Topic: The rights and titles

And here it became interesting to me, it is how much possible to use in titles of a part of titles of known games and to do all in the same subjects? For example, is HMM if I create game Heroes of Power and Spells and I will go in the same format to do game, whether I will receive a negative from legal owners HMM? It is clear that "Heroes" "Power and Spells" "of" separately suspicions do not cause, but together - to all at once is clear, about what there is a speech. Or Endless battles (it  : endless space, endless legend, etc)? Or Slaves of Orion? Recently Blizzard had legal proceedings with someone apropos whether Heroes of the storm whether hearthstones, at someone word any there coincided or was a part. Them , of course, but " remained". If game paid/free how influences? It is clear that HMM8 or heroes of might and magic and cunning is at once gets under a copyright. How to understand, where boundary between permitted and inaccessible? Whether it is necessary to look the registered trade marks of games?

Look at mobile games from Gameloft. There at them very many it is torn off with known : Modern Combat == Call of Duty Modern Warfare N.O.V.A == Halo Heroes of Order and Chaos == it is necessary to explain? March of Empires == Age of Empires Gangstar City == GTA (Vice City) and still pay attention to graphic design - all it is there absolutely explicitly torn off.

Representatives of company Bethesda initiating judicial proceedings while in any way did not comment on the decision of the Swedish court. The conflict between Mojang and the American publishing house began summer of this year when Bethesda sent the Swedish developers the letter in which showed complaint concerning a title of their new game - Scrolls. Bethesda marked that at gamers can form  impression as if it concerns series The Elder Scrolls. On stretch of several months representatives of two companies tried to settle a question in the pre-judicial order, but it was not possible to them. In September documents on business Scrolls have been transferred in the Swedish court. https://lenta.ru/news/2011/10/18/scrolls/ CEM> how to understand, where boundary between permitted and inaccessible?
