Copyright Issues

Hi Sean

I am wondering have you had to deal with any copyright issues about Conquest, since Risk is now intellectual property of Hasbro Interactive ?

My friend and I have also been working on a software adaptation of a famous board game and we are just not sure will the copyright laws compel us not to publish our game, although, the game itself is basically different than the original one ? much like Conquest and Risk.

We would appreciate if you could share your experience with us, since your project Conquest has many similarities to our case and we are not sure how much would it cost us to pay a license fee to the original idea owner, if you had to do so with Conquest.

wtf?

Yeah, I've heard about Risk too, but I've thinks it's free ...something like chess or pool ...God damn it!!! I think it's found by Chinisse 5000 years ago ;-P.

But with little investigation I've found that in the mid 50's of last century, the Risk is invented by some Bro's Brothers. After they've
sold it for the few decades they sell the licence to the Hasbro company. ( It's protected now, by the U.S. Patent ).

Sean, is it true that you haven't paid any licence fee to the Hasbro?

Man, what you think if one ( of many ) of they lawyers could visit you in UK?

Jeezzzz. You're broke man. You'll be jailed man!!!

Or maybe the Queen of England will save you ass? ;-)
