The article deals in US copyright law and common sense, pulling examples from Narrative's Legends of LeChuck, and Scurvyliver's Fate of Monkey Island, one of the first fangames to be shut down, as well as others. I, um, haven't read the whole thing yet, but probably should.
PC Gamer's newest issue features the Top 50 Games of All-Time list. Sam & Max Hit the Road comes in at #47, and the blurb answers a question that many adventure gamers have been asking:
"What's next? While the flow of adventures from LucasArts has dwindled to a trickle, a source close to the project tells us that developer Infinite Machine is quietly working on a new console game using the Sam & Max license but without LucasArts publishing."
In case you're unfamiliar, Infinite Machine is a new game company that was established by Dark Forces and Jedi Knight creator, Justin Chin. Well, if there is any truth to these reports, at least a few ex-LucasArts employees will be able to work on it. Many thanks to Adventuregamers.com for this report!
I have added some more grog bottles because they seemed particlularly popular, and we will add some more rare items very soon! So if you didn't win the Grog bottles and still want to get your hands on some, head on over to Ebay!

Lucasfilm Ltd. has signed an agreement to build a 23-acre office and film production center at the Presidio, a former Army base. The company's plans call for a 900,000-square-foot campus for 2,500 workers. Officials with the Presidio Trust had been courting the film company for more than two years. Lucasfilm special effects and post-production company, Industrial Light & Magic, along with THX Group, LucasArts Entertainment Co., Lucas Online and the George Lucas Educational Fund, will all move to the Presidio location. The Lucasfilm companies will occupy the site of the Letterman Army Hospital after the 10-story building's demolition. The Presidio Trust must meet Congress' goal of becoming financially self-sufficient by 2013.
You can view artist renderings of the impressive facility at Lucasfilm.com. Congrats go to all of the Lucas companies; it looks like it will be one amazing place to work. Thanks to The SCUMM Bar for the news!
Why is it on the list? Can you think of a funnier, more distinguished adventure series? How'd they come up with that stuff? Writer/programmer Tim Schafer reveals: "When [co-writer/programmer] Dave Grossman and I started writing dialogue for the first game, we were just writing dumb jokes to crack each other up and pass time. I thought Ron [Gilbert] would rewrite it and make it sound more like 'game dialogue.' But he didn't. He left it. And in the end, it was great." Best Monkey Island ever? "What's always struck me as funny is the response to the newest Monkey game," notes Monkey 4 project lead Sean Clark. "The newest one is always 'not as good as the rest.' That is, until the next one comes out - then the previous one is 'the best ever.' What's next? Schafer launched Double Fine Productions, and is developing an action/adventure game for the Xbox. And Sean Clark? "Monkey 5! Okay, not really."
Thanks to oneo for the news!

As reported first on ScummBar, it seems that Clint Bajackians company CBStudios which earlier this month posted a MP3 of Clint's work from EMI, was made to take down the MP3 by LucasArts.
Are LEC being to pedantic now about their intelluctual rights and property?
Is this one step to far? Have your say and post your comments for this news item. We know quite a few LEC employees read Mojo, so have your say.
Pelican Accessories, makers of such fine products (Cough) as The Game Station Arcade, are releasing an X-Box controller named "X-wing". While info isn't yet posted on their web site, it's currently being advertised in many gaming magazines, such as this month's Electronic Gaming Monthly (inside back cover, I think).
Pelican accessories and LEC could not be reached for comment, as their main offices are closed at 10:00 PM PST. Amaze.
Expect a lawsuit over intellectual property soon, since LEC has just about every word in the original Star Wars script copyrighted.
Update: I uploaded a scan of the ad in question. Take a Look.
That's going to take some use refering to as an abbreviation- along with ANH, ESB, ROTJ & TPM.
We all know what people on Mojo & Ewan (bless him) is saying, but what about the rest of the Online community?
Checkout what everyone else is saying with a collection of opinions from various sources on TheForce.Net.
In other gaming news site news, Blue's News is Grim Fandango themed this week. Might want to peek at that (hope they dont get shut down by LEC LOLegal!).
