SE should file a lawsuit against themselves for their inconsistency

Je suis le Gare?

I'm not even sure that's right, I haven't spoke a word of french in years.

@V: So it was right! Yay!

Pronunciation is largely right, but the spelling wrong.


But probably more than what most here know anyway. Some can't get English right!

C'est vrais. SE are right to do this-it wouldn't half annoy me if people did this to my IP without clearing it first. It's a bit different when it's just fan produced stuff that noone would profit from or SE would lose sales of licensed stuff- but even then, though it's sad folks efforts are wasted the chances are always there that you'll get shut down and end up with little but wasted time and effort.

Even the French can understand that surely?(and they don't mind me calling them Shirley either)So cease and desist-maintenent!*which is prolly wrong!*

bjornbear3925d ago

Meaning: SE are getting sued, so they sue...logical to me xD /jk

Ah well what shall we do? FFXIII and hope its good =P

Bnet3433925d ago

SE will probably win, I assume these guys got a cease and desist order before a court order. In such circumstances it is usually wise to follow said cease and desist order...

Does anybody else ever read 'Square Enix' as 'Square Penis?'

Y'know, just wondering...
