I sent (unsolicited and solely by my own choice) the following response to Rebellion Studios:
I reside in Michigan and I'm a fan of the "Sins of a Solar Empire " series by Stardock. You're sleazy effort to grab some cash, free as a result of Stardock's "Sins of Solar Empire: Rebellion" release is distasteful to say the least.
Maybe you can quickly trademark the words "Entrenchment" and "Diplomacy " as well and add those in to your suit for an ever bigger "profit".
Sad thing is, I'm a huge 2000 A.D. fan from way back and have your Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper games as well as some of your Mongoose products. I guess it's easier for you to sue for income than actually create new products for it now.
No more for me. You just joined the ranks of opportunistic Bankers, Politicians and Apple on the sue-for-greed express. I'll be sure to share my feeling prolifically with other gamers as well.
Tacky, sirs. Thanks for helping suck the livelihood out of another Michigan company.
