Not true. Under U.S. copyright law, any modification using an intellectual-property-holder's material can be sent a cease & desist order.Ravendust said:It's not illegal for an amateur group to make an unlicenced product which they do not profit from. If anything, they're generating more interest in DBZ. If they started charging for ESF then it would be a different story, but they're not, so it isn't.
Kurt is right. ESF is not protected by "fair use."Spunky said:http://www.nolo.com/article.cfm/objectID/C3E49F67-1AA3-4293-9312FE5C119B5806/310/276/240/ART/
ESF is well protected by the Fair Use Act.
What I said is the truth. I was not talking about ZEQ2 or ZEQ2's position. I was talking about the legality of mods.Revitalized Prince said:Disregard anything SailorAlea said. If you actually buy into any of that I'd laugh at you. ZEQ2 got lazy, just like all the others.
They can't simply replace the team members that live in countries respecting international copyrights law. Besides, it would be weird playing a DBZ game made in Swedish.I'm pretty sure it was either laziness or they tried to make a profit out of it in some way, either way I don't believe the whole legal notice. I'm sure there were people that weren't from America who couldve gotten a server from some other country to continue the work under those laws.
