Could this have an effect on the 405th? Would it affect the forum? What could this do to us?!
We're gonna be illegally selling the stuff at busstops. Making transfers in suitcases and in alleyways. What will this reduce us to? We need our Halo! We need our Pepakura! Ahh! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

The gaming community has been bitchslapped before, like with the guy who made a Marcus doll using some brand thing, and got sued, big fuss, by makers of GOW. Does this apply if you have downloaded the files from a website, and therefore havent in fact reverse engineered the game, providing you make no financial profit from said files?
Um. I used to be a modder. IM GOIN TO JAIL!!!111!!!
Does Microsoft think anyone cares? We're not going to stop machinima, armor making, or modding. Do they think they can sue us all? This is pathetic. They know damn well they can't do anything about it.
You can’t sell or otherwise earn anything from your Items. We will let you have advertising on the page with the Item on it, but that’s it. That means you can’t sell it, post it on a site that requires subscription or other fees, solicit donations of any kind (even by PayPal), use it to enter a contest or sweepstakes, or post it on a page you use to sell other items (even if those other items have nothing to do with Game Content or Microsoft).
Fan-fics are illegal?!? Thats dumb, cos although everyone always praises Halo's attention to detail, it is actually a shallow world compared to, for instance, star wars. I mean, can anyone tell me, for instance, whether there is regular trans-colony civilian shipping? Indeed, any civilian spaceflight at all? Do marines ever take Elite jaws as trophies? What is the maximum length of time a human can safetly stay in hibernation? What material are the Halos built out of? etc, etc. Although, does the lisence disallow posting non-profit fanfic on hbo.bungie.org?
