Hi all. All my legal problems probably started when I sent my resume to Wizards of the Coast. I thought the phone interview when well but then later SourceForge takes down my program. You can read about my interview with Wizards here.
Supposedly the abbreviation MTG is copyrighted so I need to rename my project. I got e-mail from SourceForge asking me what the new name should be so I suggested "Card Wariors". I know it is a very generic name but so is MTG Forge, lol.
To clear up some things. First, the legal letter show here was sent to SourceForge. SourceForge would be in the wrong if they didn't take my program down off of their site. SourceForge forwarded this e-mail me to. The e-mail doesn't mention anything specific other than changing the name. I responded to SourceForge that I will make any necessary changes, so they will send me a copy of the original DCMA notice that lists the specific infringment.
Personally I think if I renamed all of the card names and didn't download the card pictures that Wizards would be OK with my program. I have already written a text file with all of the renamed cards, although the new card names aren't as good as the originals. Wrath of God becomes Peaceful Solution, Ancestral Recall becomes Ancient Knowledge and Briarhorn turns into Thornwood.
