If someone joins a project and donates a storyline and Name, and then is kicked out/leaves. Isn't he/she entitled to take his/her material with them and use it on other projects?

"Yes" is the easy answer

No. Team Demise (Leader Orion the Fag) Threw a temper tantrum and kicked out Hellbent. We were working on a doom1 project and since he came up with the name Fire On Phobos, we agreed it should be our episode name. Orion on the other hand thinks that it is his and does not care to get rid of it. He now claims it is his property and none of the doom community can do anything about it.

Well, it depends partially on what he said. If he contributed it to you guys for you to use under any circumstances then you can use it. If he reserved the right to it then it's his. If he didn't say anything besides offer the suggestion, I'd say it's still his.

Ok let me explain this out. Hellbent and me were working on a doom1 episode without a name. He joined team demise (a different team) and donated the name "Fire On Phobos". They used it. Orion currently got in an argument with Hellbent and kicked him out. Hellbent wanted to take the name "Fire on Phobos" with him for our episode. Orion is now claiming that we do not have the right to use the name "Fire on Phobos". Hellbent created the name and isn't it his right to take it away from Orion and use it for his own projects?

I guess if you want to be legal about it, he could, but that doesn't excuse him from being a jackass.

First of all I didn't kick anyone out. A member of the team was asking people like Ralph to join my team without my permission. I said I wouldn't care if he would ask me if it was ok first. However instead of apologizing the member decided to quit.

I am not denying that he did create the name like Ralph is saying I am. I am just trying to make people understand that the member submitted the name to demise, meaning that demise is the new owner of the name. Also, I have no problem with giving him the credit for it since he did think of it.

That's all.

I curse a lot, I even curse when I am happy, you can ask him yourself if you don't believe me.

I used caps after he got pissed at me for his own mistakes. It only seemed right cause all I wanted was a simple apology, and I was getting bullshit instead. Just trying to get him to read what I'm saying instead of letting him flood me with sarcasm is all...

not what i saw. The first thing i saw was.
Chesterules: Ralphis is gonna join our project. He wants to come on IRC for a bit
Orion X Navas: YOU ASKED HIM TO JOIN?
Orion X Navas: Who the fuck does he think he is??
Orion X Navas: Next he will want me on one knee giving him sex.

Or something of that sort

Ralph you're a lamer, editing my msges... how pathetic. You took out a nice deal of information from that. And you also changed what I said. You smart boy you.

DONATED
You can't donate clothes and then take them back! After you donate something, whoever gets it owns it.

Grow up ralph, you're immature even for a 13 year old. Not like I'm takeing all of the maps he made, infact I'm not takeing any. I just would like the name for the project and the story to remain the same. I also am giving him the credit for them since he isn't a part of the team anymore. No reason for a fight like this.

Hmm, oddly enough I'm the leader of a few Doom team effort groups and I hope I never encounter shit like this. I've already had some people jumping in from other members and I think it's great (wait 'till you hear the original soundtrack!).

It all depends on what level of stuff they contributed. I mean, if they made any levels, sound effects, songs or graphics or whathaveyou, it would be in bad taste to continue to use this material without their specific permission. Not even asking and just using it anyway would make you a serious dickhead.

Intellectual property is a much tougher thing to regulate. Did they think up the idea behind half of your mod, then you kick them out and keep it there? If so, you had DAMN well better have their name written all over it so the community knows exactly who did it.

Then again, if they were spare weight and all they did was think up a name or two anyway they were essentially useless but filled their role to it's fullest. That is also a problem, I'm sure... getting TOO MANY people in a project, bad attitudes are bound to show up and phuq up the whole shabang.

Exactly, so now you can hear my point of view. Actually, you can see the conversation that Orion and I had. This way you can make 100% objective decisions on who is being the jack ass and who should get what. One thing I do want to put in that is my point of view: Ralphis said I *donated* the name FOP to Demise. I did no such thing. It's not like I said: "Orion, I am donating the name Fire On Phobos to Demise, it is the property of Demise now. Whatever happens, it forever belongs to Demise." We were a team, I suggested a name, we both agreed on it. End of story. I left Demise, and I think I should be able to take everything I did in Demise with me. That means the levels I made, that means the *parts* of levels I made, that means the stories I wrote and that means the names I come up with. I could even say that Orion can't use additions I made to levels he made to make his levels better, but I don't care to do that. The story I wrote was *his* story. He thought it up, I merely just put it into words. So I don't think I should be able to use the story for me and Ralphis's episode, if I wanted to use it, even if the words to write the story are mine. However, I do think I should use the name Fire On Phobos for the episode ralph and I are making, since it I thought up the name. I think that covers most everything in regaurds to legal stuff. At least I can't think of anything else at this time. Now for the conversation that Orion and I had that made me to want to leave Demise.

Chesterules: Well, I guess I learned my lesson.
Chesterules: Because the way you need to run things, and your need to have 100% say and control and bossyness with this team, I regret to inform you I will no longer be working on this team. I will be taking my name: "Fire On Phobos", the write up of the story and my wads with me. I will be joining Ralphis. He will be taking the textures back as well. Good luck figuring out what you're gonna do without the textures. And it's a shame it has to come to this. I hope we can still be friends. Although I'm guessing that's not gonna be possible.
Chesterules: ~weeps~
Chesterules: you there?
OrioN X NaVaS: chester you can go fuck your self
OrioN X NaVaS: the story is mine, you may not use it
OrioN X NaVaS: as for the rest take it and don't bother msging me
Chesterules: well - I won't use it - cause you're right, it is yours
Chesterules: but you can't use what I wrote
Chesterules: you have to rewrite the story yourself
Chesterules: since those are my words
OrioN X NaVaS: you're blocked
OrioN X NaVaS: cya

As far as I can tell from Hellbent's reply with the irc messages in it, orion said they couldn't use the story, but they could take the rest of the stuff. So I don;t see how he can tuen around and say he's keeping it. I think Ralph and Hellbent have every right in the world to use the name.

Orion why don't you just shut the fuck up and leave him alone. He gave you permission to use that title and he as just as well take it from you forever. Now stop that arguing!!!!!
