A Kaiju Combat updateAs some of you may or may not know, the Kaiju Combat Kickstarter page was recently taken down. I received a deluge of emails and calls on the subject, and thought it might be wise to publicly speak a bit more about it.A Kaiju Combat update by KaijuSamurai
In a nutshell, back in December, Wizards of the Coast (owners of Magic: The Gathering) contacted Simon Strange, director of Kaiju Combat, and claimed that our game "Kaiju Combat" was infringing on their copyright of "Kaijudo," a card game with monsters and whatnot in it. As I understand it, Simon's lawyer responded by simply pointing out that since they held no copyright over "Kaiju," a common-use word, they had no claim. WOTC fell silent and the matter appeared to have been dropped.
Fast-forward to now, where they seemed to have not only ignored the initial response, but gone over our heads to Kickstarter, issuing a renewed claim...despite the fact that the Kickstarter was already successfully funded.
