I am guessing you are getting a little angry. Maybe you are stressed, but, at least in the forum, try to be calm, have your cup of tea and remember that a little of sense of humor can save the world and enlighten our lives.
- I tell you that you cannot continue repeating people the same IP issues, when, to say the truth, and we can witness it, the earnings with the apps are RIDICOLOUS, unless you are "angry bird". I have not yet seen a layer calling you for 10€ earnt by copying some picture or music.
- the statements on the quality of the apps based on the original media can be discussed, because it is not enough to have a good media to do a good game. A lot of games with excellent graphics or music, are unplayable, boring or stupid. I approved your position during the "Gekko war" (who is Italian as me, so it was not easy for me to go against him), but one thing is to take a breakout game and call it ArknOld, another thing is to take a free screensaver and use as background. I do not think that this has negative approach on the app quality. I think that quality can be even better if I find some media better that mine.
- Since we are in an international contest, to set up an international cause, let's say a USA or European media owner try to send to court a Chinese or Indian, or vice-versa (and even UK vs USA or UK vs Italy), I see very expensive and risky, especially for little amount of money, and if the media owner is not a giant.
- Of course if I copy Nintendo Super-Mario, everything of evil may happen to me , but only because Super-Mario is a very precious resource for Nintendo, it is like I steal the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London only to sell at 1$ each one at the market. I will be pursued by all MI5 and Scotland Yard not because I want to earn much, but because I robbed a extremely valuable resource, the flagship of the United Kingdom. So Mario, Kirby and others are the "family jewels".
I hope to have been clear and polite.
