IP Infringement?
« on: September 09, 2013, 08:39:32 PM »
So, I went to the iPad App Store to see if there was a deck builder app yet. I found a game called Magecraft from Fire Rainbow Studio that doesn't appear to have anything to do with Mage Wars, yet it is using Mage Wars art assets. FYI.

Artists often let art go more cheaply if they clause in a remainder right to distribution and sale.

Wow- I guess we are in the big leagues now.....getting art and cards stolen!
Where does my greatest enemy lie?
It has been around since the dawn of time,
it follows your loved ones as well as mine,
takes the form of a mountain as well as a flower,
it cannot be outrun by the greatest of power.

You don't need to be in the big leagues for that to happen :-)
