Last week we reported that a Kickstarter came up for a Final Fantasy VII web series. No surprise to us, the people who brought up this Kickstarter are now being threatened with legal action from Square Enix claiming to protect their intellectual property. Keep reading for more details.
Final Fantasy VII Web Series
According to IGN, Square Enix is threatening to pursue legal action against the people who are trying to make this web series stating that they are protecting their intellectual property. The group got this email:
“This is a message from Kickstarter Support. We’re writing to inform you that a project you backed, Final Fantasy VII: The Web Series (Unofficial Fan Project), is the subject of an intellectual property dispute.
The project has been removed from public view until the dispute is resolved, which can take up to 30 days. The project’s funding and the countdown to its deadline have been stopped. If the project becomes available again, the countdown will continue and the new deadline will extend past the original deadline for as much time as the project was unavailable. You can find out more by reading our Copyright and DMCA Policy and our Trademark Policy.”
Maybe Square and the group can come to terms with some agreement but it’s not looking good. For more news on the Final Fantasy VII web series or more Square Enix news, Enix Origins is your place. To discuss this topic or any others please leave a comment or join our forums.
