    Ubisoft threatens to sue comedy forum over Jade Raymond, Assassin's Creed


    [​IMG] Ubisoft's legal counsel has sent a cease-and-descist letter to the webmaster of SomethingAwful.com via email and express mail. Here is an abstract:

    "Ubisoft has recently learned that the extremely offensive pornographic image (the “Image”) accessible at [WaffleImages.com] is being used on your website located at http://www.somethingawful.com [and/or] http://forums.somethingawful.com..."

    "...the Image’s blatant, vile, and unauthorized misappropriation of Ms. Raymond’s name and likeness, and your conduct in using the Image on your Site, have caused immeasurable harm to Ms. Raymond’s reputation and career, and constitute an egregious infringement of Ms. Raymond’s personal rights and privacy rights..."

    "Ubisoft hereby demands that you immediately: (1) permanently remove the Image from your Site, databases and servers and prevent any further uploading or display thereof; (2) permanently cease and desist all unauthorized use and hosting of images using the ASSASSIN’S CREED mark and Ms. Raymond’s name and/or likeness; (3) provide us with the name and contact information of the person who originally created and/or posted the Image; and (4) complete, execute, and return to me the enclosed Declaration by November 16, 2007 to confirm that you are complying with Ubisoft’s demand."

    Ubisoft have prepared a declaration for the webmaster of SomethingAwful.com to sign. The full cease-and-desist letter and attached declaration are available at the source.




    Pwnt. That's what you get for visually expressing your deep fantasies.

    On page 3 of the thread linked to in the article, a poster on their forum had links for it.

    But this was the funniest post I read in that thread

    Fan boys are sad. I can see lusting after a celeb and making pornographic fakes of them but a game developer? Sad, sad, sad.

    Work like this is protected by the First Amendment. Jerry Falwell tried to fight a drawing of him having sex with his mother, but it was protected.

    If this goes to court, Ubisoft is losing.

    Precedent FTW!!!
