    I know, they're a bunch of silly people! EA could've kept it in, I think theres laws that say its ok to parody something. I'm amazed Rockstar wasted time on this when they're actually games out there that completey rip off GTA.

    Maybe they are complaining because the Simpsons game "insinuates" that GTA is violent? [​IMG]

    How dare they say GTA is violent? That's slander, that is!

    WTF? They need to read up on the law.

    A) The only thing Rockstar has copyrighted are the characters in their games and the name. They do not own a copyright on the gameplay. Being called Grand Theft Scratchy does not inflict on the copyright.

    B) They are allowed by law to parody. Weird Al doesn't have to ask permission from the artist to parody their songs, but he does anyway out of respect. MAD Magazine parodies everything but doesn't ask. They don't have to!

    I heard about this ages ago, I was shocked then, and I'm shocked now. Honestly, for a developer known for having a sense of humor in their games, how come they can't have a sense of humor about their games? [​IMG]

    I can't really say they're "whining" if they get sued by Jack Thompson every year for ridiculous claims.

    That's a really pathetic attitude from Rockstar. It's not like the game was going to steal sales from GTA4 or anything.
