(Oddly, they even went after non-Robotech fan works on those DeviantArt pages... like the director's Star Trek fan art.) I ended up with a front row seat to that one because one very stupid Robotech fan tried to shift the blame for the cease-and-desist to me personally. He tried to convince them I'd forged the legal papers they received demanding a halt to the project, and when they didn't buy that, that I'd somehow influenced Harmony Gold to kill the project because I'm just such an evil guy, y'know? He even tried to persuade them to file a lawsuit against me. Ironically, I only learned about the project because of that... when the fan film group behind the project reached out to me to let me know what that particular crazy person had been saying and assure me they didn't believe a word of it. Swell guys, as it turned out, shame they fell afoul of Harmony Gold's attempts to create a fan film section on the old robotech.com site with the same draconian submission guidelines as the fan art and fan fiction sections. Darn I didn't know it was such a mess and conflict in this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
