If you want to use someone elses intellectual property, you ask. Saying that people have a right to create mods because they love a game is ridiculous. Can I write a Final Fantasy book? Or film my own Disney movie?

If it is a good game, they can still approach Bungie with it...or change it enough that it no longer relates to Halo.

its just cool how people can make mods for game systems. i wish i could do some of that stuff.

It is worth noting that since Bungie discontinued this mod they have given all the developers jobs at the studio.

It seems less like a case of IP infringement and more like a case of Bungie working on/planning an RTS around Halo themselves...given their history with the excellent Myth games this wouldn't be much of a surprise.

I was hoping they would do that (if i was a game developer, I'd probably be scouring the internet looking for great mod teams). It'd be cool if you could post up a link or type up the article. I'm glad that Bungie didn't just throw away people with so much potential.
