Every idea imaginable is at risk of getting a copyright strike…
Link is a Trademark on the word GEMS
Seriously… There have been TONS of games that have been copied in some fashion or another, Gems of War is basically a copy of Bejeweled when you think about it.
Anno 2205 is basically a copy of Sim City.
Are they direct copies? No. But clearly companies have made dumb disputes like No Man’s Sky vs Sky Tv over the Word “Sky”.
If the devs want to use my ideas to make their game better, honestly, if I’m giving them, clearly I’m not trying to squeeze money out of them, I’m handing an idea over.
If games have a Suggestion or Feature Request in their Forum, obviously the people who are tossing these ideas are full aware of what they are doing.
Worrying about copyrights & trademarks? The system is so outdated that most companies have broken those laws more times than most people spit. And the only time they actually seem to care is there’s a word in a name/title that they already used an can oddly claim as their property.
Sooner or later, this copyright & trademark crap is gonna get so far out of hand that people are gonna start making up words just they don’t have to go through the childish court battles.
