(re: Sierra Online 1989-90 Video Catalogue) J.
I appreciate your concerns about the legal standpoint. True Ken does not hold the copyrights to these items anymore, however he has openly expressed this fact and has stated that if a legal issue does surface because of materials such as these, that he would remove them.
This video however I do not believe will cause any issues – the video itself was originally made from an advertising perspective. The video was available back in the early 90’s for the cost of the tape and shipping… there is nothing to be gained from this video other than planting the “bug” to go out and buy Sierra software. I don’t think anyone is going to complain about free advertising.
Anyway, we are all entitled to our opinions, but I seriously doubt this will affect Ken and his VU negotiations.
