Leadership and initiative . . .


Now is the time -- I like to think -- that those in charge of both the GPA and GAMA are creating plans to pool publisher resources. Why? In order to design a document that instructs publishers on how to publish material that is compatible with D&D. This imaginary document will, before release, be run through multiple lawyers (and editors, just because) so that it is as perfect (and legal) as it can be.

The guidelines and instructions document will also include a compatibility logo. The entire package, once completed and signed off on by the legal team, will be made available to members of the GPA/GAMA.

Yeah. This is exactly what a publisher association would be working on right now. In my mind.

Awesome idea.. this way if a publisher makes a mistake along the way and WOTC sues them... they can go and sue both GPA and GAMA to make up for any losses.

I couldn't tell if you were being sarcastic or not. Because really I can read both good and bad into the idea.

Good in that.. well helping publishers including providing indirect legal advise is a great thing for a publishers organization to do.

Honestly, it is good and bad and, in a way, sarcastic. I don't think there is a one, good approach. Someone will devise an idea that works, though. It's going to be a very interesting summer, because if a publisher decides to press ahead and publish without the GSL then there's no reason not to start publishing PDFs in the next month or so.
