This is dual universe. Not star wars universe.  Stealing intellectual property should not be condoned by NQ.  They need to step up and ban any further events.  NQ doesn't own or have rights to star wars.  And I'm here to play dual universe not star wars. Hopefully NQ steps up and does the right thing.

Building Lucasfilm/Disney IP ships in a game is not a violation of their IP, it is actually allowed under their definition of Fanart as long as there is no personal gain (as in selling these creations in RMT). I do not know what the bad man did to you that this is such an obsession for you but please stop putting your foot in your mouth on this.

My nephew drew a picture of the Millennium Falcon with crayons, should i call the cops?

Nope you should train him to be an assassin without any emotion or social attachment. 

Then he can kill all his friends and family that saw the picture.

The thing is, there is basically in lore reason that and event like this could take place.

 

They went out of their way to preserve Human culture before departing Earth, so it stands to reason that some of the major characters (fictional or otherwise) like Icarus, Romeo and Juliet, Zeus, Princess Kaguya, Caesar, Scarlett O'Hara, Joseph Smith, Adam and Eve, Mohammed, Phileas Fogg, John Lennon, Arthur Dent, Punch and Judy, Bart Simpson, Gandalf, DEATH, Rick Astley, Mickey Mouse, Jesus Christ, Darth Vader, Raistlin Majere, Cleopatra, Pandora and so on have all survived from popular fiction, foktales and superstitions over the centuries... Some in this list are already over 2000 years old...

So it stands to reason that those visages would survive along with the associated social aspects such as roleplaying, praying, creating art and music, etc.

This means nothing outside of France and doe snot apply to anything in game just because the developer is French. That said The position OP takes is factually incorrect and more based on a personal obsession with comments from a different thread that being based on anything real.

Hey there. :)

"Copyright is intended to protect the original expression of an idea in the form of a creative work, but not the idea itself. A copyright is subject to limitations based on public interest considerations..."


Star Wars-esque constructs and/or events fall within "fair use" (not sure what it's called in Canada/France, so forgive the US terminology).

 

We appreciate the concern, however. It's always good to surface subjects like this to ensure we continue to be compliant. ?

Can you tell me about the time you made someone ingame change their ship names from Stargate Command?  And why when someone put a screen shot of an ED ship on twitter it was taken down.  Why did you guys promote ship expo's in game, but did no promotion on this STAR WARS event?   Have you guys ever posted a screen shot of a star wars made ship on your official Twitter?  Can you send me a link. And if not, why havent you?  Would be a great way to promote the game since millions of people obviously love star wars, you can show them that its possible to make star wars ships and fly them just like in the movies!! A good way to boost subscriptions to your game.

Because that wouldn't be fair use. It's not complicated -- promotion in this context would clearly be a for-profit enterprise rather than artistic expression protected by fair use. Not NQ's job to explain what can be easily Googled.

You know this is the guy you banned, but then came back immediately with his alt accounts...? like, he's not a positive force of discussion on this forum and you can't throw a rock on his comment history without finding things that violate TOUs.

If that were true, why did they make the guy change the name ingame from Stargate Command?  thats his artistic expression right?

who cares? Not relevant to the concept of fair use. NQ can ban any name they want for any reason -- usually MMOs ban names like that because they want RP to be constrained to their universe, but NQ's internal policies aren't the topic -- the topic is if this is actual IP infringement, which it clearly isn't.

 

go research the topic instead of grasping for straws.

I guess we will have to wait for NQs response. 

 

But thats a important question. 

It should be clear to everyone the legal boundaries of what they can do. 

 

And if you have any doubt you should ask as you did.
