When I run AVI2MVE a window pops up, that says, among other things: Legal stuff: The MVE format is the property of Interplay. You may use this utility for education and evaluation only. You are not allowed to distribute the movies produced by this program. Any comments on that third item? Is this just author ABel protecting himself by having appropriate disclaimer? Is distribution of MVE made by this util "acceptable" in the same "unofficial" sense as Interplay describes in the Fallout Bible? When I read the legal statements by Interplay, I was thinking for a moment about SCO (unix). The company basically lost all its market due to free software (linux), and now are trying to sue companies using linux (saying it contains part of their IP). It seems that persuing lawsuits is pretty much the entire business of SCO now. Makes one wonder about Interplay with its 3.5 employees or whatever.
