Thomas -- what are the restrictions for the SIG DVD with all the
accessible games on it? Robert, do you have this year's edition? If
not one of us can mail it to you. Or would it be easiest to just look
up the games online and give you those links? Sounds like time is of
the essence. Let me know!
Copyright is a whole huge issue and I'm not a legal expert (although
I get asked so many legal questions with regard to lawsuits I'm
starting to think Law School was a better idea than getting a
PhD...). :) Let me see what some of the IGDA attorneys can tell us --
maybe there are a few legal primers out there on the web for games.
I can't find on the forums where to go to post things on top secret
about accessibility. Do you have a direct link to a forum topic on it
or easy way to search (perhaps I could search for your postings if
you gave me your username -- I'm vrgrrl)
