I wonder if I’m even infringing on copyright by copying and pasting this material from http://www.bobbates.com/bob_disclaimer/
anyway, I was taking a break from IF Comp by playing Timequest and I went to ifdb to edit the page so to make that link available but it says “Author’s website” and then I get there to see whether or not it is available from there and, off course, no it is not and then I stumble upon one of the most impressive demos of paranoid IP legalese ever - why even make your webpage available when it’ll be copied all over by whomever accesses it?
so, no, I didn’t edit the ifdb entry and I wonder if the author will sue everyone and their mother when he finds out his old abandonware is on archive (Nintendo sure did)…
