I can understand that the TDM-core-team is happy and proud to be part of the T4-contest campaign.
It is more then well earned after all the free time spend keeping the original `Thief-style`alive.
But as long as no Lawyer has taken a look, and confirmed, that the contract (hopefully there will be one)
is completely `waterproof` the usage of any name, subject, even the reference to something regarding
the Thief -brand will be like a walk on very thin ice.
What happens with levels created during the contest? Can they be provided for DL on thedarkmod.com?
Can they be provided for DL after the contest is over or to be removed immediateley?
What if the contest is over and somebody creates a level with a Garrett and hammerites a.s.o. ?
As somebody who has had some SONY-lawyers in his neck after we used a name of a band which has created
one title song for the TV series SCRUBS ( Bands name was "avion" ) I`m kinda paranoid regarding
copyright. ( We were first, but that wasn`t not of interest
And it would be very sad to see the TDM going down the drain because of some small-printed.
