Getting lost in fantasy maps
Shove your patronizing.What good little boys and girls you are. You know US copyright law so well! There's no question that she "broke the law". Those good boys at the Mystara Piazza get a nice pat on their little heady-heads for turning her in. Maybe Hasbro will give those nice boys an awesome little gift certificate for their service to corporatized culture...
Her theft of ideas had little to do with the law at first. It was about her work looking so much like it was set in Mystara that Mystara fans were duped into buying it because it resembled the object of their fandom. When asked about the resemblance she insisted everything was the object of her imagination and completely coincidence.
When someone owes their work on the work of others so directly, honor would assume acknowledging the obvious heritage. That is where the Mystaran outrage grew from, it escalated to narcing on her when she raised the stakes to threaten suing people for "lying" (her claim) about her use of ideas.
