:twisted: I got an idea... what if someone went to the old site, episode seven, (I've only seen it once) like, copied everything -- and published it! I'm not saying me, but you know if everybody went there it must have something worth reading on it. They could split the profits evenly, and maybe even make a bunch of books. If you don't like it and someone tries it anyway, just don't look at me... 9-|

Well, if someone did that, I'm sure we could claim somekind of copyright...

There have been a few talks of writing a VII novel, just for our own entertainment, but I would probably never publish it. Just think of all the copyright infringements...

Anyone that tried would have their asses sued off by a dozen different media giants.:p

See guys? There's some advantage to having these crossovers! >_>

That and CMAC claim copyright on everything that isn't already subject to copyright, so if anyone were to try and clandestinely earn themselves some more money they would get bitch-slapped by whichever forum members lived closest to them...

They'd get sued too, probably...

Media giants? Would that mean you? and what advantage are you talking about?

Lucasfilm will be the big one. And since someone insisted on having Shayera Hol in this, a couple of the comic companies as well.

That's only the beginning.

*sicks Darkseid and his minions on Shy*

I don't think I've ever considered them lovable at all...overplayed and overhyped perhaps, but never lovable. :P


Anyways so we don't stray too far off topic, I've oft wondered about writing a whole fanfic for my character Kal just for the hell of it, maybe expand some more on his backstory and such. Never really got around to it though.

I thought Lucasfilm scattered the rights to the four winds... why else would there be garbage out there like Black Fleet and such?

That's the difference right there. Lucas extended an invitation to them to play in his sandbox. But it's still all a part of Lucasfilm. We're just a fan site and we're not high enough on Lucas' radar to enjoy the same benefits. If Lucas were to take notice of us at all, it would be to shut us down.

That doesn't sound right... I'm sure there's a quote on Wookieepedia that pertains to this, and if he lets people like that use his good name, why would he- oh.

Yes, anything sold for money out there carrying the Star Wars name has Lucas' authorization, or it's against trademark laws.

Anyway, what if we got the copyright, what then?

Ha, we wouldn't. And I have no desire to do that, and I don't think anyone else seriously does, because that would bring on soooo many complications..

For one we'd have to bid hundreds of thousands of monies to get our hands on the said licence, and then...we'd have lost money because we're a non-profit fan-run RPG...best to leave these things alone.
