    Dawn of the dead people Moans about Dead Rising

    News: Dead Rising versus Romero goes a bit legal - ComputerAndVideoGames.com

    New line publisher of dawn of the dead is not to impressed with capcom's Dead Rising.

    I think this is utter bull****, why is this coming now after how long since the game was released. I think they want to cash in or stop a sequel being made.

    Why not then let George Romero sue every game ever for creating zombie games and folk there has been allot.

    There is even a disclaimer on the cover, claiming any similarity with the film Dawn of the Dead is entirely coincedental .

    Whats next voodoo priests suing George Romero for zombie infringement or Leonard da Vinci gets sued by sexist woman group for painting a woman form .

    A game is made as an honour and homage to your line of movies. What do you do? Sue them and cash it!

    I would support George Ramero more than Capcom... Simply because I prefer his movies over the game (Which is ****ing awesome!)

    That's.... just wrong, Freaky.... :(

    You can't trademark the zombie concept, no matter who you are.

    Meh, I understand trademarking mouse idols.. Like Mickey! :D... But zombies.. Come on.. It's not like they're that important.. And just because they have a game that just happens to take place in a mall.. With zombies invading.. With people trapped in said mall.. It doesn't mean they were stealing some dudes idea.. >.>.. Not at all...

    Even if they did steal the idea (I don't know I have not played the games or seen the movies) there's only so many good ideas to go around :blink:

    For reference I have NOT read the article, I just based what I said off Reapers post. Also George A. Ramero should be paying me for how big of a fan I am of his. I think I deserve something for watching the Living Dead series 100 times over.

    You can't copyright an old folk legend and it being in a mall, its the best place for zombie pwning fun all the supplies you need.

    Re: Dawn of the dead people Moans about Dead Rising

    I would hazard a guess that one of the main reasons why this is all hitting the fan now is because of Romeros new film being released, for one its an attempt to draw publicity to that, Dead Rising may even profit off the release by putting people in the mood for more zombie based material and all that jazz.

    Its all kind of funny though since the original Night of the Living Dead was never copyrighted properly and that caused a whole slew of chaos for Romero back in the day if I remember right.

    Seems movie wise that Frankenstein and later Re-animator were a bit ahead of these
    My favorite was "Children shouldn't play with dead things"

    Has anyone ever played Zombies Ate My Neighbors back on SNES? There was a level where you were in a mall (escalators and all) fighting off zombies which was made in 1993. I don't recall anyone suing over that game.

    If they win their case then there wouldnt be a sequel without them coming to a deal.

    Mm..I hope Romero won't try to sue me, if I ever run into a hoard of zombies and decide to hide in a mall for safety. :(

    People these days... you slap a lawsuit on something and call it good. M.C. Escher once said something about how "Originality is only an illusion," but you don't need to sue people over just similarities in ideas!

    I dont think its Romero who is sueing Capcom, I think its one of the producers who hold rights to the movie;

    "A movie producer with the rights to George Romero's Dawn of the Dead movie sued Dead Rising developer Capcom on Monday after talks between the two parties failed."
