Oooh boy. So I recieved this cease and desist letter today..

Another picture


I'm not quite sure what my options are at the moment. It is pretty obvious that my Metroid project violates copyright. To be safe, I brought down the Metroid forum and the project :( I can't risk getting sued.

We're currently unsure if Shawn, the graphics artist for the Metroid project, has also recieved a similar letter.

More as it develops, I guess...

so maybe you could write a letter/email and this is what it would look like

dear nintendo
Bla bla bla.......(all that crap so you dont get sued) yes we will stop this production............... perhaps since we spent so much time on this project you could approve of this project (try to work it out and make 'em let you continue) also we had no idea that this was infringing on your copyright so we(you/i) are sorry. (and all that sorry junk)

maybe they (MAYBE) they will recongnise your talent and let you program for them.(hey its possible :wink: ) oh well if you can't spare the metroid project we are all sorry for you and ourselves(hey no awsome game for school) any ways how did they find out about this? MY advice DONT GET SUED

also maybe you could change it so its not so exacty like metroid like change the name change some of the graphics like he sumersalts instead of turing into a ball (when he is rolling he is in the shape of a currled up person)
anyways just do anything you could so you can keep it. we have been waiting for a long time also ask what you could do to keep this project from nintendo

For diortem (since I am also violating copyrights) I can easily change the name since it's different from metroid and I can ask MV to take DLQ off ticalc.org

I hope this is an april fools joke since joe could have written the letter himself

I have to admit, it's pretty good one for april fools joke. I still don't know if it's fake or not. Though very likely that it is fake. I mean despite siting actual laws, I don't think he is infringing on anything. Being that every line of code is his, and that he is not making any money of the distribution.
Besides there many other clones on ticalc and none of them have been sued(i don't think)

Yes, why would they sue about metroid when it is a smaller part of the Nintendo company, while Mario games are flying around?

I still wanna know how these companies find out about such things...like come on, its a calc!
