This is a general set of articles on the question of copyright and trademark infringement with respect to role-playing, board, and other non-computer game systems. I am not a lawyer, but I felt some need to have this since other sites covering this topic are from sources with an agenda: i.e. game companies who want to prevent unofficial competition, or companies that want to market such unofficial products.
Please note that I do not claim to be a legal expert in intellectual property law. Wherever possible in these pages I attempt to link out to actual legal authorities. If you know that any information I have here is incorrect, please send me email and I will correct or remove it.
