Read the link. smile.gif

I did, and see only the opinion of a legal consultant. I do not see proof or caselaw suggestive of proof. That is the ultimate litmus test: when someone tells the publisher to get bent after the cease & desist. What happens then. The companies can't seek damages because no sales are being made, lost, or diverted; these fan-made games are free and give credit where it's due.

That's the thing, fangame devs (among other fan-made stuff) have gotten cease-and-desist and been shut down. Maybe nobody has fought back to actually set a precedent, but who has the money or time to do something like that when they are doing the fan-made stuff in their free time?

Nintendo could easily argue that free or not, this game is damaging the 'Pokemon brand' and seek damages based on that.

So are you making the arguement that If I make a song, and somebody else listens to my song, and creates the exact same song with different lyrics, just because he didn't copy my MP3, he owns the song?

That's not the point you made earlier. What you said was that fangames are illegal. Near as anyone can tell and as far as the law is concerned, they're not until a ruling is made on it. US law does not assume an action is prohibited unless specified otherwise; quite the contrary, in fact.

Binary, that I'd honestly like to see with one of these cases. It would be very educational to see how 'damages' are determined.

I'm guessing there's no updates for poke centers or rest spots still?

If you make a song ...

And somebody else recreates that song with their own instruments and words (Aka a cover) then yes, they own the rights to that version of the song.

I said different lyrics. Same songs. Like some textures from here are probably taken from the original game. You're attacking a straw man.
