Hello EE fans, I hope that along with me you are DISGUSTED at microsoft.
As soon as RvB finishes they pull this right out of their ass.
So I hope that you will join me in putting together this petition signing your names and country so as to show that all over the world people want this to go through.


Thank you
-----Deathman---

Sorry, but even if you get enough names, chances are I don't think this is going to go anywhere or make microsoft do anything.

It may make them think again at how many people don't want these rules to go through.
But even if nothing happens at least we tried SOMETHING.

Thank you spartan 501.

I just don't want M$ to shut down EE and this is the only thing I can do legally .
(illegay I could send a virus but I would be sued.)
But please if you don't want EE to shutdown please sign this petition to keep machinima going.

We need at least 10,000 signatures.

In the state of your mind burning low, and the fear you hide seems to grow, the shade of your lies makes you blind, and you live your life with no desire

Now's the time for you to realize, with the burden inside you'll get lost, here's the reason for you to wake up

It's in your head it's in your eyes
It's in your dreams, it's in disguise
So you should try to free your mind
Then you'll find the stream of life

Let it flow

I have to say this is pointless, like many have said they haven't done anything wrong on their part. I think that this is posted in the wrong place too.

I think microsoft realizes how many people they've put at a disadvantage, they just don't care.

At first, I never thought I'd say this. But now, it's finally sunk in. Microsoft is not the bad guy. They just clarified the rules for us.

No, they definitely added some new ones. All those people who say that there's nothing new in that post haven't really thought through the details. For example, not being able to sell their footage is obvious, but who would have predicted the "you can use the video but not the audio" rule?

But even that is missing the point. Microsoft could have ENCOURAGED machinima, could have harnessed it as a powerful new form of advertising and led the charge in popularizing it. Instead, they chose to threaten those who make it with legal action. EVEN IF they had only clarified existing rules and hadn't added a single thing that was unexpected, it would still have been a short-sided move.

I agree with nerrolken but I'm more appauled at the fact that they wont let you add to the game universe with your machinima. Thats like calling fanfiction illegal!

ok guys, I havnt read all these posts, so I might be resaying this but, WTF are you all waiting for. Email there ass. Do what Americans do best (no offences if your not) and tell them this is wrong and give out reasons. If they really care, they will stop this, if they dont. You can piss them off about it and make them lose money.

I love your work, and was hopping what happens next. Anyone know the Email we can us?

To state something not mentioned by others I think the ending of RvB was coincidental, any fan of the series could tell the jokes were getting stale and the characters tired, it was amazing they managed to keep it going for 50 episodes, let alone 100, not to mention the sponser videos.

Still, it is a terrible shame what has happened, but unfortunately (not wanting to be one to squash your enthusiasm but ah well...) no amount of petitioning online or offline will change m$'s decision, I'm afraid.
