It looks like City of Titans and Heroes & Villains both sprung from The Phoenix Project to revive COH and the supers genre in general. They both reference City of Titans and The Phoenix Project in their public materials... this spooks me.
Has there been any legal analysis done regarding who has rights to use this... does anyone have existing trademarks or copyrights on this stuff? I know it probably doesn't seem to matter much right now, but if one or both become commercially viable and there is money involved, the other group may start eyeing up its legal options. I just would hate to see two labor-of-love fan projects strangle each other to death over stupid legal hangups.
