In the time when Sonic Advance 2 was developed, one of the biggest online Sonic Communities "Sonic 2 Beta EZboard" was at it's best state. It was all over the search engines, and a lot of general Sonic fans were browsing the forums since it weren't private in any way. I don't want to mention any names, but there was this member who was "very-very" popular. That memeber used Sonic Advance 1 sprites for own stories and arts.

Now when the Sonic Advance 3 endings have been leaked, there are demos that's almost identically to the stories and sprites sheets this mamber made. This is making a few of us very upset since the old member is a good friend.

I'm not going to allow this to happen. Sonic Team is stealing ideas from us and making money out of it. It's time we steal from them.

I've waited for this a long time now, and I have the right stuff to make them cry. Sonic Team made their biggest mistake yet. They're gonna pay for it.

And who are you?

Do you have ANY proof? Pictures, Video clips, Game footage? Anything?

Oh, and what if it is real?

The Sonic Advanced 3 ending screens have indeed been leaked. This upsets me alot. But this also means that a playable version of the game (ROM) has also been leaked in order to obtain these screenshots!

I am very angry.

Sonic characters are the property of Sega. Therefore, when you create a Sonic related idea, it isn't illegal ... but by making it public, you really shouldn't get mad at the game developer for using it. It's their character.

Second, this is hardly the first time this has happened... Shadow bears some striking similarities to a very old fan character I recall...

For the record, I'm not the one using the Yuji Naka account like I was the last time. I think it's Fiz, but I can't see Fiz's IP to check.

Fuck no. There is no legal documents saying that the Sonic characters are property of Sega or Sonic Team.

Standard copyright laws. The Sonic character officially belongs to Yasahara, since he came up with the original concept.

The game is copyrighted. Not the characters. Well not copyrighted alone. You're not allowed to copy the game without permission. So what? I'm not allowed to copy my school book either, not that I want to.

As for Sonic Team stealing other ideas is not allowed as long as they haven't showed up on their site.

They're thieves
