Re: Report from an Inside Look at the Proving Grounds

I think I'll stick with the camo theme and choose Granite Grey! :D
Or at least some color indigenous to the surrounding rock strata!

Re: Report from an Inside Look at the Proving Grounds

I have high hopes that they will fix and continue to develop things appropriately. It's clear that the Sol Contingency team wants to produce an excellent game that will go down in history as the “The next true 6DOF game.” And I think they will. ALL RIGHT POXY! That is definitely a cool write up, an...

Re: Copyright Conundrum

When you copyright something, you're only protecting that exact expression of something That's the degree of copying that should worry you -- not "kind of resembles things done before", but "copies wholesale from some other source". Well, if that's the norm for general suits - then we don't need to...

Re: Copyright Conundrum

In short - I wouldn't worry about the accidental shape and form factor similarities of your work to others, unless you've got like a 38-page thread going hoarding up sci-fi artwork from all corners of deviant art or something. LOL No laws against inspiration, right? Thanks Hawk!, & I agree - it's p...

Re: Copyright Conundrum

About patents yeah, but that's not the part I'm talking about. What I mean to say is that yes it's not possible to create something original that parts of it haven't been done before, but that doesn't actually matter as much as you'd think. Artists still manage to create art and not get sued for cr...

Re: Copyright Conundrum

I had a friend who was absolutely BRILLIANT, but quite poor. He couldn't afford patents, so even though he had good ideas, he wasn't ever able to spend $300+ on patents. Of course, he later found out most of his most ingenious inventions had already been invented and patented. So it's quite sad abo...

Re: Copyright Conundrum

Eliminate the concept patent and copyright. It's only holding inventors and creators back. Especially the patent side of this. Another viewpoint, but straight to the heart of the matter - while any inventive person would have to know all the in's & out's of every patent made to be able to create so...
