Re: The Perils of Willy

My walkthrough of "The Perils of Willy" was taken down from a website, because someone didn't like the fact that it was there. The walkthrough I recorded was not of some experimental, development or beta version of a computer program. It was of a publicly released product which the author is encour...

Re: The Perils of Willy

Whether you agree with this or not is not really the point. As you say, once you own a game you can do whatever you like. You don't own "The Perils of Willy", Allen. You don't own the title, you don't own the character and you don't own the screen layouts if they are the same as in the original gam...

Re: The Perils of Willy

I hoped we would find some mutually acceptable middle ground, but I can see we won't. So let me summarise the situation very plainly: My walkthrough of "The Perils of Willy" was taken down from a website, because someone didn't like the fact that it was there. The walkthrough I recorded was not of s...

Re: The Perils of Willy

Certainly there is no need to start talking about human rights or freedoms, that really blows it out of proportion. This is something that has really riled me about jetsetdanny's reply. If you are riled about my reply, it's because the truth of what I wrote is hurting you :lol: It's one thing to ha...

Re: The Perils of Willy

Things have calmed down a little bit, so let me try to explain some points from my perspective, in the spirit of cooperation and understanding :) . This whole conversation could have gone in a completely different way with better communication. I agree. Let’s move it in a direction that will serve e...

Re: The Perils of Willy

We are all a little more on edge than is probably good for us in the current climate, so hopefully we can put it behind us. I hope so too... especially if Rev_Stuart_Campbell desists from further comments which would call for a response. Peace and good health to all. Peace and good health to you, H...

Re: The Perils of Willy

However, I don't believe a video of a game falls into the same category - I don't think it's protected by law the same way the original product is (or a version thereof, like an RZX walkthrough). A video is not a game, one cannot use it to play the game. Since my RZX walkthrough has been taken down...

I know the work that goes into these and time I also know the work and time that goes into homebrew games, because I have spent a good part of my spare time in the last sixteen...

Re: The Perils of Willy

As the author of the RZX walkthrough which was published on RZX Archive a day after the game's release - and then taken down upon request from the game's author - I would like to make the following points: I absolutely disagree with any requests by authors not to publish things related to their game...
