@  Ishapar : (09 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Shame to hear about that. How old was he?

Sorry to hear, Wulfsbane. My condolences.

@  Wulfsbane : (05 December 2019 - 10:43 PM)

My grandfather passed on the 17th.

This year's Thanksgiving was a lot tougher than normal.

Well the player base went up exponentially since the switch.

@  wildfire : (05 October 2019 - 08:39 PM)

Probably to help Bungie now that Activision's money isn't backing them.

@  Wulfsbane : (03 October 2019 - 06:33 AM)

Destiny made the move to Steam.

Technically if Archie had paid him the royalties none of this would have happened. Should they have, no, but still it takes two to fight.

I was gonna stay out of this...

 

It's Archie's fault. Penders was the victim in this.

But did they actually owe him that money?

Yes because since Penders never signed a contract (because he was a freelance writer) any characters he created were technically his.

Looking back at the case, I'd say both sides are guilty.

Pretty much. There really is no reason to blame anyone or keep continuing a witch-hunt over this. Both sides done goofed.

I agree that both nether Penders or Archie are innocent in this matter, though I do wonder why the characters aren't being used.

 

One thing I heard was that Penders' Characters can be used as long as the future of the comic matches Mobius 25 Years Later, which I hope is not the case.

 

If not that, then my only explanation is that the higher ups at Archie are sore after the lawsuit and forbid the team from ever using Penders' Stuff again, which I'm more inclined to believe. Yes that is petty, but considering how things are run over there I wouldn't be surprised.


Seriously, HOW THE HELL did nobody know that Robotnik was evil!? I mean just look at those red, glowing, hellish eyes, oh yeah I can completely trust that guy with my life! *sarcasm*

Nope.  He created the characters for their comic under their name.  He technically doesn't have the rights to those characters.  

 

However the problem would have been easily solved if they sent money his way.

Penders never signed any of his scripts or works either.  Archie has more claim to these characters than he does.

I'm having difficulty finding information on if, as a result of the lawsuit, if Archie is forbidden from re-releasing certain older issues now (Like the Knuckles miniseries). Does anyone know or can guide me to where I could find out?

Archie is still releasing the collections, but they have a few regulations to fallow: they have to acknowledge the original writers of the issues and they can't use certain characters created by said writers in any new artwork for the collections.

Define "acknowledge". Surely they were already crediting the writer for each story?

Acknowledgement, as in "displaying the names of those behind it rather than just advertising it as another Archie product".

How is that different from what they were already doing? I know the original issues always credited everyone involved. Surely they weren't removing the credits in the reprints, right?

The comics were never going to be used. Any Sonic movie made was always going to follow the game canon(for better or worst).
