2) As you already said, suing is time and money consuming. So it's virtually impossible that anyone from ENIGMA dev team would be active enough to do so. Only maybe Robert during one of his sissy fits could summon the time (but not money)If I sue anybody; it'll be Josh, just for shits and giggles.
Once again forgive my ignorance on this matter but this reminds me of a question might seem crazy, but I'll ask anyway.
What if ENIGMA goes to shit and it is dropped completely, scrapped, removed from the face of the earth, no longer available for download, is there such a thing as de-licensing or prohibiting users from using ENIGMA? If ENIGMA is gone / scrapped, will people still be allowed to use it to make and sell games ?
Let's say ENIGMA is gone, website, any link to it,
what are people going to link back to ?
If I sue anybody; it'll be Josh, just for shits and
You are only human Robert, unless proven otherwise
Let's say hypothetically that someone makes $10 million from an ENIGMA game, game is a best seller goes viral and the developer is wiping his ass with all the money he is making ! This could lead anybody to sue...... License or no license, regardless!
Now I don't know what country you are from, but in America people sue for anything. If I were an American I could sue you for a spelling error you made in an ENIGMA update and I could win !
People should NEVER take "Oh I will never sue" as written in stone or ASSUME they won't get sued.
Also licenses can be rendered useless unless they are LEGAL binding. One of the devs could plead insanity when they made the license or that they were drunk
Given the costs of such endeavors, let's assume the safest, that the license issue will always be up in the air........
and by that it's best to be cautious and assume you CAN get sued, regardless of what you use or do.
Sometimes it doesn't take much for something to go viral...... Even a stick figure game or game with blocky sprite or shit game and be potential success.
So everybody who uses ENIGMA and takes the plunge, assume that you can get sued anytime,
very unlikely if you don't make much money, but still a chance, and very likely if you do make it to fame and fortune.
So for example, if my game makes $10 millions, which I'm aiming for (1st month at least
) Robert will sue me, but he'll probably go home with $1000 (that is if he's lucky.....) and his lawyers with the millions of $.
Who really wins in legal battles, most of the time it's the lawyers! That's why class action suits are so fucking useless !
But no worries, i'll just plead insanity and claim
the devil made me do it!
