    They are legally required to -- if people use your trademark (and without checking I am betting that the vast majority of all things zelda are trademarked good and proper) and you do not slap them down then you lose the trademark.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-27026704
    Wikipedia I know but have a list of things that is has happened to and could happen to in the future, or indeed may be things you use without realising it
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_generic_and_genericized_trademarks

    Nintendo have been on the other side of things as well, it is actually one of the more famous legal cases in computer games and to some it was the thing that put Nintendo on the map as more than some have a go company trying to break into the US.

    Beautiful. Reminds me of Chrono Resurrection back in the early 00s, or in other words expect a rapid cease and desist order. It's the law but man if only companies would hire these fans who re-create their games and put them in charge of a team to make said remakes a reality. Alternately, those who insist on doing this stuff independently should never release footage or talk about it until it's been completed and has been uploaded and therefore will always remain available in one way or another.

    It's not an actual game but just a few recreated segments.

    Underground, in my mother's basement.
    I think it's only if they use it to make money.

    Money changing hands (probably including donations and adverts on a site) would certainly hurt a case, though one does have to wonder if it is perhaps more because money tends to also mean wider distribution. There are quite a few cases of fan works and such brushing up against such things ( http://grrm.livejournal.com/151914.html having several nice examples from books/comics), and if you read the likes of http://www.xbox.com/en-gb/developers/rules and have read so much as an overview of trademark law then you will recognise a lot of trademark stuff in there.

    I see. I still stand by my point when people do try to pull off fan-made remakes although it is indeed illegal. The people who did this are TALENTED.

    I'm just glad to see someone else around here who actually has a mother hugging clue how this works... Good to see more intellect on these forums.

    That is the worst flaming effect I've ever seen. It was supposed to come from the inside of the body.
