We live in an age of gaming where fans of a franchise can easily spin off their own games and post them for others to play. And it's AWESOME! Some of the best games I've played in the last year have been made by fans. And yet, as we've seen recently with Pokemon Uranium and Another Metroid 3 Remake...the original companies might not be so thrilled this is happening. And all of this is beginning to call up some…difficult...legal questions. So today, I'm asking the question "When is a fan game TRULY a fan game?" The answer to that question has changed A LOT recently...and it could produce some truly scary results.

For more information on these court cases check out this article:

12:11 I know a lot of people say Terraria is a Minecraft clone but in fact, Terraria was released first. So in a way, Minecraft is actually the clone. Mind-blowing right? Right?

Wait... people still think terraria is a minecraft clone? He’ll dare I say that terraria is almost BETTER than Minecraft just due to shear amounts of content. Of course now I wait to get smacked by a wooden 2x4 from a Minecraft fan.

Well, Nintendo probably took "uranium" down because it was download 1,500,000 time's in little more than a week so people would prefer playing that than a Nintendo's Pokémon game... (So basically they took down a 9 year work in 9 days out of greed) Ah btw, I feel like copyright shouldn't be a problem if you give the credit to the original game and say that it is a fangame... 😑 "Courts suck"

Actually, from a legaleze standpoint, it is quite common that the judge actually would not be _allowed_ to play the game in question. I don't know how it goes in US, but at least here in Europe only the evidence brought by either side into the court room is admissible as evidence, and if a judge tries to research the topic by themselves (for example by playing the games) without either side bringing that into the courtroom (no idea how you would even go around bringing "just play it yourself" as evidence anyway), you would taint yourself, and if either side got wind of it at any point they could use it to throw the ruling out the window in no time. Thus I can see how the judge would be left to writing down in the ruling that it is difficult to make a judgement without themselves playing the games. It's clear that they would have wanted to, but they couldn't while still making the ruling binding if neither side brought actual gameplay as evidence.
