    Why would Kaydon fabricate something like this? I mean...this is serious stuff we are talking about (copyright infringement). The letter isn't false...I recieved the exact same letter when I used to create fan trailers using bits from the Star Wars movies...

    Alright everyone. Probably you're wondering what's going on. Right now, I can't really say. I want to say I'll do anything I can to save the films. Like it or not, we have to follow the legal team's advice.

    Finding a way out of this will not be easy. Only now, it's more or less a legal issue. Originally this was to be made for fun. Let's just stay tuned. Several options for us.

    What's the date today? April 2nd? Alright, now I believe you.

    So, the films are still going to be made, but we're likely not going to see them? Huh. Might not be the best option for everyone wanting to watch it, but at least they're going to get made anyway.

    If its a consolation to anyone, I've always wanted to do a trilogy of star wars fan films for Kotor. :p

    Although it wont happen for a while because of how busy I currently am. It stinks though that Kaydon has to stop. Lucasarts doesn't care about fanfilms, but I can see why they care that Kaydon was using THEIR stuff.

    April 1st has been and gone. If this had been a joke we would have said so before now. I was with you guys, I thought it was a joke at first given the day. Unfortunately not. :_|

    So did you Grievous - at first anyway! mwahaahahah!

    By the way - I am *NOT* making these films to distribute and sell illegally. Just to let everyone know, so we don't make this April Fool's Day gag a reality. The next time a letter is posted, I assure you it will be real!

    *looks around suspiciously*

    NO I DIDN'T!!

    OK...maybe a little at first... <.< >.>

    VERY good prank though.

    It foreshadows what can go wrong if we don't take correct precautions concerning legality issues.

    Kaydon started it...but I, with my sick and twisted Irish humour, decided to take it past April 1st and really give you guys a shock...and then kaydon had to go and spill the beans before the punchline.

    This of course means that at some point in the future I will be creating a joke myself, with nobody involved but me. it will be something to behold, something that will shock your very souls, something that will change the way you react to stories forever...the be all and end all of practical jokes.

    It could be a week, a month, even a year from now...you won't see it coming...it could even be tomorrow...well actually no, it couldn't because I haven't actually thought of anything yet [face_laugh]

    I can't be the only one who finds that joke absolutely 100% not funny, right?

    Predicable, but still very well thought out and the letter looked offical enough.

    The letter was official...for a different film. It's an actual cease and desist order from LFL, kaydon just changed the names.
