IANAL, AFAIK, IDDQD, in the USA, gameplay cannot by copyrighted. Thus, if you remake everything from scratch, but you have a new (differently-named/looking unit) in the place of every single OTA unit (so we have "foo" "foofighter" and "bar" "barthingy" in the place of the Arm Peewee and Core AK) then it's legit.Zenka wrote:but erom is right. though nanospray wouldn't probably be copywrited. the concept might. sertaintly as long as the names Arm and Core are used it wount be IP free. (And the scrips, sounds, icons, names).
Can anyone tell us what needs to be done to make a mod atari IP free? it would be interesting to know.
Eventually all models would be remodelt, but caydr was busy with tech 1 last I've heared.
Fan-art is a copyright-violation, but is generally far more likely to get permission than anything that uses their actual content.
