    Re: Copyright?

    Wow, guys. Your are amazing, thanks for the help. But could you make a term and condittion like "if you sell the game you automatically agree to pay £2000" or something.

    Could this be used in defence?

    Not really, if someone was to infringe your copyright you would need to start legal proceedings and claim the amount that the infringement has cost your or your company.

    You can add extras such as legal costs and compensation but I don't think you'd be legally allowed to set a figure in the license like that...

    Re: Copyright?

    I want to register a copyright. I've read up on Copyright.gov and I understand the process now.

    I have one issue:
    http://www.copyright.gov/eco/help-file-types.html

    Oddly, the popular .mfa format of source code could not be found on this list.

    So what do I do to copyright my program made in MMF2? Should I take screencaptures of the Event Editor and submit jpgs? heh

    Re: Copyright?

    After making the game or program, make sure you keep the original files and source so you can prove that you had it first. Then if someone does copy it, you have proof that your file was created first.

    Also, you can save the file on a disc and mail it to yourself before public release.

    you'd be surprised

    also it's kinda late seeing "this game is freeware" if you already bought it

    It said on the site that you either convert it or provide a hard copy so presumably a print out of the complete Event List with your jpegs might be ok. Wouldn't really know myself though so your best bet is probably to get in touch with them and ask.

    No, no. I'm rather sure that's not the case. Also, if you look again at http://www.copyright.gov/eco/help-file-types.html - .exe is not on the list.
    Also, various sources online say that you submit the source code.

    Re: Copyright?

    I'm in the process of copyrighting a program from MMF. I paid the fee in November 07 and still waiting. Print out the forms.

    They will need the code from the event editor, but I believe no more than 20 pages. If you want to copyright the graphics there is a check on the form, with instructions.

    You will be in for a long wait for things to happen after you submit the forms

    Well, the main goal is to let people know that they got scammed if they did in fact pay for it, then they can decide their course of action.
