- This is a freeciv list, not a copyright or politics discussion
list. Please stay on topic and please do not feed the troll.

No, this is a genuine long-term issue for Freeciv developers, who
ought to plan for the possibility of a collision.  As Linux grows
its user base, and Hasbro starts looking at Linux to make some $$$,
there's a good chance that they will decide to take some action.

Agreed. We should certainly look into this more carefully. Given Hasbro's track record in this area, it's best to be prepared.
