Its 3:47am and I’m sat here mailing back and forth with a Washington law firm over the finer points of an IP Rights Transfer agreement…
Its common knowledge that some of the DoD custom map models I made have been used in maps to be released officially by Valve and as such, they as an any other company, want to secure the intellectual property rights for them.
This I have no issue with, im being compensated anyway, but I got the paperwork late (thank to the Swedish Midsommar holidays) and I needed to clarify a few legal issues. This comes as no suprise to those who have seen me hammer IP law down the throat of copyright abusers in the past…
It’s just a little annoying that because of the time difference and the fact the weekend is upon us that these issues may *possibly* delay the release of a few new maps by a week and I risk the wrath a few tens of thousand DoD players.
Fingers crossed all will go well as its not a big issue, just some clarification needed. All I have to do is put my signature next to Gabe Newell’s and FedEx it back to the US.
