As a lawyer, my first advice to my clients is to stay out of a legal dispute involving other people, and to be thankful its not yours.

POLL DESCRIPTION

As mentioned in a recent news article, an attorney has contacted Majestic Twelve Games regarding an intellectual property dispute over use of the name "Starslayer."

What do you think MJ12 should do?

correct the error

Majestic Twelve was in error - they should change the name of their game immediately.

give in

I don't think Majestic Twelve was wrong, but I think the wisest course would be to comply with the attorney's demands.

ignore

Majestic Twelve should ignore the attorney's demands, and not even make a response.

bluff

Majestic Twelve should respond with a letter of their own, challenging the attorney to take further action. I think the Starslayer comic isn't worth the cost of legal action, and the attorney will leave Majestic Twelve alone.

take it another step

Majestic Twelve should respond with a letter of their own, challenging the attorney to take further action, and see what happens. They can always settle later.

fight on principle

I think the attorney's claims are invalid, and Majestic Twelve should fight back even if it means being taken to court.

negotiate

Majestic Twelve should negotiate with the attorney, hoping to find some middle ground where all parties are satisfied and no name change is necessary.

no opinion

I have no idea.
