> The legal issues of how that license is enforced. If I purchase a license to produce a product and then let that license expire I will no longer have control of my game to edit which is basically taking ownership of my product produced under a valid license.
No, we are not taking ownership of your game. The game and your content is yours and we have no legal stake in it.
> If that game is licensed to a publisher for mobile or consoles and a bug is found the author could be in legal trouble if they can not edit that game and you are tying Scirra into contacts that may happen between the game author and publisher.
You can edit the game, just pay to have access to our software.
> If Scirra was to go out of business or just stop renewing license subscriptions that could cause serious legal issues for authors and publishers.
What serious legal issues specifically?
If the game designer can not edit that game because Scirra goes out of business or just stops renewing subscriptions that can interfere with contracts the game designer has with publishers.
Game designers invest huge amounts of time into creating a game format they may use for next versions or other games and again if Scirra goes out of business or stops renewing subscriptions their work would be locked down so you are tying yourself into game designers product as I see it.
Can we please see a copy of the license/contract?
