I'm always amazed so many people are under the impression GW rips off Blizzard all the time, considering starcraft and warcraft exist because Blizzard tried and failed to get a license from GW to produce their games, so made their own versions (no resemblance at all between marines and space marines, nids and zerg, protoss and eldar, nope).shintakie10 said:1990 eh? Yeah, that predates Warcraft Orcs and Humans by 4ish years so you're right. Shouldn't be an issue.Zykon TheLich said:KeyMaster45 said:Gamesworkshop better be careful, giving their game the subheading of "Deathwing" steps on Blizzard's copyright for their villain character named "Deathwing". (at least I think so)Unlikely, seeing as the original Deathwing came out in 1990 and the names refer to very different things.shintakie10 said:I was thinkin the same thing myself. Deathwing as a character has been around since at least 2000 in Blizzard lore.
Dunno how that exactly works legally, but it bein so prominent on the name of the game seems like it'd cause issues.
OT: Hmmm...Cyanide eh? Not getting my hopes up, Blood Bowl had a lot of issues.
