The Silver Lining (or KQ9) Cease and Desist Letter


Recommended Posts

As title suggest the team behind the fanbased game, The Silver Lining, (formerly known as KQ) has recieved a ceasde and desist letter from Acticion. Activision now own the IP rights the the KQ games.


Here's parts of the explanation why this is so:


Recently, however, ownership of the Sierra IP changed hands and became the property of Activision. After talks and negotiations in the last few months between ourselves and Activision, they have reached the decision that they are not interested in granting a non-commercial license to The Silver Lining, and have asked that we cease production and take down all related materials on our website.


For some reason, this also means all of their forums save one:




Oh, and there's a petition, too. (you can find the link in the post to the forum above)


Sad this is :p


Apparently, the team has worked on the game for almost 8 years, and were readu to release something in spring 2010.


The C&D letter could mean that Activison are planning more KQ games. I doubt it, however...
