
I don't think Jackson is going to support this, so don't feel guilty.
If he does, I'll be the first to eat my words.
If WB didn't fear Merp, they wouldn't have sent the C&D.
Exactly. Merp only dies when we give up.
Everyone, keep heart and don't give up. I said it before and I'll say it again: WB is hoping their aloofness alone will be enough to squash this before it gets too big. Let's keep spreading the word, the amount of signers will keep going up and in the meantime, let's all try to get a hold of Angry Joe! If he made a video about Merp, it would help tremendously. He has a new forum on his site. Might be a good place to try and get his attention. That's what I'm going to try to do. If any of you do try to get his attention that way, don't come across as spam; they've been having problems with that.

Also 21,000 is a lot more than you think. Assuming Gaurdians is good, it'll probably sell 1-2 million copies. If it's good. With 21,000 and counting people learning what WB did, it'll generate bad word of mouth about their games. Couple that with the poor quality of the games themselves and you're looking at a pretty small consumer base. One in which 21,000 might not seem so small.
This is a boycott to their lotr videogames. They have absolutely no where near a 2 billion consumer base for that. In fact they probably don't even have a 2 billion consumer base for the Hobbit.
WB would be lucky if one of their Lotr games sells 1-2 million copies.

I don't think Youtube allows links. In any case if I included links it'd likely go over the (very limited) character limit allowed on youtube comments, character space that is better spent providing as much information about Merp as possible. Besides people who are interested enough in what they read will likely just google Skyrim Merp and find it.
I'm not a member of the team, I'm just a fan and I will do all in my power to inform as many people as I can about Merp. I won't give up, no matter how long it takes.
Warner Brothers will back down. We all just need to have hope and keep spreading the word about Merp to people of influence. Have faith.
Still no Merp in this week's episode...

Let's not abandon ship here.
20,000 is a lot of customers to alienate and when you count both games, Guardians and Lego, that's a ton of revenue lost for NOTHING.
This is the thing: WB sends this C&D because of the potential loss of sales Merp may or may not present; well this petition IS a loss of sales. Surely WB can understand the logic of the situation, no?
Drop the C&D and restore the good will to the market or lose them.

Still no merp this week...
What if you only showed content that was created before the C&D? Too risky?
What if you made it explicitly clear in said video that development was halted upon receiving the C&D and that the video is only to raise awareness to the whole situation? Still too risky?
Fixed problem, for now. Please thumbs comment on this different video.
Left a comment about Merp. Couldn't link directly to comment. Technical problems, couldn't wait.
I have a linked comment about Merp to that same video.
Have you guys considered posting a link to your youtube video of the heightmap tour on this page, so that people coming to sign the petition might see it too? It'd let them see a little bit of the extent of the work that was already accomplished before WB sent the Cease and Desist.
