Metallica > Metallia & Copyright

Postby Alice Twilight » Fri Jul 04, 2014 3:00 am

I'm not going to complain about this change. I don't mind it one bit because I know about the copyright troubles.

What I want someone to tell me is how does copyright work between different regions? How come Metallica didn't sue N1 for using their band's name for a character in The Witch and The Hundred Knight, but here in the west it would cause problems? Is anyone knowledgeable on the subject or has a general idea on how copyright works?

Didn't put this in the TWATHK board because it doesn't have much to do with the game.

Where did they get the idea for her name, anyway? Just seems weird to name her after the band, in Japan. Did it actually have different Kanji or meaning?

I can only assume it was a wordplay on another name, such as Angelica. In that case, why not just go Metalica?

But, yeah, I mean if Cross Edge wasn't absurd enough, I see where NISA would want to be careful with names.
