My court date has been rescheduled 2 time prior to being subpoenaed. It was just rescheduled again tbd. This is stemming from a hunting guide taking me onto land I did not have a permit to hunt on 2 years ago in Inez, KY. I live in Crestwood, KY.
I am a representative for a gaming company's game. I have legal permission to use their IP and game contents and materials for my own use. However, many other entities have created illegal content using the company's IP and game materials without legal permission to gain their own profit. Not only... Read more »
Probably not, unless your license agreement expressly allows you the right to enforce, or you are the exclusive licensee. Oftentimes the intellectual property owner retains the right to enforce or license the IP to others (non-exclusive license), though sometimes there is contractual language that...Read more »
Would creating a digital card game with some mechanics that are similar to Yu-Gi-Oh violate some patents? Specifically, one shared mechanic is that the "field" or playing area is divided into 10 zones in 2 rows for each player, with "creature cards" placed in the front row, and other cards placed...

Well, I think that you are correct in worrying about Konami's intellectual property. As far as patents go, Konami has over 1100 patents on various gaming devices and methods. I imagine that some of them cover Yu-Gi-Oh!
I don't know which patents cover Yu-Gi-Oh!, but the patent numbers...Read more »
We have a video game in the making based off of a TV show. I know there are copyright issues since we’re using the same characters, but what can we do to prevent that? We’d like to start a kickstarter campaign after we’re done with 35% of the game and start monitoring. How would we work... Read more »
I could get it lifted and have a scheduled court date to go pay fees my job is with the casino and before I start I have to go to the gaming board and get my finger prints done so I will be in front of the state police
Having the warrants recalled (lifted) really depends on the court. However, it is very unlikely a court will recall the warrants without you having an attorney. If you go to the court to ask you will be taken into custody. Hire an attorney who is familiar with the court system where your...Read more »
Hit poker jackpot for $1300. I am underage and used fake id with all my real information to claim jackpot money. Used my real ssn on w2g form. Will I get caught that I’m underage? Can they tell I’m underage with my ssn? What should I do next.
First, you cannot "press charges," only the local prosecutor can "press charges." You do have a civil case of "conversion" against the dogs. However, that is not going to help you very much. There is no question that you are upset; however, you have few legal options. The legal costs to pursue...Read more »
I play an online casino games in which I purchase playing coins on a regular basis. I have two separate accounts and happen to win the daily race on BOTH ACCOUNTS on the same day. The casino only paid me for one win even though I provided,ample proof of BOTH my winnings. The win I was not paid for... Read more »
It sounds like you may have a legitimate claim for breach of contract, and potentially fraud, as well as a number of other claims related to unfair business practices. It'd be worth sending a legal demand letter over to let them know you're serious. An actual lawsuit may be too costly to pursue,...Read more »
I want to make some arcade like machines and then put those in public places where kids can drop some coins in and play. but here's the problem, the games that I would like to run on those machines are not actual arcade games, those are games released for the gaming consoles from... Read more »
The owners of the legal rights of those games would probably not take kindly to you infringing on those rights and profiting from it. Their rights are enforceable internationally. Your best bet is to reach out to the owners and ask for permission to do this.
I don't know the answer, but I would guess that it depends on 1) the skill game machine; 2) whether the sate where the Bar is allows the sale of marijuana; and 3) whether the Bar allows such a prize to be given to a minor. That's the best I can do.
The PlayStation messenger system does not have a means to delete already sent messages. PlayStation support refused to delete my messages containing personal data during a chat request. Their EULA/privacy documentation seems vague and doesn't quite explain this as far as I could understand it, and... Read more »
Your personal data, in all likelihood, belongs to Sony. As a result, you are asking if there is a way to force Sony to delete its own property, which you consented to it giving to it. I doubt that is possible.
Copyright is an asset just like physical possessions. If the company is in fact out of business, their assets went somewhere (and now belong to someone, such as the original owner's heirs, or another entity or individual) following the company's dissolution. Therefore you still must have the...Read more »
My 12 yr old brother stole around $500 dollars using my friends Xbox account, which was linked to his mother's bank account. Could he get in trouble with the authorities for thievery? This is not the first time this has happened, he recently stole $90 from my mother's credit card on video game... Read more »
It appears to be a contract, but there may be portions of the full statement which you didn't quote (I followed the link but I don't see the language you quoted) which excludes liability. If the game is in beta and you are only buying the current build, it would indeed seem to be a poor bargain on...Read more »
People pay to enter a gaming event, things often referred to as "E-Sports". These events offer cash prize pools based on percentages for placement. If children are present, and/or enter the gaming event, are there laws and restrictions the Gaming Event Organizers should be aware of to avoid legal... Read more »
You will need to make sure the structure of your game does not trigger an illegal lottery concern. Illegal lotteries consist of 3 elements: (1) provision of a prize; (2) chance; and (3) consideration (i.e., money is paid to play). Event organizers should consult experienced promotions and...Read more »
