Avoiding IP Landmines

Post by Mediocrates »

Hello, admins!

I have a quick question re: IP. I am working on an analysis post, and wanted to include a table comparing the stats of various races' ships. Is this allowed under IP protection rules? If not, how much and what kind of information can I include in a post?

Thanks!

Hi Medio,

Comparing isn't a problem. The stats for DZC are published publicly. So under fair use it's allowed, I think. Just don't ask payment and you'll be fine 😉

For DFC no photos of statlines in the books. Keep in mind TTCombat do need people to buy those to continue the game. So as long as they still need to buy those, I think you are good.

Cheers, Michel

Hey there ... I'm traveling at the moment, but monitoring threads... we should probably specify this stance in our forum rules.

Hey folks. Thanks for the clarifications! I'll be sure to minimize the stats I show. Cheers!

FYI I added a brief note on photos of rules books to our rule posts.
