Question About Mod Names

3 posts in this topic

Just wanted to know if anyone can get sued for using another games name. Like if someone made a mission pack called "Insurgency" for Ground Branch can that person be sued by the company just for using that game name because it already exists?

I think naming is a grey area though. Definately using someone's IP in a mod without permission is a no-no, but using a somewhat common name may be ok. Insurgency is a product name, but also a common term. So if you named a game Insurgency then you would be violating the IP. But if you made a mod named Ground Branch: Insurgency then you would probably be ok. Obviously Ground Branch: Star Wars would get you a letter from a lawyer pretty quickly though. ;)
