Hi Dom ... see this thread – especially Ahruman's comments on the potential amount of work involved. One interesting one is
Current opinion is that we only get away with Oolite because nobody is making any money from it: non-commerciality is our only defence. When they started trying to charge money for Elite: TNK was when David Braben's lawyers stepped in with the injunctions. So even if the App store didn't reject it as a copyright violation to begin with, chances are they would pull it very shortly after receiving a cease and desist letter from Frontier Developments. And then the fun would start ...Ahruman wrote:[...] the chances of Oolite being preemptively rejected from the App Store as a potential copyright violation are quite high, and I don’t care to speculate how FrontierDev would respond if it wasn’t.
