Quote from Shindig_Ascension (on Religion in Magic) » Wrath of God couldn't be more religious if the picture was Jesus smacking demons with a jug of Holy Water.
In a case where the copyright owner sustains the burden of proving, and the court finds, that infringement was committed willfully, the court in its discretion may increase the award of statutory damages to a sum of not more than $150,000. In a case where the infringer sustains the burden of proving, and the court finds, that such infringer was not aware and had no reason to believe that his or her acts constituted an infringement of copyright, the court in its discretion may reduce the award of statutory damages to a sum of not less than $200. The court shall remit statutory damages in any case where an infringer believed and had reasonable grounds for believing that his or her use of the copyrighted work was a fair use under section 107, if the infringer was: (i) an employee or agent of a nonprofit educational institution, library, or archives acting within the scope of his or her employment who, or such institution, library, or archives itself, which infringed by reproducing the work in copies or phonorecords; or (ii) a public broadcasting entity which or a person who, as a regular part of the nonprofit activities of a public broadcasting entity (as defined in subsection (g) of section 118) infringed by performing a published nondramatic literary work or by reproducing a transmission program embodying a performance of such a work.
Quote from Masamune
Please, accept that Magic costs money to play, and drop it. A playset of Baneslayers>playset of duals. New Jace>Force of Will. Etc... Not to mention, Legacy is so wide open, that it's easy to build a deck that can perform reasonably well without very many "money staples" at all.
Quote from Solace »'unjust enrichment'... First off, you're only selling stuff you buy from them, so any money you gain would in turn gain them money.
On a more serious note... does that mean they think you're selling a product that doesn't exist yet? o.O
Quote from Shade »How can they cite you for "breach of contract?" Did you ever sign a NDA with them?

Quote from rancored_elf »In fact, they've asked the Judge to order me to never discuss any magic card, not yet in print or in print, ever again.
Quote from rancored_elf »I've never signed a non-disclosure agreement with Wizards. They're accusing myself and the John Doe Defendants of breach of contract. Since they are claiming they don't know who the John Doe Defendants are, they have to accuse me and them of all of the same actions.
Quote from Feurerdrache »actually, i'm beginning to doubt that 'copyright infringement' is the proper term for the case... he isn't selling something that's been produced, and he isn't under a nondisclosure contract. this has been repeated many times, but R_E isn't doing anything illegal. it's his contacts that have been acting illegally (breaching contracts and whatnot).
Quote from Bizkit_Overlord »Hm. I can see the "not yet in print" part, but isn't the second part a complete and utter violation of freedom of speech?
Quote from Shade »IMO, you have nothing to worry about.
Quote from Shade »WotC is asking for so much because they want to have room to negotiate a settlement later. They know they have no chance in hell. As long as Daron is willing to wait out WotC on this thing and not crack, he's got 'em. Daron did nothing wrong, and as long as he remembers that, he has them beat.
Quote from Caranthir »Please, any people of Wizards who are reading this: Be reasonable. What you want to accomplish by crushing a family man? You want to destroy a man's life because of little pieces of paper? You know that the amount of money is absurd with regard to his position.
The game...your game...is people. With no people, nobody will play it.
If you will continue with this ridiculous issue, you will kill Magic, for good.
Quote from Mr._Mxyzlptlk »Wizards doesn't care about one man and his family.
Quote from Annorax »@RE: Offer them $10, all information you have on people leaking stuff (which amounts to about nothing), and agree not to discuss cards that have not yet seen print, and do so publicly by posting the offer here, before they act on it. If they ridicule you for it, then you know they're unfairly out for blood. And if they take it, I'll even pay the ten bucks for you.

Quote from T2 »But it is not our job, in taking a negative position, to prove anything. The onus is with you, and your attempts to reject it are purely fallacious.
