Mate. I'm sorry this has caused much distress for you. I'll stop our dialog right here, because i don't think it will take us anywhere.
Please. It hasn't caused me "much distress". I simply care for the well-being of indie developers because I am one. Your care for them is questionable.
Let me just repeat one last time:
We gave the outlist of the firm as held by the Trade court of Croatia, which holds all the viable data and it is far better evidence then some website anyone can pay to forge or whatever. Using this information people can:
-sue the firm
-ask about it's legal standing in the country
-ask about it's financial status
-contact us personally
-check out if we are who we are
Isn't that good enough ?
You can repeat whatever you want a million times, it changes nothing. Some link to a site in a language that pretty much no one here can understand is absolutely nothing.
I said: "Furthermore, you can't compare this to a newspaper ad because by reading a newspaper ad a person isn't automatically agreeing to anything, so the level of acceptance and responsibility is completely different."
Wrong. All kinds of advertisments, no matter the media (if available to the undefined wide audience) belong to the same definition. Law defines an advertisment as: the invitation to make an offer based on its directives. It's a statement in which the parameters held within need to be accepted by the other party in order to further the legal situation. Every advertisment is actually legally binding to a party that placed it (in this case - us!). If you answered to our ad, and we refused it for no good reason, you would have right to be financialy reimbursed for all the damages resulting.
Not wrong, 100% right actually. I don't need you to define anything for me. I've made a good living in licensing and contracting. FYI, laws are not the same globally, and transference of responsibility and intent are different everywhere. This is a very important part of the equation, and one you clearly don't understand.
Also, you missed the point entirely. Here is what seems to be going over your head... THIS IS NOT A NEWSPAPER!!! LOL! HELLO!!!??? This is a website forum. You have to pay for a newspaper ad which means that they have to get some sort of verification from you (at least in many places in the U.S. anyway). You didn't pay for anything here. If I read a newspaper I've agreed to nothing. If I call you and give you an example by responding, I've agreed to nothing. Only if your ad stipulates that my action means I agree to a term do I actually agree to a term. Problem is, unless you've taken out a big ad you're not going to have enough room to jam some legal jargon into it.
But the biggest point you continue to miss is that your approach was bad form. So whether it was legal or not isn't even the biggest issue, it's that it was unprofessional. You don't understand, it's hilarious that you don't understand, but you don't understand. You can't come into a forum and on the first post talk of automatic acceptance terms and giving up publishing rights, lol! Are you out of your mind?
Like Ashley said, if you're serious sign a contract like REAL professionals would do it. Only scammers would put up the kind of stuff you have here.
You say you've created board games or whatever. Which ones? Name them, with links where they can be bought, the names of the manufacturers and contacts. If what you claim is true, you can easily provide that in split second.
