Coming from a future lawyer, this looks like an open and shut copyright infringement case for Disney.

However, they will be able to seek legal counsel from me if they are sued.  I love the lost causes.

I've heard about this site too, although haven't really paid attention.  Have to wonder why they are getting everyone's hopes up though.   :'(

It looks very interesting indeed, however I will sit here quietly and wait to see what occurs. *listens for the shuffling of papers by the Disney Lawyers* @_@.........Fee

I also heard of it and expect this to burn up on the launch pad as well via Disney - but rightfully so, I think looking up if they copyrighted something is a very tiny part of copyright & trademark law and this has infringment as a first name so I would not get hopes to high. Trying to contact disney means nothing - its not worth there money to respond to kids asking if they can copy their shut down site.

 Upon surfing the web and messaging a few friends, me and a good friend of mine stumbled upon these 2 websites featuring a return of VMK

http://fallingstarproductions.net/

is the company talking about bringing this amazing game back to life.. here is the link for the website itself

http://vmkunleashed.com/
So What do you think ?

supposidly Falling Star Productions have been talking with disney about getting the rights to bring the game back somehow. if disney declines this request Falling Star Productions will do their best to make it like VMK really was without using disneys graphics. if this is true the website should be operational sometime in the spring.

LETS ALL HOPE THIS IS TRUE AND CONTINUE TO KEEP THE MAGIC ALIVE.

Please respond with your thoughts and comments   
 
 
Then fantasymooma posted:
  I don't see anywhere in the 2 sites you posted that VMK is coming back. I did a search in the Forums but nothing.


I found this but I'm not really sure what exactly they are talking about.

And here is another link. I think you have to take a test (??) to get into VMKU Beta. ????

Thanks for posting Star!  If anyone hears of more information as time goes on, I certainly would want to hear about it too.   :thumbs:   People do mention it in the games I play.  But, nothing more than just making people aware of it.

Funfly had posted something about this too a little while ago.  I don't think anyone is really sure what is up with all of this either.   :hmmmm:

Some of it was discussed here in this thread as well:

I've been hearing a lot of chatter about that site. I'm keeping an eye on it and will join once it opens. Here is another chance for us to let Disney know we have not forgotten about VMK and we want it back. Maybe Disney's lawyers need to suggest that Disney just reopen that game and invest their money into a game which can make them money instead of spending it on lawyer's fees.

Hey!  They have D23 coming out.  That should at least satisfy people.  Shouldn't it?  Maybe?   :rofl1:

Apparently "WDI" has an eye on them and are waiting for them to release the game before they slap them with a lawsuit. What I fail to understand is how they found out WDI was "spying" on them. To me, it just looks like an excuse for an extended deadline (which is rapidly approaching, May 21st). They can't even meet small deadlines, like forum updates and new "features". Their site is literally built off excuses.

The weird thing about VMKU is that they're asking people for all 8 angle shoots of their characters for a "video". Yes, a "video". I thought their videos were created to prove VMKU legit..? Well, it's not like the videos were anything more than a bunch of images compiled. It's pretty obvious that they're trying to rebuild VMK from scratch or more likely, off GPVMK (which would mean they're violating even more copyright).. Their new "loading bar" was clearly ripped off GPVMK.

They probably didnít realize that they're going to need a whole lot of character walking images. I guess itís time for another ďvideo" and maybe a forum contest? The prize of course would be a poorly overlaid VMK badge.

What makes even less sense is their understanding of copyright. They think it's okay to rip off a logo, artwork, a community, 3 years of work and a game but not okay to rip off the names of the lands, rooms..etc and them. Do they really think changing the name will avoid a possible legal hassle with Disney?

Apparently, it's okay as long as the game is dead. Well they got half the truth but they're forgetting the fact that the game has to be dead for 70 years.

I know it's a lot to expect from a bunch of bored teenagers but let's face it; this entire "game" is a load of BS. The owner can't even write a paragraph without mentioning his "girlfriend".  Sorry kids, you're going to need more than that!

I hadn't seen the update to the website, but I had heard it fizzled out.

I'm kind of relieved!  I goes without saying those kids would have been in a mess of trouble if they proceeded with their plans.

Nice find Key!  Wonders what will be next right?    :laugh2:    Haven't heard of this one yet.  But, it probably will not amount to anything, just like everything else.
