Regarding Copyright and Intellectual Property


This is a 100% fan-made web series and we felt there was no better place for it to live than on Steam. We are making no revenue from the project, not ad revenue, donated revenue or any other kind. Any donations we receive will directly fund the series. We will eventually make all the content available to everyone. It's for fans, by fans. We all got together and spent our money to make a Half-Life fan film. Marc Laidlaw, writer of Half-Life, when specifically asked about our first film 'Enter the Freeman', replied, We’re humbled that we inspire so many people to undertake these epic projects. We have gotten years of enjoyment out of these creations.' Gabe Newell said: 'If Lucasfilm had taken all the assets they had created for Star Wars: Episodes 1, 2 and 3 and released them to the fan community and said ‘you guys go and make three 90-minute movies', in aggregate the community would have built better movies than George Lucas did. I'm not being hyperbolic at all. I mean literally they would have made better, higher quality entertainment than he did. The key is to connect the dots for the community in terms of giving them the tools that they need.'
