RE: Equestria Tales
Only if you hurt their marketing, anyone will search for copyright infrigement.

even blizzard did not sue any private wow servers until they started selling items for money.

but anyway, if he makes the game really good as in gameplay, because I can see the graphics are good for a game that follows animation he could try and offer it to hasbro http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Little_P...p_Is_Magic and become a developer. and earn very well as currently there are a lot of adult male/female that watch that cartoon, which is a little disturbing, but it's a good market.

It's up to the IP owners whether they want to sue or not, commercial or not. I don't know why you wouldn't just try and make this an original IP and play it safe? All you have to do is change the character a bit more.

Play it safe. That is all.

I middle in talking with Hasbro - I already found some sponsor, who would pay for game production if only I get rights to MLP. If everything go smooth, I buy Esenthel licence soon, if not... then we will see.

i am wondering if it is very important to say game is based on my little ponny. you could easily workaround need of rights by saying that game world is world of cute anime-styled unicorns.

example: runes of magic is a total rip-off of WoW, however they dont use words like 'warcraft' and such anywhere and they are free to rip off all they want.

As an aside project meant for fun, I don't think he'd have too much to worry about. The gray area might come in if it's used in any thing that even has the slightest whiff of commercial gain. I think it would be great to see it showcased as an example of the Esenthel Engine's capabilities and like the idea of it getting a project spotlight, but it may be prudent to err on the side of caution and simply remove mention/reference of MLP influencing the style. Simply drop all reference to it in name, and there would be less of a problem, I'd think.

its supposed to be a unicorn no?

im fairly sure the horn is distinctive enough to suggest its not actually a pony that shoots fire balls from its mouth. but i dunno, maybe they hold the IP for Unicorns.
