A link to a reputable source would be nice.

Though they are pretty damn near identical.

And the Wazowski brothers lifted pretty much all of their art from decades of cyber-punk and generic Sci-Fi.

Art is theft. Always has been, always will be.

The relatively few original works in the world were made by people who should by all rights be in lunatic asylums for one reason or another.

Just did a Google search, couldn't find any relevant information on the subject. Unless the person who told you has proof, then I wouldn't believe them. Wink

If he was serious about leaving he would have bio massed his characters and been gone already.

People who stick around to whine and moan are doing it for attention, nothing more.

And the people who got the idea for headjacks from the Matrix stole the idea from authors like Martin Caidin )God machine (1963) and Cyborg (1975)(the second book was a series of books about a Nasa test pilot that ends with(Get this!) the pilot literaly being wired into the controls and weapon systems of an advanced spaceship

Sooo maybee Matin Caidin should sue WB for riping off God Machine (A book about a super computer who takes over the world) first, then CCP second.

He's using what he paid for... well okay after total CCP failure on fixes and content.. what he was given since CCP refuses to make refunds to dissatisfied customers. You always throw money in the trash?

no, but as an adult i DO make choices to move on. Even if my life was empty enough that I had the time/energy to treat changes to a video-game like it was a civil rights movement, it doesn't mean i would HAVE to lurk around and complain endlessly.


As Ranger1 said, the people still crying and weeping and gnashing their teeth are here because they want attention.

Only in US you can "patent" and/or "own" hot water as an intellectual property, get away with it and sue anyone who's using hot water. Or, "Teasing a cat with a laser pointer" for example.

Thank God CCP's HQ is in Europe where you actually must invent something new, creative and useful to be able to claim it as your own invention/intellectual property.

Even the Matrix was not an original idea.

heck id wager its storyline while semi cool was just a framework to give a reason for Kickass GunFu and KungFu scenes.

This is the stupidest post imaginable.

Everything about the Matrix series was a rehash of William Gibson and other cyberpunk authors, far before WB or CCP.
