I was just thinking about how John Fogerty was once sued basically for plaigiarizing the work he had produced as the frontman for CCR. Someone else owned the rights for CCR's music when the suit was filed and claimed that Fogerty was repackaging something that they had already secured the financial rights to.
Although it's a little crazy to think about, it is worth considering that EA still runs and profits from Dark Age of Camelot. I am still subbed to DAoC, meaning that I pay them for my love of a product that was developed largely by MJ. They do have a claim to profit from the intellectual property of that game. And so much of the development of CU seems intimately linked to our (both the gamers' and MJ's) experiences with that game.
It'd be a shame to see any sort of lawsuit, especially after CU is funded through kickstarter. What assurances can City State give to its backers that this will not be an issue? Yes, I know that MJ is a lawyer -- how are the legal aspects of this project being handled?
