Hi Jason - personally I think it is it good for the business (that under US
law the idea for a game is NOT protected by copyright). Like so many
creative industries, what we all create in the way of games is *mostly*
derivative. By that I don't mean directly copied, but that every new idea
is born out of other influences, needs and experiences we have. A new
version of Centipede would have to give something new and distinct to the
user - not just to satisfy the lawyers, but to make it worth playing at
My tuppence worth, as we say over here.

I've often wondered about the legality of creating something like
another centipede game - this may be interesting to others who have
wondered about it as well.
Happy game makin'
