# 1 Questions regarding the EULA.
12-02-2010, 01:12 PM
The EULA states that you may not use New Game Materials to reference any drugs (legal or illegal) or medication.

Does this mean that you are not allowed to reference drugs or medication that exist in real life, but we are allowed to make references to drugs or medication that exist within the Star Trek IP?

Can we make references to any of the drugs or medications listed at Memory Alpha?

Drugs and treatments (MA Link).

Imaginary Medicine from Star Trek = okay

Real Medicines and Drugs = No go

The big reason is that Australia has a terrible classification where the game would get restricted if they catch real-life drugs in it (this is why Fallout 3 had to rename a lot of narcotics).

Well it is star trek, and it is not real, so.... I would say yes.

This is okay.

Real-life medicines are not - nor are real-life drugs.

The EULA should be copy and pasteable. And not be displayed over that curiously stippled background.

Interesting points to consider, alas from memory so I may have interpreted things wrong.
  1. Do not discuss political affiliation.
    Does this include blatantly obvious metaphors?
  2. No real life characters, even historical.
    No Space Lincoln? Say it ain't so!

References to Trek Medicines should be ok, but please do not make references to any real world narcotics.

Legal or not.

Thanks,

I suggested some time ago (and hope they listen) that I think it would be smart to handpick a list of public domain works that can be referenced in the Foundry.

Y'Know, Shakespeare, a collection of Greek myths, some non-fiction works with stock historical personalities.

I'd advise against saying "All Public Domain works" because it varies by country and some may be legal but run into libel issues, etc.

But I think it would be worth consulting an archivist for a "safe" list of works that may be referenced in The Foundry here and in other Cryptic games.
