The idea that "on the internet"==public domain is an incredible newbie
error, if it's an error.

"Character names" makes it sound like wholescale ripping of
copyrighted artwork. Are these things unofficial linux 'ports' of
windows games?

I hope we don't have more games with ripped artwork, but I suspect we
probably do.
