There is literally NO WAY GeeDub can hope to compete with Electronic Arts. Ebay your models now guys, GW is about to go under trying to protect itself...

GW could win this case actually, they have enough evidence to prove that they have had the copyright way before their company was even a gleam in daddy's eye.

You reckon? EA can definitely afford much better defence though.

Perhaps it will end well, and GW will get a shitload of cash from it, that sees the Dev team take on more staff! (I can dream...)

the judge will probably give an injunction. then EA just has to change the look enough to make it look different. it would be a waste to actually fight it for both parties.

if EA fights it and depending on jurisdiction, GW could get up 90% of it legal fees back. wasting the courts time when you know you are wrong is usually punished.

they could claim independent creation... but given that it is two identical models... not just one and these are not that common looking models in the first place.... it might not work.

Merged the two threads on the same topic.

This is a pathetic attempt by EA. They haven't even attempted to make them look different.

Regards,

Need to check this thread at home. At work only the lower pic is visable.
