  1. I have read the original forum posts on Spellhold (if I’m not mistaken), but I believe we are talking about all the area art being used by the other two. Which I believe was created by Cuv. However if you just want to stick with the Seatower, Rabain’s version is different from what I’ve seen here. Thus I would say this is an original piece of collage art. The maps being used by the other two appear to be directly taken from this version. Thus, not an original piece.

    The bankruptcy of Blackisle Studio has little to do with Beamdog’s ability set rules for the modding community, as you point out, they’ve licensed the product.

    You sort of defeat your argument by quoting “the modding community thrives when people collaborate”, because collaboration is not theft. Thus why I posted that link. I believe the modders that have worked on this through the years should be allowed to voice their opinion if they feel they’ve been wronged and you should heed your own advice and “just let it go” when they do. ;)


  2. It’s seems the main point of contention is not wether the other two had a right to make a mod about the Seatower, but if they had a right to use the art created by Cuv and Yovaneth. The answer to that is, they don’t.

    Speaking as someone that actually had to study collage law in school, they could claim the work as an original collage piece of art. Since it looks like their was some photoshopping going on.

    To take it a step further, Beamdog states on their forum “everything created with Infinity Engine resources is more or less proprietary to the owners of that engine, mods are the property of their respective authors”. They also say “Using someone else’s work in your own work without their permission is stealing” and “Developers follow these same rules; we don’t use a mod or a resource without first obtaining permission from its creator”.

    The other two are not using original game assets, they are using the original collage artwork and mod resources of others without permission. Per Beamdog, that is stealing.

    For the record, I'm really looking forward to this mod. Amazing video BTW.
