I came across this. Anyone know more about it?

I read the complaint and it's a bit of legal comedy that shows that just about anybody can graduate law school.

Imagine if the most rabid looney GW antifan in existence (armed with a law degree) decided to sue GW pro-se without an attorney.

I can't believe people are actually taking it seriously.

Why, for tortious interference, of course!

Leave tortoises out of this; they don't bother anybody.

Cut out the first link after about 10 minutes when the blogger was covering the cost of the miniatures and what they were selling for. That GW may be making a large profit has nothing to do with if they had done a tort (wronged someone legally).

Dwarfs, Orks, elves etc. are in the public domain. The rules written how to use them, the sculpted figures of them and the story line used to flesh them out are copyrighted.

I suspect that this is a nuisance suit that the person who brought it hopes to be bought out rather then going to court and fighting it.

It's a joke. Is this Mithmee's FLGS owner filing this? Did he consult Mithmee for legal advice?

I look at it as if the store owner has no idea of what is happening in retail these days. Basically, what he has describe is what is happening in all of retail, more and more manufacturers are offering the best sellers in their line as direct sales only rather than having to reduce them down and sell to distributors that then sell to stores or wholesalers.

Not if you believe Terry Pratchett's "Small Gods".
