Thanks Elestan for the summary and your other posts, I feel somewhat better informed having read them.

Stardock's position is sounding more ludicrous than before. Mainly that manual bit, the gofundme, the lack of any claim to a licence agreement... If they continue in that direction is there a point where the judge may throw out their sillier claims?

I had to go with the Spathi Eluder just because of how effective it is for me against AI-controlled Ur-Quan and Kohr-Ah. I remember once taking out 80+ trying to escape from Ur-Quan space in one early game. I had just visited the Zot-Fot-Pik and was headed back to Sol but was too slow to escape the Ur-Quan in hyperspace, I fought them all with just Fwiffo, and an occasional crew resupply.

The Orz is also a favorite but I'm not very good at it.

Frankly, I hope the courts will invalidate the trademark. With only a trademark, and without a license to use P&F's IP, they will basically be unable to produce a game that is as close to SC2 as the name 'Star Control' implies. That seems keeping with the spirit of trademark law as I read it. These latest moves to trademark names and risk copyright infringement smell like legal trickery to somehow legitimize their unsure footing. Poof, trademark out of the way? Both sides can go back to make their respective games. Let them fight it out there if they must, rather than in court. Now wouldn't that be nice?
