In Topic: Scared that Nintendo will say that one word: "NO!" (need input)

@frob- Thanks for the insight.  I thought it was because I instant messaged him one time, and he went all sorts of bananas on me.  And if that's the case, uh...sorry?  Thank you though for clearing that up.

@Tom- Did I do something to offend you?  Ever since I joined, to me (and maybe you don't intend to be this way)  but you come off mean.  Maybe it's something that I did that was wrong, but I'd like to know.  

 

To the rest-  That's fine, I don't mind making my own games.  It's not like I can't come up with ideas in a snap, anyone who knows me will tell you, I can think of an entire story within 5 seconds-2 minutes.  I actually have this other game in mind based on a story I once wrote but never completed, and yes it was original.  Characters from other genres, games, etc... were never used.  So, I don't mind.  Plus, putting up anything legally against Nintendo is pretty much a 99% automatic fail, because Nintendo is big and the name itself sells, so to go up against a corporate giant is ridiculous.

I'm sorry for beating the crap out of this thread, but, I got the e-mail back.  Most of it was nothing new, but there was something in the e-mail I don't understand, and maybe you all can clear this up for me.  Here's the e-mail:

 

 

Hello Jake,

 

Thanks for writing in.  I can tell you spent a lot of time and thought on your idea, and it's flattering to hear you wish to use our Intellectual Properties in your game.  To us, your request represents a great sign of success and recognition of the Nintendo brand.

 

We are grateful for all the requests we receive for permission to use Nintendo properties; however, we receive thousands of requests and do not have adequate staffing to review them all.  Therefore, our general policy is to decline all such requests, no exceptions.  I realize this isn’t what you wanted to hear and thank you for understanding.

 

 

Although we are unable to grant permission, use of Nintendo properties without our formal permission may still be allowed depending on the circumstances.  You are encouraged to seek your own legal counsel if you have any questions about whether your particular proposed use is permitted without Nintendo's authorization.  This is not a comment on whether we believe your particular proposed use is permissible—Nintendo cannot provide legal advice.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Curtis Neal
Nintendo of America Inc.

Now, like I've said, I've written to companies before asking permission to use their characters and what-not, and it was pretty much a solid no.  However, what confuses me is this statement:  "Although we are unable to grant permission, use of Nintendo properties without our formal permission may still be allowed depending on the circumstances." What does that mean?  Does that mean, even though I can't use explicity characters and stuff from Nintendo, that it is ok however to use concepts from the games?  What does it mean?

@Servant - What would you suggest regarding the "hiearchial structure of coding?"  In other words, from what you said Python, and then what after that?  And then, what after the language after Python?  Just curious.
