    That doesn't sound right to me, if they used your picture and your site, without even telling you. And Chansplace one was a personal homepage.

    I honestly don't think much work went into that article, probably just a search at google then grab the top few that popped up. No disrespect to anyone or anysite that got onto the article but I think a bit more care could have been taken and not so much cut and paste. Especially our pic, that's one of our mmbers under that suit.
    Having said that though it's nice to get some coverage like that :)

    as your legal beagle i have to say you don't have a case, well not much of one anyway..you could possibly go under defamation, in that you have been made to look foolish to your peers , an attack on your reputation if you will..(these being other committed star wars fans) but i think they'd laugh you out of court :/

    I just read it, agreeing with SWNZ it seems a bit of a mish mash job. Still, there are alot of good sites listed there. I find it funny they didnt even ask before they listed us. Oh well, no biggie, theres only one thing to do in this situation = *shrug*.

    Thanks for the comment Jace, maybe I can put that next to my profile? maybe not, people will think i'm in ep II.

    Well if we're going to be laughed out of court then I vote we send in Obi-Jace to present our case, I have a reputation to keep :D
